Great interviews with authors.
There are so many interesting books that never make it to the top of The New York Times bestseller list. This podcast consists of interviews with established authors who may not be household names but who have written some very interesting books and lead very interesting lives.
Gil Roth does a great job interviewing them. I guarantee you’ll not only enjoy the interviews but get some great ideas for your next read.
Gil Roth brings his breadth of knowledge to comics, graphic novels, artists, authors and consistently hosts in-depth and insightful conversations rich in texture, nuance and humor. He’s the kind of guy you would like to share a story and a beer. Enjoy!
Great host, great guests, great production. Glad I found this podcast. Keep it up, Gil.
