#9. Hard Times (S1,E3)

You cannot be suggesting what we infer you’re implying!
We follow Crowley and Aziraphale through six thousand years of misadventure, snark, and love as the doomsday clock counts down the end of the world in “Hard Times” (Good Omens, S1, E3).

#80. Doppelgangland (S3.16)

Say, you all didn’t happen to do a bunch of drugs, did ya?

We’re seeing double as Willow faces down her dark side in one of the best episodes of Buffy ever to grace the small screen, Doppelgangland! (S3.16)

#8: The Book

We can’t have a war without War!

In the second episode of Good Omens, we meet Anathema, Newt, Shadwell, Madame Tracy, and Agnes Nutter… the end of the world is nigh. But all that matters is the love story between an angel and his demon.

#79. Consequences (S3.15)

We’re not looking to hug and cry and learn and grow.

It’s time for Consequences (S3.15) as Lani and Noelle process Faith’s trauma, get feels for therapy-Angel, and say a sad goodbye to Mr. Trick.

#37. Jessica Jones (S1.03-4)

We don’t waste time circle jerking with a bunch of whiners.

For the next set of Jessica Jones episodes, Joshua writes a love letter to his favorite superhero of all time and maybe even convinces Lani to read some comics. They go on to discuss the highs and lows of Luke and Jessica together, the mixed bag of these two episodes, and finally come face-to-face with Kilgrave.

#7. In the Beginning

Heaven couldn’t object if we were actually thwarting you.

It’s the end of the world but we couldn’t be happier as we dive into the wild and wonderful first episode of Good Omens.

#78. Bad Girls (S3.14)

Hey, slaying’s what we were built for. If you’re not enjoying it, you’re doing something wrong.

We’re aiming to misbehave as Faith and Buffy subvert both textual and subtextual norms in Bad Girls (S3.14).


If we sit down and think about it sensibly, we come up with some very funny ideas.

It’s the first day of the rest of the world as we wrap up the Sunday chapter of Good Omens, reflect on the book, and look forward to the upcoming show.

Love what you love

“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.
