Melissa Diaz and Clay Foreman boldly go where no nerds have gone before in this deep dive into Terry Pratchett's Discworld Universe and beyond
- A casual discussion that begins with a personal chat, then talk of the book or books chosen for the episode
- The first episode spends a lot of time on food, Clay’s family history and trashing the idea of reading in general and libraries in particular, among other things. This probably gives you a good idea of the tone.
- The second episode gets more or less straight into discussion of Terry Pratchett's Hogfather, but this seems to be because the recording of the earlier discussion was lost.
- Melissa Diaz - a stand-up comedian based in the Bronx, New York; not clear if she's read Discworld before
- Clay Foreman - a French Canadian from Nova Scotia; an existing Discworld fan, who is choosing which books they read
