David Chen and Joanna Robinson walk you through each episode of the series with an episode of their own, adding in season and series reflections as well. While Joanna has read all of Martin's books, David has never cracked one, so they've covered the bases for fans of HBO's series. The duo begins episodes by responding to listener emails regarding the previous podcast episode. There, they both answer questions and react to fans' opinions before launching into their own recap, which is full of their own opinions, story analysis, and cinematic examination. Joanna and David clearly do a lot of research and make sure to include all points of view in their discussion and analysis, which makes their opinions feel really balanced and aware of the conversation surrounding the show. Episodes average one hour in length.

Morgan DeLisle

The Ringer’s Binge Mode podcasts are award winning, and Mal and Jason do not disappoint as they walk us through a thorough recap of every episode. The two step back from the major moments to provide backstory, reminding listeners of conversations and battles from previous episodes that provide context. All throughout their discussion they also provide huge theories and ideas that reach beyond theory, as well as their personal analysis of the show. As fans of the books, Mal and Jason also remind listeners of television variances from the original series and offer read-throughs.

Do you want a great group of friends who are all part of the A Song of Ice and Fire and Game of Thrones fandoms and want to talk to you for hours about both? Then Close the Door is the show for you. From book analysis and questions of what allegories may mean what to honest discussion of the relationship between those working on the show and those watching it, this group of friends is here for all of it. Interacting with the real-world aspects of social media, interviews, and reviews as well as the content itself, this is the group for invested fans, especially of Jaime and Brienne.

Still Watching: Big Little Lies
Vanity Fair critics Joanna Robinson and Richard Lawson are headed back to Monterey this spring to break down HBO's second season of Big Little Lies, episode by episode as it airs.

Morgan DeLisle

Not so much a recap as a conversation that assumes you watched the episode, Still Watching lets Joanna Robinson and Latey Rich tell us all of their thoughts on the TV series. Including awards for characters who are exceptional in the episode, favorite ships, and admissions of what our fanfiction hearts desire, the duo are a lot of fun to listen to as they take on the series. And if you enjoy them, Still Watching covers lots of shows you can keep up with as well.

Game of Thrones The Podcast
Jim and A.Ron review each week's episode of HBO's Game of Thrones and your feedback.

Morgan DeLisle

Hosted by A. Ron and Jim, Bald Move’s coverage of Game of Thrones includes a bit of everything. The duo walk through episodes sharing personal opinions on the choices writers made, comparing the TV series with what’s happening or has happened in the books, and keeping you informed of what is going on in the real world as far as interviews and press releases. They also spend a good portion of the SpoiLore episodes answering fan questions in depth, and I think that interaction adds a lot to the podcast. I also like that if they tell you what they don’t like, they’ll tell you what should have happened or tell you they don’t know a better way to do it. So practical die hard fans, this is the show for you. Episodes average one hour in length.

Nerdette Recaps Game Of Thrones With Peter Sagal
Peter Sagal of Wait, Wait… Don’t Tell Me joins Greta Johnsen and Tricia Bobeda of Nerdette weekly to scrutinize the latest Game of Thrones episode.

Morgan DeLisle

If you love Nerdette Recaps you will not be disappointed when they include Peter Sagal of Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me. He, Greta, and Tricia walk through episodes at a brisk pace that keeps things moving but doesn’t ignore what you want to hear about. The trio know their lore from the books, discuss the television show critically, and replay major soundbites before discussion so you can remember exactly what happened. I personally like that they keep things lighthearted and just really enjoy talking with each other because it feels like chatting with good friends and I always need more of that. Episodes average one hour in length.

Morgan DeLisle

I watch movies and shows with friends and discuss them all the time, but we never walk through them scene by scene as if the other person hadn’t seen it at all. We just discuss whatever major moments and plot points and character developments we want until we run out of material. Game of Owns is a lot like that and I appreciate it in a way because it feels really natural and resembles the real world. This is the place for fans to hope the books will come soon and believe that the fandom will never die, not the place for structures or rules of what to cover and when. Episodes average one hour.

Morgan DeLisle

From the expert in putting people to sleep himself, Game of Drones is Scooter’s way of making sure fans of Game of Thrones sleep soundly in their deep obsession with the show. Droning on with stories that vaguely follow the latest episode and characters that resemble their television counterparts in name only, these stories are sure to either put you to sleep, get you incredibly confused, or make you laugh out loud at just how far from the actual story Scooter manages to take all of us as we drift into dreamland. Latest episodes of Game of Drones can be found in the main feed of Sleep with Me.

Arya Talking To Me? - A Game of Thrones Podcast
Melbourne comedians (and absolute Throne-heads) Adam Knox and Ben Vernel review every single episode of Game of Thrones in the lead up to the hotly anticipated climactic final season of the show that has become a worldwide phenomenon. Enter the throne-zone.
user avatar

Morgan DeLisle

Though huge fans themselves, Adam and Ben don’t think anything is off limits as they make jokes all the way through Arya Talking to Me. Including a full recap of the episode, their opinions of every single piece of it, and more random and hilarious jokes than you thought were possible in such a seriously murderous show, this is for people who love Game of Thrones but refuse to give it too much reverence. But don’t let the comedian’s Melbourne accents distract you from some very solid character and episode analysis that will move you through the episodes with a lot of smiles. Episodes average one hour in length.

Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" novels, along with our "What You Should Be Watching" episodes. For questions, rants, and praise, follow us on twitter at @boarsgoreswords.

Morgan DeLisle

I feel like these are the two nerdiest friends I could possibly find to listen to a Game of Thrones recap with and I am so glad I did. Ivan and Red walk through each episode with a lot of pop culture references, jokes, and laugh all the way. I actually laughed out loud at a few points of their series finale episode, but that didn’t come at the cost of analysis of both the writers, the actors, and the storyline. The two are also really aware of the social elements and impacts of Game of Thrones on the rest of us mortals, and that’s always fun to listen to. Episodes average around one hour.

Morgan DeLisle

If you want a really in depth look at Game of Thrones including their relation to the books, the ethical issues involved, critics’ thoughts on the show, and varied viewpoints of all of it, History of Westeros is the podcast for you. The episodes are long, detailed, and well thought out, covering the filming, screenwriting, and research on what people are saying about everything that’s going down. This isn’t exactly light hearted, but if you take fiction seriously and want to talk about the intricacies that great stories weave together, Abishai is the host to listen to. Episodes average around two hours in length.

If you love Game of Thrones solely because you love great television, Oysters, Clams & Cockles are right there with you. Ross and Barrett love television and make it clear that they know how to examine it. Structured around hotline call in from fans who really know their Game of Thrones and have detailed questions and criticisms for their favorite hosts to walk through. I love how respectful and appreciative they are of the fans who call in and the fact that they don’t mind disagreeing with those fans and making their case. This is a great analysis of character and story without feeling like it takes itself too seriously. Episodes average around one hour.

Morgan DeLisle

If you want a really in depth discussion of Game of Thrones from some passionate sistahs, this is the show you’ve been looking for. These women are happy to jump into every scene they loved or hated, what they think the writers did right and wrong, and what fan theories they are holding tight to or firmly rejecting. With four hosts, pretty much every point of view is covered in these long form episodes. With plenty of language and lots of knowledge, they go deep into character and story analysis to make sure shade is thrown exactly where it ought to be.
