Great even for non-writers / TV fans

I’m not even a writer by trade but love this show. It’s so interesting to hear about the process and the shows and the BTS stories.

Ads cut off the speakers

While I understand the need for advertising to support this show, since the move to Forever Dog the ads have been really disruptive. They break into an episode mid sentence and when the show picks up again it isn’t at the exact spot as before. This is a shame when we’re listening to really great guests like Norman Lear.

Please put the ads at the start and/or end of the show, and stop cutting off the guest

Needs a Better Host

No one cares if you wrote an episode of Supernatural, Ben.
