    Episode 55: Monster Makeover- Werewolves

    Episode 55: Monster Makeover- Werewolves

    Come howl at the moon and wake up naked covered in blood as we introduce our new Monster Makeover series with werewolves! In this series we take a well known monster, break it down to its most basic parts and then we put a unique spin on them. While other "more respected" and "smarter" podcasts might start with more popular monsters, we decided to go with one of our favorites, the werewolf. We discuss werewolves that devour faith, werewolves that are born through internet cancel culture, and more! Do you have a worldbuilding prompt you want to send to us?Email us your suggestions at: WorldbuildWithUs@gmail.com or follow us on Twitter @LetsWorldBuild Intro theme: "Half Mystery"Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com)Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0

The Best Way to Improve Your Worldbuilding Chops

This is one of the best, if not the best, worldbuilding podcasts I've found out there. Not only are these guys intertaning, but they take you through their process of worldbuilding over and over again as they rapidly build worlds, races, cultures, factions, and more. Getting to see, or rather hear, them go through the steps has helped me come up with my own ideas and improve my worldbuilding over all.
