BLAH 98 | Elections of Ice and Fire, part 2: Great Councils, Triarchies and messiahs

Released Monday, 16th December 2019
Good episode? Give it some love!
After we talked about the Night’s Watch, the Faith and the Citadel and their voting mechanisms in the last episode, we’re finally back to tackle other, even tornier election issues. How do the Great Councils of Westeros play out, if they play out? What is the big might have been of 181 AC? How does the Triarchy of Volantis fare on the democracy scale, and is it a better place than King’s Landing due to its political system?
All of this, and more, with my co-host and friend Marcus A. Roberts, whose worklife as a political consultant gives him unique insight. If you find my rambling about the Great Council of 101 AC a bit strange, then entertain the hypothetical that I might have mixed up my facts and couldn’t resolve the ensuing confusion completely in post-production. Not saying this is what happened, but it’s a hypothetical to consider.
