The Alex Cafe explores the world of the writer… not just authors but screenplay writers, songwriters, poets, in fact, any writer since the phrase “The pen is mightier than the sword” was coined.

Authors Dick Gross AM and Susan Berg host the show with contributions from Poet Hamish Danks Brown and the occasional guest writer for interviews, new releases, and live performances.

An exclusive lounge for those who love the art of reading and writing, and when that moment is just right sharing their dreams with others over a vessel containing the elixir of life. Supporting storytellers and those who enjoy…

To say any more would give away the secret!
