‘A Podcast Remembers’ Ep 9: Interview with ‘Thrones’ Emmy-winning sound designer

Love those epic dragon and White Walker sounds? You can thank Paula Fairfield.

This podcast is hosted by Eric and Liz Prugh. The two are married and use drinking wine and talking about ‘Game of Thrones’ as their date night. Now that the HBO series is over, the two will be hosting exclusive interviews, as well as break down George R.R. Martin’s new book Fire and Blood, (which HBO has called for a pilot!) Tune in to previous episodes where they look back at some of the most intricate storylines, characters, and myths in the world of Westeros. 

Welcome back to A Podcast Remembers! We’ve been on a summer hiatus while we welcomed our new baby girl into the world. And even though our favorite fantasy series Game of Thrones has come to an end, there is still A LOT to talk about.

For our first podcast back, we have an exclusive interview with the Emmy-winning sound designer of the series, Paula Fairfield. Paula is the talent behind those terrifying dragon and White Walker sounds, the clash of every sword in all of those epic battles, and Prince Oberyn’s eyes gushing out of their sockets from The Mountain’s thumbs.

We’ll spare you the actual GIF of his eyes exploding.

Paula shares how the sound behind the series came to life over the seasons, as well as what’s next for her after Game of Thrones, like the new Harley Quinn film, Birds of Prey (!!!)

Enjoy our exclusive interview, and subscribe to A Podcast Remembers on iTunes and SoundCloud to get alerted for our next podcast episode, where we start to dive into George R.R. Martin’s Fire and Blood book, which tells the 300 year history of the Targaryen’s rule of Westeros. HBO has ordered a pilot based on the Fire and Blood book, so get excited!
