#40: Game of Groans

Many fans of the HBO show Game of Thrones use photos of themselves sitting proudly atop an Iron Throne replica for their online dating profile pictures. But what's the symbolic meaning of the sword chair?

The first episode of the Slate Plus Game of Thrones TV Club podcast is available Monday afternoon, July 17th, 2017.
