Hi guys, I figured I should go ahead and create an archive page for my podcast (I’ve already archived the ten episodes I guest-co-hosted the Narrative Breakdown podcast). We sure have been slow in putting these things out (Five episodes in eight months!), but I always enjoy them when I do. Feel free to subscribe to us on iTunes and rate us and review us there!
In the first episode, I introduce my co-host James Kennedy and we debate about how critical you should be of your own work, based on this post:
In our second episode, James and I debate one step in my structure, in which I claim that the hero should try the easy way:
In our third episode, we broke format for a super-sized episode in which James performed his Laika script with his niece and nephew, than I jumped in to give notes. This episode turned out to be, in my opinion, eminently skippable, but I include it in the interest of completeness...
In our fourth episode, James and debate about contentious dialogue. (Interestingly, I can find no one post where I recommend contentious dialogue. This is the closest I could find.)
In the fifth episode James and I are joined by acclaimed novelist Jonathan Auxier and we debate about how strict you have to be with POV in your prose, based on this post.
In the sixth episode, James and I discuss Dan Harmon’s story structure and Raiders of the Lost Ark:
Hopefully there will be more to come soon!
