'Game of Thrones': EW launches season 6 podcast

Season preview episode available now

Posted on


Because of course we are! EW is ramping up its already mammoth coverage of Game of Thrones season 6 by launching an essential (well, we think so anyway) podcast. The chat show (titled, quite simply EW’s Game of Thrones Weekly) is hosted by Westeros war correspondent (and GoT recapper) James Hibberd and Entertainment Geekly columnist and pop-culture expert Darren Franich. There will be a new episode posted every Monday during season 6 where we give our analysis of the latest twists, behind-the-scenes insight from being on set, and take your questions.

But there’s also a season premiere preview now available on iTunes. Titled “You Know Nothing About Season 6,” James gives (spoiler-free) thoughts on watching the Thrones premiere screening in Hollywood while Darren makes some bold predictions for the season, and together we ponder the fate of Jon Snow, the involvement of George R.R. Martin, and discuss how Arya’s story is like Batman Begins.

Subscribe and listen right now here. And feel free to send questions and comments on Twitter to @JamesHibberd and @DarrenFranich, or send an email to GOTpodcast@ew.com. Preview:
