Helping you to fight away the hours of boredom is Alix(Aiwendil), Peter(Shellfish), Imogen.OB, Patrick the Tall and Nadia as our lead host.

VoK 91: WolfCast – “Oathkeeper” aka It’s Different (S04E04 Review)


Tom Meier's Darkworld miniature of Brienne of Tarth.

Tom Meier’s Darkworld miniature of Brienne of Tarth.

Welcome to this week’s Wolfcast in which Bina007 gets sentimental over Jaime-Brienne; Alix (Aiwendil) flips tables about the Jon-Bran reveal; Nadia wonders what happened to Brienne’s helm; Bing (Shoeshiner) enjoys people learning to read; Peter (Shellfish) gets angry with Jon for leaving Longclaw lying around; and Patrick mutters ‘it’s different’ as his heart is broken.

The aftershow begins at 1h17m and covers the implications for the culture of white walkers of the final scene; whether show King’s Landing is more like Rome or Byzantium; and, er, Made In Chelsea.

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

VoK 89: WolfCast – “Breaker of Chains” aka Flipper of Tables (S04E03 Review)


images

Welcome to this week’s remarkably calm and silly Wolfcast review of The Breaker of Chains, in which Shellfish (Peter) decries the lack of krakens in Denmark; the Podcast Bard (Jed) advocates the use of Molestown condoms; Patrick The Tall baptises Middlefinger “Petyrphile”;  Nadia flips all kinds of tables; Imogen.OB suspects the Nordic contingent’s knowledge of Molestown brothels; Regula Roone (Seif) wonders if we will see Satin and Bina007 wonders what FTWard’s problem is with potatoes.

If you just want to get to the discussion of the notorious Jaime-Cersei crypt scene, it starts at 1h17m.  The unusually long and gag-free aftershow begins at 1h41m. It is surprisingly earnest and covers everything from Westerosi religion to the importance of direwolves to the Stark children to the nature of Bloodraven and more besides.
