Solid podcast, but could be better.

Sean T. Collins, when he decides to show up, and Stephan “I totally agree” Sasse do a great job analyzing ASOIF, GOT and other works. However, they too often seem to hold strong positions that are contrary to convention for the sake of having a unique take. Worse, they often seem to be in agreement on these bold arguments from the onset, leading to a lack of discourse and general self-indulgence. I feel this show would be greatly improved by the inclusion of a third host with a different perspective.

Also, it is detrimental to pan voices hard left and hard right. There are any number of reasons why a member of the audience might be listening on a device that is not functionally stereo and also not summing to mono. For instance, listening with one earbud in place instead of two. In these circumstances, someone may hear only one side of the conversation and not the other. Panning slightly left and right gives both perceptible separation for stereo listeners and allows for single output listeners to hear both parties, albeit one louder than the other.

I do enjoy the show, I just think it could be better.

The Unrivaled Authority of ASoIaF

Not only do these two obviously love the source material and have some fantastic analysis on how the story reflects on the outside world, the way Sean and Stefan can reflect the outside world and current events back onto the story shows just how much care and thought is put into each podcast. If only more people were like Sean and Stefan.
