Dr. Kevin Uhalde is an Associate Professor of History at Ohio University and a learned scholar of medieval jurisprudence. He’s also a human being on earth in 2017, so he watches GoT!
In this podcast Mike talks to Dr. Uhalde about the Anglo-Saxon invasion of Britain, what exactly ‘breaking the wheel’ means, and the Great Man vs. Trends & Forces theory of history in relation to Westeros. Why do historians love ASOIAF? Turns out it’s not that different in academia than it is for the rest of us.
