In this episode, the two Matts deal with serious friendship and insecurity problems but in a funny way, celebrate the fabled 64th episode in a series that jokes a lot about the number 64, woe the fact that they had to record this episode twice, and talk about having a massive amount of characters in a story. What are the benefits to having such a ginormous cast of characters? What kinds of genres work best for a cast this size? What do you have to give up to write a story with this cast? Will Matt David's new friend Fred be a mainstay on the podcast? We discuss it all, once again without an appropriately-sized cast because we have no friends but each other (and Fred) and talk about Harry Potter, Tolkien's Silmarillion, Game of Thrones, and Bionicle (of course of course) Have any feedback or questions for our hosts?
