So much fun!!
I've seen the live show in Chicago. Soooooo happy they do a podcast! It's so funny and I love hearing the bouts from the other cities.
Perfect riding-the-L-into-work length!
Write Club is the best live show in Chicago, a city lousy with excellent live shows. The only thing I would change on this podcast would be to include more bouts! What is this one-bout nonsense? Include all the bouts! Luckily host and timekeeper Ian & Lindsay have some delightful banter that I wanted to hate because it wasn't more bouts, but alas, I liked it a lot. Listen to this.
