Episodes

  • 801 - Winterfell - SpoiLore Edition

    Apr 19 2019

    Jim and A.Ron are here to delve into the deeper mysteries of Game of Thrones, discussing the lore, prophecies, and world building that make Thrones great. Some of this material could be construed as spoilery, as it involves informed speculation about events that could happen on the show based on material found in the A Song of Ice and Fire series.  We do not discuss production spoilers or leaks on this podcast. Today we talk dragons in the north, Valonqar prophecies, the weirdification of Bran S...more

  • 801 - Winterfell

    Apr 16 2019

    Jim and A.Ron are here to break down all the action from this week’s premiere episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones, “Winterfell”. And indeed the ancestral home of House Stark houses the direwolf’s share of the action and intrigue, as characters are reunited, dragons are flown, and divisions within the forces of the Living threaten to undermine the war against the Dead. It’s clear that sharing power and cooperating is going to be a challenge, not only for Jon and D...more

  • 801 - Winterfell - Instant Take

    Apr 15 2019

    The Instant Talk podcast is our aftershow, with our own quick thoughts about the episode followed by an interactive chat discussion with our fans, live on YouTube.  The first half is released as the Instant Take podcast.  The audio from the interactive section is released as a premium podcast just for our club members.

  • Game of Thrones - Season 8 Preview

    Apr 09 2019

    Game of Thrones is back, and we’re here to break down all the angles, all the characters, all the theories, and all the feedback. Who will sit the Iron Throne? Will there be an Iron Throne? Will the Hound find peace? What role will Tyrion play after the War for the Dawn? Will Bran wind up living in a tree? Will Dany wind up with an all-woman Queensguard? We discuss all this and more as we kick off the most comprehensive Game of Thrones coverage you can find on the ‘net!  See you Sund...more

  • “Gods of Thrones” Vol. 2 Preview Podcast #2!

    Apr 02 2019

    A.Ron and Anthony are back to talk Game of Thrones and Gods of Thrones! This week we discuss the curious coincidence of Stark children warging, how the British legend of Bran the Blessed could tie into the fate of Brandon Stark, and how Jaqen H’ghar functions as a literary genie of the bottle. Listener, you ain’t never had a friend like him. If you enjoyed our discussion, please check out godsofthrones.com where you can purchase the first volume of Gods of Thrones, as well as get a b...more

  • “Gods of Thrones” Vol. 2 Preview Podcast!

    Mar 26 2019

    Getting ever closer to HBO’s Game of Thrones season 8 premiere, Anthony and A.Ron are back to celebrated a related milestone; the imminent release of Volume 2 of their deep dive into the religions and cultures of Westeros, Gods of Thrones! This follow up to Volume one covers the Faceless Men, The Ironborn, the Dothraki, the Valyrians, and many more topics with tons of historical notes, cultural analogs, fan theories, footnotes, and fun. For this podcast we selected a few points of interest...more

  • Season 8 Trailer Breakdown!

    Mar 06 2019

    We’re so close we can feel the dragon fire! HBO dropped an awesome new trailer for the long awaited final season of Game of Thrones, and we’re here to break it down in near-exhaustive detail. We’re letting you know our plans for coverage this year, which we’re aiming to be the most timely and comprehensive around. Instant takes, deep dives, and lore talk, a fantasy film festival, and a new book by A.Ron. The trailer showed us a lot of tantalizing details. What could possi...more

  • “Gods of Thrones” – “Fire and Blood” – Part 3

    Dec 14 2018

    We’re back with a super-sized wrap up episode for our coverage of our new book, Gods of Thrones, as well as putting George’s Fire & Blood to bed as we consider the final third of the book, starting with “The Dying of the Dragons: Rhaenyra Triumphant”. Anthony and I get things kicked off with a discussion of Lord Cregan Stark and his “Hour of the Wolf”. Then I welcome our old pal Kim Renfro (follow her on Twitter!) back to discuss women in Westeros, our the...more

