Hey all. So I'm sure you've noticed the slowing pace of episode release. Part of it has been that we are all busy right now in our personal and work lives, so it is hard to record regularly. And even when we do, the editing takes 2-3 times longer than the recording, which again slows down the episode release speed.

Nevertheless, we do plan to continue recording episodes. To help with releases, it could be useful to have a few people on a trusted list we can ask to edit raw episode files for us. So if you are interested and good with using audacity (or an equivalent recorder) let us know.

So the tentative plan for the next set of episodes (until season 2 of the HBO show comes out) is to review A Dance with Dragons, but POV by POV, rather than chapter by chapter. That way we can do a deeper review of the book, but not at the snails pace of a chapter reread. The other option would to be go back to our Clash of Kings reread, moving through that, which could be good as we'll have A Dance with Dragons knowledge that may affect our reread analysis. We could also chat about how we think things from Clash of Kings will show up in the TV show.

Anyway, we are interested in your views so please vote and post about which option you prefer. One advantage of the Clash of Kings option is that we can just read a chapter or two per episode, making it more likely to get episodes out faster (in theory). For Dance with Dragons reviews (in theory) we would have to reread more chapters and that might delay things given our current busy status. But that assumes that we will actually reread all the relevant chapters per POV rather than skimming them and Tower of the Hand...

I say continue with aCoK chapter rereads, so you guys arnt skipping around from this book to that book. There will be plenty of time to get to aDwD. Also for reasons Amin posted, sounds like a good plan to me.

About the editing. I would like to help out any way that I can, and lately Ive had plenty of free time. I've never edited anything before and dont know anything about audacity, but I'm pretty sure I can pick it up easily enough. I just downloaded audacity. And I will tinker and practice with it a bit
Also, I do not always have access to a high speed internet connection, but thats yet to be a problem for me. Like I said, I am definitely willing to help. And I like to think that I am trustworthy.

Even if I'll miss the chapter rereads I really like the POV idea. If not we'll get to the aDwD rereads in about 35 years...

Having said that... I'm mainly here for the laughs so you guys can talk about pretty mutch anything you want :D

I'm for the aCoK idea. Simply because I like the format. And knowing you guys a little bit: You will have plenty of possibilities to run off the track in the direction of aDwD ;)

And it fits with the upcoming season...

Since they're filming the north-of-the-wall scenes for season 2 in Iceland, could you find time in an episode to discuss The Icelandic Phallological Museum?

Yay! I'm happy that you guys are back. I wouldn't be terribly upset whatever you guys decide, but I think I would prefer (like everyone else so far) to continue with ACOK in preparation for Season 2. I have a feeling that we are in no rush and you guys can probably finish the series before the next book comes out. Happy to be see familiar "faces" on the forum again :)

Continue with ACOK readings.

Also, more innuendo, here-say, and shocking lack of knowledge. :|

I don't have a strong opinion, but if I was to choose I'd say go over Dance before returning to the Clash re-read. It's new and shiny, so I'd rather hear about it first. Neither one is really time sensitive though, so I guess anything is fine.

I'd love more Clash re-reads, since season 2 is coming up and it'd be cool to refresh my memory and listen to some debates on things that'll be coming to television in the near future (plus my feelings about Dance are still "meh" lol)

An excellent point. Hadn't thought of refreshing my memory for the TV show. I will probably be rereading the whole series about that time anyway, so it would be good to hear about it on the podcast. But I am fine with what is decided on, either way.

Haven't listened to 65, looking forward to it.

I like both, leaning towards ADWD atm.

Also, Woo! Podcast!

I vote for aDwD, just because I'm doing a re-read of it at the moment and would love the additional insight/conversation.

I would love to help out with editing. I have experience editing some self-syndicated podcasts actually, I use SoX/Linux, but I'm familiar with many tools (software guy by trade).

This. Both are fine by me. Whichever one you end up with, the other will come up I'm sure :p
APOIAF has the loveliest habit of going off the track into beautiful and wild territories... sometimes these territories even include pokemon.

Continuing Acok rereads would be awesome.
Personally i think you guys should do some 5-10 mins AsoiaF news report again, to flesh out your conversations a bit more with the hbo show.

Thank you everyone for the feedback so far, including a few people who emailed to help with editing.

Just to note that we are quite busy the next few weeks so a new recording is unlikely. But I plan to record an episode later in the month and then get back into a regular recording schedule starting in January.

I voted for ADWD POV's, just because if you guys do find time to get out regular podcasts, I think it will take too long to get through the chapter rereads before the 2nd season comes out, and it will get pushed to the back burner again.

Trying to figure out how many POV's are actually in ADWD? If the podcast can get out on a regular basis, even just somewhat, you guys might be able to get through all of the different POV's by the time the 2nd season of the HBO series starts.

Asha Greyjoy
Quentyn Martell
Theon Greyjoy
Barristan Selmy
Victarion Greyjoy

With the aDwD excitement mostly sedated by now, I'd love to get back on aCoK and ride it for a while.

We nearly have Christmas and the holidays are not so far away and 2012 is coming soon - will we get new episodes at all before Season 2?
