Some time last year, Sun Fin (who is to blame if you hate it) and I (taking sole credit if you like it) came up with a podcast idea. To use the novel chapters to discuss themes of the novel but also act as a non-backlash introduction to the historical era as well plus the odd interview and deep dive episodes that go deeper into history on certain themes.
Sun Fin is usually the host and I take a regular guest role with a guest (Aaron.k and Taishi Ci 2.0 of this community have both recorded episodes with us, CaTigeReptile is set to record soon). ZL181, 昭烈-Zhāolìe and Zhou Dadudu (who also guests) have done a lot of work behind the scenes as well.
Our format is host (usually Sun Fin), main guest from the community and me or Dadudu as supporting guest. Then we chat about the themes from the novel and the history, a conversation between the three that usually lasts between 45 minutes to an hour (deep dives may go longer depending on subject) and we hope to provide something even the experienced members of this community can enjoy and take something from.