  • “Gods of Thrones” – “Fire and Blood” – Part 2

    Dec 07 2018

    Anthony jones me once again as we discuss the second third of GRRM’s new Fire & Blood, as we consider from “Jaehaerys and Alysanne: Their Triumphs and Tragedies” to “The Dying of the Dragons: Rhaenyra Triumphant”. Firewyrms! Mysteries of the wall! Dragon eggs beneath Winterfell! And many other interesting twists and tidbits we found in this fake history book detailing the first 150 years of Targaryen reign over Westeros. As always, if you enjoyed our coverage, p...more

  • “Gods of Thrones” – “Fire and Blood” – Part 1

    Nov 30 2018

    My Gods of Thrones co-author Anthony is back once again as we do a deep dive on GRRM’s latest work, Fire & Blood! We talk about events up to but not including “Jaehaerys and Alysanne, Their Triumphs and Tragedies”. Next week we’ll be reading up to “The Dying of the Dragons, Rhaenyra Triumphant”, before finishing the book the week after. This week’s all about Aegon, Maegor, and the third generation Targaryen that really steals the show, Jaehaerys! We ...more

  • “Gods of Thrones” – “Fire and Blood” Initial Thoughts

    Nov 23 2018

    Anthony and I talk about GRRM’s latest book, Fire and Blood, which is a complete and in-depth historical account of the 300 year old Targaryen dynasty in Westeros. We discuss our initial thoughts, anything that might have changed some of our thoughts in Gods of Thrones, any intriguing jumping off points for theory-crafting, and consider fan feedback. Also, Anthony has some stunning revelations about the possible origins of the rib-bone that God took from Adam to make the first woman in the...more

  • “Gods of Thrones” – Chattin’ Catelyn

    Nov 15 2018

    Anthony and A.Ron continue their deep dive into the characters and themes from their new book, “Gods of Thrones”. Now available on paperback! Today we’re talking about a polarizing character among the fandom, Catelyn Stark. What are the essential differences between Book!Cat and TV!Cat? What is her worst move in playing the Game? Who would win in an all-female Houseoff? How vital is Lady Stoneheart’s arc to understanding Catelyn, and why does the show skip it entirely? We...more

  • “Gods of Thrones” – Talking Tyrion

    Nov 08 2018

    It goes without saying that Tyrion Lannister is an extremely interesting character in A Song of Ice and Fire / Game of Thrones, but you’d think he’d make a poor focus for our book on Westerosi religion. After all, he’s famously skeptical of superstition and faith in a world full of magic, physics defying creatures, and powerful gods. But it’s precisely that contradiction that makes him so fascinating in this context! Join Anthony and I for a deep dive into Tyrion, the eve...more

  • “Gods of Thrones” – Introduction

    Nov 01 2018

    We have a special series of podcasts for you coming out over the next few weeks! Dr. Anthony Le Donne joins me today to talk about the new book we co-authored in the off-season, Gods of Thrones: A Pilgrim’s Guide to the Religions of Ice and Fire, available now on Amazon. The book is filled with fun analysis of the religions, cultures, and characters of Game of Thrones and delves into the real life history and religion that inspired GRRM when creating his world. We discuss our history with ...more

  • 310 - Mhysa

    Sep 13 2018

    And just like that, we put HBO’s Game of Thrones season three into the Bald Move history books. Again. “Mhysa” is an excellent way to wrap up the season and set the table for season four, as we get great work out of all our star-crossed lovers; Tyrion, Shae, Sansa, Jon, and Ygritte. Arya has some fine work servicing the fan’s desire to see her be the terrifying little murder beast we know she can be while simultaneously making us feel really, really bad for her lot in lif...more

  • 309 - The Rains of Castamere

    Sep 06 2018

    This week we have the pleasure of talking about one of the best, and most gut wrenching episodes of HBO’s Game of Thrones, “The Rains of Castamere”. The Lannisters score a decisive victory against the Starks in surprising and brutal fashion. Particularly rough is Arya, who is forced to witness the destruction of her family when she was oh so close to being reunited with them. Over in Essos, Dany provides a lone bright point as her captains’ valor and her reputation as Bre...more

