    Val and Al – I can’t thank you enough for the regular dose of writerly inspiration your podcast brings! I have a fiendishly long commute every Wednesday, so each week you ladies are nothing short of saviours. As I sit on my half-hour bus after two-and-a-half hours on the train, the podcast reminds me why I’m doing what I’m doing, why I’m in the writing game, what I’m working towards. And to the amusement of other commuters, I’m sure, I often find myself having a little giggle at some of the conversations you have – the chat with Adrian McKinty was a prime example!

    Thanks once again for being wonderful.
