An impassioned plea in this episode for writers to consider where they're going for feedback on their stories -- coming from a recent experience I had while preparing a story for the The Stories We Tell podcast. As writers, we have the right and a responsibility to write "the other," and anyone who tells us that we can't better have a good reason for saying that. Identity politics can influence or even harm your writing.

The show is brought to you by Who Killed Julie?, a fiction docu-drama about the disappearance and life of Julie Macklemore.

If you're enjoying the show, please tell someone. The best way, besides forcing them to listen, is by leaving a rating and review on Apple Podcasts.
