Steven Amsterdam: Do you write?
Chris Monks: All the time. It’s pretty pathetic.
Amsterdam: There would be interesting lessons to be learned in doing that.
Monks: Then you’d get a grammatically correct form letter saying “Thanks, while your piece has merit, blah, blah.” It would ruin the rest of my day.
Amsterdam: In some ways those details are a barrier to the universal.
Monks: I’m on salary, but not a lot. Now I have to put myself out there a little bit.
Amsterdam: Obviously there are different ways that people want to sit down and do it.
Monks: We’ve been thinking about it for well over a year.
Amsterdam: I think I’ve digressed a bit.
Monks: You can be forever banned.
Amsterdam: But once I started having kids, I became a homebody.
Monks: That’s the ideal scenario.
Amsterdam: Yeah. There were plenty.
Monks: Unencumbered with noise.
Amsterdam: How would you define where the story ends?
