    Fantastic. The best screenwriting podcast.
    Al’s questions are always very thoughtful and draw out insightful answers from his guests. I find I have to stop the episodes every few minutes because there are SO MANY good ideas I need to joy down. Brilliant show, brilliant guests. Also: totally professional production. The best! Bravo.

    Love What I can Hear
    I’m really enjoying these interviews and am glad I found this podcast. Only thing is I have a really hard time with the volume. I have my speaker (that I listen to other interview pods on without issue) maxed out, and I still really struggle to catch a lot of what is said. Please adjust mixing levels so I can enjoy the whole ep!

    Common man, You're distorting the narrative by characterizing every male character as a preditor. Its beyond obvious youre pushing your ideals on listeners and sometimes testing the limits with the writers you interview. Please give it a rest. Its much more unsafe being a man. We do all the dangerous jobbs and die in way in greater numbers. Leave it alone. Other than that, its great.

    Absolutely Inspiring!
    As a college student who is an aspiring screenwriter it is amazing to hear these stories and be inspired by industry professionals. It’s also great to be exposed to amazing tools to use as a screenwriter who is still getting their feet wet in the industry. Script Apart has been my daily listen and I absolutely love it!

    I enjoy hearing the inception of these stories.
  • Kayrahrae
    I love almost everything about this
    5/5 stars for the insanely cool content but I’m begging the creator to read this: I find it super difficult to listen when you are talking because your mic pics up everything. I can hear ever mouth sound, like how moist your mouth is and it’s MADDENING like I can hear the moistness of your lips separating when you speak please fix 😭

    The best interviewer
    This is absolutely my favorite interview style screenwriting podcast. I’ve listened to so many interviewers talk with screenwriters and Al is SUCH an amazing interviewer. The balance of being personable, respectful, asking the best questions and bringing out the the best answers from the interviewee without overly inserting himself into the conversation/interrupting/etc. These interviews are informative, delightful, and so helpful for an emerging screenwriter. I can actually relax while listening instead of being filled with secondhand social anxiety like I normally am. Ha. Thank you Al for being so wonderful!

    Insightful and inspiring.
    Well done Al. You dive deeper than Tom Daley and unpick the tangle of screenwriting so we can learn from other writers’ experience, where they were, what they were thinking, what was going on around them, and how they got the story from script to screen. Writing can be a solitary calling and you create a feeling of community. Thanks.

    Loved the Dead Poet’s Society episode. The writer is so humble. This movie changed my life for the better. I mean I’m literally a different person than I would have been had I not seen the movie at 15. Much Love!

    “Needless to say, there won’t be a Script Apart episode on CRASH anytime soon. (snicker)” –Al Horner
    “Needless to say, there won’t be a Script Apart episode on CRASH anytime soon. (snicker)” –Al Horner. What were you thinking? Wow. Needless to say… you weren’t. Clean this up, Al. Awesome job scoring points with your guest, whose film lost to Crash at the Oscars. But classless job leaving it in the episode.

    A wonderful podcast for film lovers
    This has quickly become one of my favorite podcasts. Imagine being able to attend a Q&A with the writers of your favorite movies, where they answer questions about how they transformed unpolished nuggest of ideas into the amazing final screenplays we love, hosted by a likable, intelligent moderator. I just saw an episode for Terminator 2 appear in my feed and was so excited to listen, I knew it was time for me to leave this review as a recommendation and a thank you.

    A ton of great guests and it’s not as educational as you may except but the long form convo really opens up the writers and you get a lot of interesting tidbits. Plus it’s pretty funny
  • stranded
    Really enjoyable
    One solid episode so far, good interview with a lot of perspective on the story development process. Looking forward to more.
  • Coolgramps
    Not bad. Swell.

    Incredible insight on the writing process
    This podcast is already going to be one of my favorites. It’s got tons of inside knowledge and pointers on the process of screenwriting.
