I began reading the wheel of Time series in December 2021. Falling in love with the series immediately, I began talking to a friend who I also knew was reading the series. He told me about this podcast and I began listening during my reading of book four. Since then I’ve listened to almost every...Read full review »

Dani and Brett are so much fun. My daughter and I quote Dani’s funny statements all the time (eg: “…and Loial’s in love with a rock.”). They are so relatable. Dani says what we’re all thinking, and Brett is great at explaining all the pieces I’ve glazed over. Thank you for making this...Read full review »

Great Wheel of Time first time reader pod. And as an extra you can learn a lot about freezing and the winter from the Canadiens ;)

Love the podcast, first time reader here and I tried a few other WOT pods, but this one felt most like me. It’s like a personal book club where I get to follow each chapter with the latest podcast episode.
Colieo8888 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/13/22
I began reading because the show brought the series to my attention. I got through book 7 struggling to remember which characters were where. I stumbled upon The Wheel Weaves and started the series over, switching between the book chapters and the podcast. Dani and Brett are so fun to listen to!...Read full review »

I hv read the entire series 2 times. And even with that just hearing a different perspective esp given the first time reader approach is so much fun. Must say Brett is impressively contained and self restrained. Very well done. I would be giving away the story left right and centre. Its like I...Read full review »

I read the Conan books in the 80’s and followed RJ into WOT. I’ve read the series through a couple times, and each of the first few several more. I’m enjoying Dani and Brett’s discussion as much as any read through. I’m shocked by how much I missed while reading! Great job with this, and...Read full review »

I love the dynamics between Dani and Brett, it is so much fun to listen! I have read the first six books but paused reading to catch up with the podcasts so I can read the chapters and listen to the corresponding episodes. Really excited!
Naoommii via Apple Podcasts · Netherlands · 09/06/22
I’ve been trying to find a non-spoiler book focused podcast for Wheel of Time, and Dani and Brett are perfect! So many podcasts focus on the new show and comparisons, instead of just focusing on what Robert Jordan is trying to convey. I love their analysis, especially because I feel just like...Read full review »

I love hearing Dani’s thinking as she goes through the books. Brett has the patience of a saint as he tries not to spoil anything and challenge her ideas. I don’t have the time to deal with discord or the money to get onto patreon but maybe I will when I get caught up to where they are. I’ve read...Read full review »

This podcast brought me back to the books in a big way! I gave up on the series twenty years ago in the middle of Book 9. Now this podcast has helped reintroduce me to the stories, and I’m rereading along with the podcast. It’s amazing. The two hosts are a great team with one first time...Read full review »

I love the dynamic of Dani and Brett. I enjoy the energy and the delving into the meanings of things. I am thoroughly enjoying this podcast and I’m glad I found it. Now that I’m caught up, it will be added to my weekly listening list. Keep it up!
I don't pay for free apps. via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/05/22
As I was about to do my 1st re-Read of WOT, I came across this podcast, which I had read great things about online, and I cannot stress enough how amazing and entertaining it is. Dani, a first time reader, always has the most hilarious takes and theories on almost every element of the series, and...Read full review »
CBacard via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/30/22
I have been reading the series since 1990. Yes I’m that old. I purchased every new edition as they came out and read each book again prior to that new edition. I learned about this podcast while listening to an Innkeeper podcast about the tv series and decided to check it out. This pod cast...Read full review »
Explayr via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/13/22
Started reading the books with my fiancé Margaret (yup, the one who’s listed as a producer!) after watching the show. Less said about that trainwreck, the better. But the podcast has been a wonderful addition to our evenings and I even followed them through New Spring. 5/5 for analysis and humor
Kingsungura via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/21/22
I’m a first time reader, following along with Dani and Brett. I couldn’t imagine a better couple to share this journey with. These two are hilarious and they make every chapter enjoyable (even the ones where nothing happens except descriptions of trees and clothes 😂). I hope these two keep doing...Read full review »
WoT's in a name? via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/08/22
When I read a new Wheel of Time chapter all I can look forward to is the next episode of The Wheel Weaves. I love being able to revisit what I read and go through it in a detailed manner because this series is full of small details that are easy to miss when you read it one time through. Dani...Read full review »
JCollinJones via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/02/22
I’ve read the first 4 books and then went back to listen to the podcast, and it’s mind blowing the number of subtle details that I don’t pick up on (I’m listening to the audiobooks...sigh), so I really enjoy the podcast. However, my only complaint is that Brett asks a lot of very pointed...Read full review »
not impressed 12345 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/31/22
I started listening to this after watching the show, and instead of yet another re-read of the whole series. This has been a thoroughly entertaining way to go through the series again, so much so that I’m almost sad I’ve caught up to the schedule and have to wait for releases. It’s awesome to...Read full review »

I’ve been reading 2 chapters at a time and then listening along. Have been LOVING these two :)
Ddwilder via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/20/22
There are so many Wheel of Time podcasts out there right now, but Danni and Bret have been at this well before the show came out on Amazon. I have listened to every episode since the start, and this continues to be my favorite Wheel of Time podcast. They are dedicated to staying spoiler free,...Read full review »
Trinity777 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/20/22
I’m through book so far with these guys (idk what I’m gunna do when I catch up). Really great companion podcast to read the book, Brett gives you the tiny details that you won’t catch on the first read through. Makes it a much easier series to jump into
Adddddagkgd via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/20/22
It’s like being a member of a small but erudite and funny book club!

