Feeling a little lost with all the prequel talk of “the Age of Heroes” and other Westeros history? Have no idea who Lann the Clever is? Why does that Stark sigil we glimpsed from the set look different? Not to worry — school is in session!

The Night’s Cast, the official podcast of Watchers on the Wall, is your visiting maester for a couple of episodes we’re calling Summer School at the Citadel, in which we dive into any and all Westeros (and some Essos) history that might be relevant to the upcoming spinoff. This week, join Vanessa, Petra and Samantha for lesson number one on the Dawn Age, early Starks and more.

The podcast is available on iTunes and SoundCloud, and you can follow us on Twitter as well. Happy listening!


  1. Not sure where to comment on this…
    Like Middle earth, I think that the great genius of ASOIF is the richness and fullness of the world that GRRM has created in which any number of stories can be played out in the distant past or future.

    I’m looking for more ASOIF material to keep me going and was wondering is there any decent fan fiction available to read? Is that even legal?

    I would definitely read any spinoff stories written by the WoTW crew.
