We start the episode by talking about our awful writing output and cool narrative structures. Then we get into an open discussion on why we think people are so drawn to heroes and stories about overcoming obstacles. 

We also discuss the adventure story and why we think people like reading about epic adventures that could never really happen but wish would. 

#74: To BS Or Not To BS? Drunken Pen Writing Podcast

We talk about boobs in the cold open. Not sure why or how we got on the subject, but sometimes these things can't be helped. Once we get into the episode, though, we begin a long discussion on how to bullshit your way through a story. More specifically, how to handle science (and magical) elements in your story. Do you play it safe and give sparse details on, say, space travel? Or do you go into great detail and describe how the ship is able to reach warp speed? Caleb ends the episode by revealing his clone on air. Fun is had by all.
