Anomaly Podcast (discworld)
Fun but deep episodes on Sci-fi / Fantasy and geek culture. Covering Star Trek, Star Wars, and other sci-fi fantasy TV, book, and movies. In addition to the episodes available here, you'll find many, many more at anomalypodcast.com.

Over four years of podcasting together, and I finally got KC to read a Discworld book - in fact, it was kind of her idea!  After a quick catchup on life, we give a general introduction to the Discworld and then a short summary of Guards! Guards! (Discworld #8, Watch #1), before sounding our spoiler alert and diving a little deeper.

We talk about Pratchett's writing style (including the undercurrent of anger that is often noted by readers), dialogue, and humor; gender representation in the Watch; our favorite characters, scenes, and quotes; and the sticky subject of cover art.  KC sprinkles in some of her dream casting for a non-existent film adaptation, I share some thoughts about cosplaying a character from a book, we discuss the possible TV series adaptation, and we read part of a review from Anomaly staffer Michele.
