Caleb opens up the episode by telling us how he almost accidentally killed himself in the gym. Then we get into the heart of the matter with a great conversation about fantasy stories.

We discuss why we don’t read a lot of fantasy, what would make us read more fantasy, and what elements we want or don’t want in our fantasy stories. We also talk a bit about fantasy movies, tabletop games such as Dungeons and Dragons, RPG video games, and Magic the Gathering.

#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. Check out our work at Follow us on Twitter @drunkpenwriting On Instagram @drunkenpenwriting And like us on Facebook at
