Is Eric a mathematician? The mixing up of Veil and Weyl sounded like someone who's worried about Weil vs. Weyl a lot before.

I have a Master's in math and I do teach math at a community college, but no, this is just me completely flubbing pronunciation because I was pretty stressed, haha.

The part about Ghostbloods and Survivorism is really interesting, never thought about those connections before.

The only question I have about Rhythm of War:

Spoiler

Did you foresee all the nicknames for the new Odium. Specifically, could you have ever seen TOD coming?

I'm going to keep on believing there was at least some subconscious influence if you don't mind (I've actually made that exact same mispronunciation multiple times for the math reason).

I never noticed it either. I did go “hey, these guys are the Mistborn crew! Is Kelsier their boss?” back in 2014 though... Still have no idea what exactly made me go there.

I notice that the exact wording of that WoB about the Thrill's current incarceration does not specify whether it is in the Physical Realm or the Cognitive.  Indeed, there is an argument to be made that if the Thrill were imprisoned anywhere in the Physical Realm, it would be very easily seen from the Cognitive.

1.45 Brandon thought that he may have mentioned in ROW that one of the character was a sliver ? Any guess who is that character ?

Yeah, I was on the "Shades are ghosts and they go crazy when they see blood" train of thought. I thought the Ghostbloods had a lot of Ambition because their home planet was cascaded with that shards investiture. 

Even after I found out Kelsier was running it I just thought "well he is a huge jerk so of course his organization is full of jerks."

My thoughts were that if they dropped it deep in the ocean in the physical realm then it is buried deep in hard to cut stone in the cognitive realm. Making it harder to reach in both places.

That was the answer for "who s that cosmere character" game but It seems he meant someone else otherwise he would have found the answer. Ian seems really surprised when he mentioned that

To be honest those words you state have not really come up for me, so I highly doubt it :)

I was totally calling the wtcc as the Stormfather. That was great. Brandon seemed kind of like he anticipated the answer to be something like that. 

This was great! I really liked this episode, and especially because Brandon was on it!

He has not been. We did an interview with him in 2010, though.
