The Battle of the Trident

The Battle of the Trident

Breaking down the importance, details, participants and impact of the decisive battle during Robert's Rebellion. From Jon Connington to Dany to Barristan to almost every Stark and most of the Lannister POV's, not to mention non-POV's who were there like Wyman Manderly, Roose Bolton and Elder Brother, we have a lot of accounts of what happened that day... but also quite a few mysteries, and several instances of dreams and prophecies which refer to it.

The Testimony of Mushroom

The Testimony of Mushroom

We are joined by Dr. Kavita Mudan Finn for an episode on Mushroom. The man, the myth, the legend...emphasis on myth and legend! This 'Mushroom-isode' is a discussion on sources - both the veracity of the tales and speculation on the existence and life of Mushroom, supposed chronicler of The Testimony of Mushroom, and the source of some of the events in House of the Dragon.

The Buildings of Brandon (video)

The Buildings of Brandon (video)

Long-gone Legends are less certain than structures that still stand. But how were they built in the first place? Why did giants work with humans? Were they forced? If so... how? This episode stretches from the Wall to Storm's End and spans characters ranging from Night King to Sandor Clegane, from ancient Starks to current ones, and not just Bran. This is another collab with Crowfood's Daughter! (the Disputed Lands on YouTube). For members only and also available on Patreon.

Prince Aemon the Dragonknight (Part 2)

Prince Aemon the Dragonknight (Part 2)

The story of Prince Aemon the Dragonknight was too big for us to fit in one episode, but he wasn't too big for the cage that House Wyl put him in... which is where we left you hanging, with Aemon hanging over that pit of vipers. In this episode we discuss his rescue, and his rescue of his rescuer. This is his time as Lord Commander of the Kingsguard, the era of King Baelor the Blessed, then Aemon's own father King Viserys II, then his unworthy brother Aegon IV with his beloved sister Naerys as Queen... and finally, his heroic death.

A king who conquered and then lost Dorne. Then lost his life trying to re-take it... but managed to write a book that is still studied today all before turning 19. A short but intense and compelling reign of only 4 years, he has many parallels to Aegon the Conqueror, the Young Wolf, and Young Griff. Featuring Prince Aemon the Dragonknight, Oakenfist, and a certain bed of scorpions...

Re-edited and re-organized: the Daenerys chapters from Valar Rereadis, all together. No banter, no ads, nothing but Dany! Given how huge ASOIAF is, going through the series reading only one POV at a time is a great way to absorb and immerse yourself in a particular character's story. We also have timestamps listed below in case you want to skip around. As of August 2022, one of these will release every Thursday for the foreseeable future. We'll go all the way through Dany in ADWD, then "we should start back" to the beginning with a different POV. I - The One with the Marriage Pact aka the Gang Meets Drogo II - The One where Dany Gets Married aka the Gang Goes to a Dothraki Wedding (19:47) III - The One where Dany Makes Viserys Walk aka the Gang Hits the Dothraki Sea (40:52) IV - The Gang Goes to Vaes Dothrak aka the One where Dany Hits Viserys (1:02:03) V - The One where Dany Eats a Horse Heart aka the Gang Crowns Viserys (1:17:53) VI - The One with the Poison Wineseller aka the Khal Promises to Lead the Gang to Westeros (1:35:25)
