Interesting lingstics vidoes on YouTube (GOT/accents and interpreting)

Here are some links to videos on YouTube by a channel called Wired. I discovered them some time ago but really only started watching them yesterday. They have some pretty interesting videos on languages.

I am sure that there are some GOT’s fans out there, weird has an interesting video by the creator of dorthraki where he speaks about the language and in general how to make your own fictional language.
