Bad Audio

Love the podcast, but audio is needs improvement.

Awesome Info!

Love this podcast! The episodes are short so it’s super easy to devour tons of them. The information is great; it tends to be things I haven’t heard before, which is awesome. The majority of the episodes I’ve listened to have really useful information, which is great because I feel like a lot of other podcasts are hit-or-miss when it comes to their content. Love this podcast!

Too Realisting

So, I've been listening to your podcast for the last two months and I have to say, you guys are way too realistic. I love your humor and the realistic view of being an author. I was looking for something new about writing besides giving instructions and I found your show. This show is really good!
