incredible

This podcast is curing my depression, clearing my skin, watering my crops, feeding me like a llama with abundant grain… I love how the hosts dive deep into the characters and aren’t afraid to criticize the story even as they love it!

Excellent

Reminds me, in the very best way, of reading the WOTFAQ 1990s website in middle school computer lab.

Two wonderful tour guides of the Third Age

So. You’ve seen the trailers and the posters. The show is right around the corner and you’re feeling excited and/or curious. Maybe you don’t know what this Wheel of Time business is all about. Or it’s been years (decades?) since you dabbed your toe into the ocean of books.

Now is the time to pick up that copy of the Eye of the World and start the adventure. Robert Jordan’s epic story is a blast, but you know what makes it better? Having Preeti & Jenn along with you as you travel through the world of Aes Sedai and trollocs. They read through the books along with you and it’s like having a couple friends to share the adventure with. You get to hear things you may have missed, or things that maybe could’ve gone better, but through the giggles the true love for this series shines through. And despite them not responding as I comment into my earbuds, I still get giddy when the new podcast drops on Wednesday.

I couldn’t recommend it higher for old fans of the series or those who’d like to get started.
