A quick programming note: We've had a lot of stressors pop up at us lately and our buffer isn't as big as I'd have liked, so we're going to stick with an every-other week schedule going into our coverage of The Wise Man's Fear (which starts in two weeks!) until I have a comfortable lead-time for editing.

We determined that course of action by running a twitter poll - if you'd like more involvement with this kind of decision, check us out @waystonepod on Twitter.

Yes! You read the title right! That long-awaited mailbag episode we promised is FINALLY here!!! We spent an afternoon talking about comic books, board games, and of course The Kingkiller Chronicle to answer all your burning questions.

We also turned the tables on our family and friends with some funny and cute interviews of the people who love us most! Along the way we still managed to get some interesting facts courtesy of Will's sister Anna, and an interview with Will's personal phronemos: his grandfather Jack.

Somewhere along the way, Will promised I'd share links to games I made at DigiPen and probably one or two other things I've forgotten about. Those will show up at Patreon.com/waystonepod for all the world to see.

We hope you love it as much as we did.
