When two characters have an intense conversation, it deepens a story the way nothing else can. Dialogue is key to worldbuilding, and in this episode we talk to illustrious TV writer and showrunner Javier Grillo-Marxuach (The Middleman, Lost, The Dark Crystal) about how to do it right. We explore quippy barbs, fake accents, and what happens when every character in a story talks like they are the same person. That’s right: We’re having a dialogue…about dialogue. And yeah, it’s going to get meta.
