3/28/2020

Ditch Diggers #92: So you’re working from home now…

NOTE- Recorded last week (the 12th I think?) and the news has moved fast since. Matt and Mur come to you live from their shiny new quarantine room within the new Ditch Diggers mansion.

Ditch Diggers #90: Kameron Hurley and Writing THAT Story

2/14/2020
Matt and Mur come to you live from the jigsaw where they are cutting the joists for the brand new Ditch Diggers HQ! Brief discourse on Timothy Olyphant, aka Olyphantastic.

ISBW #480: Appropriation

2/6/2020
I talk about why it’s not the best thing to tell stories that are not your own, and why the overall problem is not something writers themselves can fix.

ISBW #479: Pen and paper

2/4/2020
