The one true A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE Re-Read Podcast by PoorQuentyn and BryndenBFish

    Episode 132: A CLASH OF KINGS, SANSA IV: "Smoke on the Water"

    Episode 132: A CLASH OF KINGS, SANSA IV: "Smoke on the Water"

    Hello and welcome back to the NotACast, the one true chapter-by-chapter podcast going through A Song of Ice and Fire one chapter a week!
     
    In this episode, everything is on fire and all Sansa wants is someone trustworthy to talk to, but instead she has Dontos, Sandor, and Cersei. Oh, and in case all that wasn’t enough, she just got her first period.
     
    This week, we: 
     

    - Watch with Sansa as the smoke rises from Stannis burning the kingswood and Tyrion burning the suburbs of King's Landing
    - See how Sansa is responding as a disappointed romantic to Dontos and his promises of salvation
    - Get deep into Sandor Clegane's relationship to Sansa as the dark mirror to Sansa's disappointed romanticism.
    - Empathize with Sansa as she menstruates for the first time and what that means for her as she's hauled in front of Cersei
    - Explore Tyrion's pre-battle planning and praise Tyrion for his tactics even as Sansa remains our POV for the coming battle and has a unique POV on things to come
    Next week: We're up in the Frostfangs with Jon, Qhorin & co as they strive forward to discover what the wildlings are up to, only to find out that the eagle has landed. And we'll be joined by Stefan Sasse of the Boiled Leather Audio Hour as special guest for this episode!

    In this episode, Jon joins Qhorin Halfhand and his A-Team as they go after wildling spies...only for Jon to immediately get a crush on one.
     
    This week, we: 
     

    - Contrast the competence of Qhorin & Co with what we've seen of the Night's Watch so far
    - Plunge into the new setting of the Frostfangs
    - Break down Jon's ethical crisis with Ygritte
    - Explore the layers of the Bael the Bard story

    Episode 128: A CLASH OF KINGS, DAENERYS IV: "House of Leaves (Part 3)"

    Episode 128: A CLASH OF KINGS, DAENERYS IV: "House of Leaves (Part 3)"

    Hello and welcome back to the NotACast, the one true chapter-by-chapter podcast going through A Song of Ice and Fire one chapter a week!
     
    In this episode, Dany wanders through the House of the Undying and soaks in some visions of wonder and terror.
     
    This week, we: 
     

    - Talk about the monster coming for Daenerys, mythology, the Others, Dany herself
    - Analyze how the warlocks and Undying are appeals to authority to keep Dany in the HoTU
    - Unpack and theorize on what the different visions means (treasons and brides)
    - Watch the Undying be put to the lie that they are. They can die.
    - Answer the question: Does the ASOIAF fandom prefer theories to analysis and does that hinder our enjoyment of the books?
    Next week: We're back in King's landing with Tyrion getting ready for the king's arrival and the Battle of the Blackwater.
