Speaking of Stories

United States

In Speaking of Stories two writers meet to talk about not only their writing, but even more so about current events, society and culture. Starting from one thing they have in common, the discussion evolves to speaking about a whole bunch of stories. Each episode will feature two writers, one from Sweden, the other one just passing by Sweden, but leaving the podcast behind.
