SAFTAcast Welcomes Daniel M. Shapiro to its 35th Episode


 The SAFTAcast, a part of the Sundress Academy for the Arts, has released its 35th Episode featuring poet Daniel M. Shapiro. The new episode and all previous episodes and promos are available on iTunes or for free download. They can also be found on the podcast’s blog at

SAFTAcast prides itself on being a writer’s podcast that is not about writing; in fact the subject of writing is immediately ruled out as a possible conversation topic. These programs are more focused on learning about the creators as opposed to the creation. This often inspires candid and no-pressure conversations about whatever may be on their minds. Host Scott C Fynboe brings an electric charge to the program with witty insights that spur guests on and eccentric promos for each upcoming episode. You can view the promo for the upcoming episode here.

Scott C is a former radio disc jockey from upstate New York. He received a PhD in Literature and Creative Writing from the University of Southern Mississippi and currently lives and teaches on Florida’s Treasure Coast.

Guests on the SAFTAcast range from Sundress Publications authors to widely published poets and writers from around the country. Join Scott C. as he and Shapiro talk teaching, baseball, and the nature of being among “Generation X.”
