Hi, I’m pleased to have recently found “Write the Book” (WTB); I’ve listened to 2 podcasts thus far and was impressed by Ms. Shapiro’s excellence in interviewing. WTB is enjoyable. Thank you for WTB. Thank you Ms. Shapiro. (Thank you Mr. Graham for your candor, openness, and much more–it’s hard for me to describe.)
As to talented interviewers with interesting programs, “Write the Book” with Shelagh Shapiro, “This American Life” with Ira Glass, “Speaking of Faith” with Krista Tippett, and the BBC’s “All Things Considered” with Roy Jenkins are my favorites. A podcast for writers that is also excellent is “Writing Challenges” with David Morley, Director of the Warwick Writing Programme (not that I’ve set aside the time to use this marvelous resource!). Thank you to all.
Too, I thank my boss, a science-journal editor, for introducing me to the vast world of podcasts. Thank you Ellen! -K, USA.
