    Episode 098: The Desire to be Free

    Episode 098: The Desire to be Free

    In episode 98 the Fingers of Davos explore the most impressive of the free cities:  Pentos, Braavos and Volantis.  These are perhaps the most different cities from each other as you can get.  Braavos, the poster-child of anti-slavery starkly cast against Volantis powered by slaves at a ratio of 5-to-1, with Pentos in between, pretending not to be pro-slavery but embracing everything it entails.  One that denies its Valyrian roots, one that holds itself as the Valyrian standard, and one that embraces its roots, but also fine with mixing with other cultures.  Such a fun set of differences to cover.  We also spend some time in Valyria itself, talking about its current state, and whether it is as dangerous as it seems.
    In three weeks we are moving to a bit of a format change, so get psyched for Davos’ Fingers madness.  Nothing to read on your end, nothing to prep.  We are getting back to ASOIAF proper, with a series of episodes called “What If”.  Specifically in this case: What if Rhaegar had defeated Robert on the Trident?  So get ready for some zany analysis about what would have gone differently had Robert not caved in Rhaegar’s chest.
    We love to hear from fans that worship at the altar of George.  So find and like us on Facebook, or check out our tumblr at davosfingers.com.  We can also be found on twitter @davosfingers or through email at wearedavosfingers@gmail.com.  Lastly, if you feel like supporting the cast, check out our Patreon through patreon.com/davosfingers.  
    Selection Covered:  most of the content from this episode comes from The World of Ice and Fire.  We are covering everything from Pentos on page 266 through the section on Braavos, ending on page 276.  But there is some additonal coverage on Valyria that comes from TWOIAF and other general knowledge from the series at large. Spoilers beware.

    Episode 097: Free Cities aren't free (they cost a buck 'o five)

    Episode 097: Free Cities aren't free (they cost a buck 'o five)

    In this episode, the Fingers start exploring the Free Cities.  We wander the mazes of Lorath, try to avoid the lumber-rich mysterious forest of Qohor, and ascend the Sinner’s Steps in Norvos.  But this episode isn’t complete without a tour of the Quarrelsome Daughters. Myr, Lys, and Tyrosh are near mirror images of each other, but can’t get along, we talk about that too.
    Catch us in three weeks as we finish off our coverage of the Free Cities, including a quick look at the queen jewel herself, Valyria.  After that, we are gonna mix it up a bit with a return to ASoIaF, but not, perhaps, in the way you are used to.  Stay tuned.
    Please, please, please, drop us an email or a tweet or a facebook comment.  We love to hear from people that love A Song of Ice and Fire.  We can be found all over the net of inter @davosfingers on twitter, wearedavosfingers@gmail.com, on our tumblr at davosfingers.com, or on Facebook just search for Davos’ Fingers.  Finally, if you want to check out our Patreon, you can do so at patreon.com/davosfingers. 
    Selection Covered: The World of Ice and Fire pages 252 through 265.  But as has been the case for some time, we will wonder all over the canon in this episode, so watch out!

    Episode 096: Beware: Butterflies!

    Episode 096: Beware: Butterflies!

    We traverse the southern portions of the map in Episode 96.  From The Summer Isles to Sothoryos and everything in between with deadly butterflies, wyverns, and pirate towns galore.  We also head north to mainland Essos, to look at the Dothraki Sea and its current and prior residents.  Lastly.  Ahem. Dragonbone.
    Our dutiful coverage of The World of Ice and Fire continues as we plunge into our second episode on that material.  And we are gonna keep going.  We are tackling the Free Cities for the next couple episodes, starting with Lorath.  So read up!

