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.

Video Podcast of HBO’s Game of Thrones, Season 6 Episode 1, “The Red Woman”

And we’re back! Apologies for the first 30 seconds or so where we’re discussing whether we’re recording, obviously we’re a bit rusty – and next week, this’ll come out much sooner than Friday. But here’s what we thought of the episode:


Battle of Blackwater Extravaganza Continues: Bonus Podcast

Hey folks, work on the Battle of Blackwater Week Fortnight Extravaganza continues: Tyrion XIV is up to 3,300 words and I’ve just got Tyrion onto the bridge, and Sansa VII is also in the works ready for the finale. So at the very least, we’ll celebrate New Years’ with some wildfire fireworks!

In the meantime, enjoy this bonus podcast with me and Aziz from History of Westeros Podcast:

Battle of Blackwater Fortnight Update


Hey folks! Just a quick update, now that we’ve hit the half-way point on the Battle of Blackwater. First things first, I hit a bit of a health snag on Friday that kind of ate up the entire day and will do the same on Monday and probably one other day next week. Which means that the schedule I optimistically set out at the beginning of the week is definitely going to slip.

Make no mistake, I’m still going to finish what I started. Tyrion XIII is up to 3,000 words, Sansa VI is partially written, and the quotes have been added in to Tyrion XIV and Sansa VII. Those are all going to get written, but somewhat slower than originally intended. Likewise, the bonus podcast and the live Season 2, Episode 9 rewatch are still going to happen, but the timing might be a bit thrown off.

In the meantime, please enjoy this blast from the past, the LG&M Podcast episode on “Blackwater”:

Guest Appearance on History of Westeros: The Battle of Redgrass Field

Aziz, SomethingLikeaLawyer, and I are back with another installment of the History of Westeros Podcast‘s series on the Blackfyre Rebellions. (You can find the previous episode on Daemon Blackfyre here) This time, we’re getting hardcore into military history, with a full examination of the 1st Blackfyre Rebellion and its most climactic battle. Enjoy!
