On this Special Edition episode, the Moderators of r/ASOIAF – Bookshelfstud, Glass_Table_Girl, JoeMagician, and AdmiralKird sit down and discuss the latest Game of Thrones Teaser Trailer for S7!


MM2 The Citadel

Maester Monthly, your favorite (pseudo)monthly podcast, is back!

Last month we kicked off a new podcast hosted by us, the moderators of /r/asoiaf. Maester Monthly is our space to talk about our favorite recent highlights from the subreddit, as well as doing a little in-depth ASOIAF discussion of our own.

This episode covers some of our favorite stuff from February (and late January) 2017. We introduce a new segment, the Unpopular Opinion Thunderdome, and debate the merits of A Feast for Crows – is it as Subtly Nuanced as some people claim? Finally, we round out the hour with an in-depth discussion of, fittingly, the Maesters and the Citadel.

Your hosts are /u/Bookshelfstud, /u/glass-table-girl, and /u/JoeMagician; we’re joined this episode by Very Special Guest /u/MightyIsobel!


As always:

– We make NO MONEY from this, no ads/patreon etc. You can pay us in upvotes and sweet nothings whispered in our ears.

– A HUGE THANKS to /u/-Sam-R- and /u/AdmiralKird, our fearless, tireless editors/producers who put in an insane amount of effort to make sure we sound like fairly well-adjusted, funny people.
