We've done brainstorming casts before. This time we've prepared something quite a bit different. It's different, in fact, because we prepared it -- in advance, even.
Producer Jordo provided your hosts Brandon, Dan, Mary, and Howard with four wacky news headlines. From these, we each hammered together rudimentary bits of story, and we did so independently. You get four different takes on this four-headline mashup.
The four headlines:
* Wary of Iguanas, Bored Germans Finally Venture Out
* Heroic Mailman Saves Three Lives While On the Job
* Dolphin Charged With Battery Against Girlfriend
* Austrian Power Company Tells Customer She is Dead
Mary goes first and sets the bar rather high with an entire story outline.
Brandon goes next, and gives us a magic system.
Then it's Howard's turn. What looks like story shrapnel turns out to be the prologue.
Finally, Dan gives us a nice, post-apocalyptic piece, or at least the robotic skeleton of one.
