6x09: Happy Shitting!
For “Battle of the Bastards”, Ivan and Red are joined by writer Maggie Tokuda-Hall to discuss what make-up you bring to the negotiating table, the gender dynamics of war councils, how Daenerys/Yara is the new greatest ship, and Ramsay’s fate still being better than he deserves.

I feel like you guys missed an important insight into Jon Snow’s emotional state by dismissing the scene with melisandre. He doesn’t care anymore if he’s alive or dead at this point. It seemed that way to me, at least. When he vehemently told melisandre not to bring him back, I felt his emptiness and pain. It made me feel as though he really could die because it wouldn’t totally be a Tragedy. I would have actually been kind of relieved for his soul’s sake.
I’m fairly certain the next king asshole to succeed Ramsay will be Euron Greyjoy. There’s rumors he’s in dabbling into Lovecraftian type crap and is looking to obtain godhood. He might even ally with the white walkers at some point.
I’ve only been listening for season 6, but Maggie was your best guest yet. Hope to hear her again soon.
