Radio Westeros E61 - TWoW Primer, part 7 - The Reach

We head to the Reach to catch up on what's been going there -- from ironborn raiding to Sam Tarly's arrival in Oldtown. After taking a long look at the events described in the TWoW preview chapter The Forsaken, we go on to discuss what might be happening early in TWoW, with a naval battle about to take place in the Redwyne Straits.
