No bogus banter, just enlightening analysis

A great podcast - I am not a super fan of the series - but I am super fan of this podcast for the great analysis and insight on the characters, plot and behind the scenes going’s on.
There are lots of podcasts where it takes forever to get to the analysis of the episode. This is not one of those podcasts. Here you will find you will be immediately immersed into the episode - this podcast has made the series so much more meaningful. Thank you!

Pretty Darn Good

I wish I had known about this podcast sooner that the last season of GOT. James’ experience on set really brings some fantastic insight to what is happening on the show and behind the scenes.

Decent GoT podcast

I listen to this podcast for James’ inside scoop and insight. Darren is honestly kind of annoying to listen to and doesn’t bring a lot to the show. I don’t find that the two of them have a lot of chemistry together but James is knowledgeable, and he’s what makes the podcast worth your time.
