There’s tons of great writing advice in books, of course, but when you need your writing wisdom to come with a dose of I’m-not-alone-RIGHT?, podcasts are the best. You get to feel like you’re part of a brilliant conversation, but you don’t have to change out of your pajamas first.
These are my faves for writers right now.
