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.
