Join hosts Christine Daigle, Jena Brown and Kevin Tumlinson as they discuss the week’s entertainment news, including AI that will create audiobooks for foreign titles, Don Winslow’s retirement, and how “no one buys books.” Then, stick around for a chat with AutoCrit’s Daniel Kaplan!

AutoCrit began humbly as the brainchild of an unpublished writer with dreams of becoming an author. She faced a common problem: how could she get expert, unbiased feedback on her writing without breaking the bank? Writers’ groups, critique partners, and other beta readers weren’t at the expert level, and friends and family weren’t unbiased. Getting feedback took time, and the quality of the feedback was hit-or-miss. Hiring a professional editor was an expensive investment, especially for early, unpolished drafts.
