Warbreaker: Part Three

Dan kicks this episode off by bringing up Game of Thrones yet again, in spite of his earlier pledge to stop talking about it (5:04). As we wrap up the book Dan decides to ruin the idea of Kalad's Phantoms for all of us, but also acknowledges how horrible his theory from Part Two was. If Luke's feminist rant last week wasn't enough for you, we're here for another (slightly more serious) round in this episode. And stick around to see how Luke manages to make yet another Chopped reference.

Special thanks to VOLO for the intro and outro music.

Warbreaker: Part Two

Luke is lookin fresh and no man is gonna stop him (07:30). Your favorite fantasy fellows propose several crucial innovations for T'Telir. Dan, known to some as fantasy Sherlock, pieces together a brilliant prediction about the Returned. Also, if you thought we were done talking about what the Returned would eat you must be on your second episode ever. Welcome. Special thanks to VOLO for the intro and outro music.

Warbreaker: Part One

Dan kicks us off by attempting to alienate our listeners with a hot take about superhero movies (8:30), feel free to tell us how you feel about his awful opinion. This episode was a wild one and covers the first 20 chapters of Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson. There are a lot of chances for audience participation so tweet at us with your best flower related recipes with #YummyFlowers and your best mundane jobs for the Returned with #ReturnedZipRecruiter. Oh and we also have a strong debate over which city in Warbreaker is the best to live in. Listeners, please inform Dan that T'Telir is obviously better.
