Take the Black Podcast: And now our re-watch begins…with “Hardhome”


Welcome back to another episode of Take the Black Podcast with House Razor, the shameful family secret of Take the Black Live with House Selcke. This week, the Lady Isis couldn’t join us, so clearly the episode is barely palatable. Still, we soldiered on to briefly discuss some season 8 filming news before getting into the meat of the cast: a thorough look back at the Game of Thrones episode you chose last week: “Hardhome.”
