A GAME OF THRONES PODCAST FOR PEOPLE WHO WANT TO TALK ABOUT SPOILERS

With Joanna Robinson from Vanity Fair, Dave Gonzales from Geek.com and Neil Miller from Film School Rejects!

WARNING

If you’re looking for spoiler-free dissection of the highest caliber, you’re looking for A CAST OF KINGS (click there)

This podcast includes some occasional cussing, but no more than usual. It covers SEASON 5 EPISODE 7 “The Gift.”

This week, all our hosts dream that they are old and have all the time in the world to discuss Game of Thrones. We can’t get through a single scene without having some questions about execution or some speculation about how this contributes to the end of the season. Casting for Season 6 of the show has begun and we might put a little too much stock on what IMDB says about the tenth episode of the season. Da7e gets a quick geography lesson, Neil convinces everyone he knows better about the Dorne plotline and we all wonder if we’ve seen the last of Benjen Stark.
