Stephanie and Megan are back in the studio of requirement to talk more Harry Potter.

Craig, Ryan, and Kyle reconvene to discuss the fourth book in Lloyd Alexander’s Prydain Chronicles. This is Craig’s favorite book in the series, but how does it do for Ryan and Kyle? (Spoiler alert: very well.) This is the book in the series that’s probably the most meaningful, and the most interesting to read from an adult perspective.

Craig and Drew sit down to give their takes on the two latest episodes of the Wheel of Time on Amazon. How are the performances and portrayals going? How are readers and non-readers reacting? And most importantly, why do we keep recording these late at night?

Craig and Ryan are joined by Drew and Lauren McCaffrey from the Inking Out Loud podcast to discuss the first few episodes of the new Wheel of Time TV show. How faithful is the adaptation? Does the show work on its own, for non-readers? Should the crew have stayed up until 2:30 am to record all of this?

Now that every other blog/podcast/youtube channel has had their say on the movie, Ryan and Craig sit down and talk Dennis Villeneuve’s first entry in the new Dune franchise. Does it HAVE to be seen in a theater? Is the story adequately explained for a newb like Craig? Are Ryan and Craig doing enough to keep their bromance alive? How in the actual [expletive] has Ryan not seen Titanic?

Craig, Ryan, and Kyle continue their reading of Lloyd Alexander’s Chronicles of Prydain with the third installment: The Castle of Llyr. What we thought was that we were getting Princess Eilonwy’s book; what we got, though, wasn’t really that. So was it still satisfying? Is there still any meat on the bones of this series?

You asked, we delivered! It’s a no-prep, pure-fun, throwaway episode in which Craig, Ryan, and Todd sit down and talk about … well, nothing really. They give a glimpse into the trivia they did at Salt Lake FanX this year, they talk about what they’ve been watching lately, and what they’ll be reading in the near future. Enjoy…I guess?

Craig, Ryan, and Kyle sit down to discuss The Black Cauldron, the second installment in Lloyd Alexander’s classic young-readers fantasy series. This book was a Newbery award honoree, and it’s easy to see why. The guys will delve into what makes this one so good, especially compared to the previous book in the series.

Daniel Greene joins Craig and Ryan for this installment of the Author’s Shelf series. Daniel selected Mort, the fourth installment in the Discworld series. Why did he select it? Actually, Daniel isn’t quite sure, and he and the guys spend an hour trying to figure that out.

We’re now in phase 4 of the MCU, and it’s mostly taking place on Disney+. So how’s it going? Craig, Ryan, Megan, and Kenn sit down to discuss the three major shows to come out so far: Wandavision, Falcon & the Winter Soldier, and Loki (with just a dash of Black Widow thrown in for good measure).

What makes for good prose? In this episode, to better try to answer that question, Craig dives into just what the definition of prose should be. Is it simply “not poetry”? Or does is go deeper than that? With a little help from the Oxford Book of English Prose, we’re going to work our way toward a common definition of what prose actually is.

SPOILER ALERT. We talk about the ending of Harry Potter, but that’s over a decade old. So maybe this note is unnecessary. But you have it anyway.

Brent Weeks knows a thing or two about ending a story. So when Craig wanted to do an episode all about endings — why must stories end? what makes a good ending? do authors owe readers an ending? — it was a pretty easy call to ask Brent to join in.

Craig, Ryan, and Sara discuss The Stone Sky, the third and final book in N.K. Jemisin’s Broken Earth series. Was the ending everything they hoped? Was Schaffa really a changed man? Did the flashback sequences work? Stay tuned for one more Broken Earth wrap-up episode after this one.

Craig is flying solo again today (don’t worry, we’re recording a regular episode this weekend), and the topic at hand is literary homage vs outright theft. Where is the line? How should we go about thinking about books that some say are TOO directly tied to their inspirations?

Let’s try something different today. In this short episode, Craig is using his newly-found oodles of time to bring you a short, solo episode. Today’s quick topic is whether we should read deeply or widely. Which is better? What does our preference say about us? It’s a strange new format, let’s see how we all feel about it!
