Glen (Dagos_Rivers) is joined by the (missed) KrakenCast leader, Duncan (Valkyrist), and a new host (although I later realised he had been in VoK 151), Mattias (Maca). The rest of the regular WolfCast return from the first review: Matthieu (Beric175), Claire (DarkSister24) and David (ChurchofStarryWisdom).

Discussion includes Daenerys’ walking through fire, Terminator style; the Wall book-ending the show; we continue to ponder what became of Gendry; Matthieu gets a grilling for being late for a podcast; and future podcasts on that show.

Law offices of James M. McGill, how may we direct your call? Join Duncan (Valkyrist), Zach (Alias) and Adam (drownedsnow) for a trip down New Mexico way. They review the first season of AMC’s new series Better Call Saul, dissecting its themes of identity, morality, family, justice, and Chicago sunroofs.
