In this episode, the two Matts open with a statement about the protests and how black lives matter, talk about having dreams from when you're a kid and sticking to them, wonder about how old certain comic characters are, and talk about character backstories in the next of our set about character features. What kind of backstories work best? How much of a backstory should you reveal? How much of the backstory should you plan? How mad was Matt David at Matt Donald for one-upping his statement about childhood dreams? We discuss it all, giving our support to our friends protesting injustice, and talk about Joker, Solo, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Megazoic: The Primeval Power (buy on Amazon.com!)
