That Word Chat is a blast every time we do it. It's also a big time commitment for host Mark Allen and show's staff: Heather Saunders, Erin Brenner, Elizabeth Allen, and James Allen. Heather Saunders is the showrunner, Erin Brenner does social media, Elizabeth Allen prepares show transcripts, and James Allen does sound editing on podcasts. All five work hard every episode to bring you a casual, fun, usually professional experience.
What keeps us going most of all is your telling us how much you love the experience. Please consider being part of the team with various levels of support, each with some cool benefits.
