SUMMER SURPRISE! Reckless Recaps, Take Quakes, and World Cup Houses

June 29, 2018

It's June and we're sorely missing some Thrones in our life. And if we're missing Game of Thrones, we can only imagine how much YOU'RE missing THIS podcast! Harry and I sit down to confusedly hash out the previous season, make some speculative guesses as to how the final season will play out, and compare the houses of Westeros to the teams of World Cup 2018. Enjoy! 


Queries and Theories: Three Guys, In Memoriam, and LTT

September 1, 2017

In the final episode of the penultimate season of Bone Up On Your Thrones, your fearless podcast leaders are joined by good friend of the pod Greg Hall, a resident of the greater Atlanta metro area who decided to fly up to Boston on a whim because he had a bunch of miles on his credit card and he effing loves his friends. 

Anyway, Greg, Harry, and I yap about the questions and theories swirling around this latest episode of Game of Thrones, including the identity of the Night('s) King, the possibility of the wine in Cersei's chamber being poisoned, and the CGI budget that may/may not have precluded HBO from showcasing Ghost, arguably the most important character in the series. 

Also, I think we missed a question from Madde. Sorry Mad! 


S3E8 Part 1: Sleuthy Sluts, Friendly Offscreen Dragons, and Blue Fire

August 30, 2017

The Game of Thrones season 7 finale was so big, so beefy, so downright girthy, that we had no choice but to split our recap into two parts. In this episode you'll find Harry and I diving deep into the melee, with discussions on the potential NSFW antics Qyburn was planning with that wight's hand, the hijinks Drogon and Rhaegal could have been stirring up offscreen, and a potential new book-sourced nickname for Viserion. 


Also, a mystery guest shows up at some point. You'll know it when you hear it. 


On Thursday, we'll be coming in hot with a mailbag-type pod, dissecting the many awesome questions we got from listeners across this great nation of ours. If anything in this ep sparks a question, you know where to send it. 


S3E7: Edmund’s Monster Babies, King Butthead’s Javelin, and the Big Chain Salesman

August 25, 2017

Whilst currently on a conference call with some very important people, I nevertheless have persisted and posted this episode. Harry and I plow through a discussion of the penultimate episode of Thrones's penultimate season in much the same way as Gendry plowed through the snows of the North. 

Arya was exhibiting a real 'tude during all of her interactions with Sansa, and we didn't appreciate it. There was some quality dude time north of the wall, we lost Thoros, and many many people made stupid decisions. Overall, the realism of this show focusing on dragons, ice zombies, and resurrection has taken a significant downturn. 


PS: I said Rhaegal was red in the books but he's green. My b.


S3E6: King Grumpy, MiniBoy and BaldyButt, and Accordions in a Blender

August 15, 2017

It's like 1:30 in the morning and I have to get up at 6:30. You're not getting much in the way of a description. Fresh off a heartbreaking L in the soccer finals, Harry and I discuss the Thrones's latest episode. It's cool. Guys go beyond the wall, women talk about pregnancy, dragons snuff dudes then sniff a dude. Jamie shouldn't be alive. Davos wins the episode. Gendry's back!!  


S3E5: Stark Family Reunion, Cavebound Sexplorations, and Soggy Jamie

August 8, 2017

You guys. This episode was massively dope. Drogon was unleashed to the fullest and Dany had that crazy look in her eye where you just knew she was thinking, "Let's get it on." 

Seriously, the fourth ep of Thrones' seventh season delivered from beginning to end, and Harry and I went long and deep on the whole thing. We discuss Bran's penchant for bringing up moments in other people's lives that he would have no earthly reason to know about, hieroglyphics, Arya stuntin' on Brienne, Missandei's somewhat forced proclamation of devotion to Dany, the invention of the wheelchair, Drogon's stint on the DL, and who the true blue mole in Dany's camp is. 

Also, we watched a fucking dragon roast some bitches. Strap in. 

Also also, I went on a map rant. Here's the map in question:

P.S.: I misspoke on the origin of the assassin's dagger. Joffrey stole it from Robert, who won it from Littlefinger. Tyrion's not involved. Carry on.


S3E4: Alessia Cara, Pepto Pistorius, and Charlie Like a Rock Star

August 1, 2017

Back at it again! with the fresh GoT takes. Fresh off a hugeeee soccer dub, Rob and I discuss the girl he made cry that one time, a whole lot of fingers in bums, and we are reminded that dragons DO in fact exist. 

We got a heaping pile of listener questions to sort through - and decided whether or not Jon will bend the knee, who might kill Charlie Conway, and whether or not Arya is going to meet Sansa (spoiler - probably not).

We call some friends for STEAMING hot takes and decide whether or not Bran is the biggest creep to ever exist. Stay until the end for some bonus footage. BUOY-T everybody!!


S3E3: First Encounters, Beautiful Barbarians, and Uncle Charlie’s Bloodbath

July 25, 2017

It's the second episode of the seventh season of Game of Thrones, and boy was it a doozy. Harry and I have hit our stride just in time, and we yammer on about scaly boys, the Lord's Kiss as performed by a Ken doll, huge unwieldy crossbows and magical wind-aided raven flights. 

In addition, there's talk of "KINGINDANORF" drinking games, the fact that Yara cucks Theon on a daily basis, and Jorah's swiftly deteriorating epidermal situation. Enjoy!


S3E2: Dragonstone, Zombie Boogers, and Ed Sheeran

July 19, 2017

Praise the Old Gods and the New, for Game of Thrones has returned! In this episode Harry and I go deep on the Season 7 premiere, including discussions about that sweet new map room Cersei's trotting around in, how many ice zombies you could fuck up with one Valyrian steel sword, and a few lengthy tangents about God knows what. We suspended recording halfway through to go play a soccer game (you'll have to stick around to find out how we did), so the last half is a bit more loopy. Enjoy!


S3E1: There’s Two of Them!

June 22, 2017


In today's episode we meet our fearless new cohost Harry Tyrell. Get it, cuz their sigil is a rose? Anyway, Harry and I have just returned from a life-affirming Third Eye Blind concert, and we're not not drunk. So this one's a little interesting. We jabber on about dragons, zombies, zombie dragons, ice, fire, Jon, Dany, and everything else in the sexual new Season 7 trailer. 

Harry hadn't seen the new trailer, so the beginning part is him reacting to it. It's pretty good stuff. 

Here's the trailer if you want to follow along:
