Three out of five people dream of writing a book. Maybe you're one of them. But what does it take to go from dream to launch? Screenwriter John August (Go, Big Fish, Charlie and The Chocolate Factory) sought to find out as he tackled something he’d only ever dreamed of: writing a novel. From Wondery, A Network Of Storytellers, this is a show about putting something out into the world. How will it turn out? You’ll know when we do.
Surprise, it's a bonus episode! A couple weeks ago, John and Launch Executive Producer Ben Adair sat down at the Los Angeles Festival of Books to give a behind-the-scenes look into the creation of Launch — from their favorite parts of the show, to the challenges of hosting a narrative podcast — and we thought we'd share the presentation with all of y'all. Plus, John has updates on how Arlo Finch is doing, and how the second book is coming along (there's some controversy between "eldritch" and "Eldritch").
