Thoughtful content, but not always easy to access. Not for beginners.

This is a good podcast. The instructor is very knowledgeable and she has clearly given A LOT of thought to the content she produces.

The issue with this podcast is that it is relies heavily on jargon and assumes a high level of baseline knowledge. The way she moves through content suggests that she assumes you have listened to enough of her previous podcasts to know what the second plot point is and where it falls in your story and what it needs to include, for example.

That should be easy to fix by listening to old podcasts, but there is not easy way to search them by subject.

And there aren’t clear on-ramps to access her content. It’s not organized in a way that makes it easy for a new listener to drop in and get up to speed.

If you are newer to writing, check out her books. They are much more helpful to new writers, IMO. Again, a good podcast. But it’s definitely (if not necessarily deliberately) geared toward experienced writers and has a steep learning curve.
