Showrunners 00: Introduction to the Podcast

Our podcast has begun!!!!

Does the Story Work?

That’s the question isn’t it?

Welcome to the Story Grid Showrunners Podcast, dedicated to answering this question by using the story grid method developed by Shawn Coyne.

Every season – Melanie, Parul and I will analyze a hit TV series to figure out what works or doesn’t work, and why.

So if you’re a writer or an editor, and you can carve 10-15 minutes out of your busy schedule, push your computer back, pop on the kettle on, as Parul would say, and join us as we learn how to make a better story.
