All the way from the Land of Madmen, we are lucky enough to get another guest appearance of our very own Egwene, aka Bambi the Captain-General of the Discord Green Ajah! Seth also takes time at the beginning of the episode to read off new Patreon names, and extends a massive “thank-you” to all the podcast supporters that are making the podcasting d…
 
Seth invites Joe from the Talk'aran'rhiod showcast back to talk about their journeys finding WoT fans over the years, their feelings around book spoilers vs show speculation, and the nuances between LTT vs Rand al’Thor. Alanna’s emotions are bouncing around as wildly as Rand’s geographic position. A Whitecloak assassination attempt adds to The List…
 
She comes! She comes! The M’Hael of SpoilerCon, partner to Ogier, our very own Talyre herself! (Have you forgotten the Black Ajah?) Talyre joins Seth to discuss the importance of this chapter to both her teenage-self, and to her present self. Egwene has come far from the girl who left the Two Rivers, taking agency to explore Aiel culture as well as…
 
Jackson returns to ask tough questions such as “is a bittern actually a cittern, an RJ invention, or just a typo?” Egwene is really feeling herself as an Aiel in general, and as an apprentice Wise One in particular. Elida’s embassy arrives, full of confidence that they will bring Rand back one way or another. This means Gawyn is also back, creeping…
 
Seth welcomes new guest Jackson to discuss a chapter from the book that was the latest to be published when they both found the series, and they happily rehash Who Killed Asmodean. What message is being sent between Sammael and Graendal? Do either of them even know? Seth sure doesn’t! Sammael is a puzzling enigma with a plethora of goodies from a s…
 
Heading south... to Tear, and to hell in a handbasket. RJ uses even the colors of pebbles to foreshadow this epic fantasy, and still manages to keep some of the Aes Sedai plots murky! Mat gets some fan-love and the family of the Band of the Red Hand coalesces as Chel Vanin is introduced, Talmanes is revealed in a new light, and Olver reinserts hims…
 
My Loial…. MY LOIAL! My Loial…. MY LOIAL! My Loial…. MY LOIAL! Rand exerts his ta’veren nature to drag three Ogier into Shadar Logoth, opening the door for multiple significant moments that resonate throughout the remainder of the series. WoTSpoilers is a twice weekly book-club.  You can join the conversations that make the podcast on Discord. Than…
 
Pre-Con jitters lead to significant tangents in this one. Fortunately, we have rambling Ogier to overshadow us and give us tantalizing exposition via history lessons of the larger world. Rand respects Ogier more than any human culture, but also doesn’t mind rushing them into decisions that they might refuse if given time to consider. It takes a vil…
 
Seth can’t keep the names straight, but Aradia is here to keep him on track. Rand is hangry, LTT is having nightmares, and we debate how different Tigrane and Elayne really are. There are many noble non-entities, few notable Aiel personalities, and many candidates for The One Who Is No Longer. Aftershow includes the nuances of Imperial Pale Ales vs…
 
Seth and Aradia are joined by Joe and Tom from Talk’aran’rhiod showcast to discuss the non-canon short-story Fire In The Ways by Brandon Sanderson during SpoilerCon2020. Fox and Raven Media is a community that uses podcasting to reread our favorite books with Spoilers in mind. Join the WoT Spoilers community on our primary Discord server. Stay conn…
 
Seth and Travis welcome first-time guest Alex R. London to discuss the boxiness of Cairhien, the boxes Rand is already in, the boxes he will be in, and why he wishes he could be alone in his own head for a minute. While this episode was recorded, the Pacific-Northwesters can also taste wildfire smoke in addition to the quarantine-enforced solitude.…
 
The Wheel of Time and the wheel of a man’s life turn alike without pity or mercy. It would be easier to have a mad voice in your head if it made sense, wouldn’t it? The nihilism gets pretty strong. What is the difference between a diadem and a tiara? More information about Sharra leads to more speculation about Forsaken plots, and alternative plotl…

The episode starts with puns, be warned. Piles of hints dig into our brains, while Egwene ignores most of what is going on in hers. The Pattern is headdesking so much with all of these prophecy dreams that our characters don’t take seriously. Aradia annotates the book, but has no idea where any of the WoT rivers are. We awkwardly discuss the mechan…
 
Seth is joined by a new guest, SuperSkyLake from the Discord server! They nerd out on audio production in addition to the vagueness of prophecies. Egwene explores the space between dreams, considers who all is sneaking around in Tel’aran’rhiod with her, and has a fateful encounter with Gawyn that raises questions (and eyebrows). Salidar wakes up to…
 
Blood and bloody buttered onions, SpoilerCon is really soon! Check out the schedule at www.spoilercon.org/schedule. This episode was published on the 13th anniversary of Robert Jordan’s death, and we appreciate that he wrote never-ending fractals of details into his world-building. That’s part of why we keep coming back for more and more rereads! T…
 
Seth and Travis wait anxiously with Nyneave and Elayne in Salidar, as the little Hall stalls for time with the Tower emissary, as they wait for “the biddable child” to arrive. Travis points out that if you cut a hole in a net, you have fewer holes in the net. Thanks, we hate it. The Spider crawls inside Nyneave’s head and disturbs her equilibrium. …
 
Seth and Aradia watch as Verin and Alanna deal with the fallout of Alanna’s impulsive non-consensual bonding, and contemplate if the tradeoffs that she forced on Rand justify her actions. We get a rare and information-rich Verin POV, including a rare instance of Verin being wrong about something! Aradia grumbles about the trope of people fainting f…
 
Seth and Travis discuss an infamous, dark, and complicated moment in Rand’s journey, when Alanna becomes much more than just another Aes Sedai. The chapter accelerates really quickly, and by the end you see hints of Darth Rand coming through. Content warning for discussions of assault. Death is lighter than a feather, duty is heavier than a mountai…
 
WoTSpoilers returns to regular content! It is not the beginning, but it is A beginning. Seth unveils the new co-host plan, re-introduces Aradia, teases SpoilerCon, and tackles his first read-in. Robert Jordan was a master of anticipation and red herrings, particularly in this book. In Amador, Abdel Omerna gets his news from the Randland equivalent …
