VoK 432 – The Criminal Trial Of OJ Simpson For The Murder Of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman


rehost-2016-9-13-cd95c588-1538-4f20-9ebe-a114d64de09c

With slightly quixotic timing, Bina007 and Julia/NoTrueLady discuss their reactions to the 1995 criminal trial of OJ Simpson for the murder of his wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman.  We also discuss the recent TV series American Crime Story: The People vs OJ Simpson and the Oscar winning documentary OJ: Made In America.

VoK 430 – Jaime’s Return & Tyrion’s Trial – The Great Linear ASOIAF Reread Episode 55


2D274905852139-140514-ent-tyrion-tease.today-inline-large2x

In this episode we cover the start of Tyrion’s trial and the return of Jaime to King’s Landing, in Tyrion 9 and Jaime 7 from A Storm of Swords.  Your hosts are Bina007, Adam/DrownedSnow, Casey/Blue-Eyed-Queen, Glen/DagosRivers, Michal/Inkasrain, Nadia and Patrick/SerPatrickTheTall.

These events cover the period from the 7th January 300 AL to the 13th January. In particular, the hosts have been discussing the Redditor who invented the Linear Timeline’s decision to put the Tyrion 9 chapter before the Jaime chapter. The reason is that the Tyrion chapter starts a day before Jaime’s return to King’s Landing, even though the events go passed that by some way.

Another thing we’d like to say before we start is that the events in Jaime 7 are both controversial and sensitive within the fandom.  Listeners who may be triggered by a hopefully sensitive but nonetheless frank discussion of rape in fiction are advised to exercise self-care and judgment before listening.
