shy

Hey there, join us for episode 74 of our Great Linear Re-Read of A Song of Ice and Fire by G.R.R. Martin ! Today your hosts are Michael (Khal Wadege), Leigh (ChaoticNeutral1882), Matt (blu3arm0r), Varley, Jock (munrojock2) and Marie (Nymeria) and we cover the events of Cersei 4 from Feast, and Tyrion 4 and Bran 2 from Dance. We get to see an epic Small Council meeting, travel aboard the Shy Maid, and finally meet Bloodraven.  These chapters take place from March 16th to 20th of 300 AL.

As usual, spoilers for the entire published series but not for the show, nor for TWOW preview chapters. Come and listen to the guffawing of Pycelle by Varley, our troubles with Australian internet, and a great parody of Rick and Morty!

For those following along at home the next episode of the re-read will cover Dany 4 from Dance, Cersei 5 from Feast, and Jaime 3 from Feast.

game-of-thrones-logo-i21034

Long-time show hold-outs Bina007 and Nadia give in the to the hype and binge-watch Game of Thrones seasons 5, 6 and 7 while pop-culture queen Michal/Inkasrain stands aside and laughs as their heads explode.

In the first spoiler-free section, we discuss the impact of no-watchers vs show-watchers on the fandom in general and VOK in particular, and whether it’s better to watch with a crowd or alone.

At 20 minutes in we enter our show-spoiler part of the show with a general discussion of seasons 5 to 7. At 26 mins in we get into Season 5 in depth – at 48m, Season 6 and at 1hr2m, Season 7. The after show begins at 1hr 20m and there’s some TWOW spoilery-stuff at 1hr24m.
