(Greg’s is loose! He won’t shut up, send help!) We, ahem… Greg talks a lot about copyright, copyleft, the EU Copyright Directive, and more. Martyn, on the other hand, has been writing, and shares insights about his process.

Warner Bros' Harry Potter f*ckup: we can't even...
We can't even... 🤬 Greg read an article and snapped his chains… now he’s out in the yard and barking non-stop. Sorry. 😛 With good reason, though. We just can’t fathom the idiocy from corporations and the abuse of fandom. We just can’t.

Fan-fiction Greg’s still in the doghouse — barking a lot. 😛 We discuss fan fiction (turns out, Martyn’s a Trekkie! Who knew?) and the benefits (and dangers!) of putting work and passion into them. We also talk about why today’s the best time to be writing fan fiction, the death of originality, and a lot more. Send us your fanfic! We’d love to feature them on the show, and send new readers your way! Background music: Jazz Brunch by Kevin MacLeod; licensed under Creative Commons: By...
