The Lord of the Rings Series - The Legendarium Podcast
Welcome to our Lord of the Rings podcast series! This was The Legendarium Podcast’s first series, so it’s a bit rough around the edges, but it’s also a ton of fun. Ryan Bruckman and Craig Hanks take on Tolkien’s masterpiece a few chapters at a time, giving Ryan (a first time reader) a chance to dive deep into all the great characters, worthless trivia, and life-changing philosophy. Enjoy!

The Wheel of Time Podcast Series - The Legendarium Podcast
Welcome to our Wheel of Time podcast series! Every month, starting in November 2016, we’ll be covering one book in the series, starting with The Eye of the World. Each book will get at least two episodes, with a possibility for more. You may be coming to this page before we start, or maybe while we’re still working through the series. Go ahead and join the conversation now! In the comments below, let us know what you want us to cover, what you’re most excited about, and how many episodes you think we’ll get through before a fist fight finally breaks out between the panelists. One rule, though: Please mark your spoilers. Some of the panelists and many of the listeners will be reading these books for the first time, so give fair warning before you tell everyone that Darth Vader is Rand’s real father.

Switzerland is Prepared for Civilizational Collapse - Marginal REVOLUTION
“In another [underground bunker], detailed instructions on how to build devices for reading all known data storage formats, even older formats like floppy disks, are kept, so that if that knowledge is otherwise lost, future generations can still decode our data storage devices to access the data within correctly. Essentially, the researchers involved in this particular project have attempted to create a “Rosetta Stone” of data formats and are using a ridiculously secure Swiss bunker as the storage point for that knowledge.”
