The Amazing Maurice & His Educated Rodents – Puss in Cahoots

Colm and Steve examine the first YA Discworld book. They ponder on the difference between young adult and, eh, old adult literature. And they also discuss Pratchett’s love of cargo cults, his more cynical take on the role of stories and one of his scarier villains (no, not the rat catchers after a hefty dose of laxatives).

The Fifth Elephant – A Morporkian Werewolf in Uberwald

Colm and Steve watch Ridley Scott’s The Fifth Elephant with Harrison Ford as Vimes, Rutgar Hauer as Wolfgang and, eh, Imelda Staunton as Lady Margolotta. Well, not quite, but have a listen and you’ll see what we’re getting at here. We went to Uberwald expecting fat and uncovered a gem instead.

Carpe Jugulum – Three’s a Coven, Four’s a Crowd

Supernatural foes are trying to take over the kingdom and Granny Weatherwax is starting to doubt herself! Sound familiar? Colm and Steve take in the last hurrah of the Lancre Witches, discussing its similarities and differences to the mighty Lords and Ladies, and how it follows on from Small Gods with the decidedly, deliberately un-mighty Mightily Oats.
