One of the best!

This podcast has been such a wonderful addition to my writing education. There is an emphasis on craft and process during the weekly Thursday interviews, and a short motivational podcast each Monday. Many, many thanks to Brian for producing a unique product for writers, and the community he's fostering with it.

Loving this!

If there is anyone I wish I could hear on your podcast right now, it’s Michael Punke (The Revenant, Last Stand). Keep up the great work and good luck with the podcast!
