We braved the theater to see Christopher Nolan’s latest spectacle. Was it worth it?

We’re all over the place on this episode. It’s just like old times. It’s like a time loop! You could say we wander to and far, but only if you’re a person who uses strange, nonstandard phrases instead of standard ones.
I was way on in my reckoning of episodes. I really thought we were in the mid-40s, but no. We’re just barely over the hill as a podcast. Still, episode 50 is in sight and that’s loaded with significance thanks to our base 10 numbering system and nothing else.
On this episode of the Workshop Podcast, Eric and I discuss things we are currently enjoying. And by “currently” we mean about a month ago. There’s sometimes quite a bit of delay between when we record and when we release episodes and that makes it a bit strange especially if we want to talk current events or something.
So listen and find out things were were enjoying about 5 or 6 weeks ago. Hopefully it’s a refreshingly positive episode. But don’t worry. It still gets wacky.
Yes, Eric really did receive a call from his wife during the recording. And yes, he did order Taco Bell. That wasn’t staged.
I both botched and misattributed a semi-well known quote about writing during the episode. The actual quotation is “Books aren’t written – they’re rewritten.” That’s from author Michael Crichton who most famously wrote Jurassic Park.
Now you know. And knowing is half the battle. Until next time, kids!
EDITOR’S NOTE: Instead of writing proper show notes this time, I’ve decided to mostly communicate by dumb image memes. It was inevitable. Sorry.
FINALLY! The TRUTH is REVEALED! This podcast was never supposed to be good in the first place. So it looks like all our hater are actually giving us compliments.
Take that, haters.
We’ve made it 10 episodes into this strange endeavor! Truly we are *so* committed.
Join us (by listening – you can’t participate because it’s pre-recorded, obviously) as we discuss:
I’m going to tell you right here, right now in these liner notes that no one reads that this is a terrible episode. It kind of fizzles out at the end and you should probably stop listening after the younger self discussion if you even start at all.
