Trav and Los reflect on the collaboration that makes this show a joy to create and distill a few powerful ideas.
Each episode is a test. We learn from each episode and apply the lessons to new episodes. Maybe not in ways that you think, or that you see right away. The last narrated episode was 7 months ago. But that definitely planted the seeds for what I did this last week.
Trav thinks it might be about placing tools in the bag to use later on.
Sometimes Trav is really interested in a tool, or process and itches to use it. He's been wanting to narrate and episode for a while, so when he had an opportunity, he took it. It was a risk, but we embrace trust and improvisation here.
We have built a flexible structure for the show, over time we add tools, not rules
Being a good creator is all about sampling from a wide variety of influences and using and mixing those tools.
