Welcome back to another episode of Take the Black Podcast with House Razor, the unemptied ashtray in Take the Black Live with House Selcke’s smoke-free hotel room. This week, we recap the highlights of Con of Thrones 2018, which was attended by our own Corey Smith, and then settle in for a lengthy review of Game of Thrones Episode 309, “The Rains of Castamere,” the episode you chose in our most recent rewatch poll.

Don’t forget: the Take the Black Podcast is now on iTunes, and Google Play! Please subscribe and download from there if you can. Also, you can help us out by giving us a five-star rating and leaving a friendly comment! We’re also now on Spreaker, so try us there, as well.

Topics include:

  • Corey Smith regales us with stories of his thrilling adventure to Con of Thrones 2018 in Dallas, Texas. Which panels were his favorite, and who did he meet?
  • Isis gushes over Emilia Clarke’s growth as an actress from season 3 to now.
  • In our “Rains of Castamere” discussion, we talk about the significance of the Red Wedding in putting Game of Thrones on the map.
  • I remind everyone how the show missed the perfect opportunity to introduce Lady Stoneheart. You’re welcome.

As usual, Take the Black leans heavily on the NSFW side (beware of F-bombs). Please listen responsibly.
