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

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.

Love the new show!

Just finished the episode on Breaking Bad.
A lot of great story telling elements in this one.

And by the way, I’m using my subscription to StoryShop every day!

You guys are awesome!
