Episode 135 for the week of February 16th, in which VOK guest hosts Katie and Michal fill in to help host Stefan Sasse, co-host of the Boiled Leather Audio Hour, Lord of the Nerdstream Era, and author of It is Known: Season 3 Deconstructed. We discuss one of Stefan’s upcoming contributions to Tower of the Hand: A Hymn for Spring, specifically his essay The Patriarchs of Westeros: Examining the toll the great lords exact from their families, their smallfolk, and from progress. We also cover chapters 52 (Jon VI) and 54 (Jon VII) of A Clash of Kings.
Notes: Stefan’s essay is currently available at Amazon, as it is included as part of Remy Verhoeve’s Waiting for Winter: Re-Reading A Clash of Kings, published by Blue Buddha Media. The eagle video can be found on youtube. In other news, Ashley‘s computer has been repaired: she and the other hosts will be returning in full force in March.
