Vassals of Kingsgrave (VOK) is a podcast for fans of fantasy fiction, particularly George R. R. Martin’s A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE and J. R. R. Tolkien’s THE LORD OF THE RINGS. We also love to chat about movies, TV shows, comic books, video games, anime, and fandom culture.
Since our first episode in June 2013, we have attracted over 50 regular contributors, and recorded almost 1000 hours of original content. Currently, our hosts span four continents, and argue in a variety of different accents, but the one language we all share is geek! Full episode archive available at VOKpodcast.com

Power in diversity
I haven’t listened to this podcast in a few weeks - after listening almost every day for a few months and just hearing the opening music made me smile! What’s great about Vassals is the diversity of the hosts. Always intelligent commentary. I actually found VoK on YouTube! And then found APOIAF from that channel. And I’m a female in my 50’s who lives in Kansas. Probably not your typical demographic! lol Anyway - keep up the great work - and that goes for all the hosts! You should do more Vollop! 🌻
Keeps getting better, been listening for years!
I no longer listen to podcast on Apple but I love this one so much I came back here to write this review! It is that great!
I wish they did more books! I listen to the station eleven episode all the time. So good.
