Averill, Dan, and special guest Andy Smyser compare the military fortifications of two cities: the fictional Westeros city of King's Landing and the historical European city of Constantinople. We're resurrecting that epic battle scene of Season Two - the Battle of Blackwater Bay - to talk about the cutting edge defense tactics Tyrion employed, and similar tactics employed by the protectors of Byzantine Constantinople for almost 700 years. The premier of the sixth season of HBO's Game of Thrones is April 24th - feed your GoT obsession with our discussion of King's Landing, Constantinople, and some epic battles.
