#182. The Name of the Wind, part 3

May 24th, 2018

Welcome to the final installment of our Name of the Wind podcast series! Kyle is once again absent for this episode, so Craig, Ryan, and Kenn deal with the incredibly annoying technical issues themselves while they talk about Kvothe's adventures with Denna and the Draccus, the ending (or lack thereof) of the story, and the correct but archaic definition of corruption. Next up: The Wise Man's Fear!

#181. Leaf by Niggle

May 13th, 2018

In 1944, Professor Tolkien published a short story about a strange little man who was obsessed with a single piece of art that consumed his entire life. Sound familiar? It should. And if it doesn't, then listen on, and we'll lift the extraordinarily thin veil from this little wishful allegory. Ryan's taking a sick day for this one, so Craig, Todd, and Megan hash this one out without him.

#180. The Name of the Wind, part 2

May 7th, 2018

Is Kvothe a Mary Sue? Or maybe a Harry Potter? Why does Denna seem so hot? If Ambrose were a dessert, would it have marshmallows? It's chs. 36-66 of The Name of the Wind, so strap in for ... not much, since very little actually happens in this section. We're Kyle-less today, so Craig, Ryan, and Kenn sit down for an hour of NotW talk.

#178. The Name of the Wind #1 (chs. 1-35)

April 23rd, 2018

Welcome to the first(ish) of three episodes on The Name of the Wind, the first book in the Kingkiller Chronicle, by Patrick Rothfuss. Craig, Ryan, Kyle, and Kenn get right into the heart of why people love Rothfuss: the prose. Even in just the first third of the book, there are plenty of writing samples to choose from as they discuss whether "proetry" is the good, right, or best approach in genre fiction.

#177. The Name of the Wind “Bonus” Episode

April 17th, 2018

Honestly, we debated even releasing this one. But it's probably just interesting enough to be worth listening to. The audio is terrible, and for a panel that enjoys digging into deeper themes and philosophy, we tended in this one to stay pretty surface-level. Craig (2nd readthrough), Ryan (2nd), Kyle, (2nd), and Kenn (1st time!) make their way through the first 35 chapters of The Name of the Wind, the first book in the Kingkiller Chronicle. Enjoy, if you dare. We're going to try this again next week!

#175. Oathbringer #4 (full cosmere spoilers)

April 2nd, 2018

Spoilers, ahoy! The four of us, plus some guy named Kenn, dive into the weeds on Oathbringer, saying some of the things that were left unsaid after the last 3 episodes. There are far fewer tears, but to make up for it, there's ... well, no, apart from that, we've got nothing. But maybe you'll enjoy this episode anyway!

#174. The Last Battle (Narnia #7)

March 26th, 2018

We toyed with using the "explicit" tag on this one, just because of all the ass jokes around Puzzle the donkey. But we didn't. Craig, Ryan, Todd, and Kenn wrap up the Narnia series with The Last Battle, in which Lewis sends Narnia out with a bang. Hope you've enjoyed our, uh ... special treatment of Narnia, in a style only the Legendarium could ever hope to descend to.
