The Smidgling and Kirt welcome yet another guest host to the podcast, Rick from Another Book Blog, to discuss King Leary. What do we talk about? What don’t we talk about? The dearth of male book bloggers. Hockey. Humour. Canadian mythology. Fantasy quests. Unreliable narrators. And, Tania uses the word “turd” repeatedly. This episode is a little longer than usual but it is worth the time.
We also announce that our next pick for fantasy month is The Girls Who Saw Everything by Sean Dixon. Look for that podcast on September 8th.
