Boars Gore and Swords Season 2, third best Game of Thrones podcast

I recently spent a couple of days catching up on my absolutely favorite podcast: Boars Gore and Swords. San Francisco based comedians and hosts Ivan Hernandez and Red Scott are back; making getting it wrong so very right.

The dynamic duo started podcasting in Season One; half enamored and half bewildered by HBO's Game of Thrones. Never having read Geore R.R. Martin's A Song of Fire and Ice the two clumsily misinterpret names, places, events, customs and politics of Westeros to raucous hilarity.

Season Two is stronger than ever. With a sparkling new Tumblr blog they are also posting up listener submitted content and corrections (praise to @mhunger for the comprehensive list every week!) Red and Ivan are both more comfortable, casual and just coming off a podcasted book club where they actually read the first epic novel!

  1. I also love this podcast, these guys are hilarious, and even though they get a lot of things wrong, at least they try. I wish the same could be said of every Game Of Thrones podcast out there.

  2. The second season has been great. I’m also looking forward to the ‘Book Club’ part of the podcast as well. Ivan & Red could easily do weekly reviews of shows or books and it would be high entertainment. Keep up the good work! 

  3. Great podcast.  I enjoy it very much.  Looking forward to the book club for book two starting soon.

    1. Can’t tell if you’re being serious or not, but the third best podcast reference is an in-joke from the podcast.  You will hear the boys refer to it often.  I believe it comes from a early listener’s iTunes comment.
