Meet Your Hosts


Carrie Zylka

Carrie wants to live in a world where everyone knows what a podcast is and everyone subscribes to hers. A world where people immerse themselves in literature via spoken word. A world where audio books come bundled with Starbucks gift cards and laptop batteries never die.

As a writer with more than 200 podcast episodes published, 100+ shorts stories, 6 novels (3 that are actually completed and 3 she just pretends are done) and more than 1,000 articles written, she decided to combine her love of words with her love of audio.

When she’s not creating entire galaxies or launching new podcast endeavors, you can find her somewhere outside. An avid outdoorsman and horse lover it’s not uncommon for her to weave her love of nature into a story and you may find more than one character riding a big black horse who is the spitting image of her own.



Alice Nelson

Alice Nelson is a wife and mother of 3 girls, which sometimes makes it hard to write amongst the chaos and insanity, but somehow she manages. For 6 years she’s been a staff writer for DVD Verdict, the leading DVD review site on the web. Alice is also as a contributing writer for the top literary journal, Short Fiction Break, and co- moderator of The Writer’s Hangout, a flash fiction weekly writing contest on LinkedIn.

Alice loves to write suspense and horror stories, and although new to podcasting, she believes her stories are a perfect fit for the medium. Currently, Alice is editing an e-book of her short and flash fiction stories.

Alice hopes that putting her stories in audio form will introduce them to a larger audience of literary lovers that will eventually lead to bigger and better things.
