Description

The A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones podcast where we gush about Martin's prose and complain about the atrocious adaptation of his finest work.

Customer Reviews

Thank god this exists

I’ve been fuming about D+Ds toxic masculinity fart fest of a “lets wildly misunderstand literally every single theme” of a “Tywin and Tyrion are awesome as fukkk” of an adaptation for several years now and really wish I would have found this podcast earlier. But binging it is very cathartic, so thank you.

A Must Listen For Any ASoIaF Fan

The only reason this isn’t my favorite podcast is it isn’t released on a regular schedule. And because The Rachel Maddow Show has a podcast version.

Insightful analyses and so much salt (in a good way)

A fantastic podcast for those (like myself) who love A Song of Ice and Fire and have hated the direction its "adaptation" has turned. Julia and Kylie do an excellent job of examining the themes and characterizations in the series, and their deconstruction of why the show fails at these are a nice reminder that I am not going crazy--it's the show fans who are wrong. I'm surprised too at how often I now bring up the concepts of a "cultural vaccuum" and Doylist vs. Watsonian analysis, so much so that it has spread to my friends as well (and has resulted in some great conversations in our literary discussions at university). The ASOIAF theory episode is my favorite so far, with its focus on thematic purpose rather than "could this hypothetically happen just 'cause", and I have to admit I even loved the two hour fanfic episode.
Warning: listening to this podcast may result in caring about Dorne.
