This episode it is just Pip and Tee in the studio…but it is a somewhat different studio.
00:00 Introduction, and a little commentary

05:26 Making time to make author space
- The old ‘shared desk’ is dead after a hammer attack
- Two desks together mean Pip and Tee can talk to each other. Here’s what they went with.
- No one likes upside down kit set furniture
- When choosing furniture, make sure to take into account cats
- Pip is getting used to it, after perching!
- Getting cocky with a rubber band Pip found in her desk!
- Does new space mean more creativity?
- Less distractions and being together seem to be helping
- Shared offices often mean side to side seating, or back to back.
- Nick Kelly and Stacia D Kelly have a interesting layout in their office.
- Pip likes her drawers
- The benefits (and dangers) of having multiple monitors.
- Tee now has his back to the door.
- Pip and Tee have no chance of an author shed
23:18 Writers off the clock. Sense8
- As writers Pip and Tee are digging Sense8
- Even though Tee spells it wrong
- Sense8 has some of the most global, diverse and fascinating writing.
- Check out the cast
- Supporting characters are also amazing
- Like writing novels, having a plan is a good idea. Sense8 has a five season arc apparently.
- Exposes watchers to different realities.

- Even the music is beautiful
- Conan and Van Damme have their moments
