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!

Boars, Gore, and Swords Logo

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.

Guest Appearance on Boars, Gore, and Swords

Hey folks! After a Twitter conversation last night, Red Scott of Boars, Gore, and Swords and I decided to do an impromptu podcast talking about historical timelines of both real-world medieval Europe and Game of Thrones.

If you’d like to listen, it’s available on their Patreon feed here. Check it out!

(As a Patron of Boars, Gore, and Swords myself, I would definitely say it’s worth a couple bucks a month to get their advance and bonus content. However, if you don’t have the scratch at the moment, a lot of what we talk about is covered in my History Remixed essay and my Laboratory of Politics series.)

Guest Appearance on History of Westeros Podcast: The Golden Company

As you know, I’ve been doing a collaborative series of podcasts on the Blackfyres with the History of Westeros Podcast: in previous episodes, we’ve covered Aegon IV, Daeron II, Daemon Blackfyre, the First Blackfyre Rebellion, and Bittersteel. In this episode, we take a look at Aegon “Bittersteel” Rivers and the Golden Company he founded:


Guest “Appearance” on History of Westeros Podcast

Hey folks! As you know if you’ve been following the blog, I’ve been doing a series of guest appearances on History of Westeros Podcast as part of their coverage of the Blackfyres. I don’t actually appear in this episode, but I helped with the writing and research and I’ll be appearing in the next episode on the Golden Company itself, so I thought I’d throw this up so you have context for that part.

In other news, I’m making good progress both through my manuscript and Part III of Politics of the Seven Kingdoms, so don’t worry, I’m not going anywhere.

Talking Game of Thrones Season 6 With PoorQuentyn

As discussed on Twitter, PoorQuentyn and I decided to do an impromptu podcast to talk about Season 6 of HBO’s Game of Thrones as a whole. Here you go:

Apologies for the sound quality being a bit echoey; I’m very new to the technical side of podcasting and there’s a bit of a learning curve.
