A funny, fun, and smart listen
I found myself humming the tune to the theme song for several days after, and reflecting on the smart and funny conversation. More episodes, please!
Yeah Fainting Couch!
I love listening to writers talk about writing. Great music. Great conversation. Great Podcast.
Warm, funny, intelligent!
I usually don't listen to podcasts from start to finish, but this one I did! The discussion is smart and really relevant not only to writers, but to anyone pursuing an art or just wanting to learn more about the literary world. Catchy jingle too :)
