    Essential Elayne

    Essential Elayne

    In the third of the Essentials series, the Gleeman and the Innkeeper dissect the character of Elayne Trakand, Daughter-Heir of Andor, and try to pin down exactly what makes Elayne Elayne, and whether or not she's even essential to the overall story. They are joined by the esteemed guest, Kayla aka Master of the Deck, and in between good-natured ribbing, the three of them reach a startling conclusion.

    What do YOU think? Is Elayne Essential?

    Essential Perrin

    Essential Perrin

    With the TV series upon us, we decided to take a stab at streamlining the series, starting with The Gleeman's favorite character, Lord Goldeneyes himself, Perrin Aybara. Given that the story is ultimately about the Dragon Reborn and his fight against the Dark One, what parts of Perrin's story are extraneous? What can we cut, merge together, or twist around to fit as much of the "essential Perrin" into the show as we can, without going off on tangents that take books to resolve?! Matt and Brian are joined by their good friend Lisa, aka Saucy Blue Confetti, to discuss refining the Essential Perrin. This is the first of our Essentials series!

Twitch Avery ,

How can you not enjoy a podcast with an Innkeeper and a Gleeman chatting!

As an avid fan of the Dusty Wheel it was an easy transition to a podcast with Innkeeper Hatch and his Gleeman friend! Everything Matt Hatch does is enjoyable for a fan of WOT. Period!

Rakugal ,

A pure joy for all WOT fans!

Ever sit down for a good bull session with friends about something you love? If so, and if you love Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series this podcast is for you. The Innkeeper, the Bard and the guests are all Hard Core Fan Freaks! The discussions range from deep dive to tongue in cheek, and the disagreements are friendly and often hilarious.

This one is a winner!

Jen Isgro ,
