The Worst Writer in the World

The Worst Writer in the World

Meet Rufus & Howard. Rufus is an English teacher with a degree in literature. Howard is an unemployed idiot. One of them spent their entire childhood writing stories and scripts. Unfortunately, it was Howard.

Welcome to The Worst Writer in the World; a comedy storytelling podcast in which Rufus attempts to read everything that Howard wrote, while Howard listens and feels increasingly ashamed. Together, they'll probe the plot holes, interrogate the inconsistencies, and use their adult brains to fix the many problems with Young Howard's work.

So that maybe one day, Howard will no longer be known as: The Worst Writer in the World.
