    For anybody else that’s confused about the convo around the hour mark, the name put forth is “Quaithe” (the red masked woman who warns Dany about the perfumed senescal). There is no discussion about who that character is at all and I kept hearing “Queef.” I was pretty sure that was wrong…

    I’ve read all the books twice and still don’t remember all the minor characters! It took about 20 minutes of searching to figure it out, hopefully I’ve saved someone else some time and frustration.

      Did we really pronounce it like that? AWKWARD.

      • Terri Schwartz

        I think I pronounced it “Quay-th,” but that could be the wrong pronunciation. Also should have elaborated more. But shame on me if it came out sounding like “queef.” AWKWARDx2.

    FYI, Diana Rigg (and possibly her stand-in?) have been spotted filming in King’s Landing. So I think we’re alright there. Also next episode you should briefly touch upon the fact that Mace Tyrell and Meryn Trant were filming with Tycho Nestoris is Braavos. Possibly a revised version of the “Mercy” chapter?

    With respect to GRRM “Beyonceing” everyone. I always secretly hoped he was already done TWoW, was writing ADoS and would drop both at the same time before the TV show caught up. But there were a number of interviews with some his editors last year that led me to believe he’s just slow and we won’t be getting anything for a while.

    Now all I’m hoping for is TWoW to released before season 6 airs, and I’ll have to avoid the filming spoilers next year.

    Season 7 is going to be a gong show. Unless GRRM actually stops writing ADoS and takes a year to work with D&D to make sure they get it as close as possible to how he plans to write it.

    Love the podcast but you guys need to speed up the 10 minute Spoiler Alert warnings in these book club pod casts. A simple disclaimer off the top would be sufficient.

      I think Josh enjoys making them longer and longer each time. Plus side: No one has ever complained about us spoiling anything for them — not even Harry Potter!
