I'm outta here. Excessive use of the word "like" and vocal fry is just too hard to listen to.

it "feels like a betrayal" only to people who chose to ignore all the signs she would be villainous as well as her objectively dark deeds.

Did Sansa say she was glad she was raped? I don't recall that. I remember her saying it made her who she was. She wasn't a little bird anymore (naive anymore), I think that's what she meant. I don't think she meant the rape "made her who she was", I think she meant it opened her eyes to now terrible the world could be.

Coverage of the episode beings 30 minutes in just FYI. Then they skip over some major points on the episode.

there is some good analysis here but having half the podcast spent viewing the show through a politically correct lense is pretty tiring.
