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!


Did you hate it? Did you love it? Whatever you thought, it’s the END OF THE SONG OF ICE AND FIRE, and we’re sprinting through the finish line with a degree of spriteliness that is WHOLLY INAPPROPRIATE to the ending of the story. But what can you do? Shark’s gonna Shark. This final episode of our coverage features the great unanswerable questions: is war ever justified? Are dragons all secretly anti-monarchy? And above all, what was wrong with the Dothraki B-Team’s satnav?

We may as well nail our colours to the mast straight away with this one.. we liked it. Sure, there were a few issues with how we got to this point, which meant one or two of the character moments may have not quite been what they could have been, but take a step back and leave your predictions at the door and this is one pretty awesome episode of television. We explain why we liked it while re-living some of the most controversial moments of the series. We also round the cast off with your feedback and our new fan theory for how Bronze Yohn Royce is now destined for the Iron Throne.

We’re watching the last season of Game of Thrones so we can get some narrative closure on the series, and it’s all controversy, all the time this week. We’re going through Episode 4 of Game of Thrones’ eighth season, which is called The Last of The Starks, which does not contain anything you might be expecting: INCLUDING the setup for the comedy spinoffs we’re all begging for: Tormund and Brienne star in ‘Till Death Us Do Part’ with knives, AND/OR Tormund and Ghost star in Turner and Hooch: Beyond the Wall! Missed opportunities all.
As ever, get in touch through sharkliveroilpodcast@gmail.com, facebook.com/sharkliveroil, or @sharkliveroil on Twitter, with your theories, irritations, furies and character crushes, and we’ll be reading them out next time!

We’re getting our Song of Ice and Fire fix from the TV, and this week, it’s episode 2 of the final series of Game of Thrones: A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms. It’s a tense one, and perhaps the most unsettling thing is that an awful lot of characters have suspiciously complete character arcs. Grey Worm is even talking about how he’s one last job from retirement. It’s all set-up, and it’s all rich stuff - let us know what you thought of it @sharkliveroil on Twitter and sharkliveroilpodcast@gmail.com. And remember: when you play the Game of Thrones, you win, or you get eaten by the malevolently resurrected wight of your former loved ones. See you next week!

We're covering the final season of Game of Thrones. Yes, this is supposed to be a books podcast but we're sick of waiting for George to finish his writing so we're turning to television for closure. We'll bring you a week by week recap of every episode. But wait! There's more! This week we have a special bonus section at the end where we predict what's going to happen to each character. We'll keep track of their progress every week. Spoiler free - although we have read the books so we do go into a bit of extra background.

If you have your own predictions for your favourite characters or thoughts on the episode that you'd like to share, send your feedback to sharkliveroilpodcast@gmail.com and find us on twitter @sharkliveroil
