    Moash

    Moash

    This week on Shardcast, we're talking about everyone's favorite character: Moash. Has any other character inspired such emotion throughout the fandom as that wayward-est member of Bridge Four? We're taking a deep dive into Moash's character, with plenty of hot takes on what role he serves in the narrative, where we think he might go after Rhythm of War (RoW spoiler warning!), the most important question: Should Moash be redeemed, or should he die very horribly in a very hot fire? Stay tuned to find out.

    We have Eric (Chaos), Alyx (Feather), Ian (Weiry), Grace (Gatorgirl), Shannon (Grey), and Matt (Comatose). This episode was edited by the effervescent Alyx (Feather), despite what Eric might try to tell you in the recording! Do not believe his lies.

    Skyward 3 Predictions

    Skyward 3 Predictions

    Switching off from cosmere things, let's talk about Skyward 3! It won't be called Nowhere, but we'll still make some jokes about it. There's plenty to discuss for what could possibly happen in this book, so check it out!

    This episode we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Shannon (Grey), and for the first time, Jessie (LadyLameness)!

    If you want to see our last episode on Skyward stuff, check out our Starsight Reactions podcast: https://youtu.be/N0wrSGZ0G_Y

    We also have some bonus content totally unrelated from the podcast, but there are Star Wars, MCU, and WandaVision talk that had nothing to do with this episode, and we cut it and put it on our Patreon. You can support us for as little as $1! https://www.patreon.com/17thshard

    Fabrials and Rhythm of War Part One Epigraphs

    Fabrials and Rhythm of War Part One Epigraphs

    Let's talk about fabrials! We sure learned a bunch about them in Rhythm of War, that's for sure. This is the first of two episodes on fabrials. In this one we're going through the Part One epigraphs, which really did have a ton of fabrial stuff. We'll continue this next time, but do note Shardcast will be back to every other week after this one.

    We have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry, and who lives by a jet plane known as his laptop's fan), Evgeni (Argent), Joshua (jofwu), Marvin (Paleo), and making a return from a long, long time ago is Rosemary (Kaymyth)!

The best podcast out there

This podcast is amazing. If it was simply a bunch of nerds talking about lore, I would have never stayed with it for this long. But no they make the podcast awesome with their lax attitude toward things. I enjoy everything so much! Show and tell, Ben’s incapability to pronounce “Adonalsium”, David’s deadpan jokes, Eric’s laugh, everything about each episode is awesome. And who’s that cosmere character? My gosh it’s my favorite part. At the end of the episode I always hold my breath to see if it’s finally my turn. (That time came once and Ian got it on clue one) My favorite audio form of entertainment. I hope this podcast can go on for years to come. And if it doesn’t, then who knows! It may be revived by a certain man typing on his phone keyboard. Highly recommend. Just go ahead and click on any episode. I like Vax and Weird things. And Savantism Resonances and Compounding. And always The Who’s that Cosmere Character episodes.

Nerds!

It’s a great show. Sometimes Eric is cringeworthy but I find myself arguing and engaged with the podcast. If you have plunged down the rabbit hole cosmere this is a great podcast. I listened to others and this is the only one that gets really detailed and takes the time to factually keep itself in check. The voices sometimes get a little grading.. except for Ian and Argent... voices like butter..

All you need

Great mix of in depth discussion, fun goofs, and a great collection of information.
