Bad Storytellers

  1. Bad Storytellers :: Episode 24 :: The Season-Ender

    bad storytellersBad Storytellers is a podcast about writing and things that are written. Join four friends on the road to becoming professional writers as they unleash new stories on-air, criticize each others’ work, discuss pop culture influences, and conceive on-the-spot trailers for imaginary films.

    In this episode, we discuss the new Ghostbusters film and have a spoiler-free discussion about Stranger Things (with a spoiler-laden discussion tucked safely away at the very end). Liam brings in his revised and much improved first chapter of his story, and Josh turns in his most difficult chapter yet! But that’s not all – we’ve been gifted with two fan submissions for critique!

    Join us as the gang says farewell until next season. We hope to see you all again soon.

Afterwards, we discuss diction and clarity, and our trailer ends up being a movie that will never be made, but that everyone secretly wants.

Additionally, Liam and Maxx have very unique writing submissions, and we give a shout out to another friend who is in Hollywood films. Also, we discuss the merits of Coke vs Pepsi, and whether or not we should have a moratorium on discussing Deep Space Nine and Jurassic World. Enjoy!

    In this episode, the gang is minus one as Doug has to sit out, but we still cover a large range of topics including the Rogue One trailer, Mary Sues, and how many times is too many to say a character’s name. Max brought in a character study, Liam expanded on his “Fox and Ox” tale, and Josh brought in the fourth chapter of his first draft. As always, we end up spending more time arguing about the name of our movie than the plot. Enjoy. We sure did.
