Rebranding!

We are moving on! Our Game of Thrones Watch has ended, but the podcast continues, now under the name “Before the Dragon” (b4thedragonpod). Beginning mid July of 2019 we dive further into ASOIAF by George RR Martin, begining with Fire and Blood (part 1 of the history of the Targaryens). As we move forward we hope to explore the Word of Ice and Fire and the upcoming spinoff/prequel series, currently titled “Bloodmoon”. Stay with us and stay tuned!!!
