We're reading the Wheel of Time series of fantasy novels by Robert Jordan!

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.

Blood and ashes! We begin our odyssey with the first book of the series: The Eye of the World. We'll get our first taste of the sharp characterization and epic scale that makes these books so much fun to read.

We'll also dig in to the question that drives this whole series: is Bran al'Vere a cannibal?

Note to the wary: this episode has a few SPOILERS for the rest of the books. We got carried away, but we will do better at avoiding spoilers in future episodes.

Your hosts are Jeff Lake (@jeff_lake), Micah Sparkman, and Alice Sullivan.
