Such a fun podcast

I really enjoy this podcast. I like hearing what Jason is up to, and his interviews with authors. But my favorite part is when the authors read their chapters. Wonderful, fun podcast for readers and writers.

Great for discovering new authors

Love this format! It's a perfect balance between getting to know an author and the story behind the book and hearing the author read his or her work aloud. Jason is an engaging host who is great at unearthing all aspects of his guests' life and work. And the show covers almost every genre imaginable—any reader can hope to find her new favorite titles by listening to the Sample Chapter Podcast.
