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.

DBS #43: Books, Writing, And Japanese Fiction Drunken Pen Writing Podcast

During the cold open, Spencer gives us his mini-review of Stephen and Owen King's co-written novel, Sleeping Beauties. After that, we get into a mix of reading and writing talk.  We discuss some words we avoid using in our writing, and then the conversation morphs into narration styles and storytelling techniques that bug us. We end things by talking about what we want to read next for the podcast and get into a conversation about Japanese authors.
