Our planet is so enormous that it can often appear flat to those living on it, as time went on and we determined it was a sphere, many still chose to assume it was a flat disc. While this notion is outdated, it is possible to construct an artificial planet as a discworld, and such worldbuilding shapes may have some advantages over a sphere. In this episode we will examine a number of Flat Earth models and some variations on the theme, and see what advantages and disadvantages they have, along with the challenges in constructing them.
