“Observatory Note: Nymeria still has not been found. To be showing up later on, I’m sure. I can’t wait for that. She’s gonna show up right at a good time when we need her. So, let’s just make a little note.”
Ned III – Catelyn IV
In this 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 Ned III, Bran III, and Catelyn IV in A Game of Thrones. Gail gets sick to her stomach over the deaths of Lady and Mycah the butcher’s boy, is hopeful about seeing Bran become a seer, and is NOT convinced that Tyrion is behind the attempt on Bran’s life.
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).
