  1. Do you like mysteries? If so, great, because we're going to be talking about Aimia, Akinah, and the Scouring of Aimia this week. There's so many mysteries here, it's almost as if we don't have anything to talk about. But joke's on you, we have plenty. Oddly enough, we very easily could have called this "Dawnshardcast." You'll see why. Our cast today is Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), and Ben (Overlord Jebus). Big shout-out to Ben who edited this podcast. Send your Who's That Cosmere Character to [email protected], leave a rating and review for us on iTunes, and as always, you can subscribe to Shardcast with this RSS feed:
  2. We're at last done with JordanCon today with yet more Words of Brandon, and some are spicy. We discuss aluminum, the Iriali, dragons, how visions work, Odium's inexperience with Devotion and Dominion, the Nightwatcher, and of course, Eric rants about Shard's intents. We also finally learn more about THE BOOMBOX, so basically this is the best episode ever. This week we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), Evgeni (Argent), and Rosemary (Kaymyth). Get me my boombox, Kenton! Send your Who's That Cosmere Character to [email protected], and feel free to leave us a rating or review on iTunes! Subscribe to Shardcast:
  3. Today on Shardcast, we are talking about all of the stuff from JordanCon. This will be a twofer episode, which will be continued next week. Here we discussed Shardblades in the Cognitive Realm, answering a question we brought up last week. We also decide we are going to do an Odium podcast, and you'll see that later. We also talk about urges and demiurges. Yup. This week we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), Ben (Overlord Jebus), Evgeni (Argent), and Rosemary (Kaymyth). Also starring: terrible Skype audio due to mysterious audio drift. Send your Who's That Cosmere Character to [email protected]!
  4. Hi Sharcast team! Has a podcast yet been made that covers the various groups roaming the Cosmere (IRE, 17th Shard, etc.)? If not, I'd love to hear a recap of the different groups and theories on each... Thanks!
  5. Late April, there was JordanCon, and today on Shardcast, we have brought two cast members, Evgeni and Rosemary, to give us their thoughts on the convention. We also talk about the craziest thing from there, which was the reading of The Traveler, which you should definitely read immediately. It's some of the spiciest cosmere stuff we've gotten in a while. This week we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), Ben (Overlord Jebus), Evgeni (Argent), and Rosemary (Kaymyth). Stay tuned next week and the week after where we do JordanCon Words of Brandon analysis!
  6. This time on Shardcast, we are going to discuss one of the mysterious aspects of Oathbringer: the Sibling, and its relationship to Urithiru. We're also talking about the Dawncities and more--surprisingly, the Horneater Peaks too. And, as Ian says: "Caves? Kind of a bummer." This week we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), and joining us on Shardcast for the first time is Evgeni (Argent). My sincerest apologies about the audio; there were some exceptionally bizarre issues that occurred in editing. I've also heard that Shardcast is now on iTunes and Google Play Music. Let me know if something doesn't work out.
  7. Long ago, in the ancient days of 2016, we did a podcast back when we called this Shardkeepers, about Nightblood and Corrupted Investiture. With the advent of Oathbringer (Oathbringer spoilers in this podcast, by the way), we have not only seen more Nightblood, but we've also had a lot more Words of Brandon about it. Oh, and we're going to talk about Azure's Shardblade, too, because that's a pretty big deal. Today we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), and Matt (Comatose). Check out our previous Nightblood podcast (where I really didn't know how to edit audio nearly as well): Email your Who's That Cosmere Character to [email protected] Subscribe to Shardcast:
  8. This week we are diving back into a controversial character from Oathbringer: Venli! And of course, as is obvious if you've read Oathbringer, we have to talk about Eshonai too. Behold as we have an epic war between Ben (Overlord Jebus), Ian (WeiryWriter), and I on these characters. (My apologies this one is late; turns out 12-14 hour days all this week was a bit rough. Crazy, right?) Email your Who's That Cosmere Character to [email protected] Subscribe to Shardcast:
  9. You've asked for an introduction and analysis of the Secret Societies of Roshar, and so here we are. There are Oathbringer spoilers, but we'll talk about the Ghostbloods, the Sons of Honor, the Diagram, the Skybreakers, and several worldhopping organizations too. We also discuss how dumb some of their plans are. And we also talk about Tezim a lot. Hilariously, Ian's power went out as we first tried recording this podcast. These secret societies don't want this information out! Or something. Today we have Eric (Chaos), a crazy Diagramist. We also have Ian (WeiryWriter), a crazy Ire, and lastly, we have Alyx (FeatherWriter), a crazy Skybreaker. Yup, we've all sworn the oaths.

  10. Is there a way to get Shardcast on any podcast apps? I personally use Downcast for iOS which doesn't list it. However it can use a direct RSS feed if there is one. I only just now realized I could use the Soundcloud app to get it on my phone, so I'm finally listening to episodes, but it's not ideal.
