The Blade Itself: Part Three

Our one year Anniversary is here! And Dan would like to celebrate it by rescinding his terrible hot take (3:17). We could not wait to talk about the Bloody Nine so hear us gush about a great fight scene very early on in the episode. Although somehow I think we gushed about Bremer dan Gorst even more. And make sure you let us know your thoughts on the debate over who is a better road trip partner: Jezal or Ferro. Tweet us @DCitaBC.

Special thanks to VOLO for the intro and outro music.

The Blade Itself: Part Two

Dan decides to start this episode with a very hot take about scooters. I don't know why. Yeah, you can skip it and tell him how dumb it was (ends at 9:40). Glokta is a popular character but he deserves some criticism, right? Tell us if you think our criticism of him is deserved. We also diagnose why Ardee has no friends, and Dan gives us another just great theory.

The Blade Itself: Part One

We are back! If you've been frustrated that we don't talk about book news enough we brought in some experts. Rhonda and Erin from Pop DNA talk to us about the controversy around Guidebook for Mortals... er, Playbook to Mortals... whatever it's called (21:10). After that we get back to our bread and butter: talking trash about characters like Jezal, Lord Marshal Varuz,... even Ninefingers?!? This is another episode where you'll have to pick a side in a contentious debate. We're talking library designs: multiple towers or ranch style? Tweet us your thoughts @DCitaBC.
