Suebren from Japan:
I’ve been listening to the podcast for a couple of years now. I really like the author interviews and always find something of interest, even if it’s not my genre. It’s also great to hear Australian accents, and two people who obviously like each other having a good time. What prompted me to finally write a review was that I used the word of the week ‘navvy’ in a short story this week! “The girls wore jeans and tank tops and were tattooed like a pair of navvies” – Suebren
