    The Toilet Bowl Taketh

    If you think a twelve hour plane ride is long, this episode will make your skin crawl. This world is has barbarism, cannibalism, and an extremely well-to-do pilot. It's the perfect storm for some 'turbulent' worldbuilding.

    Twisted Trials of the Fallen

    Twisted Trials of the Fallen

    There's so many ways worldbuilding could go, but this one gets devilish. Worry not, mom and dad, we don't worship any underground deities... yet. Dante's Inferno and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn come together in a beautiful union to make this week's world!

My first podcast

The improv format that sparks your childhood creativity! The real conversation makes you feel like you want to be in the room with the hosts. As the idea phase transitions into building blocks of a world, I find I have experienced the highs and lows of the creative process as I follow in real time. A good time was had and now I’m hungry for more! If I had 3 words for this podcast, they would be: Funny, Relaxed, and Spatula… make of that what you will ;)
