Episode 115: Mightier Than the Sword #16 (with Stephanie Spaulding)

This week, on Mightier Than the Sword, Steph and I talk about letters. Letters have a long and newly relevant (we’ve got a letter story that resonates with a modern political scandal) history, as Steph reveals. From self-expression to storytelling, letters are revealing and informative, and we are fervently hoping our listeners will share their letters with us! In this podcast I also read a snarkily hilarious string of faux letters by author Libba Bray. Writers everywhere will laugh along as they feel her pain. This episode is for lovers of classical history and modern humor. Tune in. And please, write to us at with questions, insights, observations…we mean it when we say we want to hear from you.
