Are the dragons in Game of Thrones a metaphor for nuclear weapons? Or do they instead represent conventional air power?

These are the critical questions, as the long-running series is about to embark upon its final episode this Sunday night. And two of the Bulletin‘s contributors, Timothy Westmyer (nuclear weapons) and Michael C. Horowitz (conventional air power) conducted a self-described “fun and nerdy conversation” about this burning (no pun intended) topic on Westmyer’s Super Critical Podcast—devoted to “over thinking movies about nuclear weapons with policy analysis, quasi-science, pop culture debates, and too many puns.”
