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 ❤️

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.
