11/12/2018
More

10/8/2018
More
We kick off by analyzing one of our favorite Audio Drama podcasts, Bubble. The PlotCast is back with a completely revamped Season 2! More stories, more arguments and more cursing than ever before. AK is a cliche millennial; special season-long guest, Ori, is just as bad at explaining things as AK; Gus fangirls over his favorite show. Listen to Bubble (after you listen to us): www.maximumfun.org/shows/Bubble P.S. This story doesn't suck.

Episode 15: The Tragic True Story of Michael Larson

9/10/2018
More
In 1984, Michael Larson won over $100,000 on a CBS gameshow called Press Your Luck, becoming one of the largest scandals to ever hit the network. So much so that his episodes were hidden from the world for 19 years. And the mystery goes even deeper: Shortly after winning, Larson become a fugitive from the FBI, lost all his money, and was found dead in Florida. On this special Season 1 Finale episode of the PlotCast, AK and Gus dive into one of their favorite true-life stories, analyze the...

Episode 14 - Plot Twists?!

9/4/2018
More
Bruce Willis was dead the whole time; Norton is Durden; the "dead guy" on the floor was Jigsaw the whole time. Welcome to the Plot Twist episode of the PlotCast. I mean, it's got part of our name in it already, so it must be good. Let's jump in to the best and worst plot twists we've ever seen, plus: How to do them right, and now FUCK UP THE ENTIRE MOVIE. (Ahem; excuse me.) This episode contains spoilers for Saw, The Mist, Unbreakable, and a bunch of older movies. I don't think we spoil...

Episode 13: My Hero Academia (AK's favorite show)

8/27/2018
More
While AK fan boys over his favorite show, Gus and special guest, Orious, actually have a discussion about the highs and lows of My Hero Academia. AK loves everything about it, while Gus has some harsh criticisms of the popular anime. And, just like Deku, AK cried multiple times during the recording of this episode (and not just from Gus' offensive anime-illiteracy). It's been a long time coming, but to quote Allmight: "This episode is HERE." (Or something like that.) This episode will...

Episode 12 - Film adaptations and fan expectations

8/20/2018
More
Film adaptations are a touchy subject (as you'll hear from AK's reactions). And books turned in to movies are either hit or miss. You've got examples like Harry Potter and Game of Thrones, both of which have been recreated to critical acclaim. But still, fans can be upset when details are left out or changed to fit the new format. Is it worth staying 100% true to the original, even if it creates a bad viewing experience on the big screen? Would film adaptations benefit from more...

Episode 11: Horror - Gus loves it; AK hates it. AK is wrong.

8/13/2018
More
AK tries to spread his lies about horror movies, while Gus defends and explains the history of the best genre ever created. Gus also writes these descriptions, if you couldn't tell. This episode of the PlotCast was supposed to be on a different topic, but was was derailed by an impromptu argument. Will AK come over to the dark side, or will Gus be forced to kill AK at the end of it? Find out. This episode contains spoilers for: Dream House, Devil, the Visit, and some other horror movies...

Episode 10: Power Creep & Plot Armor in storytelling

8/6/2018
More
This week on the PlotCast, we dive into another genre topic: Power Creep and Plot Armor when it comes to advancing a story. Power Creep, as (poorly) defined by AK, is when characters in stories keep getting stronger or smarter, just to continue the story. Think Dragon Ball Z or Sherlock. Plot Armor is when a character survives something they shouldn't, just because they're the main character, like Indiana Jones. Are these two techniques good, bad, or just plain amateur when it comes to...

7/23/2018
More
It's the showdown episode of the PlotCast, with Grumpy Gus versus AK (and special guest, our buddy Ruba) in an ongoing debate that could end a friendship: Is The Office a story-based show? Can sitcoms even be considered story-based? Sadly, those and more questions are left (mostly) unanswered, because we just argue back and forth for 50-minutes. May contain spoilers for: The Office (duh) and Friends. Maybe Lost, too. We can't remember. Follow us on Twitter for daily updates: ...

What's better than some hilariously bad improv with friends? How about getting them drunk first. In this special episode of the PlotCast, Ak and two of his friends, Rayford and Ori, have a unique challenge: Buy a beer with an interesting label and then tell a story about it. Best story wins the fame and glory. (And maybe a free beer.) Who wins? Was the beer good? Find out.

Everyone hates when their favorite series ends, but some stories just go on for too long. AK and Gus are back for another episode of the PlotCast podcast, this time discussing series that just won't stop, including some greats like Saw, Harry Potter, and Fast & Furious. Should franchises continue to make these series, long after they were supposed to end? Find out in episode 5 of the PlotCast. May contain spoilers for: The Office, Saw series, My Hero Academia.
