  • Hey, I have moved the Game of Thrones podcast (A Pod of Casts) to Libsyn (the dedicated podcast hosting service). This means that most of the links at thetvcritic. org to those podcasts won't work. Your Itunes subscription should work fine and if you prefer to download the files individually go here: http://apodofcasts. libsyn. com/. If you need to know the RSS feed address it's http://apodofcasts. libsyn. com/rss. If you want episode one of Season 5 right now then download from here: http://traffic. libsyn. com/apodofcasts/A_Pod_of_Casts_501_The_Wars_to_Come. mp3 If you are wondering why I don't get those links fixed then go back to the "Sort of Goodbye" Blog post.

  • *I may be gone for now but check out these podcasts:* The Angel Rewatch (with Derek and William)[https://theangelrewatch. wordpress. com/] Return to Stars Hollow: A Gilmore Girls Rewatch (with Cordia and Celeste)[http://returntostarshollow. blogspot. co. uk/] Trailerclash: The Movie Trailers Podcast (with Roberto and friends)[http://trailerclash. wordpress. com/] Hi everyone, As you can probably imagine producing podcasts takes a lot of time. An hour to watch the show, sometimes an hour to write, an hour to read and edit feedback, an hour to record, an hour to edit and post and prepare for the next one. Between "The Walking Dead" podcast and the Buffy Rewatch my spare time is well used up.

    Last time I posted here, I was praising the series, especially how they handled diverting from the books. But after few episodes, I'm not high on praises as much. I didn't like that they killed off...
