Rate Show

Thank you for another season!

I am so glad your podcast is back for another season. My thriller friends and I never miss an episode. We love #TheTZ and its host #TheDT!

Promise us #TheTZ will play on!

There are so few podcasts, quite like The Thriller Zone. When you have a show with prolific authors, and a host who talks TO the audience, not AT them, it's just SO refreshing. Promise us "TheTZ" will play on in '23!

The Year End Show is a HIT!

I thought your podcast was good. Now, I think it's GREAT! I've been an occasional listener for a few months, but now I'm addicted. And this latest Year End Special was just that. Keep up the fantastic work, I can't wait to see who's on in '23. Happy New Year!

Can't wait to see what TheTZ has in '23!

I'm excited to see who the new year will bring to TheTZ podcast. This is my favorite podcast. Congrats David on keeping us on the edge of our seats, and learning something every week!

Cant go wrong!

Entertaining, perfect radio voice to listen to. Great work, well done!

Great Interview!

David Temple’s laid back style of interview makes for really engaging conversations. A must for mystery and thriller fans.

Congrats on 100 Episodes!

Host David Temple has proven what great guests and hard work can accomplish. I never miss an episode and my friends listen too. Go make another 100, DT, I'll be listening. We all will!

I Love This Show!

David Temple is engaging and affable. His highly accomplished guests are as interesting as the thrillers they write. I look forward to each new episode.

HOUSE creeped me out!

The interview David had with Riley Sager was SO MUCH FUN! Great questions, belly laughs and a writer who creeped me out…with an incredible thriller in House Across The Lake. More please!

Insightful Podcast

David Temple's podcast is a fun, entertaining, and perceptive look at the publishing world—a weekly injection of inspiration and information from thriller writers, narrators, agents, and industry insiders. Don't miss it!

Love this Podcast

Not only was this one of the best podcasts I've ever been on, but it has been invaluable to me as a writer to listen to other authors speak about the craft and the business of writing. David Temple is the real deal!

David is a Dude, Bruh

It's a privilege to be part of The Thriller Zone legacy, because that's what David Temple is creating from his Sacarmanga style lair in San Diego, sunny California; an audiovisual chronicle of the thriller authors of our time. Watch it, listen to it, be part of it. Don't miss The Thriller Zone.

A podcast that cuts to the chase!

It’s nice to finally find a podcast that doesn’t waste time with mindless chatter. I enjoy how host David Temple shares insightful observations when he talks with all my favorite thriller authors.

Adam Hamdy was a treat!

What an insightful, down-to-earth individual. The 'off the beaten path' conversation made it real. What a great discussion.

Great Give and Take

Appreciate the genuineness of both David and Adam, along with the give and take. It's great to learn about authors and their motivations, insights and stories. Looking forward to reading THE OTHER SIDE OF NIGHT.

David Pepper

David clearly knows what constitutes a "winning" novel. It's twofold: 1. A great story with 2. Relatable characters. If novice authors focused on these 2 simple goals, their first novel would not be such a daunting task!

Love the Author’s Perspective

I appreciate hearing about books from the author’s perspective, and the interview with David Pepper provided that insight. Appreciate hearing about authors I’m not familiar with to help me determine what to read.

Another Gem of an interview

So much good insight from an industry pro!!!

Narration of Novels

Kudos!! Your interview with Scott Brick was a rare opportunity to experience the craft of a long time book narrator. His insights were invaluable.

Must Watch with David & Nick Petrie

Excellent interview as usual for David and sage advice from Nick! FIVE STARS A must watch for writers and fans of Peter Ash! @_NickPetrie_ @TheThrillerZone

Meg Gardiner

Your discussion with Meg intrigued me to the point that I watched (for the first time) the film "Heat." It was a masterpiece! The purchase of the novel "Heat 2" is now the next item on my agenda. The adventure continues.

Sarah Pearse

It was an absolute FANTASTIC interview. You hit it out of the ball park with the variety of questions (literary and personal) and your ability to actually listen which is a rare quality in most podcasts. Your effort is greatly appreciated. I look forward to your next guest

Best new-ish podcast ever

It’s been years since I was an obsessive reader of mystery/thriller novels, but The Thriller Zone has revived my addiction. I’m ordering too many books, but I can’t help it. The authors interviewed are too interesting, the conversations led by host David Temple too engaging. I blame him.

Very enjoyable and worthwhile!

I recently watched David's interview with Dean Koontz and I thought it was excellent. David brought great enthusiasm to the discussion and I thoroughly enjoyed their exchange of ideas. My only wish is that it could have been longer, as I could have listened to a discussion of theirs for hours. Highly recommended!

Finally found my thriller podcast!

Just a note to say how much I enjoy your work. I finally found a podcast for thriller fans and writers that is professional, informative and to the point. I am a debut author (political thrillers) due to be published spring of 2023. Thank you for a great program.

Congratulations on First Anniversary

Congratulations to one of my favorite podcasts and go to source for the what’s happening now in the world of writers. Dave’s brand of questions bring out great information and a source of fun for his guests. Great job! The continued best to @davetemple and the @thethrillerzone !!

Top Shelf Podcast

This is the best listen for fans of thrillers, books, and podcasts in general. David Temple provides insight into the work and entertainment for the listener, all while providing space for the guest to get into the action. I’m an avid listener and occasional guest who will come back as often as he’ll have me!
