S1E6 - Sourcery

Another Rincewind book, replete with sex jokes, uncomfortable orientalism, a magic war, the apocralypse, a return to slightly pissy Death. Is this the Rincewind Reichenbach Falls? Maybe. Some of us wish it was.

Sourcery marks the first book with some disagreement among our hosts, but what would life be without some healthy, well-mannered debate? Strengths include solid lore-building regarding the wizards, including why they’re forbidden from boning down, and more of Terry’s musings on identity. Weaknesses include coherence as an overall novel and some uncomfortable orientalism. CW: frank discussion of child abuse in at 46:22 out at 55:13
