#77. The Zeppo (S3.13)

We like the quiet.

Lani and Noelle celebrate the transition from (mostly) Shadow Xander to (mostly) Light Xander as we get a coming of age story in The Zeppo (S3.13).

#36. Jessica Jones (S1.01-2)

Our greatest weakness? Occasionally we give a damn.

For their first foray into Jessica Jones, Joshua and Lani discuss hardboiled detectives, the burden of being special, and begin to dig into fiction’s place in helping us confront trauma in ourselves and others.

#5. Heathen Passion and Occult Wiles

Don’t be stupid. Do we look like we run a bookshop?…It’s the 11 endings of the Apocalypse as we follow Aziraphale, Crowley and the rest of the clown car of characters to the final battle at the Lower Tadfield Air Base with our reading of Saturday, Part II.

#4. Metatron and Mad Prophetesses

You’d better read this. It’ll save a lot of time.

Hang on to your holy water… it’s time for phenomena and apocalyptic pandemonium as Lani and Kelly dive into the first half of the “Saturday” chapter of Good Omens. 

#76. Helpless (S3.12)

If we were at full Slayer power, we’d be punning right now.

Lani and Noelle talk about patriarchy busting with Little Red Riding Hood and patriarchy supporting with the One True Love myth as they get all “Helpless” (S3.12) with Buffy.

#35. Avengers: Endgame Hot Take with Rob Heiret

Until this exact moment, we thought you were Build-A-Bear.For Avengers: Endgame, Joshua and Lani welcome Metaphors Be With You’s Rob Heiret to talk about meaningful deaths and time travel shenanigans in the most anticipated LUA hot take ever!

#3. Witches Just Wanna Have Fun

We have a way of slouching that offends all right thinking people…

This episode of WTTET is all about witches, witch hunters, and cocoa science experiments as we discuss the Thursday and Friday chapters of Good Omens.

#16. Indiana Jones and the Updated Trilogy

A non-Star Wars episode about Rob’s longstanding theory concerning the nature and purpose of Indiana Jones and Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

Love what you love

At Chipperish Media, story expert and New York Times bestselling novelist Lani Diane Rich podcasts about stories and storytelling, loving up on and learning from the best stories out there, including Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Angel, The West WingOutlander and Star Wars!

And for the serious narrative nerds out there, Lani’s groundbreaking How Story Works podcast goes deep into narrative theory which applies to all stories, independent of form. So whether you’re wondering why that commercial made you cry, or trying to figure out how to structure a sprawling epic novel, this is the only how-to storytelling podcast you need.

“Thank you so much!”

I discovered your podcast when you guest hosted on Buffering the Vampire Slayer, just a few weeks ago, and you have already changed my life with How Story Works!

All my life I’ve felt the need to write, but it wasn’t until recently that I sat down with an idea for a novel. In the past two years, I have started, and lost the way with two book ideas. I didn’t know what I was missing, how to bring my feelings and ideas together in a coherent way, until I discovered you and HSW.

I have only made it to Episode 12: Seven Anchor Scenes, but feel I FINALLY have the tools to build a map for my book!

I am so excited to dig deeper into HSW and in turn my book!

So, thank you. Discovering you is the turning point in my dream of writing a book.
