Customer Reviews

Always fascinating

For anyone interested in the craft of writing or the behind-the-scenes goings on of television, this is an essential podcast. Ben Blacker is a great host, always provoking an interesting and thought-provoking discussion, and the podcast has attracted a fantastic range of writers from a variety of genres and with a huge span of experience. Always manages to be both helpful and hilarious, and I look forward to each new episode.

Insightful and Inspiring

This is the best podcast around if you're interested in writing drama for television. Great stories from fantastic guests about breaking into the business and staying there. Ben Blacker is an excellent host, he lets the guests talk but always steers them into the most interesting territory. Explains why American tv drama is so damn good (I'm from the UK and despairing). More episodes please!

One Of A Kind
