The Wheel of Time was first introduced to the world in 1990, and launched an epic series spanning 17 books, a prequel novel, several short stories, multiple fandom communities, comic books, multiple games, a soundtrack, and a television show. Given the incredible amount of content, it should be no surprise that there are dozens of podcasts dedicated to discussing every aspect of the series, from the details of the swords to swooning over the show cast.
We scanned the airways and compiled 16 amazing Wheel of Time podcasts, with selections for veteran readers as well as new fans.
The Wheel Weaves
Dani is a first-time reader and Brett is a long-term fan. Together they go through the series, analyzing it chapter by chapter. This podcast is fantastic for new readers, as Dani and Brett keep the content spoiler-free.
This is another podcast hosted by a longtime fan with a newbie. Gus has read the whole of Robert Jordan's book series, and Ali hasn’t. Every week they evaluate the books in detail, and have in-depth discussions on the episodes of the show.
The Dragon Reread
Three fans who read the series when they were younger have joined forces to reread the series, five chapters at a time. Every episode provides a recap of the five chapters, making it easy to catch up or follow along in whatever way is easiest for listeners.
