Episode 179: A Hymn for Spring

Episode 179 for the week of June 21st, in which we are joined by Vassals of Kingsgrave curator Katie (Lady Griffin). We cover chapter 14 (Arya II) of A Storm of Swords. We also do a full review of Amin’s essay (Song and Singers of Ice and Fire) from the eBook A Hymn for Spring. We talk about our upcoming A Song of Ice and Fire / Game of Thrones fan panel at San Diego Comic Con 2015: Saturday at 4-5pm, along with our Wednesday night Podcast Listener meetup.

Notes: Like almost all episodes of APOIAF, this episode has spoilers for all published books in George RR Martin’s ASOIAF series. We got into contact with Ashley after this episode: she is having computer issues that will hopefully be resolved soon.

    Katie: Singers seem to get laid a lot.
    Kyle: They also seem to die a lot.

    Over the course of the past few months, this podcast has become intolerable and pretentious. The criticism surrounding the HBO series is frustrating! To further Mimi’s point, the series has now exceeded what we know to be true, and is held up to much more scrutiny. I urge you, if you want the real story read the books – it is known! I too prefer the books a million times over the show, however, I can’t think of any book turned movie where I thought: wow, this was better than the book. Nope! Because it never happens! So please, I beg you guys not to make this a habit come next season. I want to appreciate Planetos plain and simple. Respect the differences and lets enjoy!

    Chronicles of Narnia:L,W & W, better than book imo.

  4. I’ll stick with the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe book, but the Prince Caspian movie was definitely better than the book. The battle scenes were great, Reepicheep was amazing, and they didn’t make the kids wander aimlessly for too long like in the book.

    Good topic! The Godfather and Jaws (two movies way better than the books).

    It’s nice to get back to the good old books.

    And Mimi! I never realised how much I’ve missed you until I heard your voice.
    Welcome back.

    The title Song of Ice and Fire seems a pretty obvious reference to Robert Frost’s poem Fire and Ice.
