We're reading the Wheel of Time series of fantasy novels by Robert Jordan! We read them when we were younger, but now we are wiser.

Why? Because they're so much fun! Adventure, magic, battles, politics, treachery, horses, braid-pulling... these books are top flight entertainment. They're also, as the kids say these days, "problematic". We'll dig into it as we go.

We read about 5 chapters every episode, and we recap the events of the story, so you don't have to read along unless you want to. Join us!

The Dragon Reread Jeff Lake, Micah Sparkman, and Alice Sullivan

Fun Listen

I found this podcast after I was deep into reading the books, I wished that I had found the podcast earlier. It a funny podcast that describes the details of each chapter and the chemistry between the hosts is terrific.
Each week I listen carefully to see if Michael finally "gets one of those". There is still time.

Fun, casual, focused, spoiler free

Very few such podcasts are so fun, focused in scope, and spoiler free

My absolute favorite

I absolutely love this podcast. I listen to it while a work and is my favorite moment of the day. The jokes are great and the detail to attention to Jordan’s work is exceptional. I LOVE this podcast.
