The Mug Of Java is full

Jeffery W. Ingram offers a lot of valuable information. I was curious about world building and he has answered countless questions. He also suggests where and how to start. Podcasts are short, sweet, and his voice is not annoying. Thanks

Good Resource

I found this podcast by searching worldbuilding in the podcast app. I find the hosts to be knowledgeable and informative and they have good rapport that is enjoyable to listen too.

I did go back and listen to all of the episodes starting at the beginning and found a lot of information to think about in my writing and as I worldbuild.

Thank you for a great podcast! It is definitely one of my favorites.
