The Sandersonian Institute of Cosmere Studies

Aug 2, 2023

NOTICE: We had some technical difficulties recording this episode, and we ended up having to rely on our backup recording. That recording is, unfortunately, lower quality, so some of the audio levels and quality are a bit off. We hope you still enjoy the discussion, though!

Story time! Specifically, we're discussing another one of Wit's stories: "Fleet." This is a fun one, and it has some great deeper meanings and messages in it. We hope you enjoy our conversation, because we certainly did!


This episode's show notes can be found here:
