Great podcast for Sanderson Fans

I came to this podcast looking to refresh my cosmere knowledge before Rhythm of War comes out, and I have been very impressed! While it’s not entirely comprehensive, it’s fun listening to them process the books and make predictions and see the storm light archive come together. I can’t wait to listen when rhythm of war comes out. Overall, I’d definitely recommend this podcast to anyone who loves Brandon Sanderson and the cosmere, as well as anyone who is looking for a deeper dive into popular fantasy books in general.

Unsubscribed

I had to unsubscribe. Too gushy overall. It’s almost like a form of cognitive bias whenever they cover Sanderson. They want it to be everything they ever wanted and it becomes exactly that to them. Two of the contributors, especially, are so emotionally incontinent that it really detracts from everything else the podcast is trying to do. They were covering Brandon Sanderson like they’re in a group therapy session, not a dry eye in the house, when I thought the scenes were trite and poorly written. They were in tears over scenes where I rolled my eyes. Every stereotypical and cheesy character growth sequence or climax was panned as the best, most emotionally super-valent, soul-baring, heart-wrenching, pathos-inducing prose ever written. Get it together, Sanderson isn’t even that kind of author. I usually find it difficult to like almost any of his characters, simply because I don’t wish them to be something to me personally without earning that place. But this crew thinks western literature begins here, somehow.

If in-depth discussion and fun had a love child

Just an awesome podcast where each person on the show has a great respect for one another’s opinions but also are such good friends they can mess around with one another! Everyone has such a vast knowledge of not only the Fantasy genre but also writing in general. I’ve shared this with numerous friends whether they love fantasy books and have followed numerous series on this podcast or also just the occasional fantasy reader who wants in-depth discussion about what they just read! Just fantastic!
