Episode 77: A CLASH OF KINGS, TYRION I: “The New Boss”

September 2, 2019
Hello and welcome back to the NotACast, the one true chapter-by-chapter (though not in this case) podcast going through A Song of Ice and Fire one chapter a week!
 
In this episode, everyone’s a gangster until a gangster walks in the room.
 
This week, we:
 
- Discuss the themes of each book
 
- Look at Tyrion at Michael Corleone from The Godfather
 
- Analyze the series of tests that Tyrion has to undergo on his first day at the job
 
- Talk about what Tyrion is actually doing in propping Joffrey up
 
- Make the uncontroversial argument that Tyrion in Seasons 2-4 of Game of Thrones is better than Tyrion in Storm and Clash.
 
Next week, we head north to Winterfell, where Bran Stark is trying really really hard to be a good prince, but can’t ignore the wolf-howl in his head telling him he’s something else entirely...
