On this special edition of The HO Podcast, we are going to talk about all things ‘Game of Thrones’. Not in place of our regular show, this is just a special bonus for fans of GoT. As Season 2 nears its debut, we discuss what is ‘Game of Thrones’, who are all these oddly named folk, what the hell is actually going on, where we left off inSeason 1 and most importantly - where does it go from here? We also discuss in detail some major Season 1 spoilers, including a spirited debate between Aaron and Justin on who really understands the character of Ned the most. If you have not seen Season 1 yet, download this and wait until you have to listen to it. If you have seen it, listen and let us know what you love or don’t love about the show, as well as how wrong the guys are, at feedback@thehollywoodoutsider.com . A fun time discussing a great show.
