#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.

#173. The Silver Chair (Narnia #6)

March 19th, 2018

Todd's out sick for this one, so Craig, Ryan, and Kenn tackle The Silver Chair, the sixth book in the Chronicles of Narnia. Actually, Todd is rather missed in this one, because the rest of us didn't really have that much to say. So if you're one of those fans who loves all the tangents and barely-relevant jokes, then this episode is for you.

#172. Oathbringer #3 (part 5)

March 12th, 2018

It's our third of thr--- wait, this just in: It looks like we're going to need a fourth episode to get through everything we want to cover in Oathbringer. Strap in for a doozy on this one, because while Oathbringer has been a fun ride up to now, part 5 is really where we start getting kicked repeatedly right in the feels, and Ryan and Todd both struggle to contain their emotions in this one.

#170. The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (Narnia #5)

February 26th, 2018

Let's try something new, shall we? In the book with the least storyish story we've ever read, we base our conversation around the progression of said story. The results were ... well, they weren't much different from what we're all used to: tangents, bad jokes, and juvenile asides, with a tad bit of actual conversation thrown in. Enjoy.

#169. Prince Caspian (Narnia #4)

February 19th, 2018

Craig, Todd, and Kenn discuss the fourth, or maybe second, book in the Chronicles of Narnia. Actually, they end up discussing a lot more than that, since these Narnia episodes have become even more tangential than normal Legendarium fare. Anyway, if that's your thing, then enjoy.
