Episode 74 - Goal: Make Better Goals

Remember back in January when you made that resolution? Yeah, that one. How's that going for you?

If you're like most people, you've either given up on it or decided not to make one at all. Still, most of us would like to make goals that we follow through on, so Tim and Nick talk with Zach Hayden, our local productivity guru, on ways to help us follow through on the changes we want to make.

Afterward we indulge in a long overdo Bit of Story, some Project Update, and perhaps another short yet ridiculous segment.

So, put us on your To Do list and resolve to improve your day with another episode of your premiere podcast on storytelling, Derailed Trains of Thought!

Episode 73 - Not Another Political Post!

You may have noticed that political discussions are a thing on the Internet. This is not one of those.

However, politics show up in stories as well. Why? Do we really want to spend an hour watching people debate each other? Is this another tale of trade route taxation and blockades? Does walking through hallways while talking policy make everything more exciting? Tim and Nick look at what politics can add to a story that another round of fisticuffs can't.

Then in "What If?" we throw various fictional races into the same world and see how they manage to navigate their differences. So, whether you want to join the Wookie-Fraggle-Noldor Alliance or prefer the rule of the Nazi-Hutts, I'm sure you'll want to get off social media and enjoy the wit and wisdom that is Episode 73 of your premier podcast on storytelling, Derailed Trains of Thought.

Side Track 8 - Star Wars and Other Stories

Sneaking in at the end of 2016, here's a two-part Side Track. The first half consists of a discussion on some of our favorite stories of the year, cut from Episode 72, after we discussed "Five Strangers in Search of an Exit" with the Children of the Wells crew.

The second half includes Tim and Nick's thoughts on Rogue One--because we like to talk Star Wars from time to time.

Enjoy and Happy New Year!