  • 308 - Second Sons

    Aug 30 2018

    Jim and A.Ron consider the latest episode in our summer re-watch of season three of HBO’s Game of Thrones. “Second Sons” features the second happiest wedding we’ve ever seen on Westeros (which is damning with non-existent praise), Arya swinging from utter despair to something approaching optimism in her captivity with the Hound (the sweet, summer child), as newcomer Daario Naharis steals into Dany’s camp attempts to steal Dany’s heart. We discuss all this and ...more

  • 307 - The Bear and the Maiden Fair

    Aug 23 2018

    On this week’s episode of our summer Game of Thrones rewatch, “The Bear and the Maiden Fair”, Brienne picks on someone her own size, Joffery tries talking politics with his grandpa, Robb YOLOs his way through a fraught political position to buy some extra time to consort with his queen, and Sansa and Tyrion lament their respective fates. For feedback we discuss the relative intelligence of wights, debate the apparent height of the Wall, and consider people’s pet theories ...more

  • 306 - The Climb

    Aug 16 2018

    We’re back with another terrific season three episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones, “The Climb”. Of course the title refers to the Wildlings’ epic climb of The Wall, but also Littlefinger’s unhinged speech about chaos delivered to a shell shocked Varys. Both are amazing in their way, as is Lady Olena and Lord Tywin’s political duel in the Hand’s chambers. We discuss all this plus tons of fan commentary and questions! Leave Us A Review on Apple Podcast...more

  • 305 - Kissed by Fire

    Aug 09 2018

    Lots of things get “Kissed by Fire” in this episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones. The Hound. Jon Snow. Leslie’s Rose. But in all seriousness there is so much good packed into this hour of Thrones; Robb beheading an important bannerman in the pouring rain; Jaime venting a lifetime of frustration and regret upon an unsuspecting Brienne; Tywin managing to bitterly disappoint both of the children he has in his presence; and Dany looking more and more like the Conquerer that she t...more

  • 304 - And Now His Watch Is Ended

    Aug 02 2018

    We really enjoyed “And Now His Watch Is Ended”, the latest episode in our summer rewatch of HBO’s Game of Thrones series. Packed with intellectually satisfying intrigue, as well as one of the more satisfying action scenes in Thrones history, it has something for just about everyone. We ponder the comeuppance of Tywin’s children, the finer points of contract law in Essos, and the altruism of the Tyrells. Plus, a super sized mailbag and the promise of another next week! If ...more

  • 303 - Walk of Punishment

    Jul 26 2018

    Jim and A.Ron take in the episode “Walk of Punishment” of the third season of HBO’s Game of Thrones. Dany struggles to find a moral middle ground as she strikes a bargain for a massive slave army, Robb struggles with his command, Theon gets a glimmer of hope, Jaime is taught a harsh truth about the value of his family name. See you back next week as our summer re-watch rolls on! Check out the latest on A.Ron’s book Kickstarter! We’ve got stretch goals, and we also d...more

  • 302 - Dark Wings, Dark Words

    Jul 19 2018

    Jim and A.Ron do a retrospective review of HBO’s Game of Thrones episode, “Dark Wings, Dark Words”, same format, we first do a non-spoiler review then get in depth and spoilery at the end of the podcast. We discuss the Reed children who make their first appearance this episode, analyze Shae and Tyrion’s relationship, fear for Margaery’s life as she tries to dance around the psychotic Joffrey, and catch up with Arya, Jaime, Brienne, and Robb. Thanks for all the great...more

  • 301 - Valar Dohaeris

    Jul 12 2018

    Jim and A.Ron are back for the summer re-watch of HBO’s Game of Thrones season 3. Might as well start at the beginning, with episode 301, “Valar Dohaeris”. Daddy’s back in town, which is an interesting dynamic which finds Tyrion and Cersei trying to find their place, Margaery attempts to win over the peoples’ hearts and minds, Jon sells his role as double agent, and Dany struggles with the morality of liberating a continent using slave labor. All this, plus lots of ...more

