Winter is coming

looking for a good podcast? then check out they’ve got some great tv podcasts that are well thought out and dense in information and insight. by far my favorites is the Game of Thrones podcast and they deliver the goods with plenty of content that is broken out into three podcasts a week; an instant take on the week’s episode, a second summary and exploration of the current episode and a third that focuses on the similarities and differences between the show and the books. anyway, was listening tonight while doodling on this bad boy. good way to spend a late wednesday night.
