Much-needed information, music is distracting
Great content and interviews, but the background music is driving me a bit batty.
A great start!
This show is exactly what is needed if you're interested at all in illustration or storytelling for children's books! Shawna and her guests offer much practical advice and insightful comments. It's a good show to listen to if you're feeling discouraged, frustrated, or confused about breaking in, or if you're just curious about how it all works. I can't wait for the next episode!
These guys know what they’re doing!
Chris and his team know how to have extremely inspiring, resourceful, and focused conversations with these amazing people working in the industry. Changing my life one podcast at a time. Thank you so much for all you do!
