SpanReads: The Final Empire - Recap & Reactions


Welcome to SpanReads: not your typical rereads podcast. Unlike the traditional rereads style, we won’t be going through each book chapter by chapter, but instead looking at different themes and the placement of the books within the wider cosmere. Each book on SpanReads will bring you four episodes: the first three, Reactions and Retrospectives, Character Relationships, and Magic System use in the story, will be spoilers for that book and prior books in the series, then we’ll cap things off with a full spoiler, cosmere episode. We are starting with Mistborn: The Final Empire, and this episode we're talking about our recap and reactions!

This week we have Jessie (Lady Lameness), Mi'chelle (firstRainbowRose), Ian (Weiry), Rosemary (Kaymyth), Matt (Comatose), and Kadie (Aon Ene).

SpanReads is a weekly series, coming every Wednesday! Check out our 2022 schedule here: https://www.17thshard.com/news/features/were-starting-a-reread-podcast-may-4th-starting-with-mistborn-1-r819/

We will also be posting SpanReads a few days early on our Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/17thshard

Nice first episode! Only thing might need tweaking was the synopsis length. I liked it and the jokes were great, but it might need to be broken down into more chunks in some way? It was a tad long and I think I needed some breaks. Maybe half the book discuss, then second half discuss? It was hard for me to pay attention to the synopsis for so long and something to break up the book might help (especially when you get to longer books)

I condensed them as much as I could while still covering the plot. xD

But yeah, length is an issue, and while we've already recorded all of Mistborn Era 1, Era 2, and SH, we do have some ideas to put into play for when we get into Stormlight. (We'll start putting chapters into future episodes so people can skip if they want.)

Stormlight way too long for recaps. Must sum up.

Just want to make it clear I think you did a good job! I just thought I would add my two sense about maybe adding is a discussion break in the middle of the plot synopsis. I actually really liked and appreciated  the thorough recap, I just lost stamina haha

It's a good idea in theory, but difficult to put into practice due to several factors. Still, we're putting in chapter skips, so that'll make it easier for watchers to bounce around as they like.
