The Drunken Odyssey with John King: A Podcast About the Writing Life
About This Show
Join author John King for eclectic interviews with writers from a variety of genres, including fiction writing, poetry, memoirs, and journalism. From literature to genre writing to the movies, all writing is up for discussion. In particular, The Drunken Odyssey features discussion of all aspects of the writing process—not just the published manuscript, pristinely presented to the entire literate world, but also the scrawled notes and tortured drafts that lead writers there. In long-form interviews, writers discuss their process and the way that writing has influenced their lives. Besides this interview, each episode also features a short memoir essay from a writer about a beloved book, plus John King responds to listener’s questions and observations about the writing (and the drinking) life.

The Host is Obviously a Narcissist
Arrogant and condescending, the host poses questions that are often belittling and snarky. After listening to a few episodes, it became clear that the show is really all about this dude's ego, and not the writing life, as it claims.

Great interview show for writers and readers!
Here's an awesome opportunity to dig into a lot of authors and their stories. It's almost like a college course on the podcast medium...a must listen for those who enjoy reading contemporary authors or are interested in writing.
