SRM Extra: Gettin’ Close With The Mountain!

MountainHafthór Júlíus Björnsson, AKA “The Mountain” from Game of Thrones, is in Philly for the weekend. He’s going to be appearing at the Philly Ren Faire May 16th and 17th. You’ll have the chance to meet him, get your picture taken and if you planned ahead you’ll get to train and fight with him! He was awesome enough to give me some time to chat about the Ren Faire, Game of Thrones and being one of the world’s strongest humans. He also gave me one of my favorite things ever- an SRM tag that you’ll now probably hear at the start of every episode.

The song you hear at the top is an original composition by Fred Brown and Drew Evans specifically for SRM. So a big shout out and thanks to those guys! Also, check out lastnamepoems.tumblr.com. Fred writes poems using only the last names from a particular group/team of people. It’s neat. Check it out.

Lastly- the May Twitter contest is still happening! If you’re a new follower during the month of May you can win an awesome (presently unnamed) Game of Thrones related prize! So follow us @SRMPodcast. Also email us SRMPodcast@gmail.com with any questions, discussion topics, etc. And now, enjoy as I get close with The Mountain!

SRM Season 5 Episode 4: Shades of Greyscale

srm 5This episode of SRM covers Season 5 Episode 4 of Game of Thrones titled “The Sons of the Harpy”. In what was probably the best episode this season so far we were again all over the map. We had tender moments, some comic relief, but also some heartbreaking losses. As always the SRM crew breaks it down and has you laughing through all of it. Also in this episode we are joined for the first time in a year by SRM original Andrew via skype. Real fun chat about a fantastic episode.

We also named our winner in the April review contest. That person will receive a copy of  “The World of Ice and Fire” hardcover. For May if you follow us on Twitter @SRMPodcast you’ll get some other awesome GoT related prize. So go to twitter now and follow! Also, go to AudibleTrial.com/StarkRavenMad to sign up for a FREE trial of the Audible service and get yourself a FREE audiobook download. You can choose from the GoT books!

SRM Season 5 Episode 2: Qyburn Gets Ahead

srm 5This episode of SRM covers Season 5 Episode 2 of Game of Thrones. In an episode that took us all over Westeros and Esos we got to check in and also progress several storylines. Lots of ups and downs for characters tonight, but we know very well that the highs for any character typically don’t come without a price. Only two episodes into this season and if we can keep up this pace this could outdo last season, which at the start seemed an impossible task.
