The Sandersonian Institute of Cosmere Studies

Apr 18, 2018

The SICS crew is back! This week, Bill and Amy (and Jordan, kind of) dive into Mistborn: The Final Empire. Unfortunately, due to some technical difficulties, Jordan's audio did not record, but we didn't want to just scrap the entire episode, so we've pulled together a version with Jordan's sections removed. We're working on recreating some of that audio, but in the meantime, enjoy at least part of our discussion about Scadrial, a crucial focal point in Brandon Sanderson's Cosmere universe.

You can email us your questions about the Cosmere at We will occasionally select emails to respond to during the show, so we'd love to hear any theories you have, no matter how far-fetched, or anything else you may have to say about Brandon Sanderson's work.

Follow us at for our live shows, which stream on Mondays, every two weeks, at 8:30pm Mountain Time. VODs will be posted on the Cosmere Studies YouTube account here at

The Sandersonian Institute of Cosmere Studies is a biweekly podcast for fans of Brandon Sanderson's Cosmere novels. Bill, Amy, and Jordan discuss Brandon's work and dive a bit too deep into theories and speculation. So put on your aluminum foil hats and join us for the ride as we discuss Brandon's work and your emails, and remember—there's ALWAYS another secret!
