VoK 233: The Virtues of a 9-Inch Meat Pie aka The Great Linear ASOIAF ReRead (Part 2)


hot-pie

The second podcast in our linear ASOIAF re-read begins with feedback on last week’s episode focussing on the character of Ser Weymar Royce and Lunar dragons.  We then cover the events of April 298, with the King and the Lannisters arriving at Winterfell as news of Jon Arryn’s death reaches Cat.  This translates into the Game of Thrones chapters Ned 1 (16m), Jon 1 (37m), Cat 2 (49m) and Arya 1 (1h5m).  The aftershow begins at 1hr 15m.

Spoilers:  All published novels in the ASOIAF series but neither spoiler chapters for The Winds of Winter nor the latest season of Game of Thrones.

Podcast hosts: FTWard (Thomas), Mordion (Michael), Claudius The Fool (Greg), Bina007, Middlecyclone (Amanda), Nadia, Varley (Matt) and Whiteraven (Brett) .

For those of you playing along at home, the next episode will cover the events of May 298, so Game of Thrones: Bran 2, Tyrion 1, Jon 2 and Cat 3.

Picture credit: HBO’s Game of Thrones. Music credit: Michael Jackson’s Billy Jean.

VoK 177: Political Communications in ASOIAF (w/Prof. David D. Perlmutter)


Tywin

In this academic-inspired episode, Kingsgrave head-honcho Amin discusses Westerosi politics with David D. Perlmutter, a communications professor from Texas Tech University. Also joining them is Michael (Mordion) and Aziz (from History of Westeros).

Topics include political persuasion, propaganda, and public relations amongst the various factions of A Song of Ice and Fire. And stick around afterwards for a brief recap of Davos I (from ASOS), flown in directly from Amin’s “other” podcast. 😉
