DDashevsky ,

A great sequel

I started to listen to We've Got Worm as a way to experience Worm again without having to reread the whole thing. I quickly fell in love with Matt and Scott's dynamic and insight. I've listented to tons of their content on here and other shows and I can say that they have dramatically influenced the way that I think about and engage with stories throughout my life. This show takes the chance to dive even deeper into a work and I would say it's as good a sequel to We've Got Worm as Ward itself is to Worm.

Great Way to Read

Ever since that summer where I blazed through Worm in less than a week (I literally didn’t stop reading until I was done), I’ve been obsessed with the world of parahumans. All of Wildbow’s works are incredible, but Worm and its sequel Ward are complex, dense pieces of fiction. Listening to Matt and Scott going through Worm was nostalgic; I teared up at some more emotional points. Their deft summaries, thoughtful analysis, and genuine love for the works really shines. Listening to this podcast as I read Ward adds a level of depth to the experience that I can’t recommend enough. Thanks for all your hard work guys!

Strong recommend

It’s delightful to listen to skilled readers discussing Wildbow’s work. It’s showed me aspects of the story I hadn’t seen before and helped me to better appreciate Worm. I enthusiastically recommend this podcast.
