VoK 118: The Rogue Prince (by George R. R. Martin) – “The Blacks” Edition


Dragon

Fashionably late as only the Blacks can be, vassals Duncan (Valkyrist), Zach (Alias), Nadia, Peter (Shellfish), Leigh (LordManderBlee), and Michael (Mordion)  review and dissect the latest novella by George R. R. Martin, entitled The Rogue Prince.

During the episode, they lament Daemon Targaryen’s transformation from “cool dark” to “scumbag dark,” the implications of Martin’s new Wikipedia-writing style, and the arcane origins of dragonglass.

Edited by Shellfish (Peter), actually before the Krakens and Dragons but Bina007 forgot to check Skype and so didn’t publish first. The ladies of VOK should on no account allow the late publication to influence their opinion of Shellfish’s manliness.

game-of-thrones-season-4-episode-9-the-watchers-on-the-wall-wildlings-hbo

Patrick the Tall leads Imogen.OB, Nadia, Alix (Aiwendil), Peter (Shellfish), Jan (LeechLord), Kelvin (Brum Riverlander) and Eddie (Teddard) in a particularly derailed… ahem, I mean detailed discussion of Watchers on the Wall.

VoK 107: WolfCast – “The Mountain and the Wiper” (S04E08 Review)


u47oWolfcast tackles the latest episode of Game of Thrones. Due to a pressing cricket emergency, the reins of the podcast are unceremoniously thrust upon an ornery and sleep-deprived Shellfish (Peter) who desperately tries to keep the sled on track as posh birds Bina (Bina007) and Imogen (Imogen.OB), béret wearing baguette toter Alix (Aiwendil), the vertically endowed windmill operator Patrick (Patrick the Tall), viper-mourner Nadia (Nadia) and newcomer Kelvin (Brum Riverlander) discuss the geography of the North, evil dresses, crimes against Manwoody, duelling laws in France and everything inbetween.

VoK 105: Blackadder (BBC series)


Ba4

For lack of a Game of Thrones episode to comment on, this week Wolfcast reviews the famous 80s British historical comedy Blackadder. Imogen.OB, expert on all things Britain, is this week’s lead host, diving into the mysteries of British history and comedy with Viking Patrick the Tall, expert bear-fighter Peter (Shellfish) and baguette-eating, beret-wearing Alix (Aiwendil).

The season-by-season discussion is very evenly divided as follows:

00:00 – Introduction, favorite seasons, quotes and characters
10:10 – Season 1: The Black Adder
17:41 – Season 2: Blackadder II
51:28 – Season 3: Blackadder the Third
1:08:04 – Season 4: Blackadder Goes Forth
2:12:08 – Aftershow: “One night, Marry, Scorpions”, Blackadder actors and their careers, Imogen’s TV show recommandation, Blackadder and social issues, “Ask Imogen – British Slang Edition”, How to properly address the Queen of England, parallels between Blackadder and ASoIaF, European politics, Peter/Patrick fanfiction, Velociraptors & more

This podcast contains spoilers for all aired episodes of the Blackadder canon and potential spoilers for A Clash of Kings and by extension the Game of Thrones TV series.

VoK 104: WolfCast – “Mockingbird” (S04E07 Review)


tumblr_n5xht4ajqX1rmaq8ro1_400

Welcome to this week’s Wolfcast in which the wolfpups seem to be at a loss on how to structure their conversation. Providing a very in depth and detail oriented review is Alix (Aiwendil), Imogen.OB, Patrick the Tall and Peter (Shellfish) as our lead host.

There will be no aftershow this time, because of the unusual length of the main part of the show. This will not mean however that this is a boring or shenanigan-free episode. Enjoy.

Warning: Contains spoilers for all published books in George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire.

Edited by Sir Patrick The Tall.

793px-Inger_Edelfeldt_-_The_Scouring_of_the_Shire

Join the Fellowship of Vassals for the final episode of their epic eight part re-read of JRR Tolkien’s Lord of The Rings. In this episode, Bina007, Shellfish (Peter), Nadia, Middlecyclone (Amanda), Whiteraven (Brett) and EastTexasDirewolf (Shane) discuss chapters 5 to 9 of The Return of the King and the Appendices.

Topics of discussion include the logistics of Maiar reincarnation; the sex lives of elves; badass ninja hobbits; whether, if Galadriel had a beard, she would be more attractive to Gimli; the ineptitude of the White Council and the relative merits of a wiffle bat and a cricket bat in the event of a Zombie apocalypse.

The chapter discussion runs up to 1h 9m and the appendices to 2h.

This podcast contains spoilers for the works of Tolkien and George R R Martin.
