    Episode 136: A CLASH OF KINGS, CATELYN VII: "The Dark Knight (Part 2)

    Episode 136: A CLASH OF KINGS, CATELYN VII: "The Dark Knight (Part 2)

    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, Catelyn riddles in the dark with Gollum/Jaime and discovers the horrible truth behind the backstory.
     
    This week, we: 
     

    - Talk about the rules of the game and how playing this game demonstrates the arrested development of these Robert's Rebellion-era characters
    - Gape at Jaime for his casual admissions of truth and how Jaime is denying Catelyn catharsis with his admissions
    - Talk about vows and how it displays the rotten system of Westeros
    - Get our eyes opened specifically to the type of king that Jaime kingslayed
    - Sympathize with Jaime (of all people) because even when he tells the truth to Catelyn, she dismisses him as a kinslayer.
    - Debate about whether Catelyn was correct to release Jaime for Sansa.
     
    Next week: We're back in Winterfell with Theon as he continues to rule justly and nobly ... or makes a botch of it while having nightmares and getting owned by his sister again. And we'll be joined by a brand new special guest: Alisha Benton!|

    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!

good podcast ok

Satisfied reply guy

I’ve been replying to both of their tweets for the past three or four years and they’ve faved and retweeted them occasionally. Flattery works. 5 stars.

Great Podcast

This podcast is amazing and my favorite thing is when you discuss the fantasy tropes and how they are either subverted or used. The one thing that makes me incredibly uncomfortable is the way you discuss SanSan. I’m a teenage girl only a couple of years older than Sansa so hearing adults that think that relationship is romantic in any way really grosses me out. When you get to the Blackwater scene with Sansa and Sandor, please consider that this is a grown man holding a knife to a 12 year old girl’s throat. I love Sansa and she’s my favorite character so please acknowledge what makes SanSan inappropriate. I love pretty much every other part of your podcast and your empathy for every character is appreciated.
