The PS4 game Bloodborne stopped by Josh's life to teach him several lessons about storytelling, so he decided to share them with you! He discusses the importance of interesting universes, not beating the audience over the head with exposition, and allowing people to miss some story points.

Additionally, this episode includes a note on the need for consistent writing time instead of random "binge-writing."

Kevin Larrabee stops by this week to discuss two topics that go so so well together: video games and fitness. We focus a great deal of attention on his article "Saying 'Goodbye' to Video Games," funny censor sounds (you'll hear what I chose about halfway through the episode), and self-improvement. I admit to swimming; Kevin admits to buying another WiiU, and we give the ole college try to convincing others to do something great in 2016.
