Pay Attention to that Man Behind the Curtain!

Paul Durham's Telling Lies to Children is an invaluable asset (and a great listen!) to teachers, published authors, and aspiring writers. I enjoy the camaraderie between Paul and the middle grade authors he interviews, and I find his conversational, back-and-forth interview style appealing and helpful--especially since, as an author himself, Paul has important anecdotes to share.

The host openly admits that he lacks the technical skills of other podcasters, but the overall quality remains good. (I'm keeping the rating at five stars because I'm not listening for professional production values; I'm listening for the unique content.) That said, Paul could cut his intro/outro music by around 30 seconds on each side, and he should check his levels to make sure his intro volume is closer to the actual episode volume.

Again, I don't particuarly care about the production quality: After all, chicken coops make decent sound booths. Strongly consider giving this a listen if you're interested in the industry!
