Ashaya

History of Westeros
With episodes that reach two hours or more, History of Westeros is full of detailed analysis, taking a scholarly yet lighthearted approach to George R.R. Martin's extremely popular A Song of Ice and Fire series.

Produced in both audio and video format, fans of the show frequently mention how many times they listen to each episode. Like the books themselves, each time through is a new experience. Episodes come in a variety of formats, some are tightly scripted, some feature open discussion, others contain both.

Heavily researched and cross-referenced with *all* source materials, including the entire A Song of Ice and Fire series, other novellas set on Planetos, interviews, and convention appearances, History of Westeros is the most comprehensive audio resource for fans of George R.R. Martin's epic work.
