In this episode, the two Matts air a very serious update in the world of writting news, discuss the dissonance in our moods versus the weather while recording, celebrate the soon-to-be new unclehood of one of our co-hosts, and talk about naming characters in the first of our set on various character features. What are the things to keep in mind when naming characters? How does a name's meaning work with coming up with a character? What about names that are of completely fantastical origin? How many relatives of exotic lands does Matt David have in his mutt blood? We discuss it all, with the benefit of sharing our first names to keep things simple, and talk about Harry Potter, Spider-Man, The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and BIONICLE.  Want to further support the show?
