Trailer

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

We’ll be splitting each book into three weekly episodes, with a week off in between books to refresh our brains. 

This trailer should give you an idea of what you’re in for. We’ll laugh, we’ll cry, and occasionally we’ll try for a bit of nuanced analysis. 

Join us on November 4th for Episode 1!
