Gotributor Mallory Aler: How Linguistics Foiled Daenerys’ Ambitions

Gotributor Mallory Aler: How Linguistics Foiled Daenerys’ Ambitions

May 30, 2019

Welcome to our inaugural Gotributor conversation with patron Mallory Aller!!!!! As part of Got Academy Gotributor special offer we invite $10 patrons to come on the podcast to review Game of Thrones from their own unique perspective and share their own insights. And Mallory, who's doing her Masters in linguistics, opens up for us a new way to look at Game of Thrones, through the power of language and the way that Game of Thrones characters use it. We talk about Daenerys' Common Tongue problem, Sansa's natural ability to speak the King's Landing dialect, how (book) Arya must be multi lingual in the deepest sense, and more.

Game of Thrones Historical Review: Middle Ages, Renaissance, Trotsky and Napoleon

Game of Thrones Historical Review: Middle Ages, Renaissance, Trotsky and Napoleon

May 28, 2019

Now that Game of Thrones season 8 is behind us and the conclusion is that the 7 kingdoms are now two kingdoms made up of 6+1, with Bran Stark king in the south and Sansa Stark Queen in the North, Dr. Rutger Vos, evolutionary biologist and history buff, and Gil Kidron, sit down to break down the conclusion from a historical and political point of view. What happened to the decline in feudalism? To British history? Is Bran the Dalai Lama or the Fisher King? Is Daenerys Targaryen Stalin, Trotsky or Napoleon? We talk Game of Thrones and history!

Human Evolution in Movies

Human Evolution in Movies

May 21, 2019

We launch our new series of podcast episodes - science in movies! With Dr. Rutger Vos, an evolutionary biologist from Leiden University and Naturalis Biodiversity Center, both in The Netherlands. In our inaugural science podcast episode we talk about the evolution of humans from apes, and how this theme is portrayed in movies. Our movies of choice: the original Planet of the Apes (1968), 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) and Altered States (1980). What do these movies say about how we view ourselves? Our predecessors? Our evolution? And what do they say about the scientific thought when they were made.

Avengers Endgame Review: The Biggest Small Movie of All Time

Avengers Endgame Review: The Biggest Small Movie of All Time

May 6, 2019

Finally, our Avengers Endgame review is here! Gil Kidron and Theo Gangi discuss how the Russo Brothers accomplished this incredible achievement of creating a gigantic superhero movie about an intergalactic war full of CGI - that feels like an emotionally personal movie. Tony Stark/Ironman, Captain America/Steve Rogers, Thor, the Hulk, Nebula - all had fulfilling arcs that left us wanting more.
