Great show

Great podcast that gives info from self publishing to working for the big 2. A great inside look.

Click click breathing

Good advice and I’ve enjoyed the product in the past but you guys have to watch your production- audio on recent podcasts has been very poor.

Can the background noises!

This cast is usually informative and helpful but several episodes now have had all sorts of loud background noises and children yelling things being moved around etc. it’s super distracting when trying to listen.
