    That story during the Monopoly segment was both sad and funny.

    Can we sponsor a segment where each podcast participant brings up a painful or disturbing memory from their past, as opposed to what entertainment they’re currently enjoying?

    I enjoyed the board game cast though. Whenever the conversation careens off into different avenues is great.

    Dancing Matt’s Blasts from the Past? Sure! Why not!

    Its very nice to hear a reading of the Color of Magic. It’s one of my favorite books. I find it strange that people find it to be one of the weaker disc world novels and yet I find it to be the best Discworld Novel.

    @RabidKitten: I really like it, myself. There are some sentence-level issues with the writing, and Pratchett himself admitted that his first few novels were a beginning effort, but the overall plot construction is sound, the characters are good, and I think the ending particularly brave (especially for an author’s early work).

    I prefer many of the later novels because there’s more in-jokes and more of an established universe to work with. The setting just became richer and more lived-in with each consecutive novel.
