Audio quality is unacceptable

I didn’t even stick around for the interviews. The host’s audio quality is horrible for 2019 but what makes it worse is that his audio is the only audio that sounds horrible.

There are much better podcasts on screenwriting so this one is a pass.

From a non-writer

I’m not a writer, at least, not for entertainment’s sake. Part of my job is to write policies, procedures and presentations for a small business. Interestingly, I recently discovered this terrific podcast and realized that my seemingly mundane and standardized writing can still entertain, and help influence and inspire others. It’s inspirational to hear how professional writers create, how they use language, and how they pore over their work. It makes me want to be a better writer, and to curate my work to engage the audience beyond what they are required to read. I can’t wait to get started; thanks for the kick I needed, and keep up the fantastic work.

Good but their format needs help

This is kinda funny for a “writers” podcast. The content is great, but the way they title their podcasts is terrible!! They start with the name of their podcast - duh, I already know that. Many, many words in they FINALLY get to the subject, so on Sonos I can’t see it! Nor can I see it on pocketscasts. I have no idea who their subject is. Almost funny. Don’t you want me to know who your guest is? Writers lesson #1 - don’t bury the lede!!
