I’m a Podcast junkie. I’ve come to acknowledge and accept that. I make no apologies.
I was thinking about how much I really enjoy some of the podcasts I listen to, and the incredible amount of information there is out there to be consumed and enjoyed. I began collecting Podcast subscriptions in an attempt to fill my brain with ‘stuff’ during my morning walks, and long drives, and during the tedium of housework etc..
At first, the pickings of good and interesting shows were slim, depending on subject matter (I’d listened to all of BBC History Magazine’s episodes and needed more!).
As a writer, finding shows built around helping other writers build up there skills was a must. So, among some of the podcasts I discovered whilst podcast collecting, was “The Roundtable Podcast” (2012) created by Dave Robison, and which is now “Archivos Podcast” (2017). Dave’s enthusiasm is infectious and vocabulary is impressive and entertaining. This man is just “full of frothy goodness“!
This podcast is all about enabling writers (of all levels) to develop their craft through the process of Brainstorm workshops with established and experienced writers, who are also interviewed for writer Insights. I subscribe through iTunes, but listeners can link in through their website too. Check out Episode 1 from March 2012. Six years later, there are over 120 episodes to listen to, and well worth the time.
I have a handful of favourite long-term podcasts, and this is my top choice for Writer / Story Teller development. The show is geared toward storytellers of all mediums, not just writers.
And maybe some day, I’ll work up the courage to request a workshop for one of my stories! ❤
