EPISODE 17: The Ink & Blood Dueling Society

This year, an incredible literary event emerged in Chicago. Masked writers, calling themselves The Ink & Blood Dueling Society, hold monthly writing duels in front of a lively audience. They craft full stories on screen while members of the public shout their thoughts. At the end of the duels, the audience decides on a winner. In this week's episode, Ben and Jim talk about the origins of this crazy event.
