    I swear that Sandor’s friend shows up latter in the episode wearing Kingsguard armor and giving Cersei an update on the battle. I think he is Osmund Kettleblack.

    Don’t rip the name Griffin! It is a solid Irish name. The heir to my House (my godson) is named Griffin, though we just call him Fin.

    Anyway great show all!

    Nice to have Mimi, First of Her Name Queen of the Neckbeards and the Mongoballers, Lady of House Manwoody and Protector of the Podcast back (again). Girl makes more comebacks than Beric Dondarrion!

    Mandon Moore is the one that gives Cersei the update.

    seriously……..a whole apoiaf “lets draw” series without at least one contribution of onesies from the “Queen of the Podcasters” would be borderline illegitamate…….

    Mimi. I love you. But if you dont watch the rest of season 2 i may soon stop supporting your claim to be Queen! Podcasting about Ice and Fire at this point without being caught up on the show would be like writing a professional and published essay on Ice and Fire without having read the last book … uh, wait…

    Dear wonderful hosts of APOIAF,

    I would totally contribute to a fund-raising thing to get all hosts to meet up, even though I’m oceans away and likely won’t make it to any Manwoody conventions ever…

    You guys should set up a kickstarter and post it on the forum!!!

    Yeah, this podcast totally bullies all their guests sexually. That’s why we listen :)

    Kyle, whats happened? You seem so smart lately :P

    In the RBTW episodes you are like “I cant help thinking blablabla…” Guest host are like “Wish I had thought of that :|

    But all kidding aside, great episode!

    Nice with a old school reread. But unless you mabe up the ante to two chapters one of you may end up getting hit by a car before you can finish it… Its a solid 255 chapters left to the end of aDwD. Probably 150 more to the end of the series (unless GRRM gets hit by a car first…)

    It’s a race. The podcast finishing its reread or the series’ completion.

    What’s with Mimi preemptively hating on season 2? At least watch the damn thing before you rant about how it has soiled the sacred canon. There is much cringing to be had, true, but there are also undeniably great moments.

    Anyway, you guys are awesome as always.

    Jon with no H is not f*cking Jonathan! ;) I was born in 1974 without a H!

    Jon

    My 7 year old son’s name is Sam. My wife said I could name him Samwise or Samwell as long as we could call him Sam. I could not do that to anyone so his name is Samuel Jon without an H!

    Yeah they do weird things in Canada.

    I meant Jon with no H always means Jonathan in Canada according to Ashley.

    Canada will always be the US’s awkward neighbour! They send their chcheques to the centre with lots of colour.

    Hello there,

    I am listening to the previous episodes when I have time. I’ve listened to first 12 episodes so far but I cannot see the rest, between 13 and 68 to be precise, on my itunes.

    Does anyone have any ideas about how I can see them and download them on my itunes?

    P.S: Love the podcast. :-)

    Thanks

    Good episode, nice to get back to the re-reads!

    Also, when Kyle said “Tywin just wanted to go play cyvasse with some whores,” I totally LOL’d.

    I like the podcast, except for Mimi feeling the need to swear nearly every time she talks. I mostly heard was blah blah blah f**k blah blah blah f**k.

    It’s funny hearing Mimi be so passionate about APOIAF branding given how (relatively) late she came into the book series.
