#204. Assassin’s Apprentice (Farseer #1)

November 19th, 2018

It's our first episode discussing Robin Hobb's Farseer trilogy, starting with Assassin's Apprentice. This is one of the few times when the panel was somewhat baffled by the accolades a book received. We all had a somewhat rough time, but we tease out what our complaints are, what we think the book's strong points are, and whether our perception of the story will change with books two and three.

#201. Frankenstein

October 29th, 2018

It's a surprise Halloween episode, with the 200th anniversary of the book that arguably launched the modern science fiction genre. Craig, Ryan, and Kyle take on Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, discussing its author, its historical and contemporary significance, and the ever-applicable themes found therein. Pro tip: If you're in high school, this book is a no-brainer as a source to answer almost any AP English Lit essay question.

#200. Craig’s EVERYTHING Trivia

October 21st, 2018

It's us at our most self-indulgent, as we spend an hour playing trivia games and telling awful jokes. So...it's pretty much like every other episode, we just didn't have to read a book for it. So it's a win for us. Anyway, enjoy the intense competition, the joy of victory, the agony of Kenn winning, etc. Thanks, everyone, for 200 episodes of the Legendarium.

#199. Republic of Thieves (Gentleman Bastards #3)

October 10th, 2018

Craig and Ryan swap out Kyle for Kenn (you can decide if that's an upgrade or a downgrade) for this final installment in our Gentleman Bastards podcast series. The general internet consensus is that the GB books declined from the first to this one, but does the panel agree? We discuss the arrival (finally) of Sabetha onto the scene, the A/B structure, some strengths of Lynch as a writer, and of course ... our favorite swears from the book.

#197. Red Seas Under Red Skies (Gentlemen Bastards #2)

September 23rd, 2018

Buckle up for the sweariest episode to date. We bleeped most of it, but still...maybe best not to play this one with your kids in the car. Craig, Ryan, and Kyle take on book two of Scott Lynch's Gentleman Bastards sequence: Red Seas Under Red Skies. The pirate-themed Locke Lamora adventure did some things better and some things worse than it predecessor, but if nothing else, it provided an hour of amusing conversation. Enjoy.
