WGP Episode 59 Dr. Robert Williscroft, Hard Sci Fi

cropped-podcast-logo1.jpg
Dr. Robert G. Williscroft is an adventurer, deep sea diver, nuclear submariner, polar explorer, and author to name a few of his accomplishments. See his website here at this link to see what all he has done in his life. He will educate and entertain you all in the span of the first five minutes of our interview. Robert’s many achievements encourages us to greater heights with our work by the knowledge that we CAN DO THIS! We are only limited by gravity, as I am known to say.

Robert has written six books and has been interviewed by 41 radio talk shows on 38 radio stations across the nation, several of them twice or more. I am very lucky to have him on Writer Groupie again, and believe me, you will love this show.