  • Season Three Preview

    Jul 05 2018

    We’re back to ambush your podcast feeds with a summer re-watch of HBO’s Game of Thrones season three! If you’ve seen the show, you know this is a red banner year for the series with tons of the twists and tragedies we’ve come to expect. And if this is your first time through, relax! We’ll be doing our level best to keep all spoilers for future episodes and seasons confined to the very end of the podcast where you can easily skip them.  For this, our season three kic...more

  • 210 - Valar Morghulis

    Nov 13 2017

    Jim and A.Ron finish our retrospective re-watch of season two of HBO’s Game of Thrones with the finale, “Valar Morghulis”.  It’s a typical GoT finale, in that it does a great job of setting up the next season as something you can barely wait to arrive.  Arya could start super assassin training!  The White Walkers are marching on the Night’s Watch!  Dany’s dragons can spit fire!  We talk about these topics and a ton of last minute feedback before signing off wi...more

  • 209 - Blackwater

    Nov 06 2017

    Jim and A.Ron are nearing the finish line of their retro-re-watch of Game of Thrones season two.  This week is one of the all time great episodes, “Blackwater”.  There aren’t many heroes or villains in this one, just brave men fighting each other in desperate and bloody fashion.  Great action, but even greater character moments for Sansa, Cersei, Tyrion, and the Hound.  We have a lot of fun gushing over this episode,  then we bat clean up with feedback and our SpoiLore section ...more

  • 208 - The Prince of Winterfell

    Oct 30 2017

    Jim and A.Ron’s rewatch of HBO’s Game of Thrones continues with “The Prince of Winterfell”.  We’re really feeling the tension as the countdown to the invasion of Stannis approaches zero.  Also, Robb commits political suicide, the Halfhand recruits Jon for a dangerous mission, and Arya tries to escape Harrenhal before it’s too late.  All this plus feedback, and at the end of the podcast our SpoiLore section where we delve deeper into the history and lore of Wes...more

  • 207 - A Man Without Honor

    Oct 23 2017

    Jim and A.Ron consider “A Man Without Honor”, the latest season two episode on our re-watch of HBO’s Game of Thrones.  This episode is about revealing the true characters of people like Jamie, Cersei, Tyrion, Tywin, Shae, Sansa, and Robb, and the thing you take away is that these are all people, multifaceted, conflicting, contradictory, but in a way that feels human and real.  And Dany, is you know… looking for her dragons. We also discuss show spoilers at the very end of...more

  • 206 - The Old Gods and the New

    Oct 17 2017

    The realm is apparently unsafe for those beloved to Theon and A.Ron this week as we discuss the treachery of Theon sacking Winterfell, the role A.Ron had in the death of Roy Dotrice (94), along with everything else that this decidedly good episode of Game of Thrones had to offer. Leave Us A Review Join the discussion:  Email  |  Forums  |  Facebook  |  Twitter Theme song: Game of Thrones (80’s TV Theme) by Highway Superstar

  • 205 - The Ghost of Harrenhal

    Oct 10 2017

    Jim and A.Ron re-watched Game of Thrones episode “The Ghost of Harrenhal”, break it’s neck, and throw it off a parapet.  Just kidding, but we do bite into it like Jaqen into an apple.  We discuss tortured metaphors, Brienne’s rushing into commitments, Stannis’ reluctance to face The Truth, and Arya’s fun and exciting new friends at Harrenhal.  All this and a bunch of interesting feedback, and a lore and history packed SpoiLore section! By the way, we have an a...more

  • 204 - Garden of Bones

    Oct 03 2017

    Jim and A.Ron re-watch episode 204 of HBO’s Game of Thrones series, “Garden of Bones”, and mine a rich vein of almost forgotten Peak Tyrion. We also got gummed up with a clumsy arrival of Daenerys at the great city of Qarth, and Jim can’t take Lancel seriously, and we’re both really bummed out about the arrival of this season’s re-cast “Mountain”, but the arrival of the fantastic Papa Lannister single-handedly makes up for all of it.  Another great...more

