In today’s episode, we’re joined by Ash from the Ear Read This Podcast to discuss the James Bond book and movie franchises. We get a bit cheeky as we go over some of the more… erm… erotic aspects of James Bond and the kinky weirdness of the creator, Ian Fleming. 

We also talk about the nature of genital torture as well as why we think Sir Christopher Lee is more of a badass than Ian Fleming.

Be sure to check out the Ear Read This Podcast for great episodes about classic literature.

#75: Writing Talk With Author Benjamin Cross Drunken Pen Writing Podcast

We're joined by archeologist and author Benjamin Cross to talk about his new novel, Colony. But that's not all! We discuss a whole litany of topics.  Benjamin tells us what it's like to use his archeology background to help shape the world of Colony as well as how it helped with forming a more realistic setting for his horror thriller. We also discuss his writing process and how it has evolved over the years, the trials of getting his first novel published including working with literary agents and editors for the first time, and how he has been able to build up his social media following and the importance that has with book sales. We also touch on book reviews, creating characters, and the importance of pacing. There's a lot of great stuff in this one!
