Miz Karina ,

The best podcast for writers!

No other podcast cuts so deep when it comes to craft and the true struggles of writing work that is honest and true. Every single interview is a gem. Thanks!

Lovely inside perspective

Great host and some big names are interviewed. I’m more into CNF (interview more nonfiction folks, please!) but I like a lot of the fiction writer interviews just the same. The repeating questions at the end are fun! I like when they talk about a passage that change a lot or that they worked hard on.

Love This

I would reccommend this podcast to anyone, writers, readers and just plain thinkers. It's so fascinating to hear what today's best writers have to say about their work and the world we live in. Please invite your friends to listen.
