Five stars (after some math)

Entertaining and insightful, up there with Radio Westeros as one of my two favorite ASoIaF podcasts. Minus one star for their Barristan Selmy hot take; plus one star for the Jon Snow impression.

Smart, fun and all the good things

Love me some Girls Gone Canon. I love tuning it to listen other women killing it in the ASOIF community. Their analysis is insightful and adds a much needed female voice to some areas where it’s sometimes lacking. They’re keeping my love for ASOIF alive while we wait for TWOW coming out next week? AND rekindled my love for the dark materials text, win- win. Thanks girls for making me laugh and think and grow? in my literary loves. Did I mention my love for your question inflection? Also, the Jon voice is amazing and never ever change.

Renewing my <3 for asoiaf

Ok so when I realized they were doing Jon Snow I was like ew he’s so annoying and boring ugh but then by the end I remembered how he was actually a good character in the books unlike his slack jawed idiot show counterpart. The show has soured my love for the books so much that I can’t remember how they were even good and this podcast is very good at remedying that. Maybe I’ll even do a reread before TWOW’s release next weekend! Keep on going and for the love of Rhollor don’t think you need to be diplomatic about not liking the show it is so bad it has been since like season 3 see: turtlepaced on tumblr <3

My favorite His Dark Materials podcast

Discovered them whilst looking for podcasts that covered the His Dark Materials show. Just love that not only are they super insightful (but also critical to a fair extent), they're also funny. Totally can see myself vibing with them in real life. Just finished listening to their coverage of the books as well. Can't wait for them to cover more His Dark Materials stuff. Have truly deepened my love and knowledge of the books! Keep up the great work ladies! <3

The Jon voice is the worst.

Always informed, usually silly, sometimes too silly. I did not sign up for His Dark Materials, but since I am subscribed, I delete them, perhaps if I had HBO. Maybe someday. But the bad Kit Harington voice is so distracting, that I cannot always hear what is being said. It is like a drunk in an Irish pub speaking while eating a Shepard’s pie. I can see the mash fly through the air while the words are coughed out. I really cannot wait for Jon to be killed, so the voices stop.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

There prolific podcasters guide readers through a deeper understanding of not only Martin’s Westeros, but the art of our own world, past and present. Each episode includes the hosts navigating through a “A Song of Ice and Fire” point-of-view as if you were in a book club with them. Listeners can discover and theorize, but also must be prepared to laugh until you cry or cry until you laugh. This podcast is filled to the brim with punny pus, vintage voice-acting and classic catch phrases. Most importantly, there are Fievel references.

A review

Im pretty sure I accidentally left a Notacast review on the Girls Gone Canon podcast, epic fail; what kind of millennial am I? That has to be some kind of treason. Anyway, this podcast is a Gem and Chloe and Eliana are the coolest nerds I wish I could have been friends with in high school. Life has happened on a few occasions so I’m currently in the process of binging the Jon episodes as well as the HDM episodes, but nothing is more relaxing or entertaining than listening to these ladies gush about the books that have become a part of me, while going on random tangents that call back to my own journey as a nerd child/ lover of books (ummm Neopets And fairy paint brushes). As for the podcast itself, these ladies have puns, they have meta, they character insight, they do real thematic work, and both have written treatises that have lives of their own. I am honored to be a part of a fandom that has content creators like these two and you should listen, contribute to their Patreon, get on Twitter, all of the things

Trying to hard to make up for glaring holes

Overly sexualized but any quote makes one girl (Cloey) “want to f—-“ which makes you realize she never really has. I think she must have gone to a religious school because she never fails to compare unrelated and inapposite Bible passages to random and insignificant ones from the book. The other is more worldly, educated, humble, insightful and doesn’t try to make the podcast a manifestation of personal life she doesn’t have vis-a-vis projecting herself into fake anecdotes of real life. If you ever see their pictures it will be clear which is which.

