FYMP Podcast #1 – The Story Begins

In this, the inaugural FYMP’cast, we discuss our reasons for creating it, introduce ourselves and our approach to the world of stories & fiction. We attempt to lay the groundwork for what will be an outlet and delivery system for our massive accumulation of trivia on all things fictitious, as well as our philosophy on the importance of storytelling.

This pilot podcast (with pilot quality audio) has more focus on us than on the fiction we’ll later explore.
