“Suffragette City“

Today we carry on with a month-long season #3 wrap up by talking about some of the ladies of Game of Thrones.

The great Matt Murdick, from “Podcast Winterfell,” and Christiana from the “Beyond the Wall” podcast join me to talk about the female warriors of the story.

These women are tough. They fight and buck the system. They’re fierce…..but are still women to the core.

On the docket today:

1. The Wolf-Girl

2. The Mother of Dragons….who’s also a scared, idealistic little girl.

3. The remarkable evolution of Osha the Wildling.

4. Daughter of Salt and Stone

5. A Wildling in Love

6. A revolutionary Concept: The truly feminine knight

We’ve had bad-ass female characters as focal points in the last 20 years: Clarice Starling, Dana Scully and Buffy…..but in this story, we’re treated to at least 7!

These women are strong, physical, and ruled just as much by their hearts as their heads.

Complicated and endlessly fascinating.

Long may these women reign!

Onwards!
