Ryan Godsey ,

Talks about things I wish other writing podcasts did.

The hosts of this podcast are experienced writers with an interest in making their writing careers into their only careers. As such, they devote a portion of their podcast to financial independence through writing. I wish more writing podcasts discussed the business side of writing the way this one does.
