Necessary Structure Lessons for any Screenwriter.
I recently discovered this podcast series during a cross-country road trip, finding it to contain the most focused and insightful screenwriting structure discussions I've come across. The hosts breakdown core beats and showcase how each beat pertains to the external and internal goals. My favorite podcast was The Shawshank Redemption, which detailed how seemingly insignifanct scenes furthered theme and aligned with crucial structural signposts.
