Whisky & Words is an exploration of writers and what makes them tick. Hosted by author David Olsen, each episode showcases a different writer at varying stages in their careers, where the writer shares a piece of their work and engages in an in-depth discussion around it. The questions cover all aspects of their creative process; their background, motivations, inspirations and what they enjoy most about playing with words. With writing to entertain, questions to inform and personal stories to inspire, tune in to a new episode every two weeks and be ready to hear from the people behind the pages.

Cosy Yummy Wordy Whisky Listening Delight
I've just listened to episode #1 and so enjoyed hearing Tom Rowe's writing; he writes relationships, cities and how they combine so beautifully. Dave Olsen's old-school meets modern day interview style is delicious, also. Enjoy.
You can feel the passion fo littérature in that podcast; definitely would recommend, very interesting, accurate questions from the amazing Dave O.
Very interesting podcast
A great podcast, which offered fascinating insight into the authors' writing process and the way in which they work. Eagerly awaiting more episodes!
