I mean… it’s ok

The content and discussion is pretty good but if you’re going to host a podcast on a fantasy show, you probably should figure out how to pronounce the characters’ names first.

Valid

James is awesome, I agree with his view points and is fun listening to someone whose so invested in the show, while making valid and succinct points. Critics on the other hand make me want to fast forward until James parts again. Kind of frustrating and makes long, drawn out, pointless arguments that maybe come from someone who is more qualified to review the books rather than the show. Good on ya James! Appreciate the updates !

Terrible podcast

I started the first couple of minutes of each episode, but then decided that “life’s too short” to continue listening to Darren’s obnoxious voice, so I skipped to the last 5-10 minutes for the wrap up. I give it a nice, solid 0/10. F rating.
