Smart

I am so happy I found this podcast. Each episode offers casual, intelligent conversation about writing and the writing life, with authors whom I admire as well as those whose work is worth exploring. This podcast should be on every writers playlist.

A Great New Writing Show!

Super happy to have found this show via Twitter. Talking about writing is a really tought subject sometimes, in part because it can get boring. But the hosts for Writers Drinking Coffee really bring life to the subject with their fun banter, their passion for themes and ideas and writing-ness, and their shared writings. I'll definitely keep listening to this show as it progresses because I want to see where they go from here!
