VoK 358: VikingCast Aka The Great Linear Re-read Part 34



The reread is back with Vassals Casey (blue-eyed-queen), Patrick (Ser Patrick the Tall), Paul (SerDinnerRoll), Zach (Alias), Alix (Aiwendil), Tanja (Scilens) and Marie (Nymeria).

They discuss the last linear chapter of A Clash of Kings (Tyrion 15), move into A Storm of Swords with Dany being a badass (Dany 2&3), and Arya’s survival skills (Arya 1). And it wouldn’t be a Patrick episode if Vikings didn’t come up.

For listeners playing along at home, the next episode will actually be part 36, covering A Storm of Swords Tyrion 1, Bran 1, Davos 1, and Davos 2. Part 35 will be a discussion of how it’s been rereading the books through A Clash of Kings linearly.

This podcast contains spoilers for all published works of the A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin, but does not contain spoilers for HBO’s show, Game of Thrones.

Aftershow begins at 1 hr 41m
