70. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (S7.1-13)

We always bounce back.

For our final season of Agents of SHIELD, Joshua takes us on a spy-fi retrospective through the decades. Then he and Lani take a step back and just appreciate the magic that is Agents season 7.

132. All the Way (S6.06)

Did anyone come here to just make out?

Special guest host Dr. Kelly Jones sits down with Noelle to talk about the badassery that is Dawn in All The Way (S6.06).

131. Life Serial (S6.05)

This is gonna be great.

If loving Jonathan and Andrew is wrong, AND IT IS, then Noelle and Lani have some serious inner work to do as they talk about Life Serial (S6.05).

130. Flooded (S6.04)

No. More. Full. Copper. REPIPE!

Noelle and Lani try to figure out why they hate Flooded so much (S6.04).

69. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (S6.1-13)

We are a cautionary tale to steer children away from crime and excess.

For the sixth season of Agents of SHIELD, Joshua explains the 616 antecedent to the Chronicoms and then Lani enjoys Joshua’s less than enthusiastic reaction to the sixth season.

129. After Life (S6.3)

It’s hard to get a good night’s death around here.

Noelle and Lani discuss mirrors and the transformative power of pain as they dive into After Life (S6.03).

68. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (S5.11-22)

There’s nothing you can do to get us to join your Evil League of Evil.

It’s a rough ride as Lani and Joshua close out this season. But before they hit the trail of narrative chicanery, Joshua tells Lani all about superheroes and their annoying offspring from the future.

128. Bargaining, Parts 1 & 2 (S6.1-2)

Is this hell?

Lani and Noelle say hello to the darkness that is Season 6 as they discuss Bargaining Parts 1&2 (S6.1-2)

“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.
