Episode 14 – Just Google Mike Pence

It’s been almost three weeks but we’re back! We talked about the delay to the upcoming Game of Thrones season and the handful of Emmy nominations the show received. We then dive into world events, like the failed coup in Turkey, before turning our attention to the state of the U.S. presidential election. We close with a discussion on the Pokemon Go! phenomenon and the recent sale of the UFC for $ billion. Thanks for being patience with us as we took some time off for the 4th of July and life, but we’ll be back on a regular schedule soon! Thanks as always for listening!

Episode 13 – The Winds of Winter

In this episode, we wrap up the Game of Thrones season with our discussion of “The Winds of Winter.” Cersei pretty much eliminates all her King’s Landing threats in grand fashion, Jon is anointed KINGINDANORF by Young Lady Lyanna Mormont, and Daenerys finally sets sail with the largest fleet and army in the known world (though the Night’s King might have something to say about that). We briefly touch on some of our thoughts where the story will go in the future, but we try to keep the discussion on Episode 10. Feel free to share your thoughts with us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/bicoastalpodcast. Thanks for listening this during the season and stay tuned for what comes next for Bicoastal Podcast.

Episode 12 – Battle of the Bastards

In this episode, we take an in-depth look at “Battle of the Bastards,” the penultimate episode of Season 6 of Game of Thrones. Topics discussed include Sansa’s treatment of Jon regarding her hidden Army, what Dany and all her boats mean for the Mereneese knot, and the demise of the Lord of Winterfell. We spend that last bit of the episode discussing many of the possibilities for Episode 10 – “The Winds of Winter” – and where everyone might end up at the end of the season. Thanks for listening to our latest episode.

Episode 11 – Love For Orlando

With 49 dead, and 53 wounded, the mass shooting at Pulse night club in Orlando in the early morning of June 12th is the deadliest mass shooting in American history. In this special episode, Al and I have a discussion about the tragic events in Orlando over the weekend and discuss what sensible gun control would look like in this country. There are a lot of things we agree on, but this wasn’t about politics; it was about two friends talking through their feelings about the past weekend. Please share your thoughts if you’d like, but more importantly, be kind to one another.

Episode 10 – No One

In this episode, Al and I discuss “No One,” the most recent episode of Game of Thrones. We try to figure out what exactly happened in Braavos, what Cersei’s next move might be, and new developments in Mereen. Then, with no idea what next week will be about because of a lack of synopsis from HBO, we try to figure out what all the various images from the trailer mean for “Battle of the Bastards.” As always, thanks for listening and let us know what you think!

Episode 9 – The Broken Man

In this episode, we talk about “The Broken Man,” Episode 7 and the reappearance of a couple of favorite characters. We have Sandor Clegane, in his first appearance since the end of Season 4, in the Riverlands with the smallfolk building a church with Brother Ray (played expertly by Ian McShane). Brynden “The Blackfish” Tully makes his first appearance on screen since the Red Wedding and parlays with Jaime Lannister, who arrives in the Riverlands with his right hand man Bronn, who himself was back for the first time since the end of last season. We also talked about Sansa’s mystery letter and the attempted murder of Arya Stark in Braavos. Then, in previewing Episode 8 – entitled “No One” – we discussed how Arya leaves Braavos behind and how the Riverlands plotlines might resolve themselves.

Thanks as always for listening!

Episode 8 – Blood of My Blood

In this episode, we discuss the recent developments from Episode 6 – “Blood of My Blood” – and what it all means for the major players involved. We talk about how it is nice to see some long gone characters return to the fray, as well as an introduction of a new character that lives up to the hype. Then, as we preview Episode 7 – “The Broken Man” – we cover a lot of ground on what is happening in the Riverlands with the much anticipated return of another long-lost character, as well as how things might play out for Sansa, Jon Snow, and Davos in the North. Sorry in advance for any audio quality issues; it may just be time to upgrade some of the technology.

Thanks as always for listening.

Episode 7 – Summer Movie Preview

In this special bonus episode, we take a break from recapping Game of Thrones to chat about some of the summer movies that we’re excited for, including Suicide Squad, The Legend of Tarzan, and Jason Bourne. We also present two movies that might be a little off the radar – Me Before You and Yoga Hosers. Feel free to let us know what movies you’re excited for this summer in the comments below!

As always… thanks for listening!
