Episode Seven: Danielle Paige Embraces Fan Fiction

The BinderCast is the only podcast exclusively devoted to women and gender non-conforming writers and their careers. In each episode, co-hosts Lux Alptraum and Leigh Stein tackle the essential questions of making it as a writer. Produced by Jennifer Lai.

Soap operas. Romance novels. Fan fiction. They’re some of the most derided genres of writing – and they also happen to be the forms of writing most readily associated with women. On this episode of The BinderCast, Lux and Leigh check in with best selling author Danielle Paige about getting her start in soaps, updating The Wizard of Oz for the modern era, and why you should always end a scene with a bitch slap.
