Hogswatch 2020: A Hint of Extravaganza

The Truth Shall Make Ye Fret is a podcast in which your hosts, Joanna Hagan and Francine Carrel, usually read and recap every book from Sir Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series in chronological order.

This week, a bonus extra special super duper gee golly whiz extravaganza… all right, that might be over-egging it, but we chat about Rhianna Pratchett’s Crystal of Storms (spoiler-light discussion), and wander off on some festive tangents.
