Further Information


  • Despite the title, this podcast doesn't focus on Frank Herbert's Dune books, but instead on reading intimidatingly long fantasy series.
  • The first season discusses Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time, while the current second season alternates between The Wheel of Time and the Discworld books.
  • The Wheel of Time books usually get multiple episodes; so far Pratchett's books are each covered in a single episode.
  • Both seasons include occasional "side quest" episodes about other books, usually standalone novels.


  • Since Wyrd Sisters, Discworld and other Pratchett-related episodes feature Anna as the guest.
  • Had a long hiatus of nearly a year between March 2022 and February 2023, but only produced one episode before going dormant again.

  1. The first Discworld-themed episode was listed as season 2 episode 1, and the last episode of the first season was episode 31, so we've used those as a baseline, trying to identify and ignore bonus episodes for the purposes of counting.
