A Storm of Swords: Part Four

It's the end of the Summer of Swords and we've got to commemorate it... Should we get a sword? Also time for initial thoughts on the new LOTR show (12:30 to skip warmup). Dan brings back everyone's favorite Tyrion theory, and we love Jamie and The Hound now. Your favorite podcasters reveal they have very different tastes in banner art.

Next week we're starting Gideon the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir!

A Storm of Swords: Part Three

Luke and Dan come out hot with a borderline problematic ageist rant. Dan wants to if it is possible for the bar of most evil to go any lower and Luke wants to know when the Westeros iPhone coming out. Tyrion come on, you know what you were doing.

A Storm of Swords: Part Two

Dan betrays our childhood with a very hot take on Star Wars (7:50 to skip). Deep dive into weddings in this one; we're talking payment plans, logistics, and Tyrion's feelings. Our solution may not be perfect but we gotta figure out how to deal with captives. Also, make sure to get all your agreements in writing!

A Storm of Swords: Part One

Dan holds firm in his refusal to watch any Game of Thrones content. Meanwhile Luke can't help but get hyped (9:41 to skip). This episode starts with a repeat of a classic, but quickly turns into an in depth discussion of Westeros prison reform. Dan announces his favorite character, and Luke wants someone to recognize Tyrion for once in his life. Lastly, a massive propaganda campaign is finally unveiled for its true purpose.
