“Robert took [all the dragon heads] down to put up, like, his froo froo business. Instead of having these awesome dragon heads, you know, to show what a beast you are, right? Now he put up these froo froo things.”
Tyrion II – Sansa I
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 II, Catelyn III, and Sansa I in A Game of Thrones. Gail muses about dragons and gets excited about Dany’s dragon eggs hatching, gives us a brief lecture on how beards are metaphors for penises, and gets nervous that we’ve gone so many pages without a death.
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).
