Brilliant

Insightful and intelligent analysis of the text/story and fun discussions (and not just in regards to this novel). Alastair has a melodious and upbeat voice (very enjoyable to listen to). Couldn't recommend more.

Terrible host and alleged abuser

Google the host and all sorts of things start popping up. Don’t waste your time.

Great analysis and podcast!

Love Alastair's podcasts! His There and Back Again series is what got me into podcasts orginally and like that one, StormsOTW has a great balance between fun and knowledgable analysis. I'm glad the podcast will run longer in order to maintain the same level of detail as his other work! He dissects both the book and the TV show in this podcast which makes for an interesting comparison.
