Fantastic conversations about writing!
Thanks to the Drake podcast for pointing me to this gem. The conversations about writing & fishing are insightful and interesting. Jason Rolfe asks great questions and, most importantly, let’s his guests read. What a treat.
As a previous review stated, I appreciate hearing the guests read their works. The guests are interesting and accomplished. As the podcast grows, I hope he can get more consistent sound quality and reduce the filler chatter. The running Yeahs, Uh-huhs, and Yeps are distracting.
I managed to power through all available episodes in a few weeks. It’s a treat to not only get to hear great fishing stories read aloud by the talented authors, but to also hear their own personal stories about how they got where they are today. Nice work Jason! Thanks for helping share these rad stories and people.
