Great for Writers and Readers
Tim does a great job of just talking to the authors he interviews like he's hanging out with them at a coffee shop rather than sitting in an office on Skype. The interviews seem more down to earth and relaxed than most author interviews you hear - which is awesome. Hearing authors chat about their writing process give the listener a lot of great stuff to glean for their own writing. Tim also shares about his writing journey and it's great to hear things he's learning and tools and books he is discovering to help him become a better writer. Great stuff.
