Best podcast about creative nonfiction!
This is an exciting new podcast featuring creative nonfiction writers and their writing. Really interesting to get a glimpse into the minds of writers and how their stories came to be in the world. Each episode includes a reading of an excerpt by the author being interviewed, followed by an in-depth discussion on the topic of that featured piece of writing. Janna Marlies Maron does an excellent job interviewing the writers, and the theme song for the podcast is fun and catchy.