  11. We're back to discuss White Sand Vol. 2. There's a lot to discuss, not to mention the ceiling fan and a horse. There's also apparently a person named Trell in this, which is pretty crazy. But listen to us discuss White Sand, its art change, and everything else. As you can expect, it's... uh, a very positive podcast! We have Eric (Chaos), who David thinks might actually be more annoyed with White Sand at this stage. We have Ian (WeiryWriter), ever the optimist about White Sand, and David (Windrunner), who needs to clear his throat sometime. (Stay to the very end for what is... allegedly comedy) Highlights: Trell - 1:27:30min Who's That Cosmere Character - 1:48:30 If you'd like to submit a character for Who's That Cosmere Character, email it with five clues to [email protected]
  12. This week we get more focused and actually discuss Emerald City Comic Con Words of Brandon. We discuss sand, the Fused, and one fateful bet Jebus made and Brandon crushed his dreams in dramatic fashion. We also see someone's hatred of France. We do get into analysis of some things from the Orem signing this month, too. I'm Eric (Chaos) who doesn't know how to pronounce Pacific Northwest things despite being from there. We have Ian (WeiryWriter) who is back in the Stormfather's good graces. We have Ben (Overlord Jebus) who says American water is weird. Lastly, we have Matt (Comatose), who is actually French. We also end on an epic Who's That Cosmere Character, and I feel very good about myself. Want to send in one? Email it to [email protected] Main Topic: 00:03:15 Who's That Cosmere Character: 01:32:15 Oh, and if you're wondering what Jebus's bet was, here it is: Listen to it so you can hear Jebus's soul get crushed.
  13. Today, we have a pretty crazy podcast, where Jebus and I descend into madness. We had planned to discuss what he thought of Emerald City Comic Con, the VR Experience (which he got to try), and then talk about WoBs from there. Brandon, however, had a different plan, and instead posting INSANE things on Reddit that we just had to discuss. We start with discussing the VR Experience, then we talk about, you guessed it, Patji as we descend into madness from Brandon's Reddit post. We hurt our brains, do some sweet theorizing, then we move into some Emerald City Comic Con Words of Brandon. That's fun and all and then we wrapped it up. But then, Brandon continued to post on Reddit right as we ended our recording session, so we then add a good thirty more minutes of more Patji and Shard stuff. Watch us go to the brink of madness and back this time on Shardcast. Today it's just Eric (Chaos) and Ben (Overlord Jebus). We were going to have Ian but the Stormfather refused to allow that this time. We will continue discussing ECCC Words of Brandon and the most recent signing next time. Also upcoming is White Sand vol. 2 and other fun topics as well!
  14. Today on Shardcast, we are talking about various "hacks" and other weirdness in cosmere magics: Savantism, Resonances, and Compounding. Here we will talk about what those are, talk about the weirdness with WoBs about Wax, theories on Resonances, and explain Compounding, because that always seems to go wrong. We also have a new segment: Who's That Cosmere Character! If you have a character along with five clues for them, send it to [email protected] We will eventually get them on the show! But, you know, maybe make them harder than the ones we used here, because it didn't go super flawlessly for Ben here. We have Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), and Ben (Overlord Jebus) who is in America this time! See you next week for some discussion on the VR experience, Patji, and Emerald City Comic Con. Table of contents: News - Update on the Secret Project (00:1:28), Main Topic (00:04:50), Who's That Cosmere Character (01:00:00)
  15. We're back with more Oathbringer discussion, and this time, we have a spicy topic: Sja-anat and Voidbinding. There's obviously heavy Oathbringer spoilers here (with some minor discussion from Hero of Ages), so be warned. We're here to talk about the Unmade, corrupted spren, Voidbinding, and more--though maybe we end up confusing ourselves more than anything. We record these in advance, so we talk about the "news" of the new Secret Project. Brandon recently said that it is not cosmere, so our speculation is all worthless. But, I thought some Hemalurgy puns (nailed it) were funny, so I kept that in. Today we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), David (Windrunner), and Alyx (FeatherWriter). Also starring in today's episode is my inconsistent pronounciation of Sja-anat, so I'm sure none of you will be triggered by that, right? Right?
  16. We're back, and this week we're reading White Sand Volume 1, the graphic novel, in anticipation for Volume 2 which comes out February 20th. We discuss everything that happened, our feelings on the transition to a graphic novel and its quality, analysis of the magic (as you no doubt expect), and what we expect after the three volumes of the graphic novel are finished. Let's talk about spoilers. There will be discussion of the unpublished, White Sand prose version, but we don't talk about big plot points and we stay focused on Volume 1's stuff. But the prose version colors our impression of Taldain, and it's important we talk about how and why that is. Today we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), and David (Windrunner). Next week we will have a Very Special Episode, so stay tuned.
  17. So, I had my pizza, my drink, and my laptop. perfect combination. I was gonna listen to some Shardcast, and enjoy a relaxing afternoon. But wait. Sharcast won't play?!? Yeah, when I pressed the play button, nothing happened. I tried going to the soundcloud site to listen to it as well. It just said that it "could not be played at this time, please try again later" Is this just me, or? EDIT: Nevermind, I think this was just me. Please ignore this post lol
  18. This is it. We finally finished talking about the Oathbringer Tour Words of Brandon. We start with getting on a high horse on effective discourse, and then we talk about Urithiru being a spaceship, and of course, much more. We hope you've enjoyed these, but we are sure excited to do some new stuff too. This week we have Kerry (KChan), Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), and David (Windrunner). See you next week for some non-WoB stuff!
