Good as the Books
Love listening to Gus and Ali. It’s like sitting down with old friends while learning about a fantastic fantasy series for the first time. I always laugh a lot and love learning the little WOT tidbits and diving into discussions of feminism and social justice. Heartily recommend for anyone remotely interested in Jordan’s series.
World Class Podcast
Ali and Gus have created a podcast that is an absolute delight to listen to. Ali’s “hot takes” and sense of humor is nothing short of comedic genius, and Gus plays the perfect straight man to her frantic energy (although he is hilarious as well!). I am constantly laughing out loud in the most literal sense, sometimes to the point of tears.
And throughout it all, both of them show a keen insight into writing and fiction, a sincere love for Robert Jordan and The Wheel of Time, and an open and accepting worldview (Trans Lives Matter). All in all, this show is simply wonderful.
Thank you both for everything you do. Keep up the good work.
Top notch with great audio quality!
One of the best read along Wheel of Time podcasts! The hosts have a great dynamic with one who has never read the books & one that has read the full series. They are very good about having no spoilers but lots of fun theories. I can not stress how good the audio quality is. You can tell lots of work & care went into this podcast.
