The Rough Writers Podcast is a podcast about writing, from the novice's perspective. Hosts Allison and James will talk about their experiences with writing and publishing as they move from relative obscurity to hopefully fully fledged writing careers, and share what they have learned about the craft of writing and the business of publishing along the way. There will be drinking, swearing, and hijinks.

||ExplicitThanks for the Memoiries.||What We’re Drinking: Golden Gate Gose from the Almanac Brewing Company. James liked this, but he didn’t think it was as good as the other sours I’ve brought him.

||ExplicitWriting to Market: How to Sell Your Soul in Six Easy Steps.||What We’re Drinking: Wassail Mead from Honeymoon Meadery here in Bellingham, Washington.

Funny and Down To Earth
The chemistry these two authors have is fantastic. Dry humor, sarcasm, alcohol and education all in one hot mess of a podcast.
Nuanced and insightful
Always fun, educational, and profane--all my favorite things!. They frequently have local writers as guests, so it's great to hear different perspectives.
Smart, Funny, and Useful
Writers talking about writing and all sorts of things related to writing. A great podcast!
