Episode 37 FireandLunch PieCast S5E9: The Dance of Dragons


Welcome the PieCast! Join Jenny, Rachel and Katie as we discuss the penultimate, much-anticipated episode 9 of Game of Thrones Season 5, The Dance of Dragons. 

We begin, middle and end the episode with a tribute to and lament for poor little Shireen Baratheon. In between sobs, we discuss the endlessly boring storyline in Dorne, Arya's moves along the Braavosi chess board, and one of the best/worst escapes we've seen on TV this year. (For one. Sorry, entire court of Dany Targaryen. You should be fine. Probably.) 
As always, here there be spoilers. Only until next week, though. Then we're all on our own! 
#PieCast: Episode 37: S5E9 The Dance of Dragons. Featuring Jenny, Rachel and Katie. Running Time: 1 hour and 20 minutes.

Episode 36 FireandLunch PieCast S5E8: Hardhome


Karsi, we hardly knew ye. 
Welcome to the all-Brigade episode of the PieCast! Join Jess, Megan and Katie (with Jenny assisting in spirit) as we discuss the frighteningly awesome episode that was Hardhome. Our thirst for Jon Snow is about as real as Cersei's in the Black Cells, AMIRITE? ;D
...Too soon? Okay.
With ratings that swing as high as we've ever had them on the podcast, we talk about the value of Tyrion in the Meereen storyline, how shitty an ex Jorah is, the growth of the story's mythology in Hardhome's final battle (Valyrian steel kills the Others! The White Walkers have an organizational structure and goals!), and the overall encompassing awesomeness that is Wun Wun. 
Clocking in at 93 minutes, buckle in for a wildly enthusiastic slice of Pie. 
As always, here be spoilers. Listener beware!

We review Dany and Tyrion's meet cute, the soundness of Jon Snow's political choices, and the absolute thrill of Cersei's well-earned "oh shit" face. We may or may not rage at the Dorne and Winterfell storylines. (Who are we kidding, of course we do.)

Basically, everyone is a secret Targaryen (maybe even us) and none of it matters because it will all end horribly when the snows fall a hundred feet deep and the ice wind comes howling out of the north […] and the white walkers move through the woods…

Oh my sweet summer child, here there be spoilers.
