As Game of Thrones show runners breathe fire into their first spin-off in House of the Dragon, we’re here to discuss all of the comings and goings in the realm during this first season. On this special episode, we take the major happenings over the 20 year period from the show, and discuss what we loved or loathed about our favorite heroes and villains in the Seven Kingdoms.

Unlike many podcasts, we will not be breaking things down chronologically. Instead, we take on each primary character and the main plot points as the war for the Iron Throne reigns on.

Targaryens, Valeryons, and Hightowers - oh my! The gang is all here, and we’re ready to tackle this season in the most cutthroat way possible. Take a listen to our House of the Dragon Reactions Podcast!

On this episode of The Hollywood Outsider, it's time to smell what The Rock is cooking up in the DCEU as Black Adam finally hit theaters, and critics and audiences are split down the middle on The Rock's interpretation of the fabled DC Universe villain. We discuss every aspect of the film, including that magnificent cameo. 

Also, Zack Parkerson of The Gaming Outsider stops by to discuss The Flash trailer, as he was part of a focus group on the trailer and has enormous insight into what we might see in DC's next franchise wannabe starter starring Ezra Miller.
