Publisher Description

Reading, reviewing and objectively ranking all 41 novels in Terry Pratchett's Discworld series, chronologically. Updates monthly.

Further Information

Format

  • After each episode, the Disc Coverers Twitter account posts the updated rankings, as established in the show. See below for the latest summary.

Trivia

  • Since episode three, Iris usually describes the show in the intro as "the only podcast online that reads, reviews and ranks[1] all 41 of Terry Pratchett's Discworld series of novels". Assessing the accuracy of that statement is an exercise left for the reader.
