I had a blast talking to the one and only, amazingly brilliant Lani Diane Rich about The West Wing on her podcast, Jed Bartlet is My President. We discussed Six Meetings Before Lunch, episode 1.18. Check it out here!

So this just happened… I submitted the first episode of my very first podcast to iTunes. Yay!
Episode description from Jeff Stevens, host of the Creative Stickup:
How’s your novel coming? If you are one of the half million or so crazy would be writers out there who are trying to finish your novel in 30 days as part of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) you’ve got one day left to finish off your 50,000 word masterpiece! Or in my case, a 50,000 car pile up. But it’s done and I have Kelly Jones to thank for the experience. She got caught up in NaNo some 10 years ago and has participated in it ever since. She also did her thesis on it’s power to bring creatives together to create something with no inherent reward attached to it. I told her we do that sort of thing everyday. Find out how NaNo brings out the writers in all of us.
