The Sword of Shannara: Part Three

Luke and Dan hit us with a very topical rant about TV these days (11:58 to skip). Of course Dan has to start with a summary of this chapter, how would anyone know what story we are reading without one? Also what is this, a continent for ants? Once again, Dan and Luke investigate the cuisine only this time they look north. Finally, Luke and Dan have some notes for the Warlock King.

Special thanks to VOLO for the intro and outro music.

The Sword of Shannara: Part Two

Dan gets us warmed up with a riveting furniture story (7:35 to skip). Shea proves that he has very poor deduction skills, the journey through the cave has some storytelling flaws, and Menion continues to be the clear MVP.

P.S. Here is the couch

The Sword of Shannara: Part One

Luke got heated at a chemical conference so if you work for ExxonMobile, you have some explaining to do! (7:35 to skip). Dan starts us off with a summary that sounds somewhat familiar, and Luke needs some ice breakers. There is a gold nugget of a story nestled in this episode, so make the royalty checks out to Luke and Dan. Which of these characters would make the best wingman? Finally, what is real? Is magic real? Prove it.
