My partner and I are both screenplay writers - I've written a play before and also use my scripts to make comics. As a result, we have a co-created fictional universe that we have worked on together for over two years.
We recently had an idea for a podcast which hasn't yet been named.
The basic idea would be: Two writers start with nothing but a single-sentence idea. Together we develop the idea until we have created a cast, storyline and drafted some scenes. The podcast would have extra segments too that we're currently coming up with ( we're keeping those kind of secret for now ) but since I've already got the equipment required to record audio and can easily create the art for it we're more or less ready to begin working on it.
An additional idea would be to challenge the audience to submit a piece of any form that is based on the concept we explore - this could be an illustration, comic strip, animation, script, short story (literally anything).
We would showcase people's submissions as one of our segments, giving people some much needed promotion for taking part.
What are your opinions on our idea? Do you know of any other podcasts based around writing exercises? Would you be interested in such a podcast?
