Worst case scenarios? Logistics: i.e. How are you paying for this? Strike/Documentation

  9. 9. Storyworld Building: Welcome to Nightvale “Because it’s an on-demand thing, you can do stuff that requires people to listen to everything you’ve done up to this point,” explains Fink. “You can do a lot of stuff that demands more of an audience, in terms of making references without having to explain them — if they want to go back and figure it out, that’s on them. You can also do structural stuff — we had one story that was told from two perspectives, which you can do when you can release episodes at the same time.”
