Scientific Podcast Goes Boink, Episode 58: Lou Costello Will Break Your Arm

It's another episode where we talk about writing! Just like it says in the intro!

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.


Sometimes, Pete and Bill like to talk about writing. Sometimes Bill will run away and talk about it all by himself. This week, Abbott and Costello are discussed, which leads to a lengthy conversation about Lost in Translation, enhanced audio, shooting scripts, the importance of the writing when discussing the visual arts and how to feel like you're a better scriptwriter than you actually are (or maybe not!)

For your full enjoyment, links to things discussed on the podcast:

- The true identity of the Zodiac Killer
