  1. Tomorrow, Shardcast returns, and this time it is live and on video! What could go wrong? Sssh, don't remind us about the terrible Words of Radiance release stream, it will be flawless. The stream will begin 6:00pm Mountain time, which is 5pm Pacific and 8pm Eastern. And if you miss it, it'll be on Youtube immediately! We can't promise it will stay on topic, but we can promise it is at least a shard of a Brandon Sanderson podcast. The Google+ event is here and that should open the Hangout when it becomes available. We should also note that this is the live, unedited version, and there may be some language that will be edited out. We look forward to seeing you!
  2. What indeed! Two things have occurred: 1. Josh has a new job so we have to shift a lot around to reschedule. 2. Google+ Hangouts has truly abysmal video quality, and we are committed to the video podcast of things. Moving away from this requires finding a new streaming site (hopefully with a FAR superior chat), and also getting the broadcast software all set up. This is also taking some time. Long story short, we will return in January for more (and better) Shardcast action. Oh wait, let's be clear: January 2015. It's probably important for me to specify the year so you know it is one of those actual soon things, not the "soon" that corresponds to the movement of glaciers. Sorry about the lack of communication there
  3. We have a treat for you today. Our illustrious and radiant (see what I did there?) Alyx, also known as FeatherWriter, is doing a very special podcast series where she records her live reactions as she reads Words of Radiance for the very first time. There is crying. There is sobbing. Fangirling. Descent into sleep-deprived madness. It's everything you'd ever want from a reaction podcast, and I guarantee 40% more people will fall in love with her than before (in which case, back off.). So how The Splintercast Reads is going to work is that Alyx records her reactions and edits out the silence. If you were wondering how she could go so fast through a chapter, that's because of Hollywood magic. Or at least basic sound editing skills. Same thing. In today's entry--and we will be posting these daily--Alyx finishes Part One and does the second interlude. Since she read the sample chapters and wants these reactions to be of her first reading, she's skipped the samples in this series. But absolutely everything else will be recorded for you to hear, love, and of course, lovingly mock. So, without further adieu, I introduce you to the Splintercast. And where does it start? Well, the infamous chapter 7, of course: (Obviously, this will have spoilers for the chapters that are being discussed!)
  4. This is our final Splintercast--well, at least of the Words of Radiance variety. Here Alyx talks more about her feelings (because you know you want more of that), and about all the stuff she missed. Prepare yourself for a full hour of her talking about this massive, wonderful book. It's been a great run. Thanks for listening. We hope you've enjoyed them! Did you listen to all of Splintercast? Give us some feedback!
  5. In this episode of Splintercast Reads Words of Radiance, there's footwear involved. "Is this a Shattered Plains patrol?" Yes, Alyx, yes it is... Hilarity ensues. There's linguistics, pronunciations, and more! Much stanzas. Very Verses. Wow. This is Splintercast. (Today's Scrounger count: 1. Much surprise.) Discuss this podcast here or in our Splintercast Reads Words of Radiance topic!
  6. Hey guys. Splintercast Reads Words of Radiance is almost over. The last episode will be posted after midnight, so not too far away, then I think Saturday I'll post Alyx's Words of Radiance wrap-up. Given that we are almost done, I want some feedback on how it all works. How did you like Splintercast? What should we change? The most obvious feedback would be "stick with a schedule" and "get them iTunes". The scheduling issues were not ideal, and we're sorry. It was a combination of bad timing on both Alyx and I's part. As for iTunes, I'll work on it after the last Splintercast is up. But other than those, what else? Did you like the episode structure? Would you prefer shorter, more frequent episodes (say, one chapter at a time more often)? We were kind of shooting in the dark here, so I want to know
  7. We're here. The "soon" is now, everyone. You've waited for eons and now Shardcast is at last here! And now, for what you've all been waiting for... ...to hear Kerry, Josh, Eric, and Zach blab about random stuff. Yes, okay, this is a rather jokey, introduction episode to Shardcast. Truly this is the most introductiony podcast there ever was. Hear us talk about the origin of our site name, talking about ourselves, top hats, and most importantly: Vin's Pokemon team. If you think we are kidding, you are sorely mistaken. Here at Shardcast we don't give you the news you need, but the news you deserve.
  8. What else is there to say? It is the last section of Words of Radiance. You know what's coming. You know Alyx will freak. And stress about Renarin until she seems him... Look, I'm not going to spoil it. Enjoy. There will be one more Splintercast tomorrow, one that's a whole book wrap-up, but other than that, we're done! Did you listen to all of Splintercast? Give us some feedback!
  9. It's a horrible, horrible thing to keep you waiting, so here's a Splintercast very early Wednesday. In fact, you've waited for this moment since you first heard Alyx's rampant Shallan/Renarin shipping. You've waited as she gets more tired, more emotional, and goes deeper into the depths. Prepare yourself for the breakdown and the rest of the amazing climax. (It happens early in 86, by the way...) The journey ends Friday, and then there will be an extensive, hour long wrap-up podcast. We're almost done with this sequence of Splintercasts. Can you believe it?
