#156. Oathbringer Review (Spoiler Free)

November 14th, 2017

In today's Oathbringer podcast we attempt the improbable: We review the latest Sanderson book without getting into spoilers. Craig and Ryan get back to their mano-a-mano roots and do this episode with no one but themselves. They discuss the good and bad of Oathbringer, and also give some tips on how best to read it, including the best music to accompany your readthrough.

#155. Thor: Ragnarok & Stranger Things 2

November 6th, 2017

Craig, Ryan, and Kyle are joined by Adam Palcher of A Damn Movie Podcast to discuss Thor: Ragnarok and Stranger Things 2. Where does Cate Blanchett rank vis-a-vis Thanos? (According to Craig, she ranks above anyone.) Who has the lamest cameo of all time? Who's the better secondary character, Steve or Bob? With names as exciting as those, how could you not pick both?

#154. Rankapalooza

October 30th, 2017

This is a different kind of episode, so be prepared! Craig, Todd, Kyle, and Kenn basically just hang out for an hour and rank stuff. What kind of stuff? Arnold Schwarzenegger movies, non-combat Zelda items, fast food restaurants ... pretty much anything. Enjoy!

#153. The Gathering Storm, part 2

October 22nd, 2017

Call it the Egwene episode. Craig, Kyle, Ryan, and Kenn discuss The Gathering Storm again, getting to what we didn't get to in the last episode. Egwene is the CEO of Randland. Verin has quite the secret. And was Hinderstap a necessary stop in the story? It was a good trip into the first of the Sandersion WoT trio.

#152. The Gathering Storm, part 1

October 16th, 2017

The Wonder Boys get together and discuss The Gathering Storm, Brandon Sanderson's first of three Wheel of Time books. This discussion mostly revolves around Rand and those around him. We cover why Cadsuane is worthless, why Tam Al'Thor is a great father figure, and why "love conquers all" isn't necessarily a worn-out theme in fiction.

#151. The Three Levels of Story

October 8th, 2017

Craig, Kyle, and Todd welcome guest panelist Daniel Swenson to discuss the Legendarium's "three levels" theory. This is a topic that has come up a lot on the podcast, and we haven't always done a great job of explaining what each level entails, or how they interact. Our hope is that (among other things) this will help you make some sense of our bizarre, tangential discussions, both past and future.

Check out Daniel's podcast, Dungeon Crawlers Radio

... and his book, The Shadow above the Flames

... and his facebook and twitter handle, @DanielSwenson77

#150. A Robert Jordan Retrospective

September 30th, 2017

After 11 Wheel of Time novels, and 23 podcasts about them, we've come to the end of our Robert Jordan road. (Sort of. There's still plenty of WoT to get through.) We take a pause from talking about the books individually to talk about them as a whole, and especially about the guy who brought them to us. Craig, Ryan, Kenn, and Kyle go through their laundry list of favorite and least favorite aspects of Jordan as an author, rank him among fantasy writers, and indulge in a bit of RJ trivia time.

#149. Knife of Dreams, part 2

September 24th, 2017

It's the wrap-up of the Robert Jordan portion of our Wheel of Time series with part two of our Knife of Dreams discussion. Okay, it's not really the end. (We're planning an RJ retrospective episode before diving into the Sanderson-aided books.) Come along for one more RJ-book episode, and get really uncomfortable as we kick it off with a hypothetical discussion of taking the red rod ter'angreal with us into a Seattle hotel room. Yikes.

#148. Sixth of the Dusk

September 17th, 2017

This episode was different, and a lot of fun. This was a simulcast livestream and podcast. The episode originally aired on the YouTube channel TheBlueShifting, home of Letters from the Cosmere. This was a charity event, benefiting Open Books, a nonprofit that puts books into the hands of underprivileged kids. It's worth a donation, which you can give here. Craig, Ryan, Kenn, and Megan all discuss Sanderson's least-loved work, Sixth of the Dusk. Enjoy!

#147. Knife of Dreams, part 1

September 10th, 2017

The guys tackle the <sniff> final Robert Jordan-penned book in the Wheel of Time series. The book is a fine return to form for RJ, and that of course means that the podcast is ... as pointless as ever. The winner of the Crossroads of Twilight contest is announced.
