Back to basics with Ivan and Red as they cover Season 2, Episode 6 of Game of Thrones, “The Old Gods and The New”. Keeping it at a tight 73 minutes, we still manage to fit in Theon and his castle taking, Arya being good at Improv but bad at planning, the maid from Downton Abbey, The Wildlings, The Spice King, Junior Prom North of the Wall, and much more.
Delightful X-Play and Chelsea Handler writer Guy Branum joins Red and Ivan to cover Season 2, Episode 5 of Game of Thrones. At great length we cover R’hllorism, which part of the map Stannis and Melisandre fucked up on, whether Loras was a bottom, sexual identity in fantasy, Pyromancers, a Qarth art opening, Michael Stipe in The Fall, and so much more.
Ivan and Red cover Season 2, Episode 4 of Game of Thrones. We discuss the appearance of our Westerosi selves, the best sound engineer, Joffrey having no idea how to work a crossbow and going full Clockwork Orange, the return of The Mountain, Fat Vizzini, a whole new meaning to firecrotch, and more!
Ivan and Red ride in two days late with twice the episode to cover Season 2, Episode 3 of Game of Thrones. We talk Craster kickin’ some Snow around, Luwin being a muggle, how Brianne’s more qualified to give it to Marjorie Tyrell than Renly, Sansa’s acting skills, the most accommodating wife ever, the drowned god and so very much more. We’re late. We’re sorry. It will probably happen again.
I’m just going to call her ‘fire Yoko’ from now on.

Caitlin Gill (@caitlinistall) is back with Ivan and Red to cover Season 2, Episode 2 of Game of Thrones! We discuss felling our enemies with Sword Tiaras, Skyrim’s influence on Game of Thrones, Arya’s Meg Ryan haircut, Gendry’s makeover, the testicle CG crew, Varys’s lack of mustache, the rule of threes, potatoes, and listen all the way to the end for a brief but special post script.
We’re back to our roots, with Ivan and Red covering the season premiere of Game of Thrones. We talk secret previews, Sam Tarley’s auditioning skills, STANNIS, Peter Dinklage acting into a mirror, sibling love, Joffrey coming into his own as King, bastard murder montage, CGI budget related to Dire Wolf growth, and so much more.
Sean Keane and Caitlin Gill join Ivan and Red for Red Loves Game of Thrones! Sean discusses watching all 9 Oscar movies in a row (with a break to perform at Cobb’s), Lex Luthor in a power suit, how Red will never watch Lost, and finishing with a Game of Thrones themed Leonard Maltin Game with excessive talk of rotation. Playing of The Leonard Maltin is courtesy of Doug Benson, who has much more Len Maltin as well as incredible guests on his podcast Doug Loves Movies.
