I love this show. I’m sad that it’s no longer recording. But I have hundreds of episodes to go, so all is well for now.
I am a first time author trying to get my head around not only writing but everything that goes with it and have learnt so much from Tom Corson Knowles’ podcast series. Tom is a great interviewer and knows how to conduct an engaging interview, smoothly transition, conduct deeper discussions and most importantly ask the right questions. His guest line up is phenomenal!
I highly recommend this podcast not only for first time writers but for anyone wanting to take their writing career to the next level.
The sound is ridiculous
It’s a stretch to listen to the podcast. The interviewer has an echo. Just bad. Could be good with some planning ahead. It’s so bad.
