Game of Thrones (A Game of Too Many Characters)
With Matt out sick, Bran and Jon are joined by guests Erica and Michael (Curry) and forced to discuss Game of Thrones without being trolled once. Did they remember to introduce the guests?

Listen in as they mourn the quality of the show's final seasons, realize that dragons aren't actually real, and pick almost none of the fan favorites to be the "best" character.
