Cytonic, the third Skyward novel, is out now, and now we are discussing everything in this episode of Shardcast! We start with some non-spoilery thoughts, and then we get deep into the weeds on what we think as well as talk about some lore topics too. What did you think of Cytonic? Put your comments below!This episode has Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry),…
 
There's still so many Stormlight topics left to do (and such little time) but it's time to do a deep dive about Jasnah! We delve into her philosophy and a certain lesson, her "lunacy," and what happened with her in Rhythm of War! This episode we have Eric (Chaos), Alyx (Feather), Ian (Weiry), Jessie (Lady Lameness), Evgeni (Argent), and Shannon (Gr…
 
It feels like it's been ages since we've been done an extremely pedantic mechanics episode, and we reread The Bands of Mourning, so it's finally time to do one we've wanted to do for ages: what the hell is going on with the Southerner medallions? We talk about what we know, what we don't know (which is most things), as well as all the other crazy m…
 
ReDawn, the second of the Skyward Flight novellas came out on October 26th, and so we're here with another bonus Shardcast doing our reactions! It's not very "mini" of a mini-episode, but I guess under two hours is mini for us. We have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Evgeni (Argent), Jessie (LadyLameness), and Marvin (Paleo)!Thumbnail art is the ReDawn …
 
It's October, the spoopy season, so let's do an episode on Brandon's use of horror in his works! This one has spoilers for uh basically every Brandon's works. We go into tons of different horror types and more, and explore how Brandon uses these elements in his books. This episode, we have Ian (Weiry) hosting, along with Evgeni (Argent), Matt (Coma…
 
We love Brandon Sanderson here; that's why we've done over a hundred and fifty of these Shardcasts. But you know, we have some beefs too. We did a Cosmere Beefs episode long ago in 2018, and so it's time for some new (and updated) beefs for 2021, with some of our newer cast members as well! We have some funny beefs along with some serious ones too,…
 
Sunreach, the first of the Skyward Flight novellas, came out last week, and so here's a bonus, "shorter" Shardcast on us discussing this novella! Turns out it's pretty great.

Can you believe that we've never done an actual episode on Kaladin? He's kind of a big deal, and he did a lot in Rhythm of War, so let's get into it. We also, of course, talk about depression and mental illness as well.This episode we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), David (Windrunner), Ben (Overlord Jebus), and Jessie (Lady Lameness)!Thumbnail art …
 
We got a new Brandon Sanderson book this year already, and it is Lux! It is an Audible original set in the Reckoners universe, and it's time for us to talk about it. Overall we liked it, but we obviously get into the weeds, because it's Shardcast. Spoilers for the original Reckoners trilogy (Steelheart, Firefight, and Calamity) here, but if you hav…
 
Here's our second Word of Brandon episode from JordanCon 2021! Here lay answers to critical questions like, if a tree falls in the Forests of Hell and no one is around to hear it, do the shades still get angry? And watch many questions from the general Q&A where people try to talk their away around spoilers in hilarious ways, like about a certain S…
 
Oh boy everyone, we have some spice for you today! At JordanCon we had both a reading from the Lost Metal (Wax and Wayne 4), which was its prologue, as well as one of the craziest Words of Brandon: Taln didn't break! Holy crap. Oh, and Marvin's meme game is on point this episode. This week we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Evgeni (Argent), Jessie …
 
We are extremely fortunate to have the amazing booktuber Merphy Napier (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7FW6FYqPLeQIXMSulBfOLw/) on the show today! She just finished The Bands of Mourning for the first time, and so we thought hey, let's talk about Mistborn Era 2! What book is everyone's favorite, favorite characters, and more! The rest of us rere…
 
In this episode of Shardcast, we go through the very light, chill topic of Shallan's past. Oh boy, there is so much to talk about, and so much more in Rhythm of War to ruminate on.

Happy Pride Month everyone! This episode of Shardcast, we get very gay. We're talking about Queerness in the Cosmere, so we're talking about queer representation, examples, how Brandon has evolved over time and is putting in more representation. We also have some critiques and hopes for the future. So if you want to see the cosmere from a queer len…
 
Today on Shardcast, we talk about an extremely nice, totally sane character: Ishar! He definitely did not have his hand in a lot of stuff, or cause many problems. And he certainly did nothing disturbing in Rhythm of War! Also, news, and limmericks in Who's That Cosmere Character!This episode we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Evgeni (Argent), Grace…
 
Last time we talked about Moash in a meta sense, but let's dig a bit more into Moash, who now holds the title of He Who Quiets. But, of course, we also need to talk about Grace's villain crush, who used to hold that same title: El!This episode we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Alyx (Feather), and Grace (thegatorgirl)! Thank you to Alyx for editing…
 
This week on Shardcast, we're talking about everyone's favorite character: Moash. Has any other character inspired such emotion throughout the fandom as that wayward-est member of Bridge Four? We're taking a deep dive into Moash's character, with plenty of hot takes on what role he serves in the narrative, where we think he might go after Rhythm of…
 
Let's catch up on some Words of Brandon!

Last time, we talked about the Rhythm of War Part One epigraphs and the fabrials details there. This time we are going deep into the new things we've learned in Dawnshard and Rhythm of War, and boy. There is a lot. We get solidly into the weeds here on mechanics, aluminum, and the ancient fabrials.We have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Evgeni (Argent),…
 
Let's talk about fabrials! We sure learned a bunch about them in Rhythm of War, that's for sure. This is the first of two episodes on fabrials. In this one we're going through the Part One epigraphs, which really did have a ton of fabrial stuff. We'll continue this next time, but do note Shardcast will be back to every other week after this one.We …
