Love Writer’s Bone!

What a thoughtful podcast! I love hearing Daniel interview authors. And I love that most of the episodes are so short! I can digest bite sized episodes quickly ❤️

Great podcast but the first five minutes are all advertising

I want to appreciate that hosting a podcast comes with expenses, but I just spent five minutes listening to advertising before getting to any content at which point I no longer really wanted to listen to the podcast. I suppose I don’t understand doing a podcast this way? Why not spread the advertising out throughout. Or maybe it’s done on purpose so that we can fast forward to the first five minutes, but as someone who’s relatively new to the podcast I honestly didn’t get past the first five minutes because I got tired of being advertised to.

Where are the women?

I like the show a lot, but where are all the interviews with women? Talk about man heavy! Mix it up, Gentlemen.
