Futurama’s “Radiorama” a Return to Content, but Not Quality

I love Futurama. Growing up, Futurama was my go-to show, and I've seen every episode at least four times with commentary--watching them regularly, I have no idea how many times. I've always been a fan of how the writing balanced jokes, social commentary, and character growth. I love the absurd amount of detail that goes into even … Continue reading Futurama’s “Radiorama” a Return to Content, but Not Quality

Top 5 Podcasts to Prep Writers for NaNoWriMo

I have a theory. I believe that nobody who has written a "top podcasts for writers" list listens to the podcasts they put on the list, that they are not writers, or both. I've always been astounded by how all of these list only include writing podcasts--things like Grammar Girl, I Should Be Writing, The Allusionist, etc. Don't … Continue reading Top 5 Podcasts to Prep Writers for NaNoWriMo
