Fun show to fire up your writing !

Such a fun listen! Jeff and Kyle are easy and enjoyable to listen to along with their amusing and good hearted guests. I espeically enjoyed listening to Sara Novic share about her getting published journey. She has such a great attitude about still being wowed by her publication, her teaching, and her continuous commitment to writing more novels. Energy exchange between guests and hosts feels very warm and friendly! Thanks for the inspiration to be open to possibilites due to the people who you know~ CaraF13

A Great Podcast for Aspiring Writers

This is a very enjoyable podcast for writers and those who admire them. The hosts are very relatable and ask the questions I would ask of their guests. Sometimes, I need a little boost of encouragement/confidence and this show provides it. I especially enjoyed the episodes with Colin Barrett and Nathan Hill. Look forward to more!

New fave binge-listen.

I found WWDW when doing a search for a writer I was interested in, and I absolutely loved the episode and kept listening. It just so happens that my career is in books and publishing, which translates to a bit of writer-chat fatigue. So I was surprised to find myself so engaged and entertained that I wanted to hear episode after episode. I like Jeff and Kyle's self-deprecating style, and the writers they bring on the show would likely not get on my radar in other ways. So I learn, I laugh, and I end up feeling inspired about my own writing on the other side. Great work and highly recommended!