More people should listen to this

At first, I was put off by the name of this podcast--this is either going to be Very explicit, or very very knowledgable. Thankfully, it is the latter. I love that I can listen to a podcast which has a fresh perspective and points out SO many things I had never realized (i.e. Jeyne Poole in sex slavery), and this is nowhere near my first GOT podcast. The girls speak like my friends and I do (woo millennials) and I find it very easy to learn from while also laughing at so many things. I'm captivated every episode and I anxiously await the next one. Now if only I could rationalize a $5/month patreon commitment I could listen to all those TWOW episodes. My only comlaint. PLEASE get better microphones. I will join Patreon if you get new mics. It hurts my ears some times... Keep up the amazing work, ladies!! 5 stars for sure. <3

Still learning!

I’m on a third re-read and the way you chose to work through the books by character arc has revealed even more about GRRM’s world than I have picked up on before. Thanks!!

Love my ladies!

I’m loving listening to this reread and the different approach they’ve taken. I’m currently re-listening to Sansa chapters because of my nostalgia for being a tween girl and all the drama of those volatile emotions. Also I can’t sit down and read for long stretches anymore on account of my 3 year old not allowing quiet contemplation and literary analysis. So this podcast is my life line to reading and feeling like I’m included in in-depth conversations about it. Also: my poor baby paralarvae!

I laughed, I cried, I left the stove on!

Girls Gone Canon is a truly excellent podcast. I started listening after hearing one (or both) of the hosts featured on History of Westeros. (I don't know if it was Chloe or Eliana. It was a crazy summer. Lots of crying.)Anyhoozle! Chloe and Eliana are hysterical. They provide valuable insight into the most important characters of this fandom, like Strong Belwas and Gerris Drinkwater, and their chapter-by-chapter analysis for each character brings new life to the books based on the smash HBO television series. 5 Darkstars out of 5.

So great!

I wanted to reread via POV and did an OCD sticky note division in the books but I didn't know where to start (I mean, who wants to start with Bran?) so this podcast is wonderful! So funny and insightful - I was almost wetting my pants listening to poor Quentin's fiasco Dragon "Tamer" episode. "Dog." I'm up to Sansa 7 in ACoK and have thouroughly enjoyed it. I listened to Davos' Fingers which I love, but was so sad when Brook left because girls just get it. Now I have two Brooks!

Love y’all but wish you guys hadn’t reviewed the show

Let me start by saying I love the POV by POV style of the podcast and REALLY enjoy your chapter analysis. That said, I wish you guys had never started doing the show reviews. Your dislike for the adaptation now that they’re past the books is audible and makes for an irritating listen. Specific examples bran saying his wheelchair was designed by a Targaryen for a crippled nephew and Chloe having a fit because that’s not book canon. Or saying, “I don’t mean to bash the show” and then spending the next ten minutes saying D&D basically don’t know what they’re doing. Again, love y’all but I think you’re a little too close to the book material for a balanced assessment of the tv show because it’s not the books you hold so dear. I’ll probably be skipping the show reviews for the next two weeks but I’ll be here with bells on for the book podcasts.

Fun, smart, awesome female perspectives!

It can’t be denied that (most/many) women readers connect to the ASOIF and GOT world in a bit of a different way than men. I love your perspectives, they are a subtle and refreshingly differ than many but equally great male commentary.

This podcast is “so fetch”

I was inspired to write a five star review after hearing only three POVs (these fair maidens actually have italics in their voices) and I plan to listen for the forty-nine years that it will take them to complete the rest. I have always been a groupie of Cliff and his Notes - and these two ladies are taking the ASOIAF insight to an extreme. My mind is blown each episode. Their dedication to, passion for, understanding of and respect for this story and it’s author is beyond astounding. They are also hilarious; their references and comparisons to modern pop culture and their own lives and experiences are so fun! And of course, the alternate ASOIAF universe they dream up is such an intrigue. So, if you are interested in: abundant amounts of powdered sugar sprinkled in to purple kush and rolled in Weirwood leaves, Brittney Spears dancing with albino Burmese pythons, Snow White and the Huntsman, creepy acoustic guitar playing dorm guys, food porn, Cinderella and the Glass Slipper, MTV Cribs, Greek Mythology, “Da Dip" by Freak Nasty circa 1996 or The Great British Baking Show - then this is the podcast for you. If you are pro-bacon, have ten jobs, love grandpa’s shenanigans, totally heart fashion and ship SanSan - then this castle is open for business and you may enter - for free or for a nominal fee via Patreon, where you will be awarded with additional knowledge bombs, art work and special merch.
