Zero Context: Game of Thrones Podcast – Introductory Episode


Today, I’m super excited to announce the launch of a House of Geekery podcast, Zero Context: Game of Thrones, a podcast where a Game of Thrones expert and a newbie come together to watch the final season of Game of Thrones and talk about their thoughts, feelings and concerns as the season progresses.

First up, we have a spoiler-free Introductory Episode for you all to listen to, in which our expert, One Take Jake talks about the long wait fans have endured, I explain why I don’t watch Game of Thrones (until now), we do a Contextometer test to find out how much context I already have before we start watching, and we both do a quiz to find out which Game of Thrones House we belong to. I somehow got White Walkers as my House, which I hear is very troublesome news.

In the next episode, we’ll be watching and discussing the first episode of season 8, and you’ll get to hear us talk in-depth about the episode, as well as hear about spoilers I encountered before watching the episode (because I am not a spoiler avoider), and Jake’s predictions for the season.

If listening through the House of Geekery blog isn’t your jam, we’ll be on iTunes and Soundcloud. But if you have a preferred podcast listening service that you’d like us to use, jump into the comments and let us know and we’ll see what we can do.

If you want to chat to myself and Jake, you can do so on Twitter at Zero Context Podcast ( @zero_context ) or jump into the comments section here and let us know what you think.

But for now, Valar Morghulis!
