In this episode, the two Matts do a crossover event with Matt Donald's other podcast Paleo Bites, stumble with our words because we're tired but actually because we're dumb, add in a new sound effect that represents our Patreon, and talk about character personalities and quirks in the second of our set of character features. What constitutes a character quirk? How many boxes should you tick when coming up with character traits? What are some quirks you should avoid? How did Matt Donald manage to do a perfect G note off the cuff despite being a terrible singer and not musically trained in the slightest? We discuss it all, with all our own quirks on full display, and talk about Big Bang Theory, Gods of Egypt, and Magic School Bus. Want to further support the show?
