Publisher Description

Join three nerds as we do a book club style read-through of Sir Terry Pratchett's Discworld novels and related works, in publication order. We've got a variety of voices and takes, and will occasionally have special guests to discuss key points in the Discworld series.

Previous description

The Compleat Discography is a chronological read-through podcast of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld books. Aaron and Ana (and guests) lead Justen through a first read-through of the Discworld series. Here's the catch: While Ana and Aaron have read 40 books, they haven't read the last one.

Also, sometimes we talk about other books and put them on here.

  1. Under the name of sister podcast The Babylon Podject
  2. Sort by this column to get episodes in the Discworld publication order. Generally we leave this blank for non-Discworld books (and episodes about other topics), but we've added numbers with an "LT" prefix so the Locked Tomb episodes can be sorted together.
  3. 3.0 3.1 3.2 These episodes were referred to as "The Compleat Thanography", as they are a digression to talk about the Locked Tomb series.
  4. Aaron's kid and a big wee hag in her own right.
  5. Justen made another mistake.
  6. Best known as creator of the Midnight Society Twitter account.
