Love listening.

Enjoy the honesty and observations. Not your average cookie cutter writer's podcast.

Hits the nuts & bolts. Fantastic!👍

Great ‘cast, best one I’ve found on the topic. Hits the nuts & bolts and Stays on message. Doesn’t lose focus and start getting bogged down in ‘coffee chatter’ that can be all too frustrating. Excellent ... 5⭐️s 👍
