Episode Description

There is no denying that soap fans are extremely creative. Just take a look at the crop of fan fiction sites, sites that take existing soap characters and craft original storylines for those characters. This week we're celebrating that creativity. Marcie Jacobs, creator of StoryClub Games, visits SCL to talk about a new game that's sort of a marrying of fan fiction meets Sex and the City with a twist of Mad Libs. She and Dan (and callers) play the game live on-air. Plus, January LaVoy drops by to talk about what she’s been up to since her last appearance as One Life to Live’s Noelle, and to chat about her husband-to-be competing for Groom of the Year honors in an online contest! Then, Damian Tracy talks about Secrets, the online soap he created, and the challenges involved in standing out from the rest of the web soap crowd.
