Writing advice from people who know and people who don't. Practical skills meet ridiculousness as I talk with some of the best writers who are willing to actually be on this show with me, and get their input on how to live the writer life.

I lolled many times

This has to be the funniest podcast I have ever heared. I lolled (laughed out louded) many times. It also gave a great and memorable example of how to outline a novel I don't think I will ever forget!


Refreshingly witty and fun! Loved it!

Ridiculous and strangely satisfying

Kingdom Pen Radio has finally debuted their first podcast, and one thing can be said for it: it certainly has a defined tone.

The thirty-minute debut is packed full, with admirable studio quality considering that it is a startup podcast series. To approach it from an entirely technical perspective, the editing was excellent; the background music occasionally hindered rather than enhanced the dialogue, but it was a minor point.

The show's style was characteristic of the host; confusing and hilarious at the same time, it wandered but also hit a few points. The debut guest was a self-described writer who doesn't do anything, a Canadian chap by the name of Ezra Wilkinson. While this was a basic, tone-setting episode - there isn't a lot of advisory substance to it - it did hit some fundamentals about writing and had at least one serious moment, as well as a very interesting discussion about the Hunger Games.

Where it really shone was in being absolutely ridiculous. I won't spoil the beats, but the show entertained like a drunk Scottish brawler in a poetry contest. There were a few moments of golden creative comedy - the evolution of "Canadia" being one of them - and those pretty much carried the whole episode.

This isn't a podcast to stop your life for. But if you have a few spare moments and have a tolerable resistance to radioactive weirdness, this is absolutely worth checking out.
