The 4th Age Podcast – Episode 65 - The Lost Episode


Guest Virginia

405 views

From the depths of a newly uncovered stasis box we came across this "lost" episode, which we affectionately refer to as "The Ta'veren Date Rape Episode". A bit racier than our usual, definitely PG-13, but not nearly as shocking as it sounds! No ta'veren were harmed in the making of this episode, nor were any of their dates, real or imaginary. Unless you quail at the mention of pillow friends, you'll be okay....and hopefully, gentle readers, you won't think it deserved to stay lost! Some have called it one of our funniest yet. You shall be the judge. But please, no balefire!

 

The title comes from a misunderstanding of something that was said, and it rolled on from there. Regulars Andrew G and Virginia and former host and producer Andrew M feature in this strange little episode. In real time it was recorded around the time of the "Geopolitical Ramifications" episodes.

 

It isn't really Explicit, but I checked that just in case anyone is silly enough to play podcasts over their speakers at work - and who does that, really? I mean, unless you WANT to get fired, or your job is as a reviewer at iTunes or something! ;-) in which case, I want to know where to apply for your job! - Virginia

Hey guys just in for a couple of things really quick.

 

Mike, we do have the Reading/Kramer interview. It was conducted by (If I'm correct) Jason, our host founder/administrator. I know we asked for the recording so we could post it, but I'm not sure what ever became of the request. It is a small comfort to me in an odd way that these sorts of things happen, because it shows me just how often these sorts of delays happen outside of our own podcast setting. It makes me feel less alone knowing that it happens to a lot of us.

 

Heather, thanks for the support. Thank you everyone who has supported us on this one. I wasn't very involved with the decision making process on this one, but it was obviously tough call. We know we won't always post things that listeners will agree with or like, but we do try our best. Sometimes it's hard to tell if we are repeating the same pet theories, presenting new and/or compelling arguments, or just sticking our collective feet in our mouths. As for Padan Fain, I don't know. I see him as an odd allusion to Smeagol in LotR in some ways. Sure Fain was bad to begin with and not just a victim of circumstance like the fish loving proto-hobbit, but in a way it is a bit endearing that we have someone who hates Rand not just because of what he is, but because he feels that Rand personally is a huge part of why his life is as demolished as it is. That said I want to see him gone, but in a clever and non-falling-into-a-volcano-ish sort of way. On a side note, I think that Fain would be an interesting character to play in a movie/tv series should it ever get made. Sadly, I think I might be getting too old to play Matt anymore and I'm not sure if there is a decent roll to be had among the protagonist minded post-twenties characters in the novels that I feel I could fill the roll for.

 

Meh, who knows.

look different things aRE INSULTUING TO DIFFERENT PEOPLE FOR DIFFERENT REASONS BUT IN GENERAL YOU SHOULD TAKE PEOPLE AND THE WORLD WITH A GRAIN OF SALT. IF i CURSE IN PUBLIC AND SOME ONE HEARS IT AND GETS OFFENDED , WELL IF YOU DONT MEAN IT TO BE INSULTING THEN YOU SHOULDNT BE INSULTED BY IT. HOW CAN YOU BE INSULTED BY A PERSON SAYING A WORD WHEN IT ISNT MEANT AS AN ATTACK. LIGHTEN UP.

hey,

love the podcast. it's one of my favoriets! I think people in general either need to loosen up, or harden up. I, being a Child of the Night, tend to laugh at things other people find desterbing, so take what i say loosely.

I personaly LOVE Fain. I think watching him turn from a peddler to a wrechted Smeagol, to the great evil he is now is a fasinating thing.

Sure, i won't morn his death, but i like his character.

question on the "Date Rape", Rand "Date Rapes" Min, Elayne, and Avi, but did perrin do the same to the Falcon? and what about Mat? I don't think the Ta'veren pull is what made him fall for tuon or vise versa.

One word: Logain! By far the most unattached (minus his two Aes Sedai) and hottest male character. He's a little bit of a bad guy fighting the good fight. Hopefully we'll see Logain rise above Taim and demolish him (aura of glory?).

 

Seriously? Pillow friends? When Aes Sedai rarely marry, not all take on Warders (and even those who do, they don't necessarily sleep with them), what else could be expected? Another reason to join the White Tower!!

 

Hmmm...mindless violence? Moghedien for sure. Such a sniveling excuse of a human being (let alone a so-called "Forsaken"). And whoever Mesaana is posing as. I would like to trap her in her guise and torture her in that form...you know, take away her power and all. We know Moghedian was humiliated to be in her "lesser form", so Mesaana is definitely asking for it.
