So long, ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 5. It’s been… alright: The Rains of Podcastamere

PodcastamereWe’ve seen how Season 5 plays out, and it’s… acceptable, mostly! We have LOTS of thoughts on the Season 5 finale of “Game of Thrones,” so for this very special Goodbye Episode, I’ll just leave you with the audio.

Thanks for tuning in for “The Rains of Podcastamere!” We hope to see you back again next season.

Saying a few goodbyes on ‘Game of Thrones’ this week: Rains of Podcastamere

PodcastamereRemember that time we were like, “Oh, Stannis is such a nice man and such a great dad! Who knew?” Well, you know who knew? Not anyone else, because he’s a dream crusher. A crusher of sweet, wise, adorable dreams.

I didn’t get to complain as much as I wanted to this week, as I was far off at my house trying to swat away my cats. You all know how much I love complaining, so resisting the urge to interrupt at every turn was hard for me.

The episode was certainly a lesson in the importance of character consistency. And the pointlessness of Dorne. And the awesomeness of dragons.

Then, we have a chat about parenting as a theme in “Game of Thrones,” which seems apropos this week.

After a moment of silence for our dear, sweet Shireen, take a listen.

Our theme music was arranged by Will Leinninger of Enola and performed by Leinninger and Vegas Grimwood, also of Enola. “Main Title” was originally composed by Ramin Djawadi for HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” Listen to Leinninger’s band 3033 on Facebook and Reverb Nation.

Join us next Tuesday afternoon for the penultimate episode of “The Rains of Podcastamere,” in which we’ll review the ultimate episode of “Game of Thrones” Season 5. In the final “Rains of Podcastamere” episode the following week, we’ll look back at Season 5 and try to tie up any loose ends they’ve left for us. Join us, I say!

Tyrion & Dany are a dream realized on ‘Game of Thrones’ (+ white walkers & more!): Rains of Podcastamere

HEY,Podcastamere EVERYONE! Sorry for the shoutycaps, I am just very excited to talk about this week’s “Game of Thrones” episode with you all. Wildlings, white walkers and oysters, oh my! It was such a great episode that I don’t want to waste your time reading this intro when you could just be listening to us talk about the awesomeness.

In our topic of the day, we give a shout out to JRR Tolkien and talk about the many ways “Lord of the Rings” gives influence to “Game of Thrones” – and where GRRM departs from the fantasy tropes JRRT established.

Listen away!
