4 Screenwriting Podcasts

Here Are The Screenwriting Podcasts Every Aspiring Screenwriter Should Be Listening To:

On The Page

Hugely popular script consultant, Pilar Alessandra’s, informative and entertaining weekly podcast in which she interviews a different guest each week from the world of writing, directing, acting and producing. Definitely one of the best screenwriting podcasts on iTunes.

The Q&A With Jeff Goldsmith

Film journalist, Jeff Goldsmith’s, podcast in which he conducts a lengthy interview with a top screenwriter, asking them questions about how they got into the business, their writing habit, writing process and much more. Unmissable.

Sam & Jim Go To Hollywood

Now defunct, but the 40 odd episodes here are well worth a listen about two regular 30-something guys packing up their successful careers in the restaurant business and moving to LA to try and make it as screenwriters.

Script Notes

John August and Craig Mazin talk shop about all areas on the profession of screenwriting — from the craft of writing, to legal questions, to Hollywood news. Despite Craig’s often annoying “umbrage,” and John’s inability to make it through a single episode without mentioning Big Fish, there’s too much good stuff here to miss.


These are what we consider to be the best screenwriting podcasts on the web. It’s amazing what you can learn on a forty-five minute with the dog, so it’s time to get downloading!
