Story Break is a weekly podcast from RocketJump where we (Will Campos, Matt Arnold, and Freddie Wong) sit down in the RocketJump writer's room and attempt to "break" a story for a ridiculous concept, property, or idea that we in NO way have any rights to. Join us every week as we attempt to tackle everything from beloved video games to billion dollar franchises!

This is really helpful and entertaining!
As a filmmaker who struggles with quality and engaging story creation, this podcast is one of the greatest things to listen to. I am really hooked and look forward to all the new episodes! Thank you so much guys I love your work!
This show is addicting, in a very good way!
I'm glad I caught word of this fantastic podcast so early in it's production so it wouldn't take me long to catch up. I mean, I would've listened to them all if there were already 100 episodes out, this way it's just way more convenient. Please keep up the fabulous work!
A New Favorite!
After the end of The Facerocker podcast I searched far and wide across the dunes of the internet to find a podcast with the kind of chemistry the cast had with each other. Finally this comes out and the void of audio entertainment has been filled! Seriously though the atmosphere the guys bring to this podcast is so fun and hilarious to listen too. Not only that but it's incredibly entertaining to hear what their process is like for writing out a story. If no one picks up their version of the KCU then it would be a missed opportunity.
