Guest Appearance on the Notacast…Podcast

This week, I have a special treat for you: BryndenBFish and PoorQuentyn were kind enough to invite me onto their podcast to discuss one of my favorite chapters in A Game of Thrones, Eddard XI. Join us as we discuss medieval power politics, the posthumous reputations of Ned Stark and Tywin Lannister, and many other topics.

You can listen above or wherever you download your podcasts.


RFTIT Tumblr Weekly(ish) Roundup (Part I)

One of the unintended consequences of taking a long time to finish an essay – the Maurice Druon essay is up to about 1000 words, btw – is that a lot of Tumblr stuff piles up in the mean time. So just eye-balling it, I’m guessing that it’s going to take more than one post to clear my backlog. Speaking of which…



Non-ASOIAF Content Corner: Avengers Infinity War Edition

So a whole lot of people went to go see Avengers: Infinity War over the weekend, and I was one of them so that I could discuss the film with the good folks at Graphic Policy Radio. We talk about the movie for about an hour and a half, and we get very, very spoilery. So definitely give a listen only if you’ve seen the film and follow comic book movie news, or if you don’t care about spoilers at all.

And now in Non-ASOIAF News: Guest Appearance on Graphic Policy Radio

Hey folks, I’m talking live about the history of Marvel Comics over at Graphic Policy Radio!

In Non-ASOIAF News…a Primer on Unions for Season 2 of the Wire

So a while back, I offered my expertise as a labor scholar and former labor activist to my friend Natasha of Unspoiled! as she was going through Season 2 of the Wire, and wrote up a primer document explaining the various references to unions and labor law for that season. When the season was complete, we posted a Dropbox link so that people listening to the podcast could read along. Unfortunately, the Dropbox link seems to have failed, so I decided to host the document here as well so that people can access it if they’d like.

Guest Appearance on Bores, Gore, and Swords!

After some vigorous Twitter DM debating, Ivan and Red from Boars, Gore, and Swords invited me on their podcast to talk about why they’re wrong about Robert’s Rebellion, what we think about fan theories as suggested by Twitter, and who we think will be alive at the end of HBO’s Game of Thrones.

Guest Appearance on Unspoiled!

Hey folks! After a long time, I’m finally guest podcasting over at Unspoiled. In this episode, I join Natasha, Roshawn, and Miles to talk about the finale of Season 7 and try to stump Miles (who doesn’t watch the show) in an elaborate multiple choice quiz.

Fair warning, this episode is Patrons-only, so if you’re a Patron of Unspoiled you should check it out.

Race for the Iron Throne Featured on Vassals of Kingsgrave

The good people over at the Vassals of Kingsgrave podcast have a new episode out covering Tower of the Hand: A Hymn for Spring and analyzing some of the essays within. My own essay, “Machiavellianism for a Purpose” is one of the essays discussed, starting at 4:57.

Have a listen!

Non-ASOIAF News: Guest Appearance on Graphic Policy Radio, “The Problem with HydraCap”

As many of you who read my non-ASOIAF content know, I have capital-V views on Captain America. This evening at 10PM, I’ll be discussing those views and the current mess that is Marvel’s handling of Captain America over on Graphic Policy Radio. So those of you who’ve been sending me Tumblr asks about Secret Empire, you might want to tune in…which you can do below the fold.
