145: Mr. Stay’s Hot Tub Alpine Retreat with Marcus Sedgwick and Dawn Kurtagich
Mr. Stay overcomes his suspicion of writing retreats and joins award-winning author Marcus Sedgwick on his retreat in the Alps and, in a podcast first, interviews him in a hot tub! We listen back to his audio diaries and his interview with amazing YA author Dawn Kurtagich (not in a hot tub).
