“I cannot wait for [Viserys] to take on Khal Drogo, because he is gonna eat shit and die.”
Tyrion I – Ned II
In this brand new Game of Thrones podcast from Tubby & Coo’s Mid-City Book Shop in New Orleans, host Candice Huber discusses the Song of Ice and Fire series along with her mom, Gail, who is reading it for the first time and has absolutely no knowledge of Game of Thrones.
In this episode, Candice and Gail discuss Tyrion I, Jon II, Daenerys II, and Ned II in A Game of Thrones. Gail experiences her favorite moment of the series thus far when Tyrion smacks Joffrey in the face TWICE, feels the love for Jon Snow and Khal Drogo, hopes Viserys eats shit and dies, and gains a disdain for Robert. And surely, there will be dragons, right? RIGHT?
If you’re a fan, listen to re-meet your favorite characters and to gain a new perspective from, as Gail puts it, “a total Game of Thrones virgin.” And if you’re in the same boat as Gail and also know nothing about ASOIAF, this is your chance to get caught up on the story with someone who is just as new to it as you are.
Read along, listen along, and follow Gail’s journey through the series as she discovers for the first time just how brutal it can be. When you read Game of Thrones with your mom, you win or you die (laughing).
