Something for everyone!
These podcasts offer something for everyone - the aviation enthusiast, the history nerd (me), the book lover, and the writer. I really like how the content is broken down into conversations with the author about the book itself, and also the “Writers’ Room” interviews, that focus on the craft.
Really great short episodes. Just two women talking about aviation and books. A remarkable cross-section of history and modernity. Worth the listen!
