Welcome to MegaPod, the Ulysses of podcasts about fantasy novels.
I took a week off to go to sunny Mexico, so Brad and I had to play catch-up: inside, you’ll find discussions on episodes 6 and 7 (“A Golden Crown” and “You Win or You Die”) of the HBO series A Game of Thrones as well as chapters 40 through 60 of A Clash of Kings.
After two-and-a-half hours, my brain began to denature, so I don’t have a pithy summary at hand. I do remember comparing George R. R. Martin to Gustave Flaubert and James Joyce, though, which may be a bit of literary over-reach, even if they all use free indirect discourse.
In any case, if you can stomach my undeniable twattyness as well as Brad does, I think (hope!) you’ll find a weighty podcast.
Be sure to check us out on iTunes, the Zune Marketplace, or the handy-dandy link below. If you’re dutifully reading along, you have a relatively light load before our next episode: please wrap up A Clash of Kings and read the first ten (short) chapters of A Storm of Swords.
