In this episode, the two Matts bow to the glory of an edgelord teenager's writing, fight over who does the awkward segues, accidentally turn the volume up a bit too high, and talk about writing populations affected by whatever large event happens in your story in the last of our set about incredibly minor characters. What are ways to effectively show what an incredibly large group of nameless characters are going through? How can you work with such a large population that it might as well be a statistic? What are the ways to condense it into smaller pieces to simplify it for your readers? Who will tell Matt Donald that he's using the word "compartmentalize" slightly incorrectly? We discuss it all, while afflicting a vast population of podcast listeners with our nonsense, and talk about Infinity War, Mulan, and Cats and Dogs for some reason. Want to further support the show?
