In a dazzling new series, Jim McGeehin (of Wars of Ice and Fire fame) and I tackle the history of the Weimar Republic. In this issue, we talk about the end of World War I and the revolution that ensued, the Versailles treaty and the escalating violence within Germany as well as trying to assess the chances of democracy. Download the episode! Our Pa…
 
Tyrion II, you ask befuddled? Did I miss Tyrion I? You did not. For reasons we explain in this podast. Don’t worry, it will all become clear in a moment. But on to the topic! This episode is not about whether Tyrion is a bully or a bad person or whether misogynistic violence really is the best outlet for your own insecurities. It’s really about eth…
 
We’re taking a break from the usual light-hearted discussions like the one about atrocities and war crimes and go topical: amidst the Corona pandemic, we’re talking about plague and disease in Westeros and our own middle ages. You know, just to take your mind off things. Among the undeniable health risks, we also discuss why plagues generally don’t…
 
When Tywin tried to legitimize the Red Wedding to Tyrion, he hyperbolically asked whether it was worse to kill a dozen at dinner than thousands in battle. Tyrion doesn’t have a good retort, so I turned to my trusted colleague Jim McGeehin to get a grip on this issue - and the role of atrocities and war crimes in the story in general, while we were …
 
Is there some foreshadowing going on? Will someone die? Is this “A Song of Ice and Fire”? We can answer all of these in affirmative as we take on “Arianne II”, chewing happily through our series analyzing all the preview chapters of TWOW. Follow us through the Rainwood as we accompany Arianne and her merry band not going to their doom at all as she…
 
We delve into Arianne I, the next on our list of sample chapters. It’s “A Game of Forebodings”, a chapter choke-full of predictions, prophecies, foreboding and foreshadowing. And it’s not even a Dany chapter! Rather, the point of reference is Sansa, as you will discover when you listen to this episode of the dynamic duo! Download the episode! Our P…
 
One of our beloved Patreons, going by the awe-inspiring alias of ABCD1234 (sorry, I can’t let a name like that stand without at least some sniping ;)) asked me a question about the financing of the Iron Bank and Marxist thought as an inspiration for narrative analysis. Neither of these is my field of expertise, so I happily obliged. Just kidding! O…
 
It’s been some time since the reimagined Battlestar Galactica, one of the most important TV series of our time, ended its four-season-run. Time enough to invite back Bret Devereaux, with whom I did a great episode on historical realism in GOT half a year ago. Since he wrote about ship design in BSG on his great and recommended blog, he was the perf…
 
Welcome back on our regular circuit, where we talk about all the published sample chapters! This time, we tackle Sansa’s first TWOW chapter, Alayne I. Tackling gives you the right idea, since it’s all about a tourney. Or is it? We discuss the themes, the implications and the heavy plot developments in a chapter that’s as juicy as anything Martin ha…
 
It’s the time of second parters! After I came back to the long promised second episode about the Elections of Ice and Fire with Marcus A. Roberts, it was time to revisit the legal system of Planetos this month. No one could be better suited than Clint Woods, aka Laws of Ice and Fire, to undertake this task. After tackling Westeros in part 1, we’re …
 
It’s our big day. Since 2011, we published 100 episodes proper of the Boiled Leather Audio Hour, aside from 38 Boiled Leather Audio Moments, 11 Boiled Leather Audio Conversations and 25 Boiled Leather Audio Popculture essays. Reason enough to take a step bake and a deep breath and to look at things from a bigger points of view. Things, in this case…
 
With the final movie of the sequel trilogy now out in theaters, Sean and I take a deep dive into “Rise of Skywalker”. It’s not really a spoiler to say we weren’t impressed, but unlike our vivid disagreements about the merits of “The Last Jedi” - which we revisit in the light of this movie and general internet discourse -, we’re in exhaustive (in mo…
 
After we talked about the Night’s Watch, the Faith and the Citadel and their voting mechanisms in the last episode, we’re finally back to tackle other, even tornier election issues. How do the Great Councils of Westeros play out, if they play out? What is the big might have been of 181 AC? How does the Triarchy of Volantis fare on the democracy sca…
 
We’re on it again! After analyzing Theon I last month, we’re now taking an in-depth look at Mercy I. Will the roads of Braavos prove treacherous grounds? Will mercy in the end be delivered, or will all the whores and politicians have their shouts for mercy die away while Arya looks down and whispers “no”? All of this, and more, in the second entry …
 
In a terribly clever title, I invite Clint Woods aka The Laws of Ice and Fire (see what I did there?) to talk about, well, the laws of ice and fire. We start slowly with the narrow and easily answered question of whether there’s a rule of law in Westeros, and we dive deep into the weeds from there on. From inheritance rights to class-based justice,…
 
We’re finally doing it! No one asked for it, others have done it as well, but we’re undaunted by such trifles. The original dynamic duo is at it! We’re taking a deep look at the first released sample chapter, Theon I, of the upcoming “The Winds of Winter”. We make no prediction as to when it will be out, but if it’s anything like this chapter, oh b…
 
I hope you’re all in for a bit into the very nichest of niches, as I draft my co-host Javi Marcos to talk about an obscure 1940s fantasy novel called “The Lord of the Rings”. It was a modest success after its publication in the 1950s and spawned a small but dedicated following. Many people do not know this, but there was also a movie adaption in th…
 
Ice and fire, snow and sand, Stark and Targaryen, Others/wights and dragons–that’s the dominant binary for the series, obviously. However, water is also a key “element” for the setting in general and the books in particular. The Iron Islands, the Riverlands, Dorne, and the Stormlands are all characterized by their relationship to water. House Greyj…
 
Westeros is a continent of jagged coasts, forbidding mountains, looming forests and lush rivers. Geography is destiny, though, as they say. Therefore, it makes sense to take a deeper look at how the continent shaped the people living on it, and how it informs the themes of the story. Can we make inferences as to why people are the way they are beca…
