scribblepost ,

all the best debuts!

this has become one of my go-to literary podcasts! always interesting new authors and a chill, lowkey vibe, no pretensions. i get the feeling adam’s discovering new things along with the listener, like it’s an organic conversation, not overly rehearsed or static

Elizabeth Tulla ,

Fun natural convos

It’s always fun to see where these chats go. It’s so natural and even awkward at times. I love that it feels real and not scripted!

New Favorite Book Pod

I have been loving how this podcast highlights debut authors. There are so many great questions about how the authors came to be published. AND SO MANY craft questions. 🤩
