    BLAH 110 | The sample chapters: Tyrion II, with Sean T. Collins

    Tyrion II, you ask befuddled? Did I miss Tyrion I? You did not. For reasons we explain in this podast. Don’t worry, it will all become clear in a moment.  But on to the topic! This episode is not about whether Tyrion is a bully or a bad person or whether misogynistic violence really is the best outlet for your own insecurities. It’s really about ethics in mercenary companies.  Find the chapter here and Tyrion I here…or what we have of it.  Download the episode! Our Patreon page at patreon.com/boiledleatheraudiohour.

    We’re taking a break from the usual light-hearted discussions like the one about atrocities and war crimes and go topical: amidst the Corona pandemic, we’re talking about plague and disease in Westeros and our own middle ages. You know, just to take your mind off things. Among the undeniable health risks, we also discuss why plagues generally don’t make for good storytelling and how GRRM employs them. Download the episode!
