Today on our eternal string of Words of Brandon episodes, we are continuing to talk about what happened from Dragonsteel 2023. And in this case we learn about the GRAND APPARATUS and a lot of WoBs about Hoid's dating life. Also, there's a legitimately serious Stick discussion. Yes, really.
Oh my goodness, everyone. We have SO many Words of Brandon episodes ahead of you. We're going out of order, with the Dragonsteel 2023 Spoiler Q&A! And sorry Lift-dragon enjoyers, that theory is dead! We also talk about a surprising amount of Warbreaker stuff, Zane, Mistborn: Birthright, and Alyx solves Silverlight. Some of those are even vaguely relevant to what we are talking about and not just nonsense.
It's time for a Mistborn Shardcast! We have learned a lot of new stuff of Hemalurgy in The Lost Metal, so let's talk in extensive detail about those two chapters, and then talk about Hemalurgy implications for the future!
Brandon read an absolutely insane interlude for Stormlight 5 (now officially Wind and Truth) at Dragonsteel 2023, and so it's only fitting that we have our actually most unhinged Shardcast ever on it. This episode goes places, everyone. Are they insane tangents? Most of them... I hope you enjoy listening to this as much as I had in editing it!
State of the Sanderson for 2023 is out, and so let's do a Shardcast stream discussing it! Featuring a lot of complaining about White Sand. We'll be doing this at a later timeslot than our usual streams, at 3pm Pacific / 6pm Eastern!
So much happened in The Sunlit Man, that... well, we needed a second lore episodes discussing all of it. And here it is! In this one, we talk about the what's going on with Aux, how you get from Threnody to Canticle, and how some of Canticle's crazy invested geography really works. Also, we start out with a round of shots, so you know it's all going to go downhill from there.
So much happened in The Sunlit Man, that we recorded two lore episodes discussing all of it, and honestly, we probably could have done more. In this one, we talk about the Charred, sunhearts, Nomad's abilities, and the Torment. But really, this episode is maybe the most off-the-rails and unhinged we have ever been, while also being the most in-depth lore-wise ever. Get your bingo cards. We open with "Can the Charred talk?" and it goes from there.
It's time for another manic episode talking about our interview with Brandon back in July. I'm sure nothing interesting happens in this one. It's not like Brandon would ramble about... just everything about cosmere dragons in this one, right? Well, we thought wrong.
The final Brandon Sanderson Secret Project, The Sunlit Man, is out! In this episode of Shardcast, we talk about our thoughts on the book some, but we just can't help ourselves getting into the implications of it all. And this was us trying to not get into "the lore," uh oh!
Today on Shardcast, we start talking about the Words of Brandon from our interview with Brandon in July. We get through a record low amount of WoBs, but we discuss Mistborn: Ghostbloods and Yumi questions. It's also a completely unhinged episode. Enjoy!
Brandon has read previews from book 5 of The Stormlight Archive, called Knights of Wind and Truth for now, at various occasions. We delve into them and discuss what this might mean for the book and the greater Cosmere!
Welcome to a bonkers, off-the-rails Shardcast. We're talking Tress and Yumi. We're talking Midnight Essence and the nightmares. We're talking about smoke. Black smoke! Yes, that's what we are doing for over two hours. Can you guess where we go in this episode and how many bizarre terms we mention? Well... you'll find out!
Brandon's back on Shardcast! In this episode we discuss all sorts of spoiler questions from The Lost Metal, Tress of the Emerald Sea, and Yumi and the Nightmare Painter, and other cosmere questions. Brandon is awesome as always and we really thank him for his time here! Enjoy, there are some very interesting new things here, like a title for Era 3 and... more dragons than you would expect.
The Frugal Wizard's Handbook for Surviving Medieval England (Secret Project 2) is now out to everyone in bookstores (as of June 27th), so with that and because of some scheduling issues in April, we thought we'd do it now! What did we think about the noncosmere Secret Project? Stay tuned to find out!
In this very special episode of Shardcast, we interview Isaac Stewart, VP of Creative Development at Dragonsteel! We talk about all the projects he has been or is currently working on, including his very own Cosmere novel!
On today's episode, we are finally finishing up WoBs, except for the Tress stream from yesterday. We talk about Navani's past, Jasnah and Hoid, storms blowing leeward, intense ship names discussion (I didn't expect this today!), and cosmere hell.
It's time for more Words of Brandon from Dragonsteel, and we start on December's spoiler stream! This one is even more unhinged and philosophical than the last one. We talk about brontosauruses (brontosauri?), bugs, bones, piles of cash, and of course, what is a soul, anyway?
It's been ages since we've done Words of Brandon, and boy there's a ton to catch up on. We start with some miscellaneous events, then get to Dragonsteel 2022 ones. Expect two more WoB episodes as well! This episode is peak unhinged Shardcast, and I love it.
The White Sand Omnibus is here, and so it's time for another episode of Shardcast where we go into extensive detail on things. There's character stuff, lore stuff, talking about the Indiegogo failure, as well as astrophysics and complex cosmere stuff. Oh, and infesting sand! This is a very weird and extremely nerdy episode, even for us.
It's time we talk about aethers, the last big cosmere magic system! Or is this actually an MCU podcast? A Pinnochio podcast? Maybe it's an ecology and physics podcast. Surprise, it's red spikes all the way down. This episode is both very on the rails and also totally not.
