One thought on “Podcast Episodes

  1. Calvin Gray

    While writing is not my craft, I always enjoy learning about creative processes; this podcast allowed me to do just that, well done! Some of the points made were, naturally, over my head yet I never got that mucky feeling of pretension, only that I was in the presence of some smart dudes who are earnestly passionate about their craft.
    This is such a breath of fresh air when we live in a culture where most “intellectuals” you converse with tend to speak the language and stance of that absurdly ironic and hypocritical “hipster” persuasion.
    Exiting soap box now. Great job guys!
