59: Oathbringer – with Special Guests from the “Shardcast” Podcast

Oathbringer is the third installment in Brandon Sanderson’s Stormlight Archive series. Claire White and Kyle Willoughby have been waiting to talk about this book since they started DSRA, and it’s finally arrived!! To celebrate they are joined by Ian McNatt and Eric Lake from 17thShard.com and Shardcast, the official Brandon Sanderson fansite and its podcast. Kyle leads off by discussing Japanese Kami and their similarities to the “spren” in the book. Claire then goes through Sanderson’s career, from his early rejections to being chosen to finish Robert Jordan’s ‘Wheel of Time’ series. Eric and Ian break down the Cosmere (the universe Sanderson created) and how his other works/series fit into it. The show concludes with everyone’s thoughts on the books, their favorite characters and which Sanderson work they recommend starting with.
