A Game of Thrones Podcast – Episode 8

Episode 8 – Vodka and the Shadow Child

The gang assemble to discuss season 2, episode 4, Garden of Bones.  Amazing consensus ensues on the Douche Bag of the Week (hint: blond, 14-years old, and entirely too jacked up for his own good), and much joy is taken from the Bad Ass of the Week choices.  The decision is made to try this crazy contest thing one more time, so listen for details on how to win a super cool Game of Thrones item.

A Game of Thrones Podcast – Episode 7


Proffitt, Dieter, Corinne and Sean discuss Season 2, Episode 3: What is Dead May Never Die (although it takes them five minutes to get the title right).  Much merriment is had as they cover favorite scenes, DB and Bad Ass of the week, and how the season is shaping up so far.  As a bonus, they actually manage to hold off on book/show comparisons until later in the show.  Huzzah!

Remember: you can enter our “Sex or Violence” contest in a few ways.  Comment below, respond to one of the tweets we will send out this week, or comment on one of the posts on our Facebook page in which we ask “Which will there be more of on this week’s episode of Game of Thrones: Boobs or Blood?”  We’ll tally up the results as we watch the show and a weekly winner will be chosen from among the correct answers for a shout-out on the podcast.  At the end of the season, we will draw from the list of weekly winners and send one lucky listener a Game of Thrones prize!  (Note: “boobs” is a general term we are using to cover all sex acts. Violence has to end in death to count as “blood”).