    Episode 095: Asshai Where the Shadows Lie

    Episode 095: Asshai Where the Shadows Lie

    The Fingers of Davos gain a third tonight as Chloe of Girls Gone Canon joins the cast to talk The World of Ice and Fire.  Our first episode covering this tome, and it is a doozy.  From the Shivering Seas frozen in legend to the mystical walkers of the Ifeqevron, the Fingers (and Chloe) dive into some of the lesser known parts of Essos.  Then they cross the Bone Mountains and explore the empire of Yi-Ti and east to Asshai by the Shadow.  Not much is known of these strange lands by the Maesters of the Citadel, but speculation from the Fingers is not in short supply.
    We have started our coverage of The World of Ice and Fire.  As is our wont, we are doing it a little differently.  We were very excited to jump ALL the way East, so we started at the end and will work our way back for a bit.  We will be working our way back for the next episode including coverage of the Dothraki!  So check back in 3 weeks!
    If you would like to reach out and touch us, please do!  We are always eager to hear from George’s fans.  We can be found all over the place.  @davosfingers on Twitter is our most frequent haunt.  But we can be found on Facebook, at wearedavosfingers@gmail.com, on our website at www.davosfingers.com.  If you want to suppor the Fingers on Patreon check out patreon.com/davosfingers!
    Selection Covered:  Everything in this episode (outside of speculation) can be found within The World of Ice and Fire from The Shivering Sea (page 294) through the end of the Asshai-By-The-Shadow section (page 309) and also the end of the book.

    Episode 094: Targaryen Family Values

    Episode 094: Targaryen Family Values

    In Episode 94 we get into some good old-fashioned family values...well, Targaryen Family Values. They are a little different.  Highlights Include:  drunken midnight rides through the city, kissing clubs, uncles that are younger than their nephews, ostracization, forced marriage.  Also in this episode is more deaths, especially in the birthing bed, but more births also...uh...from the birthing bed.  And as it does for us all, death comes for Alysanne and Jaehaerys. We also answer some questions from Bloodriders and play a fun Targaryen Name Game.  Enjoy!
    Episode 94 also brings our coverage of Fire and Blood to an end.  We will be moving on to cover hand-picked sections of The World of Ice and Fire, starting with the section titled The Bones and Beyond.  So check back here in 3 weeks for the start of another fun adventure!
    Send us some mail!  We love to hear from George’s fans about all things ASOIAF and beyond. You can find us at wearedavosfingers@gmail.com,  on twitter @davosfingers, you can find us and like us on Facebook, or check out davosfingers.com for our Tumblr site.  Lastly, if you want to support us by becoming a Patron, check out patreon.com/davosfingers.
    Selection Covered: Everything in this episode can be found in Fire and Blood.  Specifically within the sections “The Long Reign” (pg 302) through “Heirs of the Dragon” (pg. 351).

    Episode 093: Good Queen Alysanne

    Episode 093: Good Queen Alysanne

    The boys forge ahead through Fire and Blood in Episode 093:  Good Queen Alysanne.  In this episode Jaehaerys and Alysanne face tragedy as the Shivers bear down on Westeros.  They also make a progress up north where the winter’s cold and Alaric’s hospitality is the same.  Also, Alysanne flexes on her husband to end a sacred right to the Lords of Westeros, while Jaehaerys uses some windfalls of capital to improve infrastructure for his Kingdom.
    In this episode we wanted to mention that we had a few audio issues in our recording.  In truth Matt was a hero in salvaging some spots.  We regret this departure from our normal level of quality and thank the Khalasar for their understanding.
    This is our second to last episode of Fire and Blood as our bizarre journey through that tome winds to an end. After we polish that off, we will be jumping straight into some more ASOIAF, hand-picking sections from The World of Ice and Fire.  As is our custom, we aren’t going to make it easy, actually starting with the section called  “The Bones and Beyond”, which covers lands to the East, like Asshai. We will be hand selecting other selections as we go.
    If you want to send us some ravenmail, we can be found in lots of places on the scary web. wearedavosfingers@gmail.com, on twitter @davosfingers, you can find us and like us on Facebook, or check out davosfingers.com for our Tumblr site.  Lastly, if you want to support us by becoming a Patron, check out patreon.com/davosfingers.
    Selection Covered:  The selection we will cover in this episode can be found in FIRE AND BLOOD: “Jaehaerys and Alysanne - Their Triumphs and Tragedies” (pg 253) through “The Long Reign” (pg 302).
