    In this short episode, we devote about eight minutes to ch. 10-11 (they're boring) and the other twenty to RJ's Plot Gymnastics, Gojo Trigger Warning, a Forgotten D.A.R.E. Song, and how Ed is a Time-Traveling Warlock.

    Episode 209: Everything Is Still Bad and Awful

    Head's up: Chapter 9 deals with a lot of troubling content, including sexual assault, consent in captivity, and even racism, and that's pretty much all we talk about in this episode. Skip it as needed for your mental well-being.

Love the podcast!

Currently reading the shadow rising and would never have gotten this far if I wasn’t motivated by wanting to listen to these lovely people’s thoughts. If you’re starting from the beginning make sure you turn your volume down when chumbawumba plays lol there’ll be an awesome new theme song soon enough

Hate Rand, Love the Pod

Fantastic podcast - just wish there was some way to bring together my two hobby’s of listening to Wheel of Time Podcasts and Manscaping…

Only 1 star because I don’t think I can give a 0. Truly terrible

The hosts are Exactly as entertaining as you’d expect two English majors talking about a fantasy series would be. Yet way less articulate and informed than you would expect even a single English major to be. (how do you confuse “slippery” with “fuzzy”??) Tons of low volume vocal fry immediately followed up with extremely loud cackling from an off topic joke you didn’t hear in the first place. Obviously lots of Rand hate, which is fine, but their favorite character is someone they call Ed Jween? That’s a pretty unforgivable hot-take and they are on the wrong side of history and future for that one. Vague (why exactly do they hate rand so much?), constantly trying to approach things with a scholarly view but often not even using the right terminology of the topic so it just comes off as dumb, frankly. Good thing for these ones (but bad thing for the listeners) that being a podcaster has no scholary requirements or even any entertainment value requirements. Good thing for me that degrees in English aren’t a requirement for podcast review sections either.
