Welcome to the Game of Thrones Book Club, the Post Show Recaps podcast that talks about HBO’s Emmy-winning series from the perspective of those who have read George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire novels and related material. You are listening and proceeding further at your own risk.
This week, Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Terri Schwartz (@Terri_Schwartz) kick things off not with the show, but with the books. They’re discussing GRRM’s release of a new sample chapter from The Winds of Winter, the as-yet unpublished sixth book in the ASOIAF series, told from the perspective of Arianne Martell. Josh and Terri talk about some story ramifications from the chapter, the language used in the chapter, and read their favorite passages. The conversation lasts about 20 minutes for those who are looking only for show discussion.
After the talk about the sample chapter, Josh and Terri dive into the Tower of Joy, R+L=J ramifications, Bran’s time travel powers, Cleganebowl hype, Rickon’s return and the Great Northern Conspiracy, and more.
