A wasted opportunity with a great author

I came to this podcast to listen to Rebecca Yarros’ interview and was so disappointed. The hosts spent over half of the show talking about nonsense that had nothing to do with the author or her book. They all seemed unprepared. There were awkward silences, like they didn’t even know what to ask. I felt that it was bordering on disrespectful to the author to have her show up for an interview and record this show. What a wasted opportunity.

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.
