The BEST Screenwriting Podcast

For three decades I've aspired to write screenplays. However, as a single mother and the owner of an agency that books professional speakers, celebrities and notable presenters (I'm an expert in the industry), along with one challenge after another, life kept getting in the way. Still, I immersed myself in the craft whenever I could (I own practically every book ever written on screenwriting) and had a couple screenplays in the works. Finally, I was able to get serious. In doing so, I recently discovered screenwriting podcasts. Without a doubt, Jacob Krueger's "Write Your Screenplay" podcast is my absolute favorite. Within the last month, I've listened to every single episode. I truly appreciate Jacob's unwavering wisdom, his uncanny ability to dig deep into the psychology of a film, the spiritual way he looks at things, and his infectious voice. He's as much of a screenwriting instructor as he is a sage, a philosopher. Jacob Krueger is not only is helping me to be a better screenwriter, he's helping me to be a better human being.

A Real Resource

I have been screenwriting for nearly sixteen years now... and what I have come to learn is that the art of screenwriting is not just formulating words and imagery onto paper with an expected execution of plot points to simply tell a story... but more about the ability to study and absorb the human condition(s) that surrounds us all and reflect it back in story to either touch the soul or poke the brain.

It is evident that Jacob is of this belief and I love how he nurtures those that listen and inspires those that dare to apply!

Mentorship = Shared pool of knowledge = Refined craft

Final note: It’s easier to get drafted by the NFL than it is to break into the screenwriting industry. If this statement discourages you then get out now! However, if instead it has the opposite effect and you see it as even more of a challenge then I welcome you to the beautiful madness that is story telling! ;)
