good episode! Remembering you only have so many books makes me want to write faster, and books you'll never write is a great sigment.

I love all the ways Brandon uses his time signing things: free lectures that make me a better writer and person, whatever; free bs about popcorn and k-pop, worth every non-fungible token I've never bought :~)
