“There’s a lot of authors out there and if you pay them right you will get all of them.”
It’s the final episode of the first series of The Paperchain Podcast and we’ve got Escape Artist’s very own Alasdair Stuart on the show. He talks about his origins as a film critic in Yorkshire, through to running “the best kept secret in podcasting.” We talk about the process of reading through submissions, and how running a network of podcasts has changed the way he writes. Alasdair also talks about how he has come to learn about the construction of stories through writing Dr Who RPG sourcebooks, and we definitively declare the sixth Doctor story Timelash a hot mess. Finally, he reads a story based on last episode’s prompt, and turns out to be the only guest who actually enjoyed doing that bit.
