Hilarious & Detailed

I just started reading WOT and am on book 3. I found this podcast recently and love it. As I finish a book I listen to the episode son it. They are hilarious and very detailed. I think what I’ve most you can tell they truly enjoy what they are doing and are having fun.

Delightful!

This podcast is genuinely a great listen whether you’re a casual reader or an uberfan of the wheel of time—sincere engagement with the material by entertainment professionals that make appropriate fun of the parts of the books that are genuinely bizarre, while also offering insightful commentary on the glorious parts of the series, big and small. As a millennial who read the books as tween, I thought I had outgrown WoT and all its doorstopper pulp fantasy mishegas, but Ali and Gus have reignited my love for books in a way that makes nostalgia feel fresh.

Sluice!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pleased Audible User ,

Totally Awesome!!

Thank you so much for everything you do. Your breakdowns of the books and discussions are so enjoyable, but once you started covering the Amazon show I was truly hooked. Your insight and deep dive into the show just blew me away and changed my mind about a lot of episodes; especially the season 1 finale. I absolutely hated it, but after listening to you two I watched it again and don’t hate it now… just strongly dislike 🤣 Lastly thanks for going over the Writers Strike, I really appreciate the explanation of everything going on. Good luck! Bless you both and I can’t wait to hear the rest of your coverage of WOT on Prime season two 👍🏾 #LanfearRules💯 #That’sMyMurderWitch😏
