Con of Thrones 2018: Morality Beyond the Wall

The audio for panels presented at Con of Thrones 2018 is being released to presenters! Since I was on six of them, it seems reasonable for me to share at least some of them here on my blog.

From left to right: Matt, Ian, Percy, and this guy with an enormous forehead.

On Saturday at the convention, at 10 a.m., I was joined by Professor Priscilla “Percy” Walton, writer Ian Thomas Malone, and /r/asoiaf subreddit moderator Matt (aka Joe Magician) to discuss morality, or as Percy Walton described it – coded ethics – in the relatively uncivilized lands North of the Wall.

It was an honor to present a panel with such learned and thoughtful people.

Joe Magician (that’s Matt, follow him on @JoeMagician42 on Twitter) took the audio and uploaded it to YouTube. It’s around 50 minutes. Although we were miked, the audience was not, so in instances where we didn’t repeat and paraphrase questions, you’ll have to use context clues on what was being asked. (I’ll do better next year, I promise.)

As these things make their way onto YouTube (I might have to learn how to do that myself) I’ll try to make them available here.

Best regards, and thanks to everyone who reads my blog articles about Game of Thrones, as well as my feature articles on Watchers on the Wall. Without your support, I would not have been invited to talk about such topics at a convention dedicated to a great show.

(So you are to blame. J’accuse!)

(Comments are always welcome. Super welcome! But if you want to talk spoilery Game of Thrones talk with me (also welcome) I’d invite you to visit my Safe Spoilers page on my backup blog. That way my non-book-reading friends won’t be shocked with foreknowledge.)

If you liked this article, thank you! I have all of my Game of Thrones related articles on my handy-dandy Game of Thrones page should you want to read more but don’t want to navigate around my site.
