"Well technically, podcasting is the study of matter. But I prefer to see it as the study of change."
On its 10-year anniversary, the Pilot Study crew talks "Breaking Bad" and its depiction of Walter White's first steps into anti-hero territory. Assisted by Andrew Bloom (The Andrew Blog, Consequence of Sound), we talk the show's inception and pitch process, some casting what-ifs, and wonder if "Wipe Down This" would be an appropriate title change for this episode.
For longtime listeners of the pod, you'll notice improved sound quality (finally!) and some structure changes. New year, new Pilot Study.
"Well, that's all of life, right?"
