The Way of Kings: Part Four

Looks like Dan's plan for sneaking spheres is out, but never give up folks. Research funding must be way down in Alethi society right now because we don't know anything about these Parshendi and it's wild! Also Dan finally convinces Luke not to wear frillies on the plains. Brandon never disappoints with finales so stick around for the highlight reel.

Next week we are starting The True Bastards by Jonathan French! This is book two of the series so go read the Grey Bastards if you haven't already.

The Way of Kings: Part Three

Luke hits us with a blast from the past (6:20 to skip). Dan suggests a silver lining to chasm duty and Luke is *emotional*. We also find out why Luke isn't a regular blood donor or a member of the Heralds. Also, Dan actually provides some real life knowledge in this episode. Finally, the best laid plans of mice and men...really need some work apparently. You know what, maybe they weren't the best laid plans.

The Way of Kings: Part Two

To get us warmed up Dan wants to reframe our generational nerd terminology (skip to 7:30 for book discussion). Bring Luke some frilly laces to throw on under his jacket, it honestly looks great and Dalinar needs to refine his arguments a little. Dan is sick and tired of us exploiting our limited natural resources. Sustainable living y'all. Also what's your SPM?

The Way of Kings: Part One

Of course Luke and Dan are gonna talk about the limitations of having a safehand and the power of these eyebrows. Luke points out which spren would be the most embarrassing to see and Dan postulates about what to transform this rock into. Finally, this family doesn't need money they need therapy ASAP.

Happy Holidays!
