Late and Drunk to the Party: Kameron Hurley’s and Chuck Wendig’s Epic Two-Part Return to Ditch Diggers!

Hey, folks. I’m incredibly late posting about this, but when the first episode went live and for several days after the fact I was in the middle of the woods in Ohio with no internet access (it was bliss). Upon returning they were jackhammering the pavement in our complex non-stop, during which they hit a water main and killed all WiFi/cable, and I had plumbers coming in and out of the house and damaging our drywall and it was not…

A very special DITCH DIGGERS featuring Kameron Hurley and Chuck Wendig is now live!

Late last year my longtime friend and fellow badass wordslinger Mur Lafferty and I created this new podcast thing called DITCH DIGGERS (in fairness Mur did/does most of the creating and I just kind of show up). We wanted to do a podcast, not about the craft of writing, which Mur covers just fine by herself on her long-running I SHOULD BE WRITING podcast, but about writing as a job. We recorded the first episode on the fly and kind of…
