Boring, Awkward, Dry

Joanna Mason gives the most awkward interviews. I feel sorry for the people who contribute their time to the show. The show dry and boring, besides. Look elsewhere.

A great TV and Film Podcast

Richard and Joanna provide a great perspective on Game of Thrones and I look forward to hearing them opine about other shows. You can tell that some of the reviewers didn't even listen, they are just giving Joanna the misogynistic hate rant treatment. Try this out if you are a normal person, I think you will enjoy it.

I like Joanna Robinson

I listen to all three of the GoT podcasts Joanna does and I know she gets a lot of hate. So let me just say I like her. I like her takes, I like her level-headed response to criticism, I like her insights, I like her sometimes-corny jokes, I like her dedication to the series, and I like her voice. I’m not on twitter and even if I were, I wouldn’t jump into the fray to defend anyone because that’s annoying. But I will say it here: I like Joanna! That is all.

Good Analysis, leave political agenda at the door

Please stop with the brown people mantra. It’s a tv show. The Dothraki could have just as easily been Russian Cossacks. If anything white people are shown as cowards and weak. If the show is inherently racist, please provide concrete evidence to further substantiate this claim.

Not worth your time

Who do they think they are? It is a t.v. show! Not real life, If you don't like the show then don't watch it or Review it!

Social Justice

Joanna makes everything she is on unlistenable. She’s Lena Dunham for your ears, I could care less about your entitled rich white girl view on a fantasy world set in a completely different time and culture.

Solid analysis, poor production

The first half of every episode is great. Richard and Katie give quality analysis mixed with enough humor to keep everything breezy and easy to listen to. Their reads on the subtext and meta of Game of Thrones and it’s place in the culture are probably the best in the biz. This podcast has become an essential listen for season 8! But good god, the interviews. The big problem is the audio. How does a show like Fighting in the War Room, where hosts are based in different places and constantly traveling, have crystal clear audio for its far-flung hosts but the interviews sound like they’re being farted through a Motorola razr? It makes them basically unlistenable for driving because it’s tough to make out what the guest is saying over the sound of the road. For a publication as quality as Vanity Fair, you’d expect way better.

Great Interviews + Insight

I love the interviews that you include! The behind the scenes stories are fascinating and show us just how much work goes into creating this series. I enjoy the social commentary, and I think it’s important. Do I always agree? No, BUT it always makes me think. Thanks for providing such great content!

Painful

This is the most painful GOT podcast! I love the show/books and listening to people continuously say “dislike” was so frustrating. I’m not sure why these two are doing a podcast with so much hate. I don’t recommend this...

Y’all get the best guests

Queen Joanna of House Robinson, I’m one of your bannermen and follow all of your work. What I love about this pod particularly are the amazing guests you are able to interview. Learning about the behind the scenes process of Thrones has added so much to my viewing experience. Keep up with the great work. Can’t wait to see what shows you cover in this feed next.

Great podcast!

I enjoy this podcast, although the interviews are my least favorite part. I wish they would improve the sound quality on the interviews. Some have been very hard to understand. I enjoy the commentary between the hosts much more than interviews.

Nice contrast to other GOT podcasts out there

I’ve never rated a podcast before but felt that you guys were getting bombarded by too much hate. The podcast is insightful and thoughtful. It is a nice departure from the male dominated and lore-heavy Thrones podcasts. Sometimes I don’t always agree with your takes, but that’s ok. We can’t all live in our safe spaces. PS - love the cast and crew interviews too, keep it up!

They’re missing the point.

All of Joanna’s podcasts are terribly hard to listen to. She injects real world social issues into a fictional tv show. There’s way too much time spent complaining that the writers are racist and sexist pigs because Daenerys’ advisors are men or that the rapist nation burning (but non-white) Dothraki died. This. Is. A. Fake. Tv show. It’s the story. And honestly how things would actually be in a world like the one game of thrones is set in. There’s a bunch of time being hung up on all that and no REAL insight into deeper themes of the show. It’s just a point by point recap and then virtue signaling. Try binge mode. They really get it and will help you gain insight into how amazing this story really is. Even with its flaws. The point of the show is not to give some timely trendy statement on killing the patriarchy. They focus only on race and gender when 99% of the other fans/cast/crew aren’t differentiating race or gender when telling this story. I honestly don’t even think about what race or gender a character is until hearing this. I just see them as people that I either enjoy watching or don’t. Tell me which seems closer to racism/sexism. If you want to be part of the social justice echo chamber, then this is the podcast for you. If you want to gain further insight and appreciation for this epic once in a lifetime story unfolding before our eyes, just listen to binge mode.

Always enjoy Joanna’s takes and humor + great interview

All hail the Joanna-verse

This is my first time writing a iTunes review literally ever, but I think I listen to every single podcast that features Joanna Robinson. Obviously I love her work and I trust her taste in pop culture 100% of the time (boo Umbrella Academy, yay magicians)!If I had to have one little quibble with this podcast in particular, it’s that Joanna doesn’t laugh at Richard’s jokes enough! I know that’s silly, but I think even on little gold men, Joanna humors Richards funny asides more. I like that you want to get down to business, but I feel bad that Richards not getting any credit for his comedy gold! Otherwise, love the podcast, signed up for vanity fair because of this podcast (tbh guys that deal is a steal! Why are you complaining?). Keep up the great work!

Still Watching? More like Still Listening!

Been following Joanna and Richard's podcasts and can say that this is a perfect addition to their arsenal. The interviews are insightful and I love their minigames at the top of each episode. Also, PAY FOR VF PEOPLE! Having subscribed last summer, I can say that its honestly worth it. Unlimited online reading is great but getting the print version is even better! Don't even get me started on the tote!

Refreshing

Love to listen to all Joanna, Dave and Neil. They have great insight into dramatic theatre and what makes it good so listening to their take on GOT, GRRM, and Benioff and Weiss is really entertaining. I thoroughly enjoy every minute of the podcast, am disappointed when the episode ends and can’t wait for the next episode to drop. Congrats guys!
