First Page Podcast Reaction Episode

We talk with Lindsey Danis about her experience being workshopped on our podcast, the changes she’s implemented, and whether she wanted to reach through the screen and shake us for not getting it.

We also answer Lindsey’s questions and talk about how much self-deprecation can work on the page (versus in real life) and how to create (and why you should try to create) an emotional and aesthetic range.
