ALL THE WAY from across the world, Eliana returns to unleash the D in our final episode of HOTD: UTD.

Pardon the birds - it's the music of the dragons surrounding Eliana out east.

THANK YOU to patrons, listeners, and friends for tuning in while Eliana has been a-travelin'. We'll be back with our ASOIAF POV series this month and more - and MORE UPDATES within the episode... 

Check out Eliana's essay, DAUGHTER OF DEATH: https://themanyfacedblog.wordpress.com/2019/04/19/daughter-of-death-a-song-of-ice-and-fires-shakespearean-tragic-hero/

To go forward, we must go back - back to 2008, 2010, 2011, and all the years before and after, to when the powerhouse GAME OF THRONES steamrolled a nation every single Sunday night. 

Chloe is joined by John Picacio, artist of the 2012 ASOIAF Calendar distributed by RANDOM HOUSE. Not to mention John's iconic artwork for X-MEN, STAR TREK, the NINTH HOUSE, ELRIC and more. (And you should hear about his Hugos... Titles, titles ;) )

John recants some of his own experience during GAME OF THRONES' explosive birth as we look forward to the many crownings to come in HOUSE OF THE DRAGON.

Follow John's work - and yes, get your very own Sandor and Sansa print, like Chloe - below:

First, hi! We're off this week due to a little bit of real-life-happening; Another One Of Your Hosts is off to step through windows to another world, and we have to take a quick pause - we'll be back with ASOIAF & our final His Dark Materials The Amber Spyglass episode very soon, but in the meantime, enjoy this pre-recorded (December 2019! The Before Times!) episode on Lantern Slides in His Dark Materials. What exactly are Lantern Slides?

At the end of each of the books, particularly in the Omnibus version/later versions, Pullman has included vignettes and snippets of his worlds.  In this episode, the girls stop to discuss these, and Chloe dives deeper in some of the implications with the Dustiest-scussion. 

SPOILERS - the main trilogy of His Dark Materials. 

DUSTCUSSION: outer trilogy of  His Dark Materials, dust-cussed closer to the end.
