Our episode title comes to us across two and a half centuries:
"We must, indeed, all hang together or, most assuredly, we shall all hang separately." —Benjamin Franklin
We've already established that you're planning to write an ensemble. This isn't an episode about the pros and cons of ensembles. No, we're here to talk about how an ensemble story can go wrong, leaving the characters to hang separately rather than hanging together.

Liner Notes: It happened again! We referenced the Ty Franck/Daniel Abraham episode, which we recorded at GenCon Indy several years ago, and again we can't find a link to it.

Credits: This episode was recorded by Marshall Carr, Jr., and mastered by Alex Jackson.
