 “Gods of Thrones” – “Fire and Blood” – Part 1 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:09:02

My Gods of Thrones co-author Anthony is back once again as we do a deep dive on GRRM’s latest work, Fire & Blood! We talk about events up to but not including “Jaehaerys and Alysanne, Their Triumphs and Tragedies”. Next week we’ll be reading up to “The Dying of the Dragons, Rhaenyra Triumphant”, before finishing the book the week after. This week’s all about Aegon, Maegor, and the third generation Targaryen that really steals the show, Jaehaerys! We talk about the gossipy tone the Maester sometimes takes, the doctrinal concept of “Targaryen Exceptionalism”, missing dragon eggs, maester conspiracy theories, and that most well worn Thrones hobbyhorse, incest. Yes! Our book is available in multiple formats, and is currently on sale! Buy it now and treat you or your favorite Thrones fan to a unique, informative, and funny gift.

Also, Anthony has some stunning revelations about the possible origins of the rib-bone that God took from Adam to make the first woman in the Genesis creation story. You don’t want to miss this!

 “Gods of Thrones” – Chattin’ Catelyn | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:25:25

Anthony and A.Ron continue their deep dive into the characters and themes from their new book, “Gods of Thrones”. Now available on paperback! Today we’re talking about a polarizing character among the fandom, Catelyn Stark. What are the essential differences between Book!Cat and TV!Cat? What is her worst move in playing the Game? Who would win in an all-female Houseoff? How vital is Lady Stoneheart’s arc to understanding Catelyn, and why does the show skip it entirely? We discuss and debate all this and more! If you’d like to read more about how real life religions and cultures have shaped A Song of Ice and Fire as well as it’s TV adaptation Game of Thrones, our book “Gods of Thrones” is now available in digital and paperback form. It makes a great Christmas present for your hard to please Thrones fan!

 “Gods of Thrones” – Talking Tyrion | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:16:02

It goes without saying that Tyrion Lannister is an extremely interesting character in A Song of Ice and Fire / Game of Thrones, but you’d think he’d make a poor focus for our book on Westerosi religion. After all, he’s famously skeptical of superstition and faith in a world full of magic, physics defying creatures, and powerful gods. But it’s precisely that contradiction that makes him so fascinating in this context! Join Anthony and I for a deep dive into Tyrion, the events that have shaped him, and the journey that has brought him before a dragon goddess that he can believe in. Have questions or feedback? Send it in using the contact info below… Our book, “Gods of Thrones” is available now on Amazon! If you’ve already read it, we’d really appreciate you leaving us a rating and review. It’s one of the best ways you can help us promote the book! A print version will be available to buy very soon now!

 “Gods of Thrones” – Introduction | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 54:36

We have a special series of podcasts for you coming out over the next few weeks! Dr. Anthony Le Donne joins me today to talk about the new book we co-authored in the off-season, Gods of Thrones: A Pilgrim’s Guide to the Religions of Ice and Fire, available now on Amazon. The book is filled with fun analysis of the religions, cultures, and characters of Game of Thrones and delves into the real life history and religion that inspired GRRM when creating his world. We discuss our history with Thrones/Song, as well as our book, its tone, our writing process, and our favorite things we learned in our research. We’ll be back next week to talk more Gods of Thrones and take your questions. Later this month we’ll be joined by some of your favorite podcast hosts and writers to host a three part book club-style review of George R.R. Martin’s upcoming historical book on the Targaryens, Fire and Blood! If you’ve read Gods of Thrones, please help us out by rating and reviewing it on Amazon!

 310 – Mhysa | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2:07:28

And just like that, we put HBO’s Game of Thrones season three into the Bald Move history books. Again. “Mhysa” is an excellent way to wrap up the season and set the table for season four, as we get great work out of all our star-crossed lovers; Tyrion, Shae, Sansa, Jon, and Ygritte. Arya has some fine work servicing the fan’s desire to see her be the terrifying little murder beast we know she can be while simultaneously making us feel really, really bad for her lot in life. Ramsay might be a total and complete bastard, but he does know how to work a pork sausage to get some laughs in an other wise pitch black scene. Finally, Dany attempts to end her season three arc on a note of triumph, but is hampered by the racial tone deafness of the show runners. Thanks for joining us on this ride! We’ll be back in November to discuss Martin’s new book on Targaryen history, Fire and Blood, as well as Anthony and I’s new book, Gods of Thrones.  Leave Us A Review on Apple Podcasts Join the discussion:  Email  |  Forums  |  Facebook  |  Twitter Theme song: Game of Thrones (80’s TV Theme) by Highway Superstar

 309 – The Rains of Castamere | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:35:06

This week we have the pleasure of talking about one of the best, and most gut wrenching episodes of HBO’s Game of Thrones, “The Rains of Castamere”. The Lannisters score a decisive victory against the Starks in surprising and brutal fashion. Particularly rough is Arya, who is forced to witness the destruction of her family when she was oh so close to being reunited with them. Over in Essos, Dany provides a lone bright point as her captains’ valor and her reputation as Breaker of Chains lays the slave city of Yunkai at her feet. We’ll be back next week to wrap this season up. See you then!

