Get It Right, Episode 01 – Game of Thrones: The Good, the Bad, the Sexposition

Marc Faletti

Welcome to the premiere episode of our new podcast series, Get It Right. Host Jamie Broadnax, founder of the popular site and podcast Black Girl Nerds, joins forces with VanityFair.com senior writer Joanna Robinson to discuss Game of Thrones and how one of the most popular and ambitious shows in history handles race, gender, sex, and sexual assault. From the story arcs of major characters like Sansa Stark and Daenerys Targaryen to the erasure of the few women of color who appear the book series, Jamie and Joanna dissect the various ways Game of Thrones does—and doesn’t—get it right.