  10. We're deep into the climax, so what can I even put in the description that isn't immediately spoilery? This chapter contains one of my favorite lines in the entire book. And Alyx gets emotional--but since when is that new? Such emotion. Much wow. This is Splintercast.
  11. In this episode of Splintercast, Part Four of Words of Radiance really kicks off with something you really didn't expect to happen, and it is wonderful and terrifying.
  12. It's the end of Part Four on Splintercast today, plus the next set of interludes, featuring our favorite nicknamed character, Mr. T (Taravangian). I pity the fool who doesn't listen to this episode right now. What are you, Rocky Balboa and think you can fight Mr. T? No, of course not, so you better listen to Alyx's continued insanity right now. Splintercast will be finished June 16th, and it looks like the schedule will go without a hitch. I hope you've enjoyed these reactions as much as I have, and just wait for Part Five.
  13. Our heroes reach the center of the Plains and confront the Voidbringers today on Splintercast. Tensions ramp. The battle begins. And Kaladin makes a realization that will change everything.
  14. Ladies and gentleman. Boys and girls. Brightlords and brightladies. It is time for Part Five of Words of Radiance, and it's just as wonderful as it sounds. In the immortal words of Samuel L. Jackson: hold onto your butts.
  15. Today, Kaladin and Shallan confront the chasmfiend, and anything more would be far too spoilery of an introduction. Enjoy the insanity of Feather in this Splintercast.
  16. This time on Splintercast, we get a Shallan flashback, where she plans for her family to escape. Kaladin and Adolin have the best bromance of all time, and Alyx freaks out (but that isn't new). Then we actually see Dalinar again! And Wit appears, and has a conversation with Amaram, and gets one of my favorite lines in the whole book. It's wonderful. Prepare yourself for more Splintercast right now.
  17. It's time for a super-sized Splintercast. (You should maybe call this one a Splinter+Slivercast or something) And this is it. The moment you've waited for. One of the moments where you know Alyx will lose her entire mind. Yep: it's the duel at the end of part three. What more could you ask for? Really, you should just listen to these right now.
  18. What, a Splintercast actually on Monday, when we said it would be? Madness. Well, it is episode seventeen, so, you know. It was all part of the master plan. It's the beginning of part four, so enjoy!
  19. It's Splintercast Wednesday! On today's episode, Kaladin mopes (surprise!), and we meet a Herald. (Or, as Brandon puts it, "a man who thinks he's Taln," whatever that means. Mraize is in it, so you can imagine Alyx's reaction. Prepare yourself for this Splintery goodness.
  20. On this episode of Splintercast, we get the interludes after part three, which are Lift, Szeth, and Eshonai. Unfortunately, you don't get audio on the Lift interlude, since that was available before Words of Radiance, but you do hear a lot of Alyx freaking out about Eshonai!
  21. This episode of Splintercast is brought to you by Beyonce* and her new hit single, Single Shards. "If you hate it then you should've put a Splinter in it." Yep, Odium loves it. *Lyrics may not actually be written by Beyonce.
  22. Welcome back to The Splintercast Reads Words of Radiance. In this section, Alyx mentions Renarin and her RP group, Sydney Scroungers, in the first two minutes. If you don't know Alyx, well, I need to tell you something. She really, really likes Renarin. You know how Wit enjoys mockery so much? Alyx loves Renarin even more, and while you think I'm joking, well... you just keep listening to Splintercast and I think you'll see I am not at all. Here we listen to the second Eshonai interlude, and then we move into the first two chapters of Part Two! Enjoy! As always, there are spoilers for these chapters, obviously. Kind of challenging to react to what is happening without giving away what occurs. From here on out, there are no more sample chapters, so everything will be in chronological order and no skipping!
  23. We're back! Where have we been? Did Odium Splinter us in our sleep? Well, that's entirely possible that he Splintered my brain, yes, but it's mostly due to busy busy business on both Feather and I's part. Fear not, though, because Splintercast is going to dare to do what a 17th Shard podcast has never done: use a schedule. New content will go up three (maybe four) times a week, on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. A buffer is in the works so you don't have to wait more. Woo! (Truly, we are the most professional. Sorry :/ ) One reason for the delay was also a glitch in audio editing, which Feather warns you about when it happens. It isn't much that is lost, fortunately. In any case, enjoy more of The Insanity of Feather. (That sounds like a really bad sequel to The Birds or something...)
  24. Splintercast Reads Words of Radiance is back, and every chapter here is fifteen minutes long, or longer! Is it a special event? Of course it is! It's our gift to you, our loyal listeners. (No it isn't; that's just how it happened. I mean, shush, it is a gift obviously.)
  25. Look, when I say this is the best day of Splintercast yet--or, quite possibly ever--I'm not kidding. This is Alyx's very favorite. Just listen to Chapter 41. There are gasps and also, perhaps desks broke. It's hard to tell. And that's not all, because then you get to her totally fangirl over Mraize. It's a very deep kind of love there. Also, kittyspren.
