A reflection on the role of Religion in Game of Thrones
Show Notes

Game of Thrones is nothing less than a cultural phenomenon, attracting 100's of millions of viewers, a rabid fanbase, and exhaustive attention on social media. While many TV shows erase Religion or keep it firmly in the background, in Game of Thrones it has a significant role in the narrative.  

In this episode, Allie is joined by Jody and David to discuss Religion in Game of Thrones.

Along the way, Jody offers a brilliant in-depth analysis of Daenerys Targaryen, while David posits that she illustrates fundamental tensions within liberalism. 

Exploring themes like redemption, the Trinity, and enchantment, they both suggest how this Sunday's finale will play out from a theological perspective!