This is a fun series. Having read the series I love hearing Dani's predictions. They do a great job of keeping it spoiler free. chriswest1701 on instagramRead full review »
BodBat via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/15/22
Dani and Brett are just awesome. I’ve tried to listen to at least ten other podcasts but none of them come close to the quality of this one. They balance knowledge with wit, they might divert a bit but it is relevant not just wondering off and leaving me stranded. Brett is wonderful about...Read full review »
Elenapanam via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/05/22
I'm a first reader, and I was sad I couldn't listen to analysis or search about my doubts without spoilers. I'm now on book five, so I started with season 5, and I'm so happy I've found what I consider WoT friends! I share with Dani doubts and predictions, so I love to hear...Read full review »
Maru amb via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/09/22
These two are so delightfully Canadian! Brett is so warm and sweet and excited. Dani is adorable and fun to listen to. I love all the references to other pop fantasy. I just finished book six and started at the beginning. It’s giving me such an in depth look back at the books, I’m seeing so many...Read full review »
RachelAPro via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/26/22
This podcast has two perspectives: a seasoned veteran and a new reader. That is the premise and what drew me in to listening in the first place. Dani and Brett are amazing and I do not know how Brett is able to keep things to himself and even sometimes go with some of Dani’s predictions when he...Read full review »
TarmakWorm via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/04/22
Wheel of Time is one of my current obsessions and there’s only so much my family can take of my babbling about it. I listened to the audiobooks this year and this podcast kept me company along the way. In addition, the discord community is amazing. This is the ONLY thing I have ever been a patron...Read full review »
Madame Rubies via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/31/21
I started listening to the podcast a few months ago when I started reading the books and binged through all their episodes. The episodes are totally spoiler free and a great companion to books. Their combination of a new reader and long time fan is really great. Dani’s predictions are fun to...Read full review »

What a fun journey! Whether you’re a newcomer to the Wheel of Time or a long-time book reader, re-living the series through the eyes of this newbie and her impressively tight-lipped diehard husband breathes the books to life. Dani and Brett keep the conversation lively with traditions, fun facts,...Read full review »

Great companion podcast to the books! I have tricked a couple of my friends into reading the books and listening to D&amp;B alongside is a must! (@arnorg)
Deltafoxarg via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/22/21
Dani and Brett are my dream couple because they get to share WoT together this way. It feels so natural to listen to them walk through the books. Brett is the guru for me in how to discuss the book without ever spoiling. Dani has such incredible insight, even when she totally forgets really...Read full review »
koala gardens via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 12/21/21
I started listening to the wheel weaves early on and have used it as a kind of companion to my reading. I’m slightly ahead now but fell in love with Dani and Brett and it’s a really good way of remembering the details that I find easy to forget! Love the hosts, love the structure, love it all!...Read full review »
2shoes1989 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/30/21
This podcast is a lot of fun and a bit silly. You can often learn something new and it is a great companion for the first Wheel of Time read.
Taylor Tavris via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 11/02/21
Dani is funny when she is reading The Wheel of Time and Bret has a great knowledge of the complete series of the book. Specially the predictions Dani makes are sometimes really hilarious! I will join them for at least the next 3 years!
Gthuis via Apple Podcasts · Netherlands · 11/01/21
Very fun energetic podcast. One host is a veteran Thor other a brand new reader. The discussion guesses and emotion put out always bring a smile to my face. I am personally very impressed poker face on some of the guesses. Thanks so much for all your hard work guys.
SlatsAU via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/24/21
Like Dani, I’m a first time reader, and a bad one at that. I read far to quickly to understand or remember everything (or even most…). This podcast is perfect for me! Not only are Dani and Brett funny and engaging, they also manage to stay beautifully on the razors edge between knowledge and...Read full review »
Sissinetteholl via Apple Podcasts · Norway · 10/23/21
These two balance each other perfectly. I’ve listened to most Wheel of Time pods out there and this is one of the best. As someone who has reread the series about a dozen times, hearing a fresh perspective from a new reader entertaining!
DamerFlynn via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/19/21
I am a first time reader of the Wheel of Time and someone recommended I listen to this podcast as I read. I am thankful to that person because this podcast has been so helpful in catching all of the hints and name drops that I don’t always notice on my own. I started reading/listening only a few...Read full review »
Df,,hsrg via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/16/21
This podcast is so good. The predictions of Dani and the insight of Brett, make this the best first time reader WoT podcast. (dragonreader1 on Instagram)
d_m_h_1 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/05/21
This is one of the most endearing Wheel of Time podcasts out there. The premise is that Brett has read the series several times and is very familiar with the material. His wife Dani is going through the series for the first time. He’s guiding her along without exposing any spoilers and she’s...Read full review »
Midnight-Maker.com via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/02/21
This is truly one of the best Wheel of Time podcasts. Especially for first time readers but even as a reread along. As a big fan of this series myself Brett’s love and enthusiasm for the story and characters is so heartwarming and familiar. It is so fun to listen to Dani discover the story as it...Read full review »

I’ve been through the WOT series more times than I can count. It shocks me that I can enjoy listening to a podcast taking me through it yet again but here I am. Very well done. The only complaint I have is that we aren’t far enough along in the series yet. All good things are worth waiting for I...Read full review »

This is the best first read podcast I have found, both funny and smart it’s the podcast I most look forward to every week I highly recommend it to anyone with an interest in reading for the first time or for those who are veterans of the series. Dani is the first time reader and is insightful and...Read full review »
Blaydon via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/09/21
This podcast deserves 5 stars for the fun facts alone. But, there’s more to it than that! Dani and Brett provide the best wheel of time content on the internet. As a reader who hasn’t quite finished the series but still wants content outside of the books, it’s helpful to have a truly spoiler free...Read full review »

This podcast is a great reason to get back into the book series.
Alex leuenberger via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 09/01/21
I like this podcast so much that I’m double listening to it, once for new episodes and another one from the start! Dani and Brett are so good as hosts making it fun and also explaining so much with the plot. A must listen to any WoT fan!
