#144. Crossroads of Twilight, part 1

We’re finally here, at the crest of the hill. It’s no secret that Crossroads of Twilight is considered the worst book in the Wheel of Time series, but we found that it wasn’t quite as bad as the hype led us to believe. Craig, Ryan, Kyle, and Kenn are still able to have a good discussion about the book, and to kick off the latest giveaway.

#143. The Dark Tower

Craig, Ryan, and Todd sit down and discuss The Dark Tower (the movie, not the book) with Skyped-in guest Jon Negroni, host of the Cinemaholics podcast. It helped to bring in the big guns, because there was a lot to go over. Long story short: The Dark Tower wasn’t a disaster, but it was nowhere near where it should have been. We spend an hour trying to figure out why. Support the show on Patreon Join the conversation on Reddit Listen to the Cinemaholics

#142. Harry Potter and the Birthday Podcast

It’s a packed house as all five regular panelists pack in to pay homage to Harry Potter on his birthday weekend. Spoilers may abound, but honestly, it’s Harry Potter: if you don’t know this story inside and out, then you probably aren’t listening to the Legendarium anyway.

#141. Winter’s Heart, part 2

The guys continue their discussion of Winter’s Heart, book 9 of the Wheel of Time series. This episode leans heavily on listener questions from Reddit, some of which even make sense. Support the show on Patreon Join the discussion on Reddit

#140. Winter’s Heart, part 1

The crew discusses Winter’s Heart, book 9 of the Wheel of Time. Topics include polyamory, yonic imagery, and whether Rand is a “good guy” or just a protagonist. Ryan gifts Craig with his new favorite analogy for what it’s like to read the Wheel of Time.

#139. Spider-man: Homecoming [poor audio]

Sorry about the ramshackle state of our audio quality! The guys didn’t have their regular setup, but they still had to get together and discuss the new Spiderman movie, which they all saw the night before taping this episode. If you can stand the poor sound quality…then enjoy!

#138. Treason, by Orson Scott Card

Alright all you Todd fanatics out there … Todd’s back! He and Craig discuss Treason, by Orson Scott Card. It was OSC’s second novel, originally published in 1979 and later updated to its current form. Although it’s wildly different from most of the stuff we read, and although we had a lot of fun tearing it to pieces, we both enjoyed it quite a bit and recommend it as a quick, interesting read.

#137. The Path of Daggers, part 2

Ryan is back, and we’re ready to finish our discussion of The Path of Daggers, book 8 of the Wheel of Time. We do some of our usual complaining about a few things, but mostly we defend “the slump” and give Robert Jordan some props for how much level-three stuff he fit into one conversation between two side characters.

#136. The Path of Daggers, part 1

We’re without Ryan on this one, and unfortunately it’s noticeably less intelligent. Just don’t tell him I typed that. But Craig, Kyle, and Kenn take on the first discussion of The Path of Daggers, book 8 in the Wheel of Time.

Duration: 01:01:40

#135. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Craig and Ryan welcome new panelist Kayla to help them discuss the newest entry in the Legend of Zelda series: Breath of the Wild. The panel has a wide range of experience with both the game and the series as a whole, so we hope that makes for a good discussion of each. Enjoy!

#134. A Crown of Swords, part 2

In part two of our Crown of Swords podcast discussions, the guys answer another voicemail, discuss the intricacies of balefire, and consider the mark that Cadsuane left on Brandon Sanderson. Support the show on Patreon Join the conversation on Reddit

#133. Redshirts: A Discussion With Three Tangents

First of all, our apologies. The audio quality on this episode is terrible. But when you can’t get the mics to work right, what do you do? You record anyway! Enjoy our rambunctious, bizarre, tangential conversation about Redshirts. Join the conversation on Reddit Support the show on Patreon

#132. A Crown of Swords, part 1

Forgive us, listeners, for we have sinned. It has been far too long since our last episode. Hopefully things pick up well, though, as we hit the halfway point in our epic journey through Randland. Although some say that this is where WoT starts to slow down, but we were all well-entertained. Except for the Morgase chapters, of course. Enjoy!

#131. Lord of Chaos, part 2

Part two of our epic two-hour discussion of Lord of Chaos, book 6 in the Wheel of Time series. Rand and Elayne might be kissin’ cousins. More about Rand and Alanna’s bond. Dumai’s Wells, no need to say more.

Duration: 01:02:45

#130. Lord of Chaos, part 1

We begin our Lord of Chaos discussion by featuring a couple of voicemails we received through the website. (You should send us one, too!) We also get to a few written questions from Redditors, as well as our own thoughts on the book. Support the show on Patreon Leave a voicemail on our site Join the new Reddit community

#129. WoT Question Catch-up

We take an hour to play catch-up on some of our points and your questions that we never got around to in the first 10 Wheel of Time episodes. So, do we actually catch up? Ha ha ha! No, of course not! But we get to a few more things and clarify a few others. Enjoy this bonus WoT discussion. Support the show on Patreon Join the new Legendarium subreddit

#126. Dauntless, by Jack Campbell

Haven’t read this one yet? Don’t worry about it! Dauntless isn’t the type of book that relies on a surprise ending, so feel free to listen along and let us whet your appetite for this modern scifi classic. Craig and Todd welcome new panelist Scott for this one.

#125. The Fires of Heaven, part 1

First, we announce the winner of the WoT-themed giveaway. Then we get into The Fires of Heaven, book 5 of The Wheel of Time. We talk about a lot of stuff, but the most important may be the question, “What’s up with the menagerie, RJ?”

Duration: 01:09:56

#124. The Shadow Rising, part 2

We mop up our discussion of The Shadow Rising, book 4 of the Wheel of Time. Craig, Ryan, Kyle, and Kenn dive into the Perrin chapters, where he and Faile have moved from “utterly rage inducing” to just “pretty annoying most of the time.” The final Word of the Day is revealed.

Duration: 01:28:01

#123. The Shadow Rising, part 1

Spoilers for all of The Shadow Rising. It’s a frantic rush to cover as much as we can as we work our way through a discussion of this mammoth, 386K-word novel. This discussion turns out to be almost exlusively about the adventures of the crew in the Aiel Waste. Special attention is paid, per Reddit request, to the vision in Rhuidean. Word of the Day number 2 of 3 is revealed.
