We open up the episode with a quick conversation about what novels we’re going to read now that we’re done with Dracula. Then we get into a much longer discussion about our future writing projects and the idea of tackling a full-length novel. 

And to finish things off, we talk a bit about our personal writing styles and what types of novels we would be best suited to write.

IRC #12: Oblivion Part Three Drunken Pen Writing Podcast

Today's episode discusses two more stories in Oblivion: Stories by David Foster Wallace. First, we read and discuss his deeply disturbing flash fiction story, Incarnation of Burned Children. This one comes with a trigger warning as the imagery and subject matter are incredibly traumatic.  The second story, Another Pioneer, offers a meditation on storytelling, knowledge, self-consciousness, societal evolution, and societal destruction. We cover this complex story and touch upon post-modernism, AI, the burden of knowledge, the breakdown of society, and many, many other things.  This might just be our favorite episode of this series!
