In the Game of Thrones, either you win or you die. In the case of the viewing audience though, we all win! For seven years now, Game of Thrones has striven to become the last, great bastion of “event” TV; the broadcast almost everyone tunes in to on a weekly basis (mostly because we’re all petrified of spoilers). Punslayer Dion of the Babbling Brooks and Quinny: Third of his Name and Lord of the Buffet are joined by their good friend, Erin: Grand Geek Maester of the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, and proprietor of spiritous liquors in the fine establishment known as Jangling Jacks.

This podcast is a wrap-up of the 7th season of the TV series, a discussion about the differences between book and show, and a look at Game of Thrones as a whole: what does it mean to people, and why is it such a cultural phenomenon? We finish up with some theories and speculations on the future of the series; join us on Facebook to share your prognostication of what’s to come in GoT’s final season…
