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.
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!
Great Podcast. I’m not a writer just a reader. I love this show.
