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!
And now the end is here, as Jim and A.Ron sign off on a fantastic season of Game of Thrones with a season four extravaganza. We give our overall opinions on S4, talk about how it stacks up to previous seasons, wrap up some loose ends, do an in depth look at key differences between the books and the series in an effort to gain background information and a deeper appreciation of both, and consider listener feedback. Then A.Ron hosts a final spoiler segment, discussion previous tin foil theories as well as talking about casting and potential plot points for season five!
Jim and A.Ron go all out talking about the season 4 finale of Game of Thrones, episode 410, “The Children”. In what turned out to be a behemoth, two and a half hour extravaganza, they boys discuss the merits of mounted cavalry versus untrained foot soldiers, whether the tree cave was more LotRy or Fraggle Rocky, who had Arya’s best interests at heart, what’s worse; a punch to the nuts or a savage kick to the vagoo, and finally, just how Effed in the Bee is Westeros at the close of this season? All this, plus a ton of feedback, and A.Ron tries to talk book readers off their ledge in the spoiler section. Don’t forget, we come back next week for an epic season four wrap up cast! Have something you still need to get off your chest, send it in!
Jim and A.Ron talk about all the things they liked, and a few things they didn’t, about Game of Thrones episode 409, “The Watchers on the Wall”. We discuss just the tips, guyliner, various ways to assault a 700 foot wall, badasses with meat cleavers, and much more. All this, plus your feedback, and our spoiler section with a new “tinfoil theory” of the week!
