Download: GOWM_008.mp3

Episode 8 is an interview with Philippa Ballantine. Philippa, or "Pip" to her friends far and wide, is THE premiere podcast author from New Zealand. In addition to her own acclaimed novels and podcast versions of those novels; she has appeared as a voice actor on a number of other podcast dramas. She is truly a delight as writer, voice actor, and interview guest :)

I was honored for this podcast to be an official internet stop for promoting Philipa's new book. I’m pretty stoked about the book release of “Geist” … especially after reading the first chapter preview – . For more of the Geist tour you can go to with dates. I think you will be in for a treat for all the tour “stops”.

Update: The free preview of chapter 2 is now available at

And if you are interested in the site for “Geist”, it’s at with a link to order the book on Amazon. And yes, I made my pre-order, and I am waiting anxiously.

Update: The Geist book trailer is available at

  1. What a great series you have going here Richard! Every single interview has been simply fun! You have a very natural style that I truly enjoy listening to. Keep up the stellar job.

    Perhaps you should consider going weekly? (I need a more regular fix, lol)

  2. I wish I could do these podcasts more often, maybe one day. In the meantime I'll try to do the best interviews I can, as often as I can :)
