  • Excellent, fun and accessible

    This is my new favourite podcast - partly because I did a literature degree and grew up reading Discworld novels, but more because Josh and Alice have a great dynamic, make pretty heavy intellectual topics (postmodernism, the history of witchcraft, etc) fun and accessible.

  • Not for Me

    This is a great podcast if you want long rants on Lord of the Rings and woke culture. Unfortunately, I wanted to listen to people discuss Pratchett. I could go on but I won't. I'll just say it's bad. It's trying to justify every joke by today's standards of what is deemed appropriate bad. It's Pratchett meant this (and even went so far as to say in multiple interviews he meant this and nothing else) but let's pretend he meant this instead so the book fits in-line with woke culture bad.
