Episode 45: House of The Dragon Family Tree The Story Monster Podcast

Happy Thanksgiving or whatever. The best way to celebrate is to discuss House of The Dragon family tree. It's riddled with inbreeding, murder, and infidelity beyond comprehension. I brought a few friends of mine to talk about House of The Dragon and the ratchet behavior therein.  So, put the little ones in a cage, grab a glass of wine and let's talk about dem dragons.
