Mur and Matt come to you live after abandoning Morgan Freeman's elaborate and fictitious estate (because, once again, the Ditch Diggers believe women) and tunneling from the interstate (for reasons Mur explains) to Jeff Goldblum's modest empire. Or possibly Jodie Foster's underground lair. It's all very complicated, but we're working on it.
Welcome to the first 20-Minute Ditch! On their inaugural truncated episode, Matt and Mur talk about deadline management do’s and don’t’s for freelance writers! Also, Matt has a metronome, Mur has a long riff on “Footprints,” and will be talking mainly to herself!
- Matt and Mur come to you live from the Alternate History Wing of Morgan Freeman's Private Art Museum with special guest co-host, DREAD NATION author Justina Ireland.

- The Ditch Diggers come to you live from Morgan Freeman's calendar room (featuring an inordinate amount of train calendars).
- Matt and Mur argue about the configuration of a train whose cars are the months of the year and whether or not "hobo" is a pejorative term (yes, this really happens).
- The topic of the episode finally emerges: Feast or famine as a freelance writer!
We talk the latest JKR news item - Dumbledore is gay, only he's not gay in the new movie. But why are people pissed about this?
JKR is too big to fail, but we talk about branding and what retconning your characters mean to your fans.
