BGaS-logo

This Sunday marks the return of Game of Thrones to HBO for its sixth season, and the return of recap podcast Boars, Gore, and Swords to the Boing Boing Podcast Network.

For the uninitiated, BGaS is a television and film podcast primarily about Game of Thrones, hosted by comedians Red Scott and Ivan Hernandez. Since 2011, the show has recapped and reviewed every episode of Game of Thrones, and covered much of George RR Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire extended universe. With a casual, occasionally filthy tongue in cheek, Ivan and Red cover the show, books, video games, and more, along with other TV shows and films like Doctor Who, Jessica Jones, The Force Awakens, and more.

To get listeners up to speed for the premiere, this week Ivan and Red reviewed the current status of the Top 100 GoT characters. From that one guy who got stabbed to that other guy who got stabbed, they go over everyone of note in the world of Westeros.

If you're new to the show, you can check out their full podcast archive. Some episodes of note include a discussion on the role of women, the first of the live game shows, and their redo of the GoT pilot.

If you want to connect with the guys on social media, you can follow them on Twitter @boarsgoreswords, like their Facebook fanpage, and email them. They also just launched a Patreon, so if you enjoy the show you can kick a few bucks their way. Read the rest
