A podcast that gets back to the sticky, awkward, gloriousness of being a day to day copywriter.
The Clever Copy Chats Podcast shares the woes, the ups, the bitty fist annoyance of a client that won’t use track changes, the tips on how to write 5,000 words in 20 minutes because you forgot the deadline, and of course, the real bottom warming stories of great clients and amazing writing that keeps us doing the do each day.

So come with me on a journey through colons and interrobangs.
Through client Zooms and last-minute amends, we’ll have some laughs and learn a thing or two along the way.
