Educating [Geeks] S4 E12 – A Game of Thrones Novel

On this episode of Educating [Geeks] Bri, Krissy and Megan talk about A Game of Thrones, the first book in the Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin. Good news – it’s 70% less rapey than the TV show! Or is it 60% less? Regardless, the ladies love the books and the TV show so enjoy their robust debate about Sansa Stark along with their many frustrations with the Stark family. And since they’re all giant Game of Thrones fans, they can’t help but discuss spoilers from the end of season six of the TV show.

*SPOILER ALERT* we talk about the book A Game of Thrones in its entirety so be prepared for spoilers. There are also some spoilers from some of the other books and for the latest season of the show. We’ve done our best to identify them, but be warned.
