“I’ve been listening to this podcast, along with a few other GOT podcasts for a while now. This probably ranks 4th out of the 4. It’s definitely not as bad as the one where the hosts just keep laughing and retelling the same jokes and impressions over and over and over and over again.
However, I agree with some of the other commenters that the host who hasn’t read the books can be a bit frustrating at times. And yes, it does seem that he hasn’t watched the episodes or didn’t really pay attention to the content. At this point, if he had only been watching the shows, he would be better at remembering the names and other key points. His perspectives are balanced by the often insightful comments from the book reader, though. I wish he would talk more.
As for “nit picking”, I don’t agree. A type of fan exists that only wants fawning reviews of their favorite shows. If that’s the case create your own podcast or go live with the producers of the show. Those people are fanatics. I think critique is great. I don’t want to hear only good about the show, myself, or anything else, except my little niece. She’s pretty cute. If that’s what you want, there are shows like that. They mostly involve endless laughing, bad impersonations, and sound effects.
Here’s the thing: I choose to believe that they are in earnest and trying to deliver a quality product. The issues that I (and others)have with the podcast can be easily remedied: just have the non book reader pay better Attention to the show or write the names down for characters before the show. Alternatively, have the book reader dominate the podcast. I’m not sure how long I’ll keep listening, as it is getting increasingly frustrating to listen to the show. Hopefully, they read their reviews. I really believe the show can get better if they want it to.”
