I am a fan of science, skepticism, and (oddly enough) fantasy. I love thought provoking ideas and intricate character development!

    Game of Thrones fans watch in delight as the epic battle of Lannister and Stark entangles the Seven Kingdoms. But only the sharpest notice how these houses echo Lancaster and York in the War of the Roses. Druids, Catholics, and even Zoroastrians wander through Westeros, reframing their religions for a new world of fantasy. But how medieval is Westeros? Did lady knights and pirates really battle across Europe? The audiobook Winter is Coming: Symbols and Hidden Meanings in A Game of Thrones explores all this and more, from the echoes of history to the symbols and omens our beloved characters.

    If you could sum up Winter is Coming in three words, what would they be?

    About John Snow


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the ideas and the discussion of parallels to European history. Though as far as the characters were concerned the vast majority of the interesting discussion is about John Snow.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, but SPOILERS

    If you’ve ever wanted to delve more deeply into the mysteries of human emotion, perception, and cognition, and of why we do what we do, these 48 lectures offer a superb place to start. With them, you’ll see the entire history of psychology unfold. In the hands of Professor Robinson, these lectures encompass ideas, speculations, and point-blank moral questions that might just dismantle and rebuild everything you once thought you knew about psychology.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Great Ideas of Psychology the most enjoyable?

    This was so thought provoking. It was very similar to an undergraduate course I took years ago, but at the time I didn't really appreciate it as much as I do now. I love gaining the perspective of how ideas and fields came to be, and what influences the different approaches to psychology in study and practice.

    Whether or not we're aware of them, we make important ethical decisions all the time - as professionals, consumers, citizens, parents, sons and daughters, and friends. These 24 thought-provoking lectures offer you the chance to reflect on some of the most powerful moral issues we face in our daily lives: Is it ever OK to lie? What are our moral obligations to others? What is the key to living the good life? From Plato to Kant to Bonhoeffer, you'll see how some of the world's greatest thinkers from across the ages have approached similar problems.

    Story
    Would you listen to Moral Decision Making again? Why?

    Yes, I actually plan to after reading something else. This course was very engrossing and thought-inspiring. The topics were relevant to most people facing the modern world of today and I feel that much could be gleaned from a second and third listen.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I was really into the discussions on money and economics, as well as the Golden Rule and hedonism.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I certainly tried! It took me 2 days to get through.
