Great podcast.

I just listened to the episode with Dave Franco, great podcast and now I’m hooked on this show. I just recently started at The Los Angeles Film School and was given the newest Final Draft as a part of my coursework. I am incredibly pleased with everything FD puts out and was thrilled when I got the email recommending this podcast. Very informative and entertaining. It gives me inspiration to keep working at my craft. My name is Matthias Southwick, and one day, I’m going to be on this show. I’ll see you then.

From a non-writer

I’m not a writer, at least, not for entertainment’s sake. Part of my job is to write policies, procedures and presentations for a small business. Interestingly, I recently discovered this terrific podcast and realized that my seemingly mundane and standardized writing can still entertain, and help influence and inspire others. It’s inspirational to hear how professional writers create, how they use language, and how they pore over their work. It makes me want to be a better writer, and to curate my work to engage the audience beyond what they are required to read. I can’t wait to get started; thanks for the kick I needed, and keep up the fantastic work.
