STORM OF SPOILERS – “Can Wun Wun Swim?” and Other Important Questions

3 Flares 3 Flares ×



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


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 8 “Hardhome”

This week, Neil is down with some non-greyscale sickness (dude wouldn’t tell us if it WAS greyscale anyway), so Joanna and Da7e attack a very substantive episode of Game of Thrones from as many sides as possible. What dark fate awaits Stannis in the snow? Why doesn’t Tyrion mention Dorne when talking to Dany? Jonana updates Da7e on the whereabouts of Varys and his book monologue and Da7e is filled with questions and unhelpful observations. No one steps too far onto Neil’s terrace of the Crazytown Citadel, but both parties do their best trying to figure out what Arya’s up to in the next weeks and guessing what the Night’s King’s name is.
