What is up with the Sand Snakes?; religion and more on ‘Game of Thrones’: Rains of Podcastamere

PodcastamereI’m a day late, but hopefully not a dollar short, on posting this week’s “Rains of Podcastamere” for you all. It went live while I was watching “Mad Max” (again, this time in 3D) and I have been too busy fawning over Furiosa since then.

But, back to Westeros. Sean and I have a LOT to talk about this week: Tyrion meeting Danaerys; Cersei getting locked up; Olenna continuing to be great, even on the defensive; Sansa being thwarted; and, of course, those damn Sand Snakes. Our topic of the day, as the Sparrows exercise their militant powers, is religion in the “Game of Thrones” universe.

Let’s get right to it!

The Rains of Podcastamere” is PennLive.com’s new “Game of Thrones” podcast starring PennLive Senior Westeros Correspondent Sean Adams, Community Engagement Lead Chris Mautner and myself.

Our theme music was arranged by Will Leinninger of Enola and performed by Leinninger and Vegas Grimwood, also of Enola. “Main Title” was originally composed by Ramin Djawadi for HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” Listen to Leinninger’s band 3033 on Facebook and Reverb Nation.

Tune in each Tuesday afternoon at PennLive.com, if you’re into this podcast.

  1. I’m up to speed on your podcast, which I enjoyed.

    I think you guys were too hard on the arena. It’s not in Meereen, it’s not for a spectacle, it was something like Yezzan’s training area where he weeds out guys. Hizdahr was bringing Dany by to inspect the local talent, not to any main events.

    Great discussion and overview of the religions of Westeros. You guys correctly implied that R’hllor seems to have the most obvious flashy magic, but I think the Wall is a testament to the Old Gods, since a huge and incredibly stable razor-thin glacier spanning the continent has got to be supernatural.

    Thanks again for the great podcasts, I’m looking forward to your next one.
