Non-ASOIAF Content: Talking People’s History of the Marvel Universe with Elana at Graphic Policy Radio

As long-time readers know, I write an essay series over at Graphic Policy where I look at the intersection of history, politics, and pop culture in the Marvel Universe. Recently, I sat down with my friend Elana over at Graphic Policy Radio to talk about the series – past, present, and future – and it was a really fun conversation.

Take a listen!

Guest Appearance on Ranking Thrones

Hey, folks! A couple of weeks ago, I recorded another podcast with JSLAL and James Kelly at Ranking Thrones, where we compared the first Blackfyre Rebellion and Robert’s Rebellion, to tease out why one succeeded and the other failed.

Guest Appearance on Ranking Thrones

Hey folks! Work on the second Dunk & Egg essay continues – I’m up to 3,800 words and still going strong – but in the mean-time, I’ve got something fun for you to listen to while I work on finishing up the essay. A couple weeks ago, I recorded a podcast with James Kelly and JSLAL (of WarsofASOIAF fame) over at Ranking Thrones, where we discussed the Blackfyre Rebellion in some detail, since I’ve got that particular conflict on the brain at the moment.

Non-ASOIAF Content: Talking Venture Brothers with Elana @ Graphic Policy Radio

Venture Bros. Wrapup: “Operation: P.R.O.M.” | grayflannelsuit.net

As longtime readers will remember, I used to do a podcast about the Venture Brothers with my friend and colleague Elana Levin over at Graphic Policy.

Since we’re all stuck indoors (and we’re still waiting on Season 8 to come out), Elana and I thought it would be fun to do a podcast about a classic VB episode. Our Twitter poll decided that we should cover the Season 4 finale episode, “Operation P.R.O.M,” and so we did.

Guest Appearance on Boiled Leather Audio Hour

The Boiled Leather Audio Hour

Hey folks! While we’re all stuck indoors for a good while, you know what’s a good way to pass the time? Listening to some podcasts.

So here’s a good long conversation I had with Stefan Sasse about the Iron Bank and medieval finance, and whether Marxist theory is applicable to Westeros.

Livestream with History of Westeros!

Hey folks! In about a half hour, I’m going to do a livestream with the History of Westeros folks, finishing up our discussion of the War of Ninepenny Kings.

So if you’re around, hop on and chat with us.

Classic Podcasting: Graphic Policy Roundtable on the MLK/Malcolm X Analogy in X-Men

So way back when, I participated in a roundtable podcast on the problems with the Xavier = MLK, Magneto = Malcolm X analogy in the broader X-Men commentariat. It turned out to be a rather more significant podcast than I had thought, because the research I did for the podcast directly inspired my People’s History of the Marvel Universe series.

Graphic Policy Radio re-released the podcast today, with updated and cleaned-up audio, so have a listen!

Guest Appearance on Ranking Thrones

This time on Ranking Thrones, we discuss Daemon Blackfyre, who I wrote quite a bit about here and here.

Have a listen!

Livestream with History of Westeros!

Hey folks! In about a half hour, I’m going to do a livestream with the History of Westeros folks, talking about that seminal generational event, the War of Ninepenny Kings, and how it influenced the lives of the Baelishes, Tullys, Arryns, Baratheons, Lannisters, Starks, and so many more!

So if you’re around, hop on and chat with us.

Guest Appearance on the Notacast Podcast

Continuing our discussion of the difficulties of governance, in this episode we examine the Starks’ efforts to mobilize the Northern home front: how Winterfell works as a planning agency for surviving the long winters, the difficulties that come when the Stark-in-Winterfell is a child and his advisors aren’t quite up for the task, and how the Hornwood Crisis reveals the hidden complexities of Northern feudal politics.

So join us for an exhaustive though never exhausting discussion.
