  • Great podcast

    I really like this podcast - informative & entertaining. Great to get some insight into the writing/publishing experience. Small criticism- Wish Ali had defined what ‘legal read’ means as I had no idea.

  • Superb podcast!

    This podcast is such brilliant quality and I’m sure it is going to take off in the same sort of way Literary Friction has. Love the conversational smarts and intelligent interviewing of the two hosts, and the guests and analysis/book recommendations are so insightful and interesting. Love! ❤️ (Kate D)
