    Hey NB! I just started listening to you guys the other day. Your Foils episode inspired me to nail down how my characters bounce off one another in just a few words. I made this nifty little csi style network diagram and it came out looking like a piece of art in and of itself. I’m not sure where it will end up but I put the link link to the image where it says to put your website.

    PS: Sorry about the CIA highlighter

    PPS: You guys are awesome
