Episode 16 - Come, Let's Play a Story Together!

Admit it. Sometimes when you're reading a book, you wish you could jump in and spend some time in that world. This episode, Tim and Nick discuss formats in which you ARE the main character of a story—Choose Your Own Adventures, video games, and other forms of interactive fiction!

Also this episode, a very special Cinema Selections. Let's just say this: '80s fantasy meets German expressionism in a film Tim has been long overdue in experiencing. Was it worth the wait?

Find out in this extra-long, wide-ranging episode of Derailed Trains of Thought!

Episode 15 - Nothing New Beneath the Sun

Have we got an original for you! What do you get when you mix 20+ minutes of philosophical merry-go-round on the need for creativity; some regular dashes of Star Wars and Jim Henson; a healthy dose of dead French author, serial killer-obsessed writer, and caped crusader; a teaspoon of environmentally conscious alien; a drop of Heineken for flavor; and some guy named GorĊ? The perfect cure to your sterotypical, connect-the-dots podcast!

Or, at least, the 15th episode of Derailed Trains of Thought, your favorite podcast about storytelling. Have a listen!
