A perfect companion while experiencing The Wheel of Time books for the first time or if you’re in the aftermath of finishing the series. It’s an amazing journey to follow along with Dani and Brett. A truly wholesome pair of hosts to listen to while they deep dive into the world Robert Jordan has...Read full review »

Brett and Dani are extremely entertaining as they follow the of Wheel of Time, book by book, chapter by chapter--all spoiler free. Sometimes, the books are so exciting I read them too fast and when finished I am somewhat confused about certain points. Brett and Dani cover every plot twist,...Read full review »

As a first time WoT reader going in completely blind, this podcast is amazingly helpful. Also I love the hosts so much 😁

Finished the series in September and I missed the characters, but luckily stumbled across this amazeballs podcast. As the headline indicates I sorta kinda definitely probably love this podcast. Brett is delightfully nerdy and Dani is just hilarious. Best podcast out there and it’s made me edit my...Read full review »

I started reading WoT around June 2023 and it was fantastic being able to read the same chapter(s) covered by Dani and Brett immediately afterwards. They often provided clarification on things that confused me and I have absolutely loved Dani’s predictions. Some I had made myself, some I...Read full review »

Reading Wheel of Time feels like hanging out with best friends; listening to this podcast feels like listening in on the fun, insightful conversation of two more. I love it. I’m on my third re-read of the book series, but Dani and Brett’s discussions still help me notice key facts and nuances...Read full review »

As a first time reader to this series this podcast is invaluable to breaking down the little things I may otherwise miss. Dani and Brett are thoughtful, funny, and Brett is phenomenal at avoiding spoilers. I can't imagine reading this series without these two and can't wait to start my...Read full review »

I read the Conan books in the 80’s, followed RJ into WOT and I’ve read the series through several times. 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 Kudos to both sides of the discussion. I can’t...Read full review »

The best podcast for first time readers. They are a lot of fun. Dani is a great fellow first time reader and Bret is an awesome guide. They have transformed the experience of reading this series from just that to a whole journey that I’ll never forget.
fdrhfs via Apple Podcasts · India · 10/03/23
Wonderful podcast. Excellent hosts with a perfect blend of first time reading with long-time knowledge. If you’ve just started reading the Wheel of Time (like I have), this is THE podcast to listen to, especially if you don’t know anyone who is also reading it, and want a debriefing on all of the...Read full review »

It pains me to leave such a low review when I really enjoyed this podcast for a long time, but I just had to stop during the 10th book, Knife of Dreams. It was great getting more insight into the story because they kept tabs on all characters and various plot points to make sense of it all. But...Read full review »

I’ve been listening since I started reading book 5 and it’s been an amazing companion. The hosts are hilarious, it makes the books much easier to follow and much more fun. My enjoyment of the series at least doubled once I started listening to this podcast.
Bliz1002 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/02/23
You might think that me quoting Tina Turner is a reach but I can guarantee you it is absolutely not. This is by the best podcast I’ve heard by far ! Now, the wheel of time is an amazing series but reading along with Dani and Brett has made this such a fun experience! Even the so called “slog”...Read full review »
@drf129 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/30/23
I was recommended this book series when the Wheel of Time was first announced to show on Prime and was instantly interested. However, I did my very best reading through the first book and had to stop slightly into the second due to the expansive world building by Robert Jordan which competed with...Read full review »

Fantastic for first time and eighth time readers!

My week is not complete without at least one episode of Dani and Brett. They have such a fun dynamic, and I love Dani’s takes as she reads. #Bingeworthy ~ @zuuldanalou on Discord and @danaLou_who on Twitter

I’ve been following for three years and enjoy every episode. I’m currently reading along through Knife of Dreams and enjoy the discussion and analysis. Keep up the fun facts and please make your Aes Sedai notebook downloadable to help the rest of us first timers!
Swallow the Horse via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/19/23
Love Brett’s fun facts and Dani’s predictions are amazing. Just such an amazing take on the series so far. I’m up to book 5 with you guys and it’s been amazing.
Jagger's via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/10/23
I’ve been following along with the podcast for my entire WOT journey. I’ve never ready any book/series in this format, and I absolutely love it. This podcast allows me to explore all the depth and lore of the WOT universe. I’m just about to start Lord of Chaos, and my only regret is that I’m...Read full review »

Love this podcast. Funny. Informative. Huge help in connecting the dots in a fantasy world with so many characters and nations. Only complaint, please edit out the gagging sounds the female host makes after taking a shot. Those are super cringy.
joejoerant via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/23/23
Five stars for SURE! Absolutely love this podcast! I’ve read WoT countless times but my partner is only just getting into it now. It’s been great to listen along to Brett and Dani (sorry if I muck up the spelling!) going through exactly the same thing! Love Dani’s wild predictions and love...Read full review »

I enjoy this podcast very much! I have discovered it only recently and now binge listen to this as if it was an actual audio book. I have listened to the series 3 times and this is almost like a fourth read, so many details I had missed before and always fun to hear really true or really wrong...Read full review »

They deliver all and above all expectations!

I just finished the series but I had come across this podcast when I was on book 3 and LOVED IT! Funny, always fresh and the formula of one new reader and the experienced reader helping to explain what might have been missed WITHOUT SPOILING the series was brilliant! So many nuances to the series...Read full review »

The best show in Randland! Thank you for being my most entertaining companion since episode 1. Great job! @Rica_Ituralde

As someone who has read the entire series, it’s exciting to listen to someone who hasn’t read it!! To get the perspectives and thoughts on what is going to happen next!! Keep up the good work!
Mantheren via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/03/23
I’ve been following this podcast for a few years now, and WHOA! These two (Dani and Brett) are awesome! They have great communication between each other, this is a fascinating idea (first time reader)! Also, if you don’t know they have a huge community following on Discord, Instagram, Twitter,...Read full review »

@christianrapper These guys are awesome! They are funny as heck. I have read this series many times and they have pointed out so many things that I missed. I would recommend this to any WOT fan.
christianrapper5 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/15/23
Long time huge fan of the wheel of time, have read the books many times but even so coming back and reading through them again and hearing Dani and Brett discuss them has been really lovely, getting to experience them as new again through Dani’s eyes (voice?) has been so great - and there’s been...Read full review »

Just finished reading the Great Hunt and found myself in dire need of a podcast companion cause I have so many thoughts on everything and need to know that all my opinions are, in fact, correct. After listening to a few good shows, I settled on this one because I find that it feels the most like...Read full review »
Drew Alexandra via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/23/23
As a fan I like the fact that they discuss one chapter at time, they analyse everything with a lot of details.. I hate the Harry Potter references but that’s just personal preference and I get that that’s a good excuse to get a wee shot… Dani and Brett as a team work pretty well but unfortunately...Read full review »

“The first thing you do after reading The Wheel of Time is re-read the wheel of time.” Ain’t nobody got time for that, but listening to this podcast has served as my re-read. I’m a listening a couple of books back from what I’ve read and it’s fantastic. It’s amazing the things Dani picks up on...Read full review »

I’ve been reading 2 chapters at a time and then listening along. Have been LOVING these two :)

Love going through these books with the podcast hosts. After I passed them during my read I felt a void without their commentary!
Jorfy!!!! via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/02/23
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 ;)
Nadal196 via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 12/28/22
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 »
EvaTK via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/15/22
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 »
Maverickcbs2000 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/11/22
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 »
JusteHero via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/04/22
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 »

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 »

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
