So information dense that we forgive the audio

After so many years the audio is still terrible, but the content is so strong we all listen and forgive it lol

Helpful!

These short, topic-focused recordings are helpful and to the point, making them perfect for a short commute or just for learning something quickly without trudging through an hour-long cast. I appreciate the interviews with a wide variety of writers.
