    Kvothe attempts to get Tempi to tell him about the Lethani. We discuss whether or not Tempi is suss, and debate the rules of ‘how is bit formed?’, and talk about the hottest new dating app in Temerant.

    Kvothe realizes his blunder too late, and makes the best of it. We talk about how this moment characterizes Kvothe, and how he prefigures the political philosophy of Machiavelli. We also debate whether or not explaining his sympathy would make Kvothe’s party respect him more, or less.

    Kvothe starts a fire and causes himself problems. We discuss just what the party is making of Kvothe, and a microcosm of Kvothe’s recklessness. We analyze the characterization of Kvothe and Dedan, and discuss a much-maligned character who will become integral to this podcast going forward.

It’s like having friends who love king killer as much as you do

I found this pod through king killer twitter during the pandemic.

Started with wise man’s fear, and now am working through the name of the wind. Love this show and have been so grateful for the hours of entertainment.

Just started

Just binge listened to page 134 for the last week. Very happy so far. Love the dedication. So glad they’re already to book 2 so I can continue to listen nonstop for months. Hopefully book 3 is out before they are done.

Comfort in Ritual

I look forward to listening daily. Everything else in quarantine feels unsettled, but I know when I open my podcast library there will be a new episode to enjoy, and I find comfort in that ritual. NOTW and TWMF are such well-written books, and the symbolism and character development are worthy of many, many conversations. Thank you for your dedication to close reading of literature, and helping listeners feel connected to the three of you and to the text.
