Episode 85: A CLASH OF KINGS, DAENERYS I: “Follow the Leader” ft. Mighty Isobel

October 28, 2019

Hello and welcome back to the NotACast, the one true chapter-by-chapter podcast going through A Song of Ice and Fire one chapter a week!

In this episode, the messiah, her miracle babies, and her dwindling entourage wander the desert in pursuit of a star, only to be met by three wise men. Well...not all of them are men, and none of them are wise, but you get the idea.

This week, we:

-Rank our favorite Star Wars movies (lest we be the only ones not to)

-Discuss our...mixed feelings about Dany's prophetic arc in ACOK and her spiritual place in general

-Praise how George writes Dany as a young mother, albeit of lizards

-Dig into the layers of imagery and metaphor in this chapter's settings, the Red Waste and Vaes Tolorro 

-Begrudgingly allow Jorah Mormont to tell his mediocre life story

Next week: Pig-faced shit-knight Amory Lorch wipes out the heroic grump Yoren of the Night's Watch, along with most of his ragged fellowship, in ACOK Arya IV! Can't wait until Lorch dies.
