    Wheel of Time Spoilers 291 - LOC - Ch 7 - A Matter of Thought

    Excitement about the WoT TV show has led to massive growth in the fandom and listenership, to the delight of all of us who have been enjoying the series alone for years.
    Who would watch The Odd Couple remade with Birgitte and Moghedien? Is growing flowers with the Power is a waste of energy? In how many ways is the royal house of Andor needed for the Last Battle, and how many times does Elida misinterpret her own foretellings? What exactly is a silverpike?
    This chapter really shows us the challenges of long-distance communication bottlenecks; even as the Salidar Aes Sedai learn how to use the Unseen World to communicate they still don’t think in terms of email. It also offers up so many juicy details that we really think the term “the Slog” needs to be reclaimed as a point of celebration rather than a drag.
    The Salidar Six behave like foolish children in the face of a monstrous nightmare, but fortunately Elayne and Suian are there to rescue them.

    Wheel of Time Spoilers 290 - LOC – Ch 6 – Threads Woven of Shadow

    It’s a Forsaken Festival! Three separate Forsaken POVs give us an unprecedented view into their plots.
    Sammael meets with Graendal and argue about politics and the nature of reality amidst the depths of depravity. Classy.
    This is the chapter in which we learn the overwhelming majority of what we know about Shara! We also learn more about Graendal’s history before turning to the Shadow. Her newest additions to her collection of pretties are causing chaos in Arad Domon, all the better of a smokescreen to hide herself in at Natron’s Barrow. She tells him exactly what she’s doing, and where Demandred is, but Sammael only thinks with his sword and doesn’t believe her.
    Semirhage tortures Cabriana Mecandes for information to pass along to the newly reborn Arangar. She also ponders Shaidar Haran, and so do we. This is a chapter which has in particular been referenced many times by this podcast (and the rest of the fandom) for its infodump about Fades in general and The Hand Of The Dark in particular.

    Wheel of Time Spoilers 289 - LOC - Ch 5 - A Different Dance

    Mat's Band of the Red Hand is becoming more sophisticated in it's organization. We learn about Redarms, and how Mat enforces discipline on his army. After he hears some shouting outside, Mat discovers a Hunter for the Horn “Shaking a little boy like a dog with a rat” after apparently finding the boy sitting on his horse. Whether or not the boy was trying to steal the horse we're not sure but, that certainly has no bearing on Mat quickly taking a liking to 'the ugliest boy he'd ever seen'.

    An irascible old farmer named Hu discovered one morning that his best rooster had flown into a tall tree beside his farm pond and wouldn't come down, so he went to his neighbor, Wil, and asked for help. The men had never gotten along, but Wil finally agreed, so the two men went to the pond and began climbing the tree, Hu first. They meant to frighten the rooster out, you see, but the bird only kept flying higher, branch by branch. Then, just as Hu and the rooster reached almost the very top of the tree, with Wil right behind, there was a loud crack, the branch under Hu's feet broke away, and down he went into the pond, splashing water and mud everywhere. Wil scrambled down as fast as he could and reached out to Hu from the bank, but Hu just lay there on his back, sinking deeper into the mud until only his nose stuck out of the water. Another farmer had seen what happened, and he came running and pulled Hu out of the pond. 'Why didn't you take Wil's hand?' he asked Hu. 'You could have drowned.' 'Why should I take his hand now?' Hu grumped. 'I passed him just a moment ago in broad daylight, and he never spoke a word to me.”

    Rand weaves a gateway to his “Farm” which we learn is where he's been depositing the male volunteers to be tested for any ability to channel. Rand does not know how to test the men, which is why he believes he needs Taim even this early in the game.

Another reason to read WoT

I can’t count how many times I’ve read The Wheel of Time. Seth and Patrick have given me another reason to read it again. Their chapter by chapter reread brings new ideas and theories that I love to think about. Thanks guys!

I’m nodding

I thought I knew as much as I would ever need to know about Robert Jordon’s Wheel of Time series, but, after listening to 149 episodes of this Podcast I realize there is much more to learn. Seth and Patrick are passionate about the story and the characters. I like how they interact and leave discussion open to anyones interpretation. No know-it-alls here. Their format is simple and consistent, except when they have an occasional guest that always adds to the flavor of the discussion. The third member does not say much but likes to interact in the background. Please please please - keep it going!
