Personal politics over GOT

I don’t mind negative outlooks in a show that isn’t holding up to its nature or character arcs. But bombarding us with personal politics to curve the nature towards your political view is not any better either.

Rabbinical discourse with a feminist flavor.

If you like your GoT commentary pithy and discursive instead of fangirlish and gossipy, this podcast is for you. They are connecting characters and events in the series (which is fictional) to current political events and trends (which are real), and calling out misogynist/ableist/racist tropes where they view them in the series. There actually is a fair amount of gossip too, which is fun. (More gossip please guys!) Ackerman and Hudson riff off each other and at times push each other to deepen the analysis. If you like yelling at your podcasts as much as you yell at the screen during the show, this is for you! Solid A.

Thoughtful reviews

I can’t honestly but in to all the hosts’ correlations from GoT to issues today. But this is a consistently intelligent and thoughtful podcast

Awful

I listen to tons of GoT podcasts some negative about aspects of the show and some positive - mostly . This podcast takes it to a different level. They spent 37 minutes tearing apart the show and talking about how much they hated an episode and the characters in it. When asked if there was anything he liked about the show one of the speakers said there was a single good aspect of the show. Why do you have a podcast if you can find one good thing about this show.

Uber left

While I enjoy the way they articulate their opinions and agree with some their criticisms regarding some of the story choices the writers have made. On certain matter Their criticism on some of the character decisions does seem somewhat limited in terms of perspective or the complete context for an overall character arc, even though they present themselves as if they are taking all of this into account.

Some interesting themes, but overly critical

Why are they so nitpicky? I prefer other podcasts like Oyster Clams and Cockles. I truly don’t understand why they were so critical of Arya in the library scene in season 8 episode 3. She had a concussion, give her a break!

Sexist

You hold daeny to a MUCH higher standard than anyone else. Crucifying her for leading the Dothraki to their deaths (even though she didn’t mean to) is wrong. This is living vs. the dead. Why is this any less their fight than it is hers?
