Ruminations Episode IV: Endgame of Thrones

For the fourth episode of the Ruminations Podcast, we discuss the long-awaited endings of our beloved Game of Thrones and The Avengers. (“April is the cruelest month,” as Eliot said.) We recorded hours before the premiere of GoT’s 8th season, but we spend more time talking about the past 7 seasons anyway, so it’s not outdated yet! (One of Chris’s predictions has already come true! Psst. It involves dragons.) For both our GoT and MCU discussions, SPOILERS GALORE!

With 7+ seasons of Game of Thrones and 21 Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, there is too much content we could feature here, so no Show Notes this episode. Sorry! (Plus, if you’ve made it this far, you’ve probably seen them all already!)

In lieu of show notes, however, I will include the crudely photoshopped image of Chris as Loki from the summer of 2012 that we mentioned in the episode:

Crude Avengers Photoshop 2012

It just fits so well.

Also, here is the full version of the featured image. (What can I say but “I’m trying”?)


One final note: We have a new (temporary) format for our audio output, as we ran out of space on our free SoundCloud account. All four of our episodes should be officially listed on iTunes soon.
