So Much to Learn
I love listenting to all the episodes, but after my husbands affair, the episode on editing your life story was truly timely. I have stood on the edge of the river, googled ways to kill myself, and played with sharp knives, and every time the thought that I don't want my story to end that way pulls me back. Clark is a hero in so many ways. Keep up the great work.
Great show guys, started listening once Clark took over Alyssa's spot on Writership (another phenomenal show), and was directed here. Clark your voice is perfect for Podcasts and you and Peter are great. KEEP IT UP!
I get so much from this show. The emphasis, however, on science fiction and fantasy is getting a bit wearing.
