403: Showrunner! The Home Game

Cut and Print: In yet another testament to the very strange way in which your host’s brain works, enjoy this introduction to Showrunner!: The Home Game – also known as outlining a nonexistent season of TV without actually writing out the episodes, or window shopping at the idea store.

Not mentioned in this podcast because they happened after the recording date: Peter Capaldi leaving Doctor Who, the Star Trek: Axanar lawsuit settlement and the death of John Hurt. I simply ran out of time to record an add-on for the news section, so we’ll discuss these at a later date.
