In this episode, the two Matts somehow make it to FIFTY episodes of this dumb thing, reflect on the origins of the podcast through hillbilly-laden flashbacks, sell a service that provides pets to help with writers' struggles, and talk about manipulators and how to write them. What makes these characters so awesome? How can the reader be the most impressed by their efforts? How can they believably pull the strings of other characters? Will Matt Donald's neighbors ever stop with their 4th of July celebratory fireworks despite it being WELL past the 4th? We discuss it all, with no strings to hold us down, and talk about Sherlock Holmes, V for Vendetta, How I Met Your Mother, and Music Man again for some reason.
