Love Joanna, love Jo Frances.

I have been listening to The Creative Penn podcast since...2012? I listened to her before I was an author, and she gave me hope as a confused college student trying to figure out my life. I listen to her now that I am a full-time author, and she gives me much-needed encouragement weekly. To get to experience this more personal side of her is truly wonderful. It is so neat to hear more about her life and gain insight into her experiences. Thank you, Joanna! You are a treasure.

Stunning poetic potential

The first episode of Books and Travel is a veritable poem of experience and meaning. J Penn has a winner on her hands in her solo episodes, where she seams together a narrative of places and memory to shine light, apparently, on what makes her her (and you you, and me me).

Mileage may vary for interview episodes depending on the guest. There are two faces to this show so far. On one side, the near-spiritual literary tale of place; on the other, tips on where to find the best Sangria. I hope the former wins over the latter more often than it does in the first 4 episodes.

In any event, Penn is a delightful host, always a pleasure to listen to, and longtime fans of The Creative Penn should take pleasure in this more contemplative, meditative presentation.

Moments of sheer beauty. Can’t wait for more!

A whole wonderful new side to Ms. Penn

I have long known and loved Joanna Penn‘s nonfiction work on The Creative Penn, and have been super excited about this new podcast… And the reality of it has blown away even my high expectations.
It’s lovely and relaxing to listen to, and even more so is supporting my wanderlust. There are lots of great places to visit in the world and I look forward to hearing Jo Frances speak on as many of them as possible.
Cheers!
