Well met, everyone! I am the host of a relatively new podcast called Reading the Realms. We are a book club podcast that is reading the novels in publication order and then discussing them on the show. Our most recent episode covers Azure Bonds and I will provide a link below to the SoundCloud page so that you can have a listen. We are also available on iTunes/apple podcasts and google play podcasts.

https://soundcloud.com/user-538023235/episode-5-azure-bonds

We are by no means experts when it comes to realmslore, just longtime fans of the books and the setting, So please forgive our less than comprehensive knowledge of characters and history.

The goal with this monthly show is to create a book club style format with listeners reading along and sending in their thoughts, opinions, and any fun lore so that we can read it out and discuss it on the show in talkback episodes. You can email us at readingtherealms@gmail.com and we are also on twitter: @ReadingFR

So I hope you will listen, enjoy, and join us on our journey!

I came across it little while back and have already listened to a few. It's great fun, covering novels I read when I was much younger (Azure Bonds was the first Realms novel I ever read, I think, sometime in the early 1990s) and have nostalgia for but am unlikely to reread soon. The commentary is eloquent and entertaining from what I've heard. Hope you get to my fiction at some point (though I doubt it will be any time soon!).

Hey thanks for subscribing! It's good for long drives as they tend to be long episodes.

Hi Murray, thank you so much for the kind words about the show! You're right, it may be some time before we get to your works, but may I keep you in mind for an author interview when we get there?

Excellent! I'll be reading along with the books I do have. Having great guests like Elaine on the show sounds truly promising!

Hello everyone, Reading the Realms is back from a short hiatus and we have just put out Episode 7 - Darkwell. We close out the Moonshae Isles Trilogy with a discussion of Douglas Niles' third Realms novel. We are a little more critical of this entry, but also want to encourage everyone to write in - whether they agree or disagree with our assessment - and we'll read the responses out on our next 'Reader's Circle' episode, which is coming later this month. Please send any thoughts to readingtherealms@gmail.com We're also on twitter: @ReadingFR

You can find the show on Apple iTunes Podcasts, Google Play Podcasts, and SoundCloud.

Hey lads! I know this may sound silly but would you ever consider reading the supplments? Loads of 2nd edition material to read. I've gone back to reading Volo's Guide to the Sword Coast and it's brilliant!

“Fantasy is escapist, and that is its glory. If a soldier is imprisioned by the enemy, don't we consider it his duty to escape?. . .If we value the freedom of mind and soul, if we're partisans of liberty, then it's our plain duty to escape, and to take as many people with us as we can!”
#8213; J.R.R. Tolkien

We've considered it, but along with having to find and purchase all of the books, it would be more than a little overwhelming to have to cover all of the numerous FR supplements that have come out over the year's as well.

We are trying to pull in some outside info on deities, places, and characters when it calls for it, but that's about as far as we'll go into the deeper lore. HOWEVER, we do encourage listeners to send emails with more info on lore and backstory! We dedicate whole episodes to listener responses, so please if you want us to include some info by all means send us an email at readingtherealms@gmail.com with whatever you'd like us to talk about!

Hey I think the idea of doing a bookclub type podcast of the novels alone would be great. It's been 30 odd years since I've read some of the older tomes and I'd love to experience them again....yes I know I could read them myself but this sounds fun too!

Finally started listening to your podcast. So far I'm enjoying it greatly. I'm only onto the second episode so far with The Crystal Shard. I wanted to offer a correction though. You have been referring to Guenhwyvar as a male panther. But she's a female panther.

Good work so far!

Episode 8 of Reading the Realms, the Forgotten Realms book club podcast is finally here! We cover Shadowdale by Richard Awlinson aka Scott Ciencin, the first book of the all-important Avatar Trilogy.

Apologies for the bad audio quality, but we still have a spirited discussion and this episode shouldn't be missed! If we missed some important bit of lore or you have an opinion about these books, send us your thoughts on the Avatar Trilogy and all things Time of Troubles to readingtherealms@gmail.com. You can find the show on Apple iTunes Podcasts, Google Play Podcasts, and SoundCloud. Happy reading!

Episode 9 of Reading the Realms is here and we continue our summer read through of The Avatar Series with an in-depth discussion of Tantras by Richard Awlinson aka Scott Ciencin. Language warning for those with sensitive ears, the discussion gets pretty "lively" at certain points. If you want to send in your thoughts on Tantras or any of the first three Avatar books which cover the Time of Troubles, please email us at readingtherealms@gmail.com. We want to hear your thoughts and opinions and we'll read them out during our next Reader's Circle episode! We're also on Twitter: @ReadingFR

You can find Reading the Realms on iTunes Podcasts, Google Play Podcasts, and SoundCloud, or just click the link below.

Reading the Realms is back with our tenth episode! We round out the original Avatar Trilogy with a discussion of Waterdeep by Richard Awlinson (aka Troy Denning). We've had a lot of fun tackling the Time of Troubles over the course of this summer and now we want to hear from fans about all three novels: Shadowdale, Tantras, and Waterdeep. Please send your thoughts and opinions to readingtherealms@gmail.com and we will read them out on our next episode in August! In particular, we'd love to hear from folks who like/love this series.
