This podcast gives a broad perspective on Game of Thrones and relates it to real world politics. It's hand down my favourite GoT podcast. Bring it back in 2017!Read full review »

This non-recap podcast analyzes GoT in the context of real-world politics, culture, history. The focus is true analysis, succinct & compelling. Uniquely great GoT podcast. The hosts are intelligent, eloquent, & steeped in both GoT & universal knowledge. They include the National...Read full review »

I found the Citadel to be the best of the weekly commentary podcasts. I hope it will be back for the final two seasons.

After each episode came out on the Sunday, I would listen to this podcast midway through the week to tie me over until the next episode. I really liked the theories they put out and the themes they cover.

I liked when Laura Hudson wrote about Game of Thrones for Wired and talked about it on the Gamelife podcast. Her cohost, Spencer Ackerman, adds a security or strategic perspective you won't find in most other Game of Thrones podcasts. I've listened to other podcasts about the show, and...Read full review »

Loved the unique contributions of the hosts - they provided a level of analysis that many other Game of Thrones episodes didn't cover. Please do the podcasts next season!!!Read full review »

Great pod- detailed and thoughtful analysis.
IronMaven80 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/29/16
The Guardian's GoT show has become a must listen for me as soon as it loads. Lauren Hudson and Spencer Ackerman are both book readers who discuss GoT and relate the real world to it. Worth subscribing to if you want serious, in depth discussion. Well done.Read full review »

I find Spencer's input really interesting but Laura is a difficult listen, seems to be deliberately contrary. Overall an interesting listen but would recommend Cast of Kings above this.Read full review »

I look forward to listening to this every Monday during this season and can hardly get enough. My only complaint is it sometimes does not seem long enough!

Just discovered this podcast - excellent content and production quality.
GetPuggly via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/16/16
Laura's insistence on mispronouncing Daenerys, and using the incorrect term Brotherhood Of Banners, makes it impossible to take her seriously. No excuse when her co-host gets both right. Presumably he is too polite to correct her, which is a pity.Read full review »

With very smart and fun hosts. Thank you!
csp1212 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/07/16
Title is pretty self explanatory. Title for this weeks episode 6/6/16 spoiled the return of a character thought dead and when you can't watch the episode on first international airing (2am here in the Uk and most people with jobs can't watch it until that evening) the podcast often spoils...Read full review »

Love listening to this to get added perspective on episodes of Game of Thrones
Lifeisadance via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/04/16
My favorite GoT podcast out there right now. I love the smart discussion on the big themes of the show as opposed to the endless books vs show comparisons or the constant picking of nits that other GoT podcasts often trade in.
sguido7 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/31/16
Really thoughtful and well articulated analysis of GoT which really illuminates the show and draws out very insightful parallels with the real world. Fantastic podcast - thanks guys
JT1985pet via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/24/16
A gem of a podcast - engaging hosts tackling interesting angles and themes. I'm starting to look forward to the podcast as much as I do to the show itself. One request - please ditch the recap section at the start. It sounded stilted and awkward and it added nothing to the show. Other than...Read full review »

Love the premise of this podcast and it’s cool that the US national correspondent for the Guardian is lending his voice and thoughts to it.
meghasuresh via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/23/16
Laura Hudson constantly pronounces the names of characters incorrectly. It's pedantic but it drives me mad. I know that accuracy is tricky with source material from both the HBO show and the novels. However, this is podcast about the TV show, so Hudson should probably imitate pronunciation on...Read full review »

Interesting discussions on the wider themes of the show - a great supplement to other more descriptive GOT podcasts.
Scc21 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/16/16
Very intelligent podcast, and unique among the many, many game of thrones podcasts. I appreciate the analysis of broader themes. Doesn't get bogged down in the nitty gritty details.Read full review »

Great, thought provoking conversations on the themes of thrones, even/especially when you don't necessarily agree (or when they don't).Read full review »
Hanktktktkt via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/11/16
This is a crazy-good podcast on GoT. The hosts ability to speak cogently on both the show, thematic construction, and issues of our day ("toxic masculinity"? I mean, come ON!) mean this has just gone to the top of my podcast play list.Read full review »

Where was this podcast 5 seasons ago?
Bobbiegun via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/04/16
Just the right amount of detail for casual fans who only know GoT from the show, yet the perfect level of analysis for in-too-deep readers looking for an exploration of the story's over-arching themes. Full disclosure: Spencer Ackerman is a friend and I was there when he used Longclaw to...Read full review »

These guys are awesome. Great insights into the show and the books!
AElsie via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/03/16
I was a big fan of Laura Hudson’s recaps on wired, but these are even better.
Brave PIxels via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/02/16
This podcast is killer. Amazing insight into this great TV show. It should be everyone's cliff notes after each episode.Read full review »

Ms.
This was great! I love the idea of relating the themes of the series to the real world, it really demonstrates the relevance great works of fiction can have to our lives. Lara and Spencer are great hosts and I look forward to the rest of the series.
