Yes, it’s a great name for a band but it’s also the title of this episode! Bill is in L.A. and chats with superstar YouTube essayist Lindsay Ellis and Funhouse regular Joseph Scrimshaw. They discuss the “Death of the Author” theory that’s the subject of Lindsay’s recent video series. Some of the authors metaphorically made dead include J.K. Rowling, John Green, Orson Scott Card, Anne Rice, John Scalzi, Neil Gaiman, plus that incorrigible duo William Shakespeare & the guy who wrote Ready Player One. Also, inevitably: Star Wars. Finally, Lindsay, Joseph and Bill give listener advice to a couple annoying each other!
