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.
