Great podcast

I miss your podcast. I hope you are doing fine

I almost feel guilty that it's free!

When you attend a University, there are an infinite amount of fees. This is free advise from a bare boned honest teacher that shoots straight no matter the recoil. Thanks Paula for your time and helpful advise on our writing! I hope you know how much you're appreciated.

not spectacular

it's a writing podcast -- that automatically makes it at least decent. But the name itself made me a little hesitant to try it (I mean, "The Writing Show" isn't terribly original), and it turns out that the title is actually a pretty good indicator of at least the episodes that I've listened to so far. While the topics seem interesting, I'm not sure they're handled in a way that's most effective/efficient for the amateur writer who's listening, nor are they very captivating. My favorite writing podcast is called Writing Excuses because it has 4 or 5 different writers from different genres, which provides a more dynamic coverage of the topic than just one person sitting in front of a microphone. Again, though: it's a writing podcast, so it's at least decent. Just not superb.
