  • Edgy Reviews Show #42:
    Carrie Runnals hosts this podcast dedicated to talk show-like interviewing of authors. Words to Mouth is a refreshing podcast, and Carrie delivers content using a pleasing voice. She has an ability few interviewers ever achieve: She can adjust her interviewing style to best match the topic of discussion. Carrie’s voice is capable of expressing great excitement, curiosity, and sympathy. In addition to regular episodes that last about 30 minutes in length, “Quick and Wordy” episodes are also available and run about 10 minutes in length. Notable interviews include those with Joshilyn Jackson, J.C. Hutchins, Grammar Girl, and Jason Van Orden. Because Carrie asks each author how he or she became a writer, how his work was published, and about his writing style, listeners learn a great deal about the book-writing process. For those simply interested in reading, this show is a great way to find out about authors whose books one may not before have read. Another plus is that interviewed authors regularly donate books for free give-aways to listeners. Our only recommendation is that Carrie say her full name more frequently such as the beginning and ending of each show.
