Episode 166: A STORM OF SWORDS, SAMWELL I: ”The Terror (Part 1)”

Hello and welcome to the NotACast, the one true chapter-by-chapter podcast going through A Song of Ice and Fire one chapter a week!   In this episode, Samwell Tarly is walking in a winter wonderland...y'know, let's make that terrorland. Sounds right.   This week, we:   

- Break down how George structures the reveal of what happened at the Fist

- Praise the formal experimentation of interweaving past and present

- Shiver in fear at the exquisite tone of dread a la Stephen King and found footage

- Analyze Sam as a POV, as his stress and self-loathing keeps breaking the surface

- Frame this chapter as a taste of things to come for Westeros when the Wall falls

  Next week: we plunge back into hell to finish up ASOS, Samwell I!   Our patreon: www.patreon.com/NotACastASOIAF   Our merch store: https://notacastasoiaf.threadless.com     Our twitter: twitter.com/NotACastASOIAF   Our facebook: www.facebook.com/groups/289889118235797/   Our youtube page: www.youtube.com/channel/UCmmDfPdG…iew_as=subscriber   Emmett's twitter: twitter.com/PoorQuentyn
