Such a neat idea for a podcast

I only just discovered this podcast a week ago and have already flown through all the episodes. Very inspiring and insightful stuff. I’m looking forward to more!

Love this podcast!

I just listened to episode 14 with Nate Staniforth. Joe, the conversation was magical! You have a talent for interviewing and I like how prepared you are for each interview. As a first time writer, this podcast is so helpful as an inspiration. Both you and Alice seem so committed to discovering wonder and sharing it with us. Thank you for doing this work even when it feels lonely!

A Great Tool

I listened to Episode 9 of your podcast.

I particularly enjoyed the first part of the presentation, which covered the analysis of Hiccup, I learned quite a bit from that part, and it had me analyzing my own work. I would very much like to listen to the other 8 podcasts, focusing on that portion of the program. Unfortunately, it lasted a bit less than 14 minutes, which also included the introduction. But it was exquisite.

Part 2 was interesting, as Joe interviewed Joshua, however I did not find myself as engaged with the interview, as it seemed to focus on his life's story. He is an extraordinary man, who I can learn quite a bit from, but nevertheless, I found it a bit long.

The advertisement around minute 42 for the Write Practice seemed particularly out of place, especially as it used some of the music that accompanied the introduction. I assumed, at first, that the podcast was over. And I am not sure why it was placed there. I do believe that promoting the site is of the utmost importance, however I would suggest it be at either the beginning, or the end, or both.

The final summary of Joshua's life was a bit more interesting than the overall interview, although I have to admit, that I rarely listen to, or read interviews. I particularly liked how Joe and Alice boiled down the key takeaways from the interview, while still allowing the listener to make their own judgements.

In conclusion, it was rather interesting, if a bit slow in the middle.
