My Favorite Podcast

This podcast just makes my day. It is so fun to get inside my favorite author’s head on how he thinks about storytelling using pop culture as examples instead of just writing as they do in their other podcast. As I’m not a writer, writing excuses is interesting, but this is the perfect podcast for me.

A straight up FUN podcast

I love this podcast so much!! I look forward to a new episode each week and I always am smiling or giggling while I listen. My favorite part is that each weeks topic is such a random fun surprise and so I never know what to expect. Brandon and Dan are such an iconic duo and I highly recommend everyone give this a listen even if they aren’t readers. It is a little nerdy but everyone has a little nerd in them ;) so I think most people will enjoy their insights and fun banter.
