StoryWonk Sunday 52: Without A Safety Net 

This week: no planning, no script, no safety net! Lani begins the podcast before Alastair knows what is happening, and then we talk for an hour about getting into Buffy, diversity and tokenism in fiction, and lots more besides! Thanks to Joe, Jeff and Ben!

StoryWonk Sunday 51: The Machiavellian Goatee

We’re back! This week, we talk a little about Lani’s new reality-TV crush, answer a bushel of listener questions, and get into the thorny question of which characters we are — and are not — allowed to write. Thanks to Ben, Jason, Matthew and Katie, and congratulations to Dr. Kelly!

StoryWonk Sunday 50: The Last Scream Of The Dragon

This week, we talk about the WGA’s list of the best-written TV shows ever, discuss the entrenched sexism in speculative fiction, talk about writing Rashomon-style, and a handful of other things besides. And it’s our fiftieth show, although we didn’t remember that until we finished recording! Yay!

Thanks to Antonia!

StoryWonk Sunday 49: Lost

It’s a special show this week, as we make good on a old promise and finally talk about ABC’s seminal TV series, Lost. It’s an in-depth discussion of the characters, themes, techniques and tricks that made the show so memorable — and, of course, the points at which the storytelling broke down. It’s our longest show ever, so settle down, pour a glass of that Dharma-branded merlot, and join us!

A probably unnecessary warning: this episode contains all the spoilers for the entire series. If you haven’t seen Lost, then save this episode until you have.

We’ll be back with a regular show next week!

StoryWonk Sunday 48: Someone Is Wrong On The Internet

A day later and a half-hour longer than promised, we’re back! This week, we talk about writing in pen on the internet, long-running stories we dropped out of — or didn’t — and then discuss our Book Club book, The Undomestic Goddess. It’s a packed show, and it’s all for you!
