#195. 2018 Summer Movie Roundup

9/10/2018
More
The band gets back together to talk about the summer movie season that's finally, mercifully, wrapping up. It wasn't much of a movie season, so Craig, Ryan, Todd, and Kenn end up talking a lot about '80s action stars, a 10-year-old TV show, and Burt Reynolds' chest hair.

#194. Getting Hyped for NaNoWriMo

9/4/2018
More
Craig and Ryan write a story! Well, not quite. But in this episode, they choose a random writing prompt, set the timer for thirty minutes, and construct a (probably really bad) story from scratch. The idea is for this to serve as inspiration. We've all--panelists and listeners alike--been reading a lot of fantasy and sci-fi, and now it's time, if you have the itch, to start writing. November is National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo, and we encourage anyone who would like to, to...

#193. Golden Son (Red Rising #2)

8/23/2018
More
(AN OATHBRINGER PLOT IS SPOILED IN THIS EPISODE.) Todd, Kenn, and Megan discuss Golden Son, the second book in the Red Rising trilogy. They talk about some characters, some events, and presumably some ideas as well. But since the person writing this episode blurb didn't participate and hasn't yet listened (I'll listen along with the rest of you), you won't get any more specifics than that.

#192. The Lies of Locke Lamora (Gentleman Bastards #1)

8/14/2018
More
In our inaugural Gentleman Bastards podcast, Craig, Ryan, and Kyle discuss The Lies of Locke Lamora. They get into the heavy strengths, the light weaknesses, and the ... colorful language employed by Scott Lynch in this masterful debut novel. Speaking of colorful language, we finally deployed the 'explicit' tag on iTunes for this episode, because, well, because we just couldn't help ourselves. We had to join in the fun. Enjoy.

#191. Red Rising #1 [glitchy audio]

8/6/2018
More
Todd, Megan, and Kenn discuss book one of Pierce Brown's Red Rising trilogy, conveniently titled...Red Rising. Topics include: its similarities to other works (cough cough Hunger Games), its prose quality, it kickass setting, and its Level-one Punchfest qualities. Megan has her first real tender moment as a panelist. Also: Yes, we know that the audio quality is ... lacking. But we didn't have time to re-record, so we'll all have to deal with it together.

#190. How To Wait For Book Three

7/31/2018
More
Wrapping up our Kingkiller Chronicle podcast series, we wrap up any last Book 3 theories that we wanted to float, and then we get into the community reaction to the wait for book 3. It's entirely possible that we go too easy on Rothfuss, but in looking into and thinking about the issue, we found some real reasons to cut the guy a little slack. That being said ... we'd love to read Doors of Stone, please. Now, if you want to skip around, here are some time stamps, for your convenience: 0:00...

#189. The Forever War

7/22/2018
More
For our discussion of Joe Haldeman's The Forever War, we're bringing you an all-new panel configuration. Todd leads Kenn, Megan, and Ryan in talking about the classic sci-fi novel, including its historical relevance, both within and without the genre itself.

#188. The Wise Man's Fear, part 3

7/18/2018
More
The guys discuss the last third or so of The Wise Man's Fear, including Kvothe's trip to Ademre, the rescue of two kidnapped girls, Kvothe's expulsion from Vintas, and his return to the University. They also talk more about the ramifications of the Cthaeh, before the rest of the panel gangs up on Craig for being (angels and ministers of grace defend us) opinionated. It's not our final Kingkiller Chronicle episode, but it rounds out the latest book, so enjoy this final-feeling...

#187. The Wise Man's Fear, part 2

7/9/2018
More
Leaving the University. Wooing someone else's crush. A month-long jaunt in the woods. Sweet, sweet, fairy sex. Finally, some plot happens in this section, and the guys are eager to discuss it. Or is it really plot, per se? We'll dig into some of the fun stuff from this section, including Felurian and the Cthaeh.

#186. Ex Machina & Annihilation

6/26/2018
More
"This is a classic film." So says Matt Zoller Seitz in his review of Ex Machina. In this episode, Craig, Kyle, and Kenn dig into both Ex Machina and Annihilation, Alex Garland's two directorial efforts. Both films deal with the nature of humanity, but from two very different angles, and unpacking them will take a herculean effort. Are our intrepid panelists up to the task? Nope!

"A younger Kvothe pursues his education at the University. There, he carries on a feud with fellow student Ambrose." And...that's pretty much it! The band is finally back together for this first episode of our Wise Man's Fear podcast series. Craig, Ryan, Kenn, and Kyle discuss the plot (such as it is), the characters, and the lessons to be gleaned from the first third of Patrick Rothfuss's book.

#184. Craig vs. Ryan vs. The World

6/11/2018
More
Due to scheduling restraints, Craig and Ryan went panel-less today, which meant putting off the stuff you actually WANT to listen to, and replacing it with stuff you do NOT WANT to listen to. This episode was a live Q&A simulcast on both Facebook and YouTube. The guys fielded both pre-submitted questions and some on-the-spot ones as well. Thanks to all who participated (in the middle of a Sunday afternoon, so all 3 of you), and for the rest: enjoy it now. Support the show on Patreon Join...

#183. Solo & Deadpool 2

6/5/2018
More
Craig, Ryan, Todd, and Megan discuss the two latest blockbusters, and one of those people even bothered to see both of them. Craig and Ryan have a "review-off" over Solo, and not to sound too click-baity, but the results may surprise you.

5/24/2018
More
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.

#181. Leaf by Niggle

5/13/2018
More
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. Support the show on Patreon Join the conversation on Reddit MUSIC: "Adventure Time" and "The Seven...

#180. The Name of the Wind, part 2

5/8/2018

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.

4/23/2018

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.
