I had never heard of these folks, but it was mentioned on an episode of The Creative Penn Podcast so I checked it out. I tried 2 episodes and couldn’t even get half way through the 2nd episode.
The three hosts, Sean, Johnny, and Dave have co-authored a number of successful series and they apparently have a quite a following. Unfortunately, their writing talent does not really transfer to the podcast medium. Instead, it sounds like 3 guys hanging around drinking beer for an hour or more and occasionally they mention something about writing. The ADHD nature of this podcast doesn’t work for me. I have my own drunk and rambling friends to hang out with in my spare time.
They also advertise proudly that they are “4% on-topic Guaranteed!”
Astonishingly, they have a rating of 4.9 stars on iTunes.
After reading their reviews, I find that that this podcast is like cilantro. No middle ground. Your mileage may vary.
On their website, they appear to have a selection of popular podcasts from the archive so I may dive in there.
Length: Hour plus.
Format: They start to chat about writing and publishing about 20-30 minutes in. I’ve decided to try a third episode and just fast forward to the thirty minute mark. What I like: they start with sharing about something awesome. I definitely like that approach but they go on and on.
Rating: 2 stars
