Game of Thrones podcast: Season 5, Episode 6 — “Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken”

[ 103 ] May 18, 2015 |

sansa stark

So if you’ve never listened to this podcast and have just heard the (true) rumors that we bicker like an old Jewish married couple about Game of Thrones every week — well, it’s time to stop not-listening to us, because we managed to work through the issues with this last episode — and there are many – as adeptly as as anyone this side of Alyssa has.

Basically — if you must listen to one episode of this podcast, this is the one. And we address the questions you want answered right at the beginning too, because we’re polite like that.

Purchase the new essay collection — Tower of the Hand: A Hymn for Spring – containing essays by Attewell! Because believe it or not even after everything else he’s written and 55 hours of putting up with me in this podcast, Steven has even more to say about Game of Thrones.

The image-based Game of Thrones recapper I mentioned can be found here.

I apologize for the background noise, but Kendra was in New York City and, it turns out, New Yorkers are very, very loud.

And the Game of Thrones podcast is on the way — as is one about Daredevil. I apologize for the delay, I’m only very behind on everything at the moment.

It includes my new hit single, “Dorne,” which I promise I only actually “sing” once. Enjoy!

Game of Thrones podcast: Season 5, Episode 1 — “The Wars to Come”

[ 73 ] April 13, 2015 |


Game of Thrones is back, and so are we! In this episode, we discuss the show’s first-ever flashback, CGI harpys, and so much more.

To read Steven Attewell’s piece on Daenerys and the question of Iraq vs. Reconstruction as historical metaphor, see here.

PS: SEK edited out all the episode 2 spoilers he accidentally let loose because he’s an asshole, but just in case he missed one, he’s sorry — and an asshole.


Lawyers, Guns & Money podcast — The Flash — Amanda Marcotte, Arturo Garcia & SEK

[ 9 ] April 6, 2015 |


I grant you — no pun intended — that the image there is probably the least Flash-y image of Barry Allen I could find online, but I assure you that you’ll enjoy the hour-and-a-half Amanda, Arturo and I spent talking about the CW’s hit series. We covered all the angles as only the three of us could — meaning that Amanda and Arturo said very smart things about race and class and gender while I just cursed once in a while to remind people I exist and how I roll.

In all seriousness, though, I hope you enjoy listening to this as much as we did producing it.

Game of Thrones podcast — Season 2, Episode 10 — “Valar Morghulis”

And with this post, Steven and I have now matched Game of Thrones episode-for-episode…but unfortunately those fuckers are about to start another season, so you have much more to look forward from us in the coming months. Enjoy!

Community podcast: SEK and Arturo Garcia on the problems with #SixSeasonAndAMovie

[ 8 ] April 2, 2015 |


So my soon-to-be-former Raw Story cohort Arturo Garcia and I decided we had things to say about the sixth season of Community, and what better place to say them then in a podcast?* It contains spoilers for all episodes up to the fourth as well as rampant speculation as to how the season would conclude in an ideal world.

*I say “soon-to-be-former” because I got a new gig as a staff writer/assistant editor at Salon and my thinking is, “life-altering announcements are always best made in footnotes.” I start in mid-April and will have more details about what I’ll be doing there in the next few weeks.
