Getting ever closer to HBO’s Game of Thrones season 8 premiere, Anthony and A.Ron are back to celebrated a related milestone; the imminent release of Volume 2 of their deep dive into the religions and cultures of Westeros, Gods of Thrones! This follow up to Volume one covers the Faceless Men, The Ironborn, the Dothraki, the Valyrians, and many more topics with tons of historical notes, cultural analogs, fan theories, footnotes, and fun. For this podcast we selected a few points of interest for discussion: How did the Targaryen penchant for incest drive them to conquest? What does a connection to a Tolkien horse god tell us about Daenerys and Daario’s relationship? We ponder these and other nerdy A Song of Ice and Fire topics before considering your feedback!
