The Women of ASOIAF/Game of Thrones

April 18, 2019

Join host Ian Thomas Malone and special guest Chloe of Girls Gone Canon as we dedicate an episode to the women of A Song of Ice & Fire/Game of Thrones. George R.R. Martin populated Westeros with dozens of fascinating female characters who impact the story in countless ways. Despite their achievements, often times the women in our story catch a fair amount of unwarranted slack for actions their male counterparts aren’t as criticized for.

Join us as we analyze Sansa Stark, Catelyn Stark, Daenerys Targaryen, Cersei Lannister, Lysa Arryn, Arya Stark, Brienne of Tarth, Asha (Yara) Greyjoy, Ashara Dayne, Rhaenyra Targaryen, Meera Reed, and Barbrey Dustin among others, looking at these characters’ various actions and the ways they’re perceived by the fandom.

Transition on Your Own Terms

March 27, 2019

In our inaugural episode, host Ian Thomas Malone talks about her decision to keep her birth name after transitioning. Transgender people are often expected to make sacrifices in the name of the supposed "right way to transition," putting aside the fact that no one seems clear as to what that means. Ian breaks down the importance of making choices that reflect the individual's own preferences and not society at large.
