Write With Courage!

In less time than your commute takes we bring you a dose of danger from today's exciting writers including Scott Adams, Peter Hitchens and Nick Cohen. “An idea that is not dangerous is unworthy of being called an idea at all.” Oscar Wilde. Your host Thor, mines for stories of previous failures, useable writing tips, and discovers how they got published to begin with! We bring the sort of Libertarian conversation, which happens when you are willing to listen and debate with writers of all political or religious persuasions and none. Might you be a writer with courage?
