Writers Who Don't Write

By Jeff Umbro & Kyle Craner

Hosted by Jeff Umbro and Kyle Craner, this project began as a way for the two of them to get over their own fears of writing, and slowly morphed into an inspiring multi-year project to tell the stories others find difficult. Each episode brings a well-known creative into the studio to discuss his or her career, their newest projects, and one story they’ve always struggled to tell. Guests include Andy Weir, Lev Grossman, Stephanie Danler, The McElroys, Claire Messud, Mark Manson & Tim Urban, among dozens of others.
