In this episode, the two Matts sell a writing robot that quickly and predictably goes rogue, list their favorite and least favorite historical explorers, point out all the times fans forgive an evil character because they're good-looking, and talk about third-person omniscient writing in the last of our set about point-of-view. What constitutes third-person omniscient compared to other types of POV? What are some of the benefits of writing this way? What are some of the things writers should avoid? What lengths will Matt Donald go to profess his love of third-person omniscient writing? We discuss it all, with the most proper etiquette and poise, and talk about Star Wars, Spirited Away, the works of Christopher Nolan, and Clash of the Titans.
