Valar Rereadis: TWOIAF - The Kingdom of Sarnor
A kingdom dominated by corrupt nobles who ignore an existential threat while fighting each other... sound familiar? A realm that finds itself suddenly confronted with a huge mass of Dothraki united under one leader... sound familiar? An ancient culture's history and art burned by people from a culture that values destruction... sound familiar? The story of the Kingdom of Sarnor is powered by parallels to The Seven Kingdoms, while also a story all its own. From the Silver Sea to the Sarne and the vast grasslands around them. Features a section on HP Lovecraft's "The Doom that Came to Sarnath". www.patreon.com/historyofwesteros historyofwesteros.threadless.com Nina: goodqueenaly.tumblr.com Sean's YouTube: bit.ly/3818H9X www.historyofwesteros.com

Religion & Magic: Weirwood Tour (2014)
The episode features themes of blood and ancestry, as weirwoods tend to be inextricably tied to the surrounding area, both physically and culturally. Given the broad scope of this topic, quite a variety of related subjects come up. Heart tree-murdering Melisandre makes an appearance or two, the Wall is discussed as well as several members of House Stark and some very out of the way places you've barely heard of. We go from Beyond the Wall to the far south, considering not just where the weirwoods are, but where they might have been in the past. Given that there are so many places left unseen in the story, we make educated guesses where other trees might be. This isn't just about where the trees are, though. The absence of weirwoods can be as conspicuous as the most grotesque Heart Tree face. Published April 6, 2014.

Queer Women of Ice & Fire (Con Panel Audio)
Thanks to Fire and Blood, we finally have a wide variety of canonically queer female characters. Alongside gushing about faves, we’ll talk the pros and cons of subtle vs explicit representation, the value of representation of queer female sexuality in Martin’s work, and any troublesome implications of specific character arcs. This panel is primarily book-focused, but we won’t leave the show behind! We’re here, we’re queer, and we’re ready to talk queer ladies in ASOIAF!  Panelists: Ash, Archmaester Aemma, Melanie Lot Seven, and Yoshi Targaryen.

Edited audio from the livestream on July 27th 2019. Sean, Ash and Aziz discuss book and show Battle of the Blackwater (mostly book, Sean had just finished when we recorded). It's still the biggest battle in the books (6 POV chapters), and the first one HBO put on full display in Season 2 Episode 9. In the 2nd half, we chat Nashville/Con of Thrones 2019. We met Jerome Flynn (Bronn), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime), the Wolf and the Crows and others while also hanging with fun people like Binge Mode and the elusive Alt Shift X.
