  2. Loved this episode. Mimi is always insightful about Dunk and Egg and it made me want to go back and read the novellas. Plus I just got my all new print edition of Flight of Sorrows. But my personal highlight were the hilarious ads at the end, especially Valkryst.

    Great episode everyone. About summerhall, we get the impression from most characters that the targaryens were trying to hatch dragons and instead burned the castle down with themselves in it. But in one of Barristan’s chapters in aDwD, he mentions that it had more to do with Egg and his sons marrying for love instead of for alliances and that prince duncan’s setting aside the crown for jenny of oldstones culminated in the tragedy of summerhall. So there could definitely be sabotage involved.
    And when a castle burns down it’s not the stone burning but everything inside it (tapestries, curtains, drapes and the rushes on the floor) and the walls just collapse from the heat.

    This is probably the best episode of all time, simply due to the fact that Amin compared the recent trend of frying turkey to tragedy at Summerhall. So hilarious. Great job on the podcast.
