  1. PodcastOne: The Deep Cut: Did Daenerys’s Decision in GoT Mirror Decisions by Historical Military Leaders in Our World?

    This week on The Deep Cut with John Rocha, Rocha welcomes Game of Thrones pundit and enthusiast Emma Fyffe to discuss Daenerys Targaryen's decision at the end of this past week's episode of Game of Thrones, 'The Bells'. They debate if the showrunners and the show writers have done a good job this season of laying down the groundwork for the turn. Explore the history of Dany's actions and statements, both in the show and in the books, to see if the decision she made was in character or out of the blue. They discuss an article in The Atlantic written by Spencer Kornhaber where he interviews Cornell University historian Barry Strauss about Dany's decision and if it mirrored historical decisions by military leaders in our world. And finally, they debate if what Dany did actually indicates that she is 'mad' or if she decided to make a military decision here and is in fact, NOT crazy. To read The Atlantic article, click here:
