    That is a Terrible, Dumb Show!

    Brandon and Dan start off, as normal, with a food heist. Today’s twist, though, is that it’s a historical food heist centered around coffee! They then move their conversation back to musicals, both on the stage and in cinema.

am i me? ,

It’s amusing about me to think about Ben

I came here as a reader of everything Sanderson and Wells (and WoT). It’s hilariously entertaining to see these amazing workers and probably some of the best fiction authors we’ll ever see go on amusing tangets and life stories. Dan talking about how he was in the trenches filming his adaptation while Brandon says the actors of Mat and Rand got into a big crime. Another food heist. This is honestly the best podcast one could find

I now read Dan Wells

I came here as a Cosmere fan to listen to Brandon and "some friend of his." I started I Am Not A Serial Killer last month and am now halfway through the series. Consider this a compliment to your personality or something, Dan.

Just Awesome

Brandon and Dan are just awesome. I love the fun tangents and funny stories. Overall just the best.