  • 203 - What is Dead May Never Die

    Sep 26 2017

    Jim and A.Ron continue their re-watch campaign of HBO’s Game of Thrones with “What is Dead May Never Die”.  There is some really strong stuff in here; Tyrion’s canary trap for the Small Council, the heroic and badass last stand of Yoren, the introduction of two fantastic new characters in the forms of Brienne of Tarth and Margary Tyrell.  But there is also some less fun stuff; like anything to do with Shae. But all in all a great episode despite not featuring Dany or Robb...more

  • 202 - The Night Lands

    Sep 19 2017

    A.Ron and Jim continue their re-watch of season two of HBO’s Game of Thrones with “The Night Lands”.  On this podcast, we discuss the opposite of a headless horsemen, Tyrion’s tragic flaws, Theon’s ignorance of his personal history and that of his people, the Iron Islanders, and the moral quandary of the Night’s Watch.  Also, A.Ron apologizes for muffing up the White Raven lore from the previous podcast.  All this and tons of feedback coming your way! If you w...more

  • 201 - The North Remembers

    Sep 12 2017

    And now our (re)watch begins with “The North Remembers”, the season two premiere of HBO’s Game of Thrones series.  We’ll be working our way through the entire second season, the first half of the episode is entirely spoiler free for first time viewers, then we’ll have a mini-SpoiLore section after we play the end of pod theme music for people who are caught up on the books / show.  In this episode we’re appreciating Tyrion’s swagger, Sansa’s streng...more

  • Season 7 SpoiLore Wrap Up - BONUS Episode

    Sep 07 2017

    In a bonus wrap up SpoiLore episode for Game of Thrones season 7, A.Ron is joined by Kim Renfro, Senior Culture Writer for INSIDER, to discuss our thoughts on season 7 as a whole, leaks, how production spoilers impacted our coverage of this season, and what we think about the far off season 8.  Be warned, at the very end of the episode we do dish a bit on the last remaining unconfirmed leak for this season, which may come up next time.  If you’re a serious spoiler-phobe, make sure you shut...more

  • Season 7 Wrapup

    Sep 05 2017

    Jim and A.Ron close the books on the non-book spoiler part of our season 7 coverage of HBO’s Game of Thrones.  Of course, we’ll be back later this week to put the SpoilLore segment to bed, and don’t forget that starting next week we’ll be jumping head first into our rewatch of season 2, AKA the Tyrion Lannister Golden Years.  But for now, we dive into a heaping helping of feedback trying to sum up the experience of this seasons, and looking ahead to next.  Regardless of w...more

  • 707 - The Dragon and the Wolf

    Aug 29 2017

    Jim and A.Ron develop their thoughts on the season finale of HBO’s Game of Thrones, “The Lion and the Wolf”.  Many were pleased, yet there are some lingering resentments.  We try to talk through why we thought Cersei’s scheming, Sansa and Arya’s collaboration, and the Night King’s ultimate plan to cross the wall made a lot of sense both from a plot and character standpoint, but we definitely leave room for people who have trouble looking past how we arrived th...more

  • 707 - The Dragon and the Wolf - Instant Take

    Aug 28 2017

    Jim and A.Ron declare that the finale of HBO’s Game of Thrones, “The Dragon and the Wolf”, did enough to, if not completely excuse the issues of the past few episodes, at least have us back to being fully excited and eager to see the story resume… probably  sometime in 2019.  That’s a long wait, and for as much grief we’ve given the Double D’s here and there, we’re really going to miss their show while it’s away.  But that’s just two gu...more

  • 706 - Beyond the Wall

    Aug 22 2017

    HBO’s Game of Thrones episode 706, “Beyond the Wall” has been extremely polarizing for all of us fans, which, say what you will, isn’t something that you want to be saying about the penultimate episode of the penultimate season of the biggest TV show in the history of the world.  Are people too focused on picking nits?  Or has the storytelling really gone off the rails this season?  Whether we’re seeing the first signs of shark jumping or just hitting a rough patch ...more

