Fabulous podcast full of insight!

What can I say. Pillar has amazing guests, asks insightful questions about them and their craft that we all want to know. She brings her thirst for writing and learning to each interview and gets to the core of what her guests are about. Absolutely one of the best podcasts on writing for television and the big screen... which as we speak doesn’t exist. But we can hope that one day we’ll see features in a large dark enclosed room with 500 other strangers and watch in glean the writing of amazing screenwriters and directors!!

Worth more than Fort Knox!

I am writing this review because of my frustration! I can ONLY give this podcast five stars out of five. I wish that I could give it ten stars out of five because it’s sooo incredibly helpful and worthy!

Watch How Stealing is Discussed

If it is okay for artists to be inspired by and use ideas from others, it has to be okay to recognize when your idea has been used. Constant attempts to say there's no way that's hapened fells disingenuous to me. I've written about a very personal experience and then seen that same experience played out in stories I had never heard of, that came out before my time. But there's a limit. You may not have legal recorse, but we should encourage artists to tell the truth about where there inspiration came from.
