Great in-depth conversations
About the different ways artists support themselves, how they think about money and “career,” and some deeper philosophical discussion about attitudes toward work. Looking forward to hearing more!
Thoughtful, Experienced, and Versatile
An affectionate conversation about writing backgrounds. Mike Ingram is a thoughtful, experienced, and versatile host judging from his success with Book Fight, and only two episodes in, the podcast is making strides to distinguish itself from the field of writing/book podcasts.
I’m a writer and middle school teacher and live far from any sort of “literary hub” so conversations with other working writers is a rare thing. The few artists I do know are hesitant, perhaps embarrassed, to discuss the financial aspect of their lives. This podcast facilitates the conversations I’ve been longing for. Thank you, Mr. Ingram.
