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