#160. A Memory of Light, part 1

December 12th, 2017

There may be no beginnings or endings, but this is beginning of an ending, so that will have to do. This is part 1 of 2 in our discussion of A Memory of Light, the final book in the Wheel of Time. Craig, Kyle, Ryan, and Kenn discuss the ins and outs of the Last Battle, but reserve for part 2 any discussion of the Rand/Dark One finale.

#159. Towers of Midnight, part 2

December 3rd, 2017

The Wheel of Time may have no beginnings or endings, but we're coming awfully close to an ending. This is part two of our discussion on the second-to-last Wheel of Time book, and things are starting to get intense. Craig, Ryan, Kyle, and Kenn discuss Rand's part in this book, and get to many more Reddit questions as well.

#158. Justice League

November 26th, 2017

Craig, Ryan, Todd, and special guest Vilja Johnson pick apart the new Justice League movie. (Of course, "new" is a relative term. It's been out for about two weeks, so we're way behind in the pop culture game. Oh well.) What worked, what didn't? Craig is the unlikely, lone voice in defending Zack Snyder ... at least a little bit. He's also the only one to have seen The Punisher on Netflix, which is discussed for a few minutes at the end.

#157. Towers of Midnight, part 1

November 20th, 2017

The crew sits down for a discussion of the penultimate book in the Wheel of Time series, Towers of Midnight. Although there's a lot of what feels like time-wasting with the trial, Perrin still manages to finally come into his own in this book, and even Craig reacts with approval. More connections to Scandinavian myths, and to Kenn that's apparently a bad thing. Craig's long-time love of Nynaeve fully pays off.

#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