 308 – Second Sons | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:23:05

Jim and A.Ron consider the latest episode in our summer re-watch of season three of HBO’s Game of Thrones. “Second Sons” features the second happiest wedding we’ve ever seen on Westeros (which is damning with non-existent praise), Arya swinging from utter despair to something approaching optimism in her captivity with the Hound (the sweet, summer child), as newcomer Daario Naharis steals into Dany’s camp attempts to steal Dany’s heart. We discuss all this and more! Leave Us A Review on Apple Podcasts Join the discussion:  Email  |  Forums  |  Facebook  |  Twitter Theme song: Game of Thrones (80’s TV Theme) by Highway Superstar

 307 – The Bear and the Maiden Fair | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:36:00

On this week’s episode of our summer Game of Thrones rewatch, “The Bear and the Maiden Fair”, Brienne picks on someone her own size, Joffery tries talking politics with his grandpa, Robb YOLOs his way through a fraught political position to buy some extra time to consort with his queen, and Sansa and Tyrion lament their respective fates. For feedback we discuss the relative intelligence of wights, debate the apparent height of the Wall, and consider people’s pet theories on what things will look like post series-finale of Thrones. See you back here next week!

 306 – The Climb | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:40:49

We’re back with another terrific season three episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones, “The Climb”. Of course the title refers to the Wildlings’ epic climb of The Wall, but also Littlefinger’s unhinged speech about chaos delivered to a shell shocked Varys. Both are amazing in their way, as is Lady Olena and Lord Tywin’s political duel in the Hand’s chambers. We discuss all this plus tons of fan commentary and questions!

 305 – Kissed by Fire | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2:02:20

Lots of things get “Kissed by Fire” in this episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones. The Hound. Jon Snow. Leslie’s Rose. But in all seriousness there is so much good packed into this hour of Thrones; Robb beheading an important bannerman in the pouring rain; Jaime venting a lifetime of frustration and regret upon an unsuspecting Brienne; Tywin managing to bitterly disappoint both of the children he has in his presence; and Dany looking more and more like the Conquerer that she thinks she’s destined to be. Join us for a lengthy discussion of all of this and more, and just a metric ton of feedback from your fellow fans. See you next week!

 304 – And Now His Watch Is Ended | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:48:28

We really enjoyed “And Now His Watch Is Ended”, the latest episode in our summer rewatch of HBO’s Game of Thrones series. Packed with intellectually satisfying intrigue, as well as one of the more satisfying action scenes in Thrones history, it has something for just about everyone. We ponder the comeuppance of Tywin’s children, the finer points of contract law in Essos, and the altruism of the Tyrells. Plus, a super sized mailbag and the promise of another next week! If you’ve been waiting until the last moment to get in on A.Ron’s book Kickstarter, covering the religions of Westeros and their real life counterparts, now is you time to shine. There’s less than a week left to get exclusive Kickstarter rewards and push the project towards some very cool stretch goals!

 303 – Walk of Punishment | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:13:56

Jim and A.Ron take in the episode “Walk of Punishment” of the third season of HBO’s Game of Thrones. Dany struggles to find a moral middle ground as she strikes a bargain for a massive slave army, Robb struggles with his command, Theon gets a glimmer of hope, Jaime is taught a harsh truth about the value of his family name. See you back next week as our summer re-watch rolls on! Check out the latest on A.Ron’s book Kickstarter! We’ve got stretch goals, and we also did a recent AMA on Reddit’s A Song of Ice and Fire subreddit you may find interesting!

 302 – “Dark Wings, Dark Words” | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:38:02

Jim and A.Ron do a retrospective review of HBO’s Game of Thrones episode, “Dark Wings, Dark Words”, same format, we first do a non-spoiler review then get in depth and spoilery at the end of the podcast. We discuss the Reed children who make their first appearance this episode, analyze Shae and Tyrion’s relationship, fear for Margaery’s life as she tries to dance around the psychotic Joffrey, and catch up with Arya, Jaime, Brienne, and Robb. Thanks for all the great participation this week! Next week we’ll be dealing with an abbreviated mailbag due to our travel plans, but that just means a super sized feedback the week after! Don’t forget, A.Ron it’s not too late to get in on A.Ron’s Kickstarter for the upcoming book about Westerosi religions, “Gods of Thrones!” Leave Us A Review on Apple Podcasts Join the discussion:  Email  |  Forums  |  Facebook  |  Twitter Theme song: Game of Thrones (80’s TV Theme) by Highway Superstar
