Good info, charming hosts
Some writing podcasts are all about the marketing. Others are all about the artistry. This one covers both (all?) parts of the spectrum for career writers. Hosts Lindsay Buroker and Adam Poe are low-key, never mugging it up to upstage the guests. The questions are well prepared and the hosts never talk over each other. Rarely a NSFW or NSFK slip of the tongue—can’t remember any, for real. Some of the casts are technical, as self-published authors have to know computery processes. Very good show.
Excellent content for authors
The 2 hosts are separately full-time fiction authors, and they discuss what really matters to writers who aspire to their status. Some episodes interview authors or industry pros, and some are just the hosts. Always very helpful content.
Great content, poor production
I enjoy this podcast however I wish there was better mics, noise reduction, and maybe a bit of editing? I guess it's dead anyway.
