Rings of Power Review - strong discussion!

Every episode of this podcast is informative and entertaining. I also enjoy that pace. Excellent review of Rings of Power. It feels like Kristy Leigh Lussier isn’t a fan of the diverse casting choices.

A great interviewer across a wide range of related topics

I love that this podcast covers both niche and more generally related topics for screenwriters. Beyond a focus on the craft, it also provides solid guidance for writers and creators of all disciplines. Geoffrey is a great interviewer and host!
