Dirt Cheap: Serious Goofballs (ft. Amanda Meadows and Geoffrey Golden)
3 Clips Podcast by Castos
It’s almost a meme at this point. A group of friends sitting around riffing say “this should be a podcast!.” Often those podcasts don’t work because they lack structure and a clear direction. Dirt Cheap is NOT one of those podcasts. It’s funny, edgy and off the cuff but still manages to keep a basic structure that makes for an easy, entertaining listen. Husband and wife duo, Amanda Meadows and Geoffrey Golden teamed up with production studio Neon Hum to bring us this unique podcast. The premise is actually pretty simple. Geoffrey reads from a dime store novel called “Murder in the Glass Room” a baffling noir novel from the 1940’s, while Amanda reacts in real time (with plenty of commentary and bantering between the two hosts.) The result is a 22 episode story arc that will leave you laughing. The pair chat with Evo about the importance of structure within a show, how they take they goofiness seriously, and in general, their creative process for making Dirt Cheap.

An Inside Look at Game Writing and Narrative Design with Geoffrey Golden
A Gamer’s Story
A good storyline is not mandatory to enjoy playing video games but when there is a well-written plot behind the main character's adventures, the enjoyment of playing the game goes to a different level. That is the work of people like Geoffrey Golden; they ensure that we not only play the game but most importantly, we become a part of and lost in the characters and plot. Geoffrey Golden is a narrative designer and writer. He has worked on a number of games including Murder in the Alps, an award-winning mystery game on mobile platforms. Geoffrey has written for Capcom, Ubisoft, Square Enix, and indie studios around the world. Geoffrey was always passionate about writing, storytelling, and video games, although he never thought he would combine his two passions into his career. He enjoys building interactive stories for different platforms like mobile, console titles, tabletop RPGs, chatbot experiences, robot toys, and even email newsletters. In this episode, we talked about the differences between a game writer and a narrative designer, Geoffrey's beginnings as a writer, and his experiences during the internet’s prehistoric beginning.
