All you need to know about Game of Thrones! This project endeavors to serve two kinds of listeners at the same time: those who like history and those who like Game of Thrones. The two are often mutual interests. In effect this audiobook is a real-life historical breakdown of the cultures, characters, and events contained within George R. R. Martin´s epic book series A Song of Ice and Fire (ASOIAF). The books and short stories, along with the global smash hit HBO TV series Game of Thrones, which is based upon the ASOIAF novels, is set in a complex, engrossing medieval fantasy world every bit as interesting, complicated, morally gray, and brutal as humanity´s real history. The reason for Mr. Martin´s level of detail in crafting his characters, locations, cultures, and histories within the ASOIAF world is rather simple. George R. R. Martin is a lifelong student of history as well as an unashamed history nerd. In interview after interview, the author of this truly expansive world admits to drawing upon real events, real cultures, and actual peoples within world history as templates for his imagination to build upon. Mr. Martin seems to have a particular affinity for the medieval period (5th to 15th centuries CE) of Europe and the Middle East, with a great deal of inspiration coming from British history during that era. In addition he draws heavy influence from the Renaissance era (15th to 17th centuries CE). He is also not afraid to dive further back into human history for literary fuel. The ancient Celts, Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, and Persians, among others, are all present in some form within the ASOIAF world. Nearly every culture on earth, along with a bit of its history, has a place in ASOIAF. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Phillip J Mather.

From legendary character actor Stephen Tobolowsky - who currently appears on The Goldbergs, HBO´s Silicon Valley, and Norman Lear´s new One Day at a Time, author of The Dangerous Animals Club and The Tobolowsky Files podcast - My Adventures with God is a funny, introspective collection about love, catastrophe, and triumph, all told through the lens of his evolving relationship with the mystery that is ´´God´´. As Tobolowsky explains, ´´It´s hard to believe in nothing. Even cats believe in suppertime. As much as we love certainty, we are often shaped by the invisible, the unexplainable - something we call faith. We are inclined to acknowledge the holy. Even if it is only a paper heart we find in an old suitcase.´´ My Adventures with God is a series of short stories exploring the idea that most people´s lives seem to fit into the template of the Old Testament. We all have powerful creation myths: tales of our childhood and family, our first battles won and lost. It is our Genesis. Then, like in the Book of Exodus, we go into slavery. Rather than building pyramids, we lose ourselves in fear and ambition - in first loves, first jobs, too many dreams mixed with too much beer. We eventually become free, only to wander in the wilderness. At some point we stop and proclaim to the universe who we are. This is our Leviticus moment. We reconcile what we thought we would be with what we have become. We often attempt a mid-course correction. Then, as in the Book of Numbers, we are shaped by mortality as we bear the loss of family and friends. Finally, we retell our stories to our children hoping to make sense of the journey, as Moses did in Deuteronomy. Tobolowsky´s stories tell of a boy growing up in the wilds of Texas, finding and losing love, losing and finding himself - all told through the prism of the Torah and Talmud, mixed with insights from science, and refined through a child´s sense of 1.
