18. Hammock Accident

Darren and Simon—eventually—discuss world building, that extension of setting that enables readers to feel like the story they’re reading takes place somewhere very real, talking about their favourite worlds from novels they’ve read alongside some of their own work. Also a quick update on Darren’s missed opportunity with monster trucks and Simon’s concussion.

Worth also noting, if you ask ask Darren for a tiny synopsis of a work in progress, you should know now what to expect. You’ve been warned.

16. Made from Coke Cans and Bud Light Bottles

A triumphant return to the Fireproof Garage as Darren and Simon discuss their recent hiatus and its associated pilgrimage to the podcast namesake in Livermore, California.  

Main topic of discussion in this episode, though, is the forthcoming actual text-based collaboration between Darren and Simon. Called “Infinite Blue”, this modern fabulist love triangle between boy, girl, and the water will be released all over North America in September 2018.

There will be plenty more to talk about closer to release, but for now, Darren and Simon respond to the three questions they know they will be asked on the book’s release.
