In this episode, the two Matts go to court for murdering the momentum of a story through excessive wordiness, get interrupted by a dog's barking numerous times, discuss the varied definitions for "moon" as a unit of time, and talk about world-building via as you go along, or "ad hoc," in our second-to-last episode in our extended set about world-building. What are the benefits to building the world of your story as you go along? What are the things that can go awry? How much of the style of the story can you change, or how much do you have to stick to the standard theme? When will the audio quality ever be normal for either Matt Donald or Matt David for an extended length of episodes? We discuss it all, while continuously building up the lore of the show as we go on, and talk about Star Wars, Ratchet and Clank, Jak and Daxter, and more about Matt Donald's mysterious old story, Wildlife of Tomorrow.
