“Game of Thrones” Character OR “This American Life” Contributor?

“Game of Thrones” Character OR “This American Life” Contributor?

 

Season 5 of “Game of Thrones” premieres Sunday, April 12 at 9PM on HBO. It’s Game of Thrones is one of the most popular shows in the history of television, and the epic fantasy series has many characters who have become household names for fans of the show.

But there’s something about the “Game of Thrones” character names that sounds familiar. The spelling, cadence, and sheer uniqueness of naming conventions in Westeros reminds me of some of the great names I’ve heard from contributors to the public radio show/podcast, “This American Life.” Sort of like how Hunger Games characters sound like NPR anchors to me.

Don’t believe me? See for yourself – take the quiz below to find out if you can tell the difference between “Game of Thrones” characters and “This American Life” contributors in our name game.
