political ideas 

@discpod Got to June talking about Ankh-Morpork as kind of a libertarian hellscape and wanted to share a thought.

It's not saying unfettered libertarianism will works, it's saying it would NOT work without an infinitely clever and determined dictator in Vetenari. He is required to make sure that capital *remembers* that it needs to protect common interests to protect its own interests.

hot take: the reason pratchett's attempts to write about race in discworld were so often disastrous is because he's writing about a fantasy parody of England but he doesn't include their colonialist past

ankh morpork has colonialist attitudes but not an actual history of colonialism that is understood as part of the universe

Twin Peaks, winner of the British Fantasy Award 1990, primarily for its evocative title. (evocative of tits, specifically)

AAAAAND LET'S GO TO THE BIG BOARD

Pyramids came in at number four in our ranking! Just ahead of Sourcery, but still behind Equal Rites. (Which is probably understandable, considering there's, what, two female characters in the whole book?) Still, nice try!

GAZE UPON OUR PODCAST, YE MIGHTY, AND DISC COVER! Our new episode, PYRAMIDS, is live! This book was.... not that interesting, but our discussion about it sure was!

anchor.fm/discpod/episodes/07-

Just finished having a delightful disc-cussion about PYRAMIDS, a book that (ironically, or maybe aptly) we found kind of dry and lacking a clear point. Episode coming soon! 🌍🐢

Aaaaaand let's go to the big board to check out our new ranking.....

SO CLOSE, and hotly debated to boot! WYRD SISTERS is sitting pretty in second place, but (we finally decided) just didn't quite hit the high notes that MORT did.

What do YOU think? Hit us up with a reply! Hashtag join the conversation!

What have WE been up to? Oh, just hiding babies, messing up plays, getting imprisoned for selling apples, and blasting an entire country fifteen years into the future. Y'know, hot girl shit. NEW DISC COVERERS EP IS LIVE-- we're covering WYRD SISTERS!
anchor.fm/discpod/episodes/06-

Just cut our next episode!! This one gets a little.... WYRD, folks, if you get our drift! (It's Wyrd Sisters. We talked about Wyrd Sisters. Great book!)

Aaaaand let's go to our ranking...

Oh hey! It looks like SOURCERY is our first book that didn't take the top spot simply by being the next book chronological order! That's... kind of an accomplishment! Way to be number three, SOURCERY!

Show thread

anchor.fm/discpod/episodes/05- WHY AREN'T WIZARDS ALLOWED TO FUCK? Because if they do, books like SOURCERY happen. There's a new episode of DISC COVERERS up now!

Aaaaand let's go to the big board for the new ranking...

Looks like MORT swings in at the top of the list! It's the best Discworld novel we've read so far, and it actually feels like it's earned the title. A pretty rad read!

Make sure to tune in next month to find out where book 5, SOURCERY, measures up! (It's a Rincewind novel, so... your guess is as good as mine.)

GET HYPED, BECAUSE A-- *ahem*, sorry-- a new episode of Disc Coverers is live! In this episode we tackle MORT, a novel that's essentially about a young laborer grappling with hazardous working conditions and irresponsible management. Fun!
