Excellent Podcast!

CNF has become one of my favorite podcasts overall and my favorite podcast devoted to writers. The conversations are practical and seem to connect with my interests. Down to earth and frequently inspiring. Keep up the great work!

Each episode has a unique personality

I first checked out the CNF Podcast a while back when I somehow heard about the interview with Laura Hillenbrand (!). I'm sure she's been interviewed a zillion times, but you could really hear her enthusiasm as Brendan drew drew her out on her love for researching and interviewing in particular. I've now listened to about two-dozen episodes. Obviously the guest are different, but I appreciate Brendan adapts his questions - and questioning style - to each guest. Each show has an absolutely unique "personality." As someone who writes while working another job, I also admire Brendan's hustle (in the best possible meaning) in airing this podcase every week. It's a welcome source of inspiration & ideas.

Excellent way to stay connected and learn from others!

I recently discovered this podcast and after only a few episodes I'm already hooked. Brendan is easy on the ears and his interviewing skills are top notch. I love being able to hear other writers talk about the trials and triumphs of writing. Listening to this is a gift I give to myself -- it's encouraging and helps me make the choice to keep on writing. Thanks for inviting others to the table.
