2x05: The Ghost of Guy Branum
Delightful X-Play and Chelsea Handler writer Guy Branum joins Red and Ivan to cover Season 2, Episode 5 of Game of Thrones. At great length we cover R’hllorism, which part of the map Stannis and Melisandre fucked up on, whether Loras was a bottom, sexual identity in fantasy, Pyromancers, a Qarth art opening, Michael Stipe in The Fall, and so much more.
1.. Guy is awesome! Thoughtful, funny and a superfan. I love you guys, but if he starts a GOT podcast, I’m out of here. I hope you booked him for a lot of the upcoming episodes.
2. I’m sad you guys didn’t like the table boinking scene. I actually thought all the falling figures was a nice artistic shot foreshadowing all the people who are going to die for Stannis and Yoko’s ambitions.
3. Who is laughing from off Mike? Do you have a producer, or does Ivan get too far away from the mike?
Great podcast - still loving it.
Whoops - I also meant to say that the show’s changes to Stannis and Davos’s religious outlook hurts their characters - I’ll hand you guys some more when I get to this party in the book club