  19. This week we are continuing our adventure through the Oathbringer Tour Words of Brandon, and Ian and I fight again on the interpretation of intent. We got our Shardblades out; it was an epic duel! Tune in now. (Okay, it wasn't that spectacular, but hopefully it was entertaining!) Kerry returns as the one true host, and joining her is Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), and David (Windrunner). We also have a special guest: Kerry's phone, which went off a few times. We're all very professional. There will be one more of these next week, and it's also over an hour long too.
  20. This week, we are delving into the Words of Brandon from the Oathbringer tour (and Brandon's two holiday signings in Utah). There's so much to talk about, especially from the London signing, so we brought Ben--Overlord Jebus--to help us analyze this stuff. There's so much to talk about though that we recorded three episodes worth of content for the Oathbringer tour, and they are meaty ones. Our goal, of course, is to inform you about cool facts as well as analyze, so we hope you like it. Full spoilers for all the cosmere in this episode. We're doing everything! As always, you can go to Arcanum for all your quote needs. If you'd like to help transcribe, you can! Check out our forum and Discord for information on that. Our cast today is Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), David (Windrunner), and Ben (Overlord Jebus). Unfortunately David and Ben's audio was quite poor so I had to use our Skype audio for this, which is of worse quality. I tried to get the volume levels correct and it isn't perfect, so... I know. We'll see you next week for way more quotes. There will be a third installment, too, but we might split that one up with another episode so you don't get bored.
  21. This week on Shardcast we talk about Moash, and the controversy revolving around him in Oathbringer. We analyze his role in Oathbringer, our thoughts, and more. Oh we also talk about Elhokar. No reason... We also make some tangents about Star Wars and Hoid. Of course there are big Oathbringer spoilers here! Our cast today is Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), Matt (Comatose), and Alyx (FeatherWriter). I mostly was able to remove Alyx's microphone whir, and we are saying the word "like" less. Professionalism! Here's a link to at least an image of the Dan Wells newsletter:
  22. Welcome to Shardcast, and Happy New Year! We are starting this year with a podcast that's way too long, but there's much to talk about. We're talking about Dalinar visiting the Valley and the Nightwatcher, and all that stuff. Obviously, there are Oathbringer spoilers here. We talk about the Old Magic, the age of the Old Magic, and of course, the Stormfather's love of the Oxford comma. (I'm only somewhat kidding.) I'm Eric, and I'm joined today with Ian (WeiryWriter), and Matt (Comatose)--who you can hear actually rifling through pages of his physical Oathbringer copy. What a weirdo. (Just kidding.) Apologies on this podcast coming a bit late this week. I was traveling and this took quite some time to edit! See you next week.
  23. Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year's. We hope you're enjoying your holidays, so we thought we would bring you holiday cheer by talking about how a bunch of knights betrayed their oaths. Yup, the Recreance is very cheery. Note in this podcast has Oathbringer spoilers! Today we have Kerry (KChan), Ian (WeiryWriter), and Eric (Chaos). I also did a different audio editing style on this one, which should hopefully fix volume issues. It did distort Kerry at one point, though. Also, our True Desolation--the war against us saying the word "like"--is not going the best, but it's noted and we are working on it. Lastly, what things would you like us to discuss in the next year? I'm always terrified we will run out of content. Though we can't promise when or if we'd get to your idea, please let us know below!
  24. This week, Brandon's yearly update on all his projects, State of the Sanderson, came out. It always comes out on the 19th, which his birthday, and we thought we'd do a quick episode talking about the updates, changes, and analyzing all the things in it. We thought it'd be a short episode, so naturally it is 40 minutes instead. Due to the holidays, it is just Ian (WeiryWriter) and Eric (Chaos). Next week we'll have a big podcast on the Recreance to close out 2017.
  25. Happy Koloss Head-Munching Day everyone! For those of you that don't know, this is a bit of an inside-joke for the fandom. Years ago Brandon was asked if there were any holidays on Scadrial, to which he jokingly replied "Koloss Head-Munching Day" (a day the koloss celebrate by having a nice head to eat). It eventually became conflated with Brandon's birthday (so yes, you should all go wish him a happy birthday) If you've been around for a few years, you might also know Koloss Head-Munching Day as the time of the year where Brandon posts his annual State of the Sanderson where he recounts what he's worked on in the past year, his upcoming projects, the status of various anticipated sequels, and potential media adaptations. Well it's here, go check it out. In other news, Eric (@Chaos) and I (@WeiryWriter) were invited to guest on the Dragons, Sexy Robots, and Adventures: A Nerd Manual podcast where we talked about Oathbringer. We had a great time working with them, and I think the episode turned out really well. Give it a listen here, and while you're at it check out some of their other episodes as well!
