Episode Summary

In the latest episode of Beyond the Margin, host Michael Shields welcomes to the studio Across the Margin’s own GOT Guru, Geoffrey Golia, and writer and Thrones-buff Krissy Trujillo, to dig into all things Game of Thrones. Geoffrey has been Across the Margin’s _Game of Thrones_ expert for the past two seasons, utilizing his profound expertise to deconstruct and make sense of the episodes. He is the host of the trivia night _A Trivia of Ice and Fire: Presented by the Upjumped Sellswords_ and the foremost GOT authority you will likely encounter not named George R.R. Martin. Krissy has contributed articles to Across the Margin centered around film (“For Your Consideration: La La Land”), television (“My Dearest Gilmore Girls”), the LGBTQ community in America (“Safe Spaces”), and of course _Game of Thrones_ (“Queen of the North”).

On this episode Michael, Geoffrey, and Krissy meticulously dissect the Season & premiere (“Dragonstone”), consider a handful of fan theories and their plausibility, propose where they feel the series may be heading in its final two seasons, and much, much more. Jumping off topic to conclude the podcast, Michael asks Geoffrey to let the listeners in on his day job, where he works at Getting Out Staying Out, an incredible Not-for-Profit that works to reduce recidivism in New York City and aid men aged sixteen to twenty-four at Rikers Island Correctional Facility to become productive members of the community (learn more about GOSO here!) Join us as Beyond the Margin explores a world rife with backstabbing, dragon fire, and where the night is dark and full of terror...
