Rand leads an army into battle with the Seanchan. Things start

We're reading the Wheel of Time series of fantasy novels by Robert Jordan! We read them when we were younger, but now we are wiser.
Why? Because they're so much fun! Adventure, magic, battles, politics, treachery, horses, braid-pulling... these books are top flight entertainment. They're also, as the kids say these days, "problematic". We'll dig into it as we go.
We read about 5 chapters every episode, and we recap the events of the story, so you don't have to read along unless you want to. Join us!
