Welcome to Show #48!
Editor’s note: There were numerous audio problems with this show, including a sudden cutoff before the end of the discussion. We’d hoped that exhaustive searches of a few backup sources would turn up that missing 20 minutes, but unfortunately, it’s lost to time.
Feature Discussion: Dave, Brian and Jen discuss the 1982 Ursula K. Le Guin classic Earthsea series.
While they touch on all the books in the original trilogy and Tehanu, they primarily talk about the first novel, A Wizard of Earthsea, which focuses on a young Ged, following the story of his apprenticeship, schooling and training as a wizard.
There’s also an anime produced by Studio Ghibli, and of course, the poorly reviewed SciFi Channel miniseries “based on” the novels that annoyed the author. Annoyed her greatly.
