I appreciate the nuggets of wisdom that I’ve been able to get over the last several years of listening. But the podcast has lost its way and its value. Too much rambling and very little content. I used to be very interested in their upcoming projects even though it’s not my genre because they described the process and struggles. Now it’s just a drinking game where I take a shot every time one of the boys says “we can’t talk about that“ or “that thing with that name that’s not ready“. Nonetheless I wish them much success.

Dang! These recent reviews are harsh!

I reviewed the show a long time ago and tonight while listening I decided to look at the reviews. OMG! I can’t believe how rough they are. Those people don’t understand. I know you guys have grown and I appreciate the direction you’re moving in. Happy for you guys and wishing you much success

A big infomercial for their next product

have been subscribed since the first episode on April 26, 2012. I haven't been listening much lately since they switched to The Story Studio. These guys were great when they were first getting into self publishing, but recently it's all about selling services. I'm sorry, but if you were really successful with your fiction you wouldn't have to hard sell so many products to your fellow writers. It was nice while it lasted guys. I've hung onto the very first episode in case I ever need to listen back for inspiration when these guys were truly into writing. "How to get your words out into the world without contending with agents, publishers, or any of the other gatekeepers in traditional publishing." Remember that?
