New episodes every month!

The editor will give their input after each story, and even a possible yes or no. Hosts Greg Walloch & Mark Allenwill act as emcees, keeping things moving at an irreverent, funny pace, poking fun at the publishing and entertainment industry itself, and the very idea of "pitching" and "being published."
