How Pratchett’s Discworld characters would cope with the lockdown

Discworld characters go through a lot during their own stories but how would they fare in our current pandemic situation? Would they crumble or come into their own?

Fans of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld book series will be pleased to hear that some clever folk have worked it out for us. The Truth Shall Make Ye Fret podcast are HUGE Discworld fans and regularly discuss the universe Pratchett created, reading and reflecting on each book in order. If anyone will know how Rincewind, Nanny Ogg, and even Death, would live during the COVID-19 viral pandemic, it would be them.

Podcasters Joanna Hagan-Young and Francine Carrel split each Discworld book into three weekly episodes, with a week off in between novels- find The Truth Shall Make Ye Fret where you normally find your podcasts or visit Buzzsprout to listen online.
