In my Top 3 podcasts for writers and fans!

Looking for podcasts for writers, especially genre writers, I found Beyond the Trope. It quickly grew on me. They have seriously great interviews, on air critiques and always a lot of laughs. They keep it short and sweet and I love listening.

The perfect pod for a new writer

This podcast is great for anyone who is new to writing. They don't only talk about the fundamentals of writing but also the business side of things. I love hearing the inns and outs of the industry as well as the friendly banter between the house. Their guests are great and I'm learning lots!

Way Beyond

Having met Giles, Michelle and Emily, I can confirm: the chemistry is real. What you hear is real relationships and a shared dedication to their subject matter. Highly recommend this show (and supporting them on Patreon!)
