The focus is on themes, characters, and applicability; they’re not smart enough to do minutiae.

This is the single greatest podcast in the history of the known space universe cosmosphere. If you do not listen to this podcast then you should be sent to the Hell of the Upside Down Sinners!! I will definitely look into Patreon support. Been a fan of this series since 1995 and I'm always looking for discussion about the books although I rarely ever take part. Keep up the good work. -Mr Carstairs
This is my second read-through the series, and I have to say that I really enjoy listening to the podcast! There are a lot of things that you've brought up that I haven't really thought about and it's so interesting hearing what other people think about what I consider to be my favourite fantasy series, if not my favourite series of all time. -Samithi
I am reading through this series for the 1st time and listening to you guys discuss them is super helpful. So i just wanted to say thanks and keep it up! -Brennon

Finished WOT last night, and this kind of in depth discussion is exactly what I was hoping to find. - Winfield Johnny
I was so ecstatic to find this. Can't wait to see the series discussed chapter by chapter. And how all of this relate. I have been reading this series since I found it years ago. Loved the first podcast and how there is such a rich history. This is perfect for long time readers wanting more info on this universe. Thank you and please don't stop! -Ritacba
I started these books back in the early 90's, so they have been part of my life for such a long time. The books and the characters are like old friends to me. I love listening to the podcast. These guys are so detailed and dedicated to the story, sometimes serious, sometimes amusing. It's nice to know that I have people on the other side of the world that love WOT like I do (probably more)! Well done! -rnrodgers

Intro: We're reading the Wheel of Time series of fantasy novels by Robert Jordan! We read them when we were younger, but now we are wiser. Why? Because they're so much fun! Adventure, magic, battles, politics, treachery, horses, braid-pulling... these books are top flight entertainment. They're also, as the kids say these days, "problematic". We'll dig into it as we go. We read about 5 chapters every episode, and we recap the events of the story, so you don't have to read along unless you want to. Join us!

Y'all are dope! Thanks for making work suck less. -Skylar
Don't ever change your style. Four episodes in and I'm hooked. I know you're aiming for new mics, but I found the sounds of someone getting up to open a fridge without editing hilarious. -Lou

Other Casts: 

Intro: Born out of a conversation on Facebook about reading through The Wheel of Time, Hank, Josh and Jaime decided to embark on a high and lofty journey, yay even an epic one. These three friends–who happen to be authors and podcasters– thought it would be fun to traverse the massive world that Mr. Jordan built and discuss it as they went. Their hope is to learn from the master, talk about what they learn, and hopefully help bring others into this world.

We will be focusing on 2 chapters each week, starting with the TEOTW, and hope that in sharing our love for this series we can inspire others to share their thoughts as well.
