Refreshingly Thoughtful

I was interviewed by Jon for this podcast, and was blown away by his preparation. If you're looking for a nuanced, thoughtful conversation about a book, this is your spot. So many hosts never read the material that they're discussing in advance, which leads to a subpar dialogue. But with Jon, he digs into the meat right away. Big virtual hug to Jon for putting so much time and energy into this!

Curiosity Quench

I love Read Learn Live because of the “curiosity quench” I get after listening to an episode! I always want to know what authors are thinking as they write, what inspires them and a general peak into their world. My favorite one so far is Mike Reiss, The Simpsons and Springfield Confidential Ep.41. I now know about the rule of 3 in comedy writing, how many rewrites a scene or movie might take and writers often don’t get credit for the work they do. Excited and curious for more!
