S9E1 – “The Movie Was Better”

There are some crimes people can commit that aren’t punishable by law. This series is dedicated to those involved with writing, whether they be committed by the author or the readers. To be clear, this series isn’t designed to help writers better create crimes (murder, theft, etc.) within their novels. The kinds of crimes we’ll talk about range from boring the readers to abusing the control you have over the book and characters.

It’s a common phrase throughout modern culture: “The book/movie was better.” This is something everyone should stop saying, as both mediums have their use and purpose. Storytelling is meant to be enjoyed by everyone, and not everyone likes to read or stare at a screen for two hours. This episode talks about the benefits of each medium, especially books, and what those who consume stories should remember.

First aired April 2, 2020.
