Episode 3 - Time Travel

This time, we mix it up a bit and take a journey in our "way back" machine. ALL the way back to 1899, then to 1960, to 2002, and finally to 2001, to pick up a slice with some friends before we return to the present. During our trip, we'll offer our thoughts on storytelling issues such as narrative vs. plot, isolation, family, suspension of disbelief, and social commentary. We also wonder how special some effects really are, and ask the question, "What IS a story?"

Episode 3 Coming Soon!

It's taking some time, but we think it's worth it. We wouldn't mind having a machine that could send us back a few days to finish this quicker for you. But in the meantime, we hope you enjoyed this great Thursday night by watching Cole Hamels' shutout and/or Part 1 of LOST's season finale. If you like blogs, here are two that are worth looking at:


The Transmission

We'll see you soon. Or later?

Episode 2 - The Apocalypse

You know it. It's the end of the world. You've seen a lot of apocalyptic visions out there. We've found four of them to share with you. This episode, we wonder what it must be like to have our lives get flip turned upside-down by some crazy catastrophe. We'll also find out who's making trouble in someone's Kansas neighborhood, and where the last man on Earth has been spending most of his days. So just take a minute (or 50) and sit right there, and we'll tell you how it all comes around.

Also, a reminder that we will be talking about the end of all these stories, so if you don't want to be spoiled, skip to the next story, or check them out before you listen.

Thanks to everyone who listened to, downloaded, and commented on Episode 1 - we've been surprised by and impressed with the response!
