  • Hi There,

    I am new to Bald Move, but am so happy I found you before the season of GOT started!! I listen faithfully to all the podcasts of GOT and think what you guys do is awesome for the most part. I have some food for thought, not only as a book reader, not only as a TV fan, but stepping outside the box and seeing it as a women. Maybe this is hopeful and maybe I am serving myself up some "Dry Pie", but I don't think you have said anything like this on your podcasts. So here goes it:

    I have heard you both comment on how the show makes Jon look weak and clueless, but I don't see this. From the first chapters of the book, to the last episode in the show, Jon's character has not really changed. What makes us love Jon is that he has always followed and lead with his heart, not with what others think is the best. While this is part of his downfall at times, it defiantly is not a sign of weakness; if anything it is a sign or a great ruler because he feels compassion for those that he would rule, not the greed of concurring, such as Daenerys has at the moment; he feels no entitlements the lands. His heart is pure. Daenerys on the other hand, feels entitled to what "is rightfully hers" and therefore is more on a mission. While she does try to do right things initially, like freeing the city slaves, she ultimately always come back to "concurring the world". People, such as Tyrion, have to remind her and reel her in constantly. The show has played throughout time with the dichotomy of fire and ice, and this is just another way of displaying this. Jon's pure heart and hope to part of a great thing-vs- Danni's drive to be ruler of a great thing. I have never been a fan of Danni + Jon idea until now. It is my belief that putting them together to truly balance each other out. Based on this view, what do you think?

    Thank you for everything

  • Been listening to the GoT podcast for about a month now - excellent stuff!  Signed up as a club member today.

    I have a quick theory I want to toss out for discussion - Jon seemed to be somewhat invincible last night, especially with his apparent falling-arrow raincoat.  I know you guys generally dismiss the religious elements of the Song, but IMO he was being protected.

    Loved your podcast on the matrix, will Jim do a Dreadful podcast with you, haven't seen him post anything on the show assuming it's not his brand of vodka, how does one go about getting a commissioned podcast?

    Hello!
    Huge fan of the whole Bald Move network - I've been listening a long time, and I think you and Jim are great!
    I'm a new member to the forum, and had an etiquette question. I am taking part in my area's MS Walk this year (I was diagnosed 4 years ago, so it's a cause near and dear to my heart), and have a link in my signature that people can click and donate to The MS Society. I first wanted to check and make sure you were ok with that.
    Second, I was wondering if you'd allow me to make a thread devoted to this. If you were ok with it, what I would do is just write a short paragraph explaining what MS is, and post that link to the MS Society.
    Please let me know what you think.
    Thank you!
    (PS - Just wanted to make clear that I don't work for The MS Society, or have any affiliation with them. I'm just someone who has MS, and is really hoping they find a cure one day.)
