I snore loudly ,

Nothing better than seeing a new episode downloading

These ladies made me rethink the entire book series. I used to read Sansa chapters with such loathing, now she is one of my favorite characters. Same with Quentyn, as I had never thought of that plot as a brilliant deconstruction of the heroes journey. While I prefer their book discussions, I also love their takedowns of the later seasons of the show. Brilliant work you two. Keep it up!

Pleasantly surprised

I enjoy this much more than I thought I would. I first learned of your podcast when Preston Jacobs mentioned on his that he likes you. I thought I loved Dorne but I have absolutely nothing on you too.

Edit: I’m in the midst of a total re-listen and just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy this.

Thank god this exists

I’ve been fuming about D+Ds toxic masculinity fart fest of a “lets wildly misunderstand literally every single theme” of a “Tywin and Tyrion are awesome as fukkk” of an adaptation for several years now and really wish I would have found this podcast earlier. But binging it is very cathartic, so thank you.
