Whisky & Words


Whisky & Words is an exploration of writers and what makes them tick. Hosted by author David Olsen, each episode showcases a different writer at varying stages in their careers, where the writer shares a piece of their work and engages in an in-depth discussion around it. The questions cover all aspects of their creative process; their background, motivations, inspirations and what they enjoy most about playing with words.

With writing to entertain, questions to inform and personal stories to inspire, tune in to a new episode every two weeks and be ready to hear from the people behind the pages.
