    121 - Can't Lit - Dina & Jen - What's the Point?

    121 - Can't Lit - Dina & Jen - What's the Point?

    Hello listeners! Dina & Jen are chatting about stuff. Again! This time they're in conversation about the point. What is it? Like, really, what's the point? From writing in general, to specific projects to what they think the point of their own work might be they get down and dirty in the bog of self-doubt and self-loathing, confusion, and some ways they get out of it. So get a tall glass of bog water by your side and listen to this episode!

    Welcome to 2024! WOW! Can you believe it? Feels like the future. Sort of. I don't even know. DIna and Jen catch up and talk about raccoons and aquatic mammals and dog poop! Then they get into the books and stuff by telling tales and discussing lies they've been told by other writers. The untruths, the blanket statements, the one and only way to write. Listen in to hear our iles! We're sure you've heard your own lies too.

    119 - Can't Lit - Dina & Jen - CHAOS

    Yes, it's true. We've been on an unplanned hiatus. But we're back and this episode is (basically) the chaos episode. We have no theme and we're talking about whatever we want! Britney, protests, IBS. This episode has it all! Listen now, if you dare!

    118 - Can't Lit - Nathan Whitlock

    118 - Can't Lit - Nathan Whitlock

    Hello! If you love summer, like Dina, you're probably sad it's coming to a close sooner rather than later. If you hate summer, like Jen, you're probably relieved! But no matter what the season, Can't Lit is here for you. And this month we talk to the one and only, author and podcaster (authors and podcasters, they're just like us because they are us!), Nathan Whitlock! We talk about his new novel, Lump (out now with Dundurn Press), guerrilla book marketing, dark humour and writing, the process of working with a sensitivity reader, and Jen compares Nathan to Jane Austen (sort of), and somehow that turns into Nathan being the Beer Goggles Jane Austen (copyright pending)! Also, one of the most controversial "What Can't You With" ever?! You be the judge! Listen for a good time!!
