In this episode, the two Matts accidentally beam a signal to an alien planet's transmission spires, discuss the recent US election, finally disqualify a type of work as NOT "writting," and talk about making changes to a show's episodic formula in the next of our set about the pitfalls of writing episodic works. What are some ways you can change the status quo? How can certain changes come across as forced or unnatural? How do you avoid making contrivances that make the story unfulfilling? How many vehicles or other forms of locomotion will Matt David use as metaphors for writing? We discuss it all, while remaining exactly the same drivel we've been for the last hundred episodes, and talk about Marvel movies, Power Rangers, and Matt Donald's next new book Teslanauts, coming soon to Amazon.com! *ding!* Want to further support the show?
