The Thursday Throng

‘Throng’ n. – A multitude of persons or of living beings pressing or pressed into a close body or assemblage; a crowd.

Between 2012 and 2020 I interviewed a few hundred authors. In 2020 I changed it to a podcast which took a break for a few months and will be restarting in April. Below are the links the written interviews in date order. I have some more to add and links to update, so keep an eye on the page to see which ones pop up next!
