You have to write an episode description for Booyah. You sit at your computer and type these words. You're nervous that some buttheads will someday read these words and roll their eyes because the second person present tense ain't cool. Years ago, you and Robert were drawn to writing in the second person present tense. Maybe a lot of young writers are drawn to that POV because it's a cheat code that magically makes the writing seem urgent. But is it really a cheat code? You have no clue. All you know for sure is that this Booyah episode you're supposed to be describing makes you want to write something that is distinctly yours and nobody else's. It also makes you laugh a lot.

Booyah is a Synopsish show. Here’s the thing I say about that: Hi, I’m Rob. With my friends and family, I celebrate pop culture, creativity, and possibility in podcasts and blog posts at synopsish.com. We have things about movies, sports, TV, trivia, music, and so on. Hope you’ll take a look. That’s also where you can contact us to suggest a show or tell a story about your life in the 90s.

Thanks for listening. Take care.
