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!

My favorite WoT podcast!

I remember finding this podcast when they were around book 5 or 6. I was not that far into the series and it was great to binge listen to catch up to where I was, then listen to the podcast every once in a while (ok it was every time I caught up to next episode) to maybe get different thoughts on things and point out stuff I may have missed. Easily my favorite of the many many WoT podcasts.

I have finished the audiobooks so now I’m waiting for them to catch up, and it is a treat every episode the release. Three great people with amazing chemistry, thoughtful insights and good humor.

Seriously great stuff 10/10 Will listen again and again.

(To creators) Sam I am? That rhyme had me dying. One of the best moments.

Love this podcast!

I went through a bunch of Wheel of Time podcasts and none were just right until I found this one. They are a great companion for my third read through. The hosts offer insightful analysis and have great chemistry. And it’s spoiler free which is nice. Highly recommend!

Fun, casual, focused, spoiler free

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