Quit Yer Pitchin’ – Episode 12

This is a podcast where Jim and I, using tools created for the purpose, randomly generate a title for a fictional TV show. We then pitch ideas to each other based on what that show would be like if it were real. We like to call it, “Quit Yer Pitchin’!”

Game of Thrones – 201 – The North Remembers

And now our (re)watch begins with “The North Remembers”, the season two premiere of HBO’s Game of Thrones series.  We’ll be working our way through the entire second season, the first half of the episode is entirely spoiler free for first time viewers, then we’ll have a mini-SpoiLore section after we play the end of pod theme music for people who are caught up on the books / show.  In this episode we’re appreciating Tyrion’s swagger, Sansa’s strength, Robb’s toughness, and Jon’s girlish good looks. We’ll have more every Tuesday over the next ten weeks, so settle in for a long trip down GoT memory lane!  See you next week!

Game of Thrones – Season 7 Wrapup – SpoiLore Edition

Jim and A.Ron consider some book-based speculation and theories from the latest episode of Game of Thrones!  If you’re a show-only watcher who doesn’t want any spoilers, it’s best to just skip this one.  Need to catch up?  Here’s a Tinfoil SpoiLore archive of previous podcasts by topic. Each link has a time code listed so you can jump right to the tinfoil topic of the week for your convenience and listening pleasure.

American Horror Story Podcast – American Horror Story – 701 – Election Night

Whoo boy, are we in for a season of FX’s American Horror Story, subtitled “Cult”.  For A.Ron, it’s a little long on clowns and a little light on Cult, and Cecily wonders who or what is the focus of the social skewering going on in “Election Night”, the season premiere.  It’s too early to tell a lot of things, like how seriously Murphy is taking all of this, if every clown or even any clown we see is real, and exactly how much screaming Evan Peters will be doing this year, but hey, we’re all here for the ride.  See you next week!

Game of Thrones – Game of Thrones – Season 7 SpoiLore Wrap Up BONUS Episode!

LWJ&A – 9/1/2017

In this week’s Lunch, we talk A.Ron’s birthday, Jim’s video game collection Find O’ the Century, favorite apples, investment strategies, our feelings about pumpkin spice, and much more!  Grab a beer, grab some grub, LET’S DO THIS!!

Game of Thrones – 707 – The Dragon and the Wolf

Jim and A.Ron develop their thoughts on the season finale of HBO’s Game of Thrones, “The Lion and the Wolf”.  Many were pleased, yet there are some lingering resentments.  We try to talk through why we thought Cersei’s scheming, Sansa and Arya’s collaboration, and the Night King’s ultimate plan to cross the wall made a lot of sense both from a plot and character standpoint, but we definitely leave room for people who have trouble looking past how we arrived there.  In the end, we both agree that the series is set for a thrilling and satisfying conclusion, and the DD’s have nearly twice the time to develop it.  Will they succeed?  Can Martin eventually do better? Join us next week as we wrap up our Season 7 coverage and try to answer these questions and more.  And don’t forget Friday, as we delve into the deeper meanings and book implications for the events of this season!  See you then.
