Perfect companion for a reread

I’m new to Podcasts. I found this one after trying out a few beforehand. I listen to two episodes, and became hooked. I didn’t read the books, until after I watched the television series, so I am new to the theories as well. This podcast is perfect for me, because I have read and read most of the books twice. As I decided to reread again, because of all the great hidden gems in the books. I really enjoy being able to reread and hear another point of view on my own timetable. Found this a week ago, and already in double digits in the episodes.

great, entertaining, super nerdy

This podcast reminds me of lit classes I took in college (in a good way). This is basically people with good critical reading skills talking about a super dense series in a way that’s incredibly pleasing if ASOIAF is your thing. I’ve been lurking in this fandom for years (reading and listening to the work put out by its active members) and Emmett and Jeff have always been great. I even subscribed to their Patreon! I’m currently rereading and I actually find myself wondering what they would think about certain plot points or theories or what have you that I don’t remember hearing them comment on. Good stuff!

well I’m in it now

I was in denial my first three ASOIAF podcasts that I was obsessed with ASOIAF but now that I’m deep into my fourth one, I gotta face the facts.

Love your guys’ meticulous work in analyzing the themes and the characters, and your often lyrical takes. I find myself rewinding parts just to listen to it again. Your rapport with one another is fantastic. Even though I’m a steadfast stannis hater and a battle scene skipper (sry guys), you got my vote. Here’s to hoping GRRM releases more battle scenes for yall soon.

Great work and thanks for sharing with us!
