Shannon-writing ,

Fun and great for aspiring SFF writers

Really enjoy the dynamic among the hosts - inclusive, playful and thoughtful. Some great interviews with authors as well as craft of writing episodes.

Bwholeton ,

Too much banter before getting to the point

Literally 12-15 min of just back and forth banter before getting to the point of the podcast.

Worx2 ,

Inspiring and relatable conversations

I’m a new listener, and I’m so glad I found this podcast. It’s an encouraging balance of helpful advice and genuine vulnerability. The hosts and guests are exploring their own craft alongside listeners. It’s wonderful! Also, it’s a huge bonus that Marshall has a background in sound engineering or production because the recordings of their convos sound great.
