You’d be doing yourself a disservice to NOT listen

The questions the host asks are so insightful and spot on. I listen to a lot of podcasts about the industry and writing and they all pale in comparison. I’m floored by how incredible it it. Truly. I’ve learned SO much.

Better than Scriptnotes

It’s nice hearing reps talk about writing from their perspective. Feels more useful for those trying to break in than how to write advice.

Best podcast for aspiring screenwriters

Scripts and Scribes is the best podcast out there for aspiring screenwriters. Period. The information gleamed from Kevin's interviews has provided me with invaluable insight into the inner workings of the industry and has gotten me many read requests from notable managers and producers. Highly recommend it for those serious about pursuing a career as a screenwriter in Hollywood.
