Smart Podcasts About The Stories You Love
12 août 2012 - 00:00:00
This week, we talk about the rewards of being grammatically incorrect, the proper number of exclamation points, the pleasures of the long form, and we have voicemails! Plural! Exclamations!
26 août 2012 - 00:00:00
This week, we own up to a podcast-related mistake, talk about reviews and the Emily Giffen controversy, inaugurate our new book club by discussing EM Forster’s A Room With A View, and share some things that are making us happy. StoryWonk’s NaNoWriMo Pre-Game Class Lani’s recommendation: Baby Got Back Supercut (plus the original version and […]

This week, we have the bubons. Luckily, we’ve interviewed some incredibly smart people over the last two years, and this is a perfect opportunity to share some of their genius. Jane Espenson Ron Hogan Barbara Samuel StoryWonk’s NaNoWriMo Pre-Game Class Book of the Month: A Wizard Of Earthsea by Ursula K Le Guin Want to […]
9 septembre 2012 - 00:00:00
This week, we spend half an hour talking about television shows, discuss a new metaphor for powerful storytelling, and improvise an entire story in fifteen minutes. We're back from the bubons, baby!
16 septembre 2012 - 00:00:00
This week, we talk about ourselves for a little while, explain why Go On is the best new series of the season, discuss breaking characters, and wonder aloud whether or not this is a Golden Age Of Storytelling. All that, the usual silliness, and the return of the WordWonk too!
23 septembre 2012 - 00:00:00
This week, we talk about the best -- and worst -- character writing on television, on bad, bad things done right, the process of revision, and why Lani is wearing the cranky pants.
30 septembre 2012 - 00:00:00
This week, we talk about some more new TV, about allowing your characters to fail, and discuss A Wizard Of Earthsea in the Book Club. It's our longest show ever!
14 octobre 2012 - 00:00:00
This week, we battle Alastair's bubon-infested throat to deconstruct genre and argue for a new taxonomy of fiction.
7 octobre 2012 - 00:00:00
This week, we talk about Alastair's Avengers curse, the (squandered) potential of Glee, what beginnings are for and how to write them, and what we've learned in the last six months of StoryWonk Sunday.
21 octobre 2012 - 00:00:00
This week, we talk about what character arcs are and how to write them, what we thought of Amy and Rory in Doctor Who, and Alastair resists the urge to talk at length about Quantum Leap.
28 octobre 2012 - 00:00:00
This week, we talk about Glinda the Good Witch, are almost derailed by Donna Noble, then discuss writing synopses and Sherlock Holmes. It's a packed show!
4 novembre 2012 - 00:00:00
We recorded this episode early because Lani was supposed to be out of town this week. The hurricane changed everything, but it turned out to be a fun show anyway, so here are our unscripted thoughts on the Random House/Penguin merger, the business of writing, our secret origins, roleplaying games, the lure of the grimdark-- and, for the first time in forever, we talk about Buffy! What a show!
11 novembre 2012 - 00:00:00
This week, Lani is still trapped in New Jersey, so Alastair dips back into the archive to find our favorite writer improvs. Three stories, from scratch, in a little over an hour: what a deal!
19 novembre 2012 - 00:00:00
This week, we discuss the strengths and weaknesses of Pixar's Brave, and the importance of a strong, present antagonist.
25 novembre 2012 - 00:00:00
This week, we discuss showing and telling, and Alastair waxes rhapsodical about The Hobbit.
2 décembre 2012 - 00:00:00
This week, Lani and Alastair are consumed by the post-NaNo crash (and some technical difficulties which were absolutely not Alastair's fauly, let's be clear about that). By way of compensation, here's the series they recorded in January 2012, looking at the Five-Man Band.
16 décembre 2012 - 00:00:00
This week on the show, Lani and Alastair talk antagonism, look back at how the publishing landscape changed in 2012, and wrap it all up with a high-stakes writer improv! Don't miss it!
9 décembre 2012 - 00:00:00
This week, we answer listener questions on the Stand Up And Cheer moment and research, and then discuss antagonism in romance.
23 décembre 2012 - 00:00:00
For the first time in StoryWonk history -- more or less -- we ran afoul of technical problems that made this week's show unusable. Blame our new microphones, GarageBand, or the Mayans. Probably the Mayans. In place of our regular episode, therefore, enjoy this seasonal greeting, and the most awesome voicemail we received in 2012. Huge thanks to Wendy, and best wishes to all! We'll be back next week!
31 décembre 2012 - 00:00:00
In our last show of 2012, we bounce back from technical disaster to answer a flurry of listener questions, give advice on building your digital presence and online persona, and ramble a little before coming to an abrupt halt. It's been a strange week, folks!
