Shardcast: The Lost Metal Predictions

It's time for an episode we recorded ages ago, long before we even got the blurb for this book: Lost Metal Predictions! The final Wax and Wayne book is finally coming November. Here are our predictions and hopes for the book! Also, so so many mechanical tangents. What can we say, we are excited to talk Mistborn and the mysteries on Scadrial.

Today we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), David (Windrunner), Rosemary (Kaymyth), and Matt (Comatose)!

We have a cover for The Lost Metal now! Here's the US edition, which we put in the thumbnail:

We referenced two older episodes in this one:
Southern Scadrians -
Atium and the Atium Retcon (where we discuss the Preservation switching business) -

I had to laugh listening to you talk about atium switching when just shortly after you recorded this Brandon said that Era 1 Atium was an Atium-electrum alloy and all the atium mistings were really electrum mistings.

Good episode altogether I have to say you did a really good job.
