    The FELLING NIGHT Crowd - Character profiles

    The FELLING NIGHT Crowd - Character profiles

    Pull up a seat at the bar, as we turn the spotlight on the regulars at Newarre's very own Waystone Inn -- Old Cob, Graham, Jake, Carter, Shep (RIP), and Aaron the smith's prentice. In this episode, we discuss the stories that Old Cob (and Chronicler) tell about Kvothe and Taborlin, what these interludes can tell us about the overall story, and how these guys might play into Day Three.



    This podcast will keep rolling along at its own pace like a meandering caravan - thank you for all the support! Anchor.fm has been rolled into Spotify and there are some new processes on the back end, so please let me know if there is anything weird with the feed.

    TRAPIS and religion in Temerant - With special guest John from Two Geek Soup

    TRAPIS and religion in Temerant - With special guest John from Two Geek Soup

    How is the road to Tinue, my friends? We're coming up on the end of another year, and my friend John from Vintas stopped by the troupe to talk about Trapis - just in time for Midwinter!



    We talk about Kvothe's time in Tarbean, compare what we know about religion in Temerant, and discuss parallels between the Tehlin religion and real-world faiths from our own backgrounds studying Christianity and the Bible. We of course talk about the story of Tehlu and Encanis, and pack a lot of other discussion in, too. Hope you enjoy!

    Interlude - Patrons, maids, and metheglin (and the true names of things)

    HELLO! We are preparing to dust off our cloaks of no particular color and get back to it. Checking in with some housekeeping, some thank-yous, and some self-deprecation :) I also went back through all my old episodes to find the true name of RJ...or something like that.

    Interlude - Roads to Safe Places (Pod Update + Book Recommendations)

    The troupe is settling down for a bit as RJ takes a little time to clear the waters of the ol' creative well. We chat some fantasy books and will rest up a bit before we head on down the road again. 



    My book recommendations:


    "The 13 1/2 Lives of Captain Bluebear" and "Rumo and His Miraculous Adventures" by Walter Moers
    "Sabriel" by Garth Nix
    "Path Of Deceit (Star Wars: The High Republic)" by Tessa Gratton and Justina Ireland
    "Artemis" by  Andy Weir

    BREDON -- Character Profile with special guests Page of the Wind

    BREDON -- Character Profile with special guests Page of the Wind

    Rings, pagers, and cracked pots! Nick, Jordana, and Jeremy of “Page of the Wind” have escaped from the clutches of the insatiable Mister Mailbag and join RJ for a beautiful game in discussing the character Bredon, whom we meet in Severen during “The Wise Man’s Fear.”

    Lots of Master Ash hypothesizing here, so buckle up for a ride on the Theory Train – though Jordana and Jeremy might try to convince us Bredon is just some dude. We also talk about Bredon’s motive in educating Kvothe and playing Tak with him, possible casting for Bredon, and if he is connected to the Fae, the Lacklesses, or the Jakises. I also lament the lack of diversity in the Chronicle, and Nick reminds me about the KKC webcomic that Rothfuss wrote about. We further talk about Cinder’s possible working relationship with Bredon, and those rumors about his pagan rituals. And what would a conversation about Master Ash be without Cthaeh and Denna being mentioned? Are we just reading too much into it?? Maybe! Bor Gullet will know the truth! Come on and enjoy the ride.

    Special thanks to Nick, Jordana, and Jeremy from Page of the Wind for joining me. You can find their excellent DAILY re-read of The Kingkiller Chronicle on your preferred podcatcher.

    SKARPI - Character Profile + Letters From The Tinker

    SKARPI - Character Profile + Letters From The Tinker

    We pulled up at the Half-Mast in Tarbean to talk about Skarpi on this month’s episode! And, a tinker caught up with me and delivered letters from Jim and Greg, as well as a new review. This episode is stuffed with theories, ramblings, self-corrections, and mentions of all sorts of characters: Lanre! Sceop! Selitos! Ctheah! Kvothe (of course)! I cover some of the most popular theories about this diamond-eyed storyteller and talk about how pivotal his story is in Kvothe’s journey. Grab a cup of Fallows Red and join me!

Love this podcast! Such great insights!

Nat park lover ,

A fresh perspective

A welcome change to the reread formula- taking on KKC one character at a time.

And a welcome dose of humility- many theories are discussed but none put forward as certain.

MusicJoy ,

It’s like having a friend to talk about my favorite books with

Yay!

Thank you for making this show!

I love it.
