The Ant-Man was taken down after a profitable run by Tom Cruise's latest Mission: Impossible adventure.  And now there are a series of new movies opening this weekend that could easily take its place.  What movies interest you?  Or perhaps you'll stay home and watch any of the new DVD release offerings.  It's all here on a new Weekly Podioplex with Michael Falkner.

Podcast Promos

 

The Roundtable Podcast

Every great story begins starts with a great idea. But… how do you know if your idea is strong enough to bear the weight of pen and ink? You do what we all do… you tell someone about it.  You talk it through, bounce ideas around, and get some feedback.  You have a discussion.

Now… wouldn’t it be great if you could have that discussion with some folks who’ve been around the block once or twice, who have published a book or two, or edited a few novels?  Now THAT discussion would be fabulous!  Think of what you could learn about your craft, the questions you could ask and the answers you’d get!

That’s what The Roundtable Podcast is all about.  It’s about nurturing ideas, fostering inspiration, and getting the creative juices flowing.  It’s also about mistakes and blind alleys, harsh reality and uncomfortable truths.

Each week we invite publishers, editors, and authors to get on the line with a writer who presents an idea on the table… an idea for a story they want to write.  And then everyone digs in, asking questions, pointing out problems, and proposing solutions.  Characters are dissected or dismissed, plots reinforced or torn apart altogether, and hopefully what started as an idea, becomes something more.

It becomes a story… one we’d all like to hear.
