In this episode, the two Matts open a therapy program right up Matt David's alley, finally fix the gain level of Matt Donald's new microphone, recognize our main contribution to writer's podcast is dumb jokes about farts and stuff, and talk about world-building via chance in the first of our set about various world-building means. What can writers do with dice, coins, and generators to help create worlds? How much should they plan beforehand? How much should writers use these methods versus their own creations? Why does Matt Donald sound like he has minimal enthusiasm for most of this episode? We discuss it all, stopping every five seconds to throw dice (it made it a pain to edit) and talk about Dungeons and Dragons, Animorphs, the Choose-Your-Own-Adventure books, and geometry for some reason.
