Episode 34 for the week of January 10th, in which we lament our status as the outcast of the ASOIAF fandom, find out more about George’s recent book signing, and return to our long overdue reread of A Game of Thrones. We discuss chapters 56 and 57, with guest hosts Kyle and Sebastian being significantly more handsome and generally better than the rest of us.

The first installment in Dead Stop, Morning Edition’s summer road trip series about interesting gravesites in America.
When the Ben and Jerry’s ice cream company kills a flavor, it’s treated with respect — including a burial in the company’s "Flavor Graveyard."
"I think we’ve got the best, and the not-best, up here," Sean Greenwood, Ben and Jerry’s Grand Poobah of Publicity, says from the cemetery in Waterbury, Vt.
"Flavors like Wild Maine Blueberry. It’s been decades since we made this flavor, but we used to have the trucks back up here with truckloads of blueberries," he says, "and everyone would pitch in and unload the blueberries, and make it while the blueberries were fresh."
In what may be a nod to the current zombie fad, Ben and Jerry’s also offers customers a chance to make the case for resurrecting a favorite flavor.
But that doesn’t mean every flavor should be brought back. In particular, Greenwood cites "the dreaded Sugar Plum" ice cream, a mix of plum and caramel that he says should remain six feet under.

"You feel bad when the good ones just don’t make it anymore," Greenwood says.
A prime example is Rainforest Crunch, Greenwood says. He recites an elegiac poem dedicated to the flavor:
"With aching heart and heavy sigh, we bid Rainforest Crunch goodbye; that nutty brittle from exotic places got sticky in between our braces. 1989-1996. It was a really, really good flavor."
Like most cemeteries, the Flavor Graveyard attracts its share of mourners and other visitors.
"It’s not uncommon," Greenwood says. "You walk up to the graveyard here, and there’ll be fans that are up here putting flowers next to a headstone, or down on one knee, kind of paying their respects."

We discuss “A Dance With Dragons,” the latest 1000-page installment in George R.R. Martin’s bestselling “Song of Ice and Fire” fantasy series. Is this series going to end well? Which parts of this book were good, and which just treaded water? Would adding Klingons have helped? Why are trees the Westeros equivalent of security cameras? These are the sorts of questions you ask deep in the middle of a long fantasy series.
