Touch of Iron: Timandra Whitecastle Interview

In the words of a wise author, "Garbage in, garbage out but I say if you put good stuff in, you get good stuff out." Well on this episode, Timandra Whitecastle somehow manages to take garbage in and send good stuff out! We talk about the fine art of whittling, cursing in fantasy, and a story you may have heard of about a certain special boy with a lightning shaped scar. Timandra also helps us name a few magical artifacts and lays down the law on some tough disputes. Follow her on twitter, @TimWhitecastle, and sign up for her email list at https://timandrawhitecastle.com/. Special thanks to VOLO for the intro and outro music.

Touch of Iron: Part Three

In this steamy last section we talk surprisingly long about the ideal bad boy vibe, listen through to the end for a very hot take. If you're looking for advice on your office decor, we're here for you. We can help you with the throne room that fits your personality whether you are a powerful, sexy witch or just boring old Diaz. And if you think fantasy novels don't talk about caprese salads enough, this is the podcast for you.

Touch of Iron: Part Two

Find out which dragon book man the boys get too excited about for the warm up (8:58). Luke hijacks Dan's theory about Diaz and charts a course for a forbidden (but familiar) shore. Luke gets disqualified from taking the pilgrim oath and gives some horrific wartime advice. Dan makes it out of this episode looking pretty good in comparison. Nice.

Touch of Iron: Part One

Summer is here and we're starting out... hot? And by that I mean Luke is rescinding another hot take. Turns out you actually shouldn't skip leg day. Here's a quick question for you guys; what's your wasp fighting technique? Cause Dan's got a new one you should try. I promise it's related to the book. And if you thought we weren't going to talk about the tea Diaz makes I don't know what podcast you've been listening to for the last year. Tweet us @DCitaBC your best post-river crossing tea mixtures.
