Take note, listener: at the end of this podcast, Oren will ask Chris what her favorite example of dramatic irony is, and she will have no answer. It will be very embarrassing for Oren, and everyone will have a good laugh.

There, now you’ll get to enjoy some dramatic irony as you listen to the podcast: you know something the character (or host, in this case) doesn’t know, and it changes the meaning of their words. But this episode has more up its sleeve than clever wordplay, we promise! We also talk about how dramatic irony can be used, why authors should make more use of it, and the challenges of implementing it in prose. Plus, we get old school with a discussion of some ancient Greek tragedies.
