About the Public Display of Imagination Podcast

This podcast features the creative minds of some of the best storytellers to ever leave ink on the page. Each week, the host and the listening audience are taken on an adventure by a NY Times or USA-Today Best-Selling author. In most cases, their latest release is featured, but in every case, their approach to the craft and their overall volume of work is discussed.

Probing questions are asked and secrets are revealed. The goal of each conversation is to introduce readers to their next favorite read and to bring storytellers, of all skill levels, face to face with a reflective thought that might guide them into better writing.

Primary genres include: Suspense, Thrillers, and Cozy Mysteries, as well as a pinch of Sci-Fi and Fantasy. The most recent adventures can be found on the PODCAST HOME PAGE. You can also access a complete listing by author on the Guest List – Alphabetical or the Book List by Genre.

Each adventure can be played directly from the host page. Host pages are designed provide an opportunity to preview an assortment of the guest’s work. We also provide direct links to the guest’s website and social media pages.

If you’d prefer to have adventures download as they are released, you can subscribe to the show through a number of different platforms, including iTunes, Google, Spotify, and Castbox.