  • 706 - Beyond the Wall - Instant Take

    Aug 21 2017

    A.Ron and Jim are loving this episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones, “Beyond the Wall”, that is admittedly about 20% ridiculous and 80% pure awesome.  I know that 20% is going to bother a lot of you guys and gals, but come on!  So many epic things are happening!  Ice zombies! Dragons!  Ice zombie dragons?!?  Don’t worry about the logic of Jon’s plan, or his idea of fighting a ridiculous single man rear guard, or the Night King’s questionable targeting decisions.  I...more

  • 705 - Eastwatch

    Aug 15 2017

    Jim and A.Ron try to talk about an incredibly entertaining episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones, “Eastwatch”, while also dealing the the fact that the main thrust of the plot is dubious at best.  And we’re not talking about jetpacks or wonky numbers of ships and wagons, we’re talking about the main mission North of the Wall.  Why does anyone think this is a good idea?  On the other hand, we’ve come around on the Arya and Sansa intrigue, and there is a whole lot el...more

  • 705 - Eastwatch - Instant Take

    Aug 14 2017

    Jim and A.Ron have seen the very latest episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones, “Eastwatch”.  There was some awesome stuff no doubt, a very special someone picks up a hammer, two brothers reunite, Ser Davos out-Han Solos Han Solo, and Sansa and Arya bicker like season one.  But the creaks and cracks of the Double D’s kicking the plot into hyperdrive are starting to be heard and felt.  Hopefully it’s just a minor case of dragon indigestion, and not a sign of more serious t...more

  • 704 - The Spoils of War

    Aug 08 2017

    Jim and A.Ron break down the latest episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones, “The Spoils of War”.  An episode with  the sheer spectacle of the might of Daenerys’ armies unleashed upon Westoros balanced by great character moments with the Stark children in Winterfell… and perhaps a budding romance between King and Queen, it’s basically everything you want in Game of Thrones.  We discuss Bran’s attachment to humanity and try to figure out exactly what he knows, a...more

  • 704 - The Spoils of War - Instant Take

    Aug 07 2017

    Jim and A.Ron have seen tonight’s episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones entitled, “Spoils of War”, and pronounce it hotter than dragon fire.  An instant all time great episode, with visual thrills and spectacle enough to make 10,000 complaints about jet packs and fleet sizes bend the muhfukkin’ knee.  If you don’t like it, then dracarys!  Enjoy our raving about how awesome Arya, Sansa, Brienne, Bronn, Drogon, Dany, Jon, and about a billion Dothraki screamers were f...more

    Aug 01 2017

    Jim and A.Ron do a deep dive into the latest episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones, “The Queen’s Justice”.  We discussed the long awaited meeting of Ice and Fire, Bran’s loss of humanity, Sansa’s rule, Euron’s incredibly swift and effective navy, the further humiliation’s of Jaime, and much more.  Add in a ton of community feedback and you got yourself a packed podcast.  And we’re not done!  Come back Friday for our SpoiLore edition, where we delv...more

    Jim and A.Ron “Stormborn” was a great episode of Game of Thrones, with tons of highlight scenes.  It also has a bit of a Euron and Sandsnake problem, but we don’t think it’s fatal, assuming Dan and David can tear off the affected portions of the show and apply medicinal ointment to stem the spread of ludicrous jetpackery and shipbuildery that threaten our collective suspension of disbelief.  We also discuss Sansa and Jon’s uneasy sharing of power, Littlefinger’...more

    Jim and A.Ron still don’t like the resolution of Arya’s Bravosi plotline, but admire a lot of the other goings on in the latest episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones, “No One”.  The problem is, that’s a big part of the episode and over two years of investment into Arya’s Faceless Men training, so, it’s no minor thing.  Other topics include the duality of Jaime, what’s next for King’s Landing, and is Sandor considering a second career as peop...more
