Rage of Dragons: Part Three

Today we're starting off with a rant that everyone is going to relate to (skip to 6:30 for Rage of Dragons). I'm not the bravest person in the world but surrendering in this case seems great, right? Also find out why Tau is all brawn and no brains and who is winning in the demon world leaderboard. Next week we are starting the Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson, read the first quarter of the book!

Special thanks to VOLO for the intro and outro music!

Rage of Dragons: Part Two

Dan may have his dumbest warm-up rant yet and Luke decides to add his own magic to the mix (9:45 to skip). Dan is pissed about the Chosen's abstinence only education BS. Luke isn't very on board with these "Gifted" and the boys take a strong position against ableism. Also if anyone can send us a picture of an avocado tree that would be super useful for part of a future discussion I am sure.

Rage of Dragons: Part One

If you were worried about Dan after last episode let us put your fears to rest before getting to the book. Finally we're back to dragons, and we're already going deep into the pros and cons of dragon scale swords. Big winner for this section; wood! Have we been underrating good quality wood? And yes Dan mispronounces Lekan this whole episode.
