13 - Tone Talk

In an effort to change things up, Bryan has decided to start allowing other people to have some say in the topics of choice. Stephen is first up this week, and has been inspired by the Batman vSuperman trailerto discuss the concept of tone in storytelling. Why the recent appetite for the tonally dark and grim? How can tone subvert expectations? Has Abigail actually been reading anything this week? These questions and more will be answered before your very ears! Also, Stephen does a killer George Lucas impression.If you want to get in touch with us, check us out onTwitter, or send us an e-mail at ThirdPersonShow@gmail.com.

So bad news. Stephen's dead. The good news is we managed to build a replacement! Parker Crow (aka, Stephen 2.0) joins Abigail and Bryan in their discussion/incoherent chattering about some of their weirdest and least popular opinions onstorytelling. Bryan spends most of his time defending the arguably indefensible (ex. Revenge of the Sith and Frozen) while Abigail spends most of *her* time laughing at nothing in particular. Parker takes it all in with his trademark cool, though this may justbe him wondering why he ever agreed to come on in the first place.If you want to get in touch with us, check us out onTwitter, or send us an e-mail at ThirdPersonShow@gmail.com.

11 - High Fantasy

Whoa! Stephen's back! It turns out he didn't abandon us to a fate of misery and sorrow after all! To celebrate, we discuss a genrenear and dear to our formerly absent friend's heart: high fantasy. The origins, virtues, and pitfalls of the sub-genre are all discussed, as is Bryan's firm but baseless claim that Star Trek is categorically stupid. (He's actually right.)If you want to get in touch with us, check us out onTwitter, or send us an e-mail at ThirdPersonShow@gmail.com.

10 - Nonfiction and Storytelling

Stephen is mysteriously absent this week, so Bryan and Abigail take this advantage to have a surprisingly coherent discussion! The topic is twofold: the use of nonfiction to enrich storytelling and the use of storytelling to enrich nonfiction. The first step is to define just what exactly these two concepts mean, which leads to a comparative study of the works of Tolkien and C.S. Lewis. Also discussed:how Resident Evil teaches us about powerlessness as a technique in horror and why Friends isn't a complete waste of time!If you want to get in touch with us, check us out onTwitter, or send us an e-mail at ThirdPersonShow@gmail.com.

9 - The Puppet Problem

There are times in storieswhere the protagonists seem a slave to the narrative's whims, losing their sense of individuality and personality in an effort to keep the plot moving. This is The Puppet Problem. We discuss this, as well as the larger issue of character agency in general, doing our best to sound well-informed, educated, and totally aware of what the heck "character agency" even means. I think we do a pretty darn good job of it.If you want to get in touch with us, check us out on Twitter, or send us an e-mail at ThirdPersonShow@gmail.com.

So! Turns out not talking about books was really fun. Stephen, Bryan and Abigail have decided it's time to expand their horizons and take the show in a new, broader direction. Kicking this movement off, they introduce the hot new segment "What Have You Been Narratively Involved With?" and go on to discuss different storytelling mediums and their preferences. Books, movies, TV shows, puppet shows... it's all fair game now in the Third Person world, and we couldn't be more excited. (FINE.
