Welcome to the second installment of David Weinczok's interview on the real places and history that inspire Game of Thrones. In his book (see links below) there is an excellent map (map in previous episode's show notes) of where these location are in Scotland.

Today's episode includes a chapter on mythical creatures, gods and more (….muahahahahaha, insert very Halloween feeling here…) Specifically, we talk the giants of Westeros vs the traditional giant of Scottish folklore.

The second chapter we cover gets into the Black Dinner. This is an actual (two) event(s) that inspired the Red Wedding in Game of Thrones. Discussing guest rights, as a common practice in history, is really interesting as presented by David.

The episode concludes with what is next for David, how you can contact him and where he will be signing books soon.

I hope this episode inspires you to visit Scotland and of course, buy David's book (I'm not even paid to say that)!

David's guest page is here.

Blessings to you adventurer!
