We talk with Jason Greene and Alex Berg from Hardcore Game of Thrones, a show that tells the history of Westeros in the style of Dan Carlin's Hardcore History.

Elizabeth Morgan (elzbethmrgn) | 278 comments I have to admit I was a little cross at Veronica's amazement at how these guys have taken not much info from the world and turned it into a cool narrative. That's what historians do every day!

Then I realised that maybe not everyone knows that.

Historians make cool stories every day! But with Actual Things that happened (as much as it can be determined that they are Actual Things that happened). The part where you can do it with a world like ASOIAF speaks volumes about GRRM's work and worldbuilding.

(Full disclaimer: I'm a historian. Obviously ;))

Tamahome | 6352 comments Dan Carlin's Common Sense current events podcast is also good. The latest one is called "Disengaging the Lizard Brain": http://www.dancarlin.com/common-sense...

He gives good Audible picks at the end too.
