The Value of an Apology with Brett de Hoedt.

Creative Writing Energy Podcast – Episode 11

Apologies are good for the soul, but sometimes it’s difficult to find the words for an apology or know how to accept one. As writers, sometimes we make mistakes, or maybe something we write might upset readers. Knowing how to apologise and the value of an apology is a handy tool to have in your writers’ toolkit. Brett de Hoedt hosts The Hardest Word Podcast – a podcast of apologies. They are heartfelt, beautiful, moving, and some are incredibly well written with poetic language. 

We talk to Brett all about apologies.

About Brett de Hoedt

The host of The Hardest Word was an early adopter of the podcast medium, creating podcasts Hootville and The Anglican and the Atheist in 2004. He was a young kid with a pocket full of pod-dreams.

Alas the dawn of podcasting’s golden age was a decade away and the podcasts withered along with his ego. 

Since then Brett has strutted stages as a speaker and emcee. When not basking in the limelight he consults on marketing and communications via his agency Hootville Communications.

The Hardest Word Podcast:

Real apologies from real people, from all across the globe.The Hardest Word podcast is devoted to the most powerful word in the English language: sorry.
