We read books, then talk about them in chunks - listen to us get to grips with some of your favourite old classics or pick up something new and read along with us!


It's the final wrap cast of a long series on Game of Thrones Season 6. We reflect on what was almost certainly the best opening 20 mins of the entire series and probably the best overall episode of the whole series. Big talk? Of course. But when you've got a body count this big, anything less than big talk just isn't big enough. Or something.

We also respectfully pick through the rubble of all that remains of Matt's Bunker Full of Spoilers. How fleetingly we knew ye..

We'll be breaking for the summer after this but we'll be back in September. GEt in touch at sharkliveroilpodcast@gmail.com or on twitter @sharkliveroil if you've any ideas of books you'd like us to feature on the podcast.

It's our review of Game of Thrones, Season 6 Episode 9, from the perspective of two guys who have read the whole Song of Ice and Fire book series. Ladies and Gentlemen: boys and girls: lords, queens, bastards and wenches: it's time for the battle we've all been waiting for. The Battle. Of. The BASTARDS.
This week, we have not one but two spectacular battle-scenes, epic sexual tension, and a deliciously macabre fan-theory. As ever, let us know your thoughts, theories, opinions and/or unmissable investment opportunities: sharkliveroilpodcast@gmail.com or @sharkliveroil.

We recap the madcap chase through Braavos, the epic Mountain-Smash, the surrender of Riverrun, the Hound's Re-Education through violence and much much more!

It's our review of episode 7 of season 6 of Game of Thrones - featuring miraculous resurrections, and not at all surprising massacres, and possibly the truest description of Game of Thrones yet (coming, surprisingly enough, from a crime-solving antiques dealer with a twinkle in his eye). With an extra bonus: the continued shelling of Matt's Bunker Full of Spoilers, and the real possibility that Dave is one failed plot-twist away from going full-on Hulk Smash.

We shout a hearty "welcome back!" to some long lost characters in this episode with Benjen Stark, Edmure Tully and Walder Frey all making a return. We also discuss Arya's sudden attack of conscience and Mace Tyrell's horsemanship (which is even worse than his speech delivery). Cool Benjen and Who Aaaaariou are the topics of conversation in Matts Bunker Full Of Spoilers at the end of the show, and we also read out some of your feedback including a Gator Update and an offer to spend 7 million US dollars opening a new orphanage.

Featuring our special, long-awaited foray into Matt's Bunker Full of Spoilers, including your favourites so far and a theory rejoicing in the name of Horny Tywin, and, finally, the Dom Perignon of Questionable Fan Theories: Varys Is A Mermaid. Can Matt make a believer out of Dave? Probably not.

As ever, get in your theories, ideas, outrage, incredulity and excitement in to sharkliveroilpodcast@gmail.com or @sharkliveroil on Twitter.
