VoK 287: A Westerosi Travelogue – Visiting GoT Locations In Northern Ireland


13043298_10156760163735524_8912818775732015234_n

In this episode Bina007 describes a recent road trip to Northern Ireland to visit Game of Thrones locations. It’s a beautiful country and seeing locations is a great motivation to get to otherwise quite obscure but lovely villages and parks. That said, it’s not yet very well set up to receive GoT tourism so this podcast aims to give you some pro-tips that we wish someone had told us before we’d set off!

VoK 285: WolfCast Presents “The Red Woman” (GoT S06E01 Review)


gallery-1455291934-michael-mcelhatton-iwan-rheon-got

VOK Wolfcast roster changes this year, with Dagos_Rivers (Glen) leading the pack and joined once again by Beric175 (Matthieu) – who mysteriously disappears half-way through the recording, and joined by (relative) newcomers: DarkSister24 (Claire) and ChurchofStarryWisdom (David). They review the launch episode of Season 6, of Game of Thrones; they discuss each location, and associated characters; provide their lemoncake scores and make some predictions of where the storylines are going.

The WolfCast discuss whether Season 6 will outperform Season 5, how long the show will last; are the writers eager to end the show, and if certain storylines *cough* Dorne *cough* will survive much longer.

Also discussed:
-Official posters for each Season, and which is the best
-What is this ‘Heads Up’ game, as seen on Ellen?
-We reminisce on E4’s ‘Misfits’.
-How hard it is to get into a show when it is massive, like
Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead.

Running Time: 01:45:50

VoK 283: Cold Comfort Farm


article-1250515-08425697000005DC-510_468x246

There’s something in the woodshed!

Amanda (Middlecylone) and Bina007 discuss Stella Gibbons’ hilarious 1932 novel satirising rural melodramas, as well as the 1995 British film adaptation starring Kate Beckinsale, Stephen Fry and Rufus Sewell. There is much mollocking, clettering, and heaving of porridge, not to mention some of the worst West Country accents committed to tape.

VoK 282: War and Peace (BBC TV, 2016)


p03c4373

Bina007, Stuart (Firenzed) and Imogen.OB discuss, in various permutations, Tolstoy’s epic tale of love amidst the Russian aristocracy during the Napoleonic wars.

To start, Bina007 & Firenzed cover the major story arcs of the mini-series, the depiction of war and other adaptations of the novel. Then at 1hr 7mins, Bina007 & Imogen.OB get into an in-depth discussion of the novel and the mini-series. Finally, the aftershow begins at 1hr 58mins and includes:  Intro to Firenzed, ASOIAF and Chekhov Wildfire; plug for Cockneymoot on May 1st at Blenheim Palace; a lot of Sega/Creative Assembly Empire and Napoleonic Total War chat; our thoughts on Napoleon more generally.

Contains spoilers for the the novel, its adaptations, and Napoleonic history, if such a thing is possible, as well as occasional references to A Song of Ice and Fire.

Music: Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture. This was also composed, like War and Peace, many decades after the battle of Borodino to commemorate Russia seeing of the perfidious French invasion.
