    Boars, Gore, and Swords is hosted by stand-up comedians Ivan Hernandez and Red Scott. In each episode they break down HBO's Game of Thrones and George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire. They also talk about movies, TV, science fiction, fantasy, and lots of other things. NSFW.

With our third King since the series started, we get our first coronation in King’s Landing with Tommen Lannist… Baratheon, Cersei arranges a second son’s marriage to the same woman, Daenerys realizes in all the conquering she’s forgotten to rule, HUGE realizations as Littlefinger and Sansa arrive at the Eeyrie, the ponzi scheme of Casterly rock, comical horse riding, Jojen has a vision, a boy and his wolf reunite, and Craester’s wives take a stand.

    1. There are a bunch of podcasts that have read the books, we thought it would be more interesting to have a podcast from the perspective of people who see the show before they read the books, which is the lens through which the majority of viewers watch the show. Many people who've read the book listen to us essentially to feel superior. Also, you don't have to worry about spoilers which is always an issue with podcasts hosted by people who've read the book.

      After a given season is over, we read the books that relate to the previous season. Maybe that's a type of Hipster Twaddle that's more your speed. Thanks for listening!
