Maester Monthly is back for a massive Episode IV!
Maester Monthly is the r/asoiaf “modcast” about you for you, covering the hottest topics of the past month. This episode features…
- Subreddit Highlights: Our favorite stuff from April and May of 2017
- The Unpopular Opinion Thunderdome takes on the topic of the Game of Thrones Spinoffs
- Main Topic: The infamous Five Year Gap. Was George RR Martin right for doing it? What did it mean for AFFC/ADWD? What would the books look like without the Five Year Gap? And what does it all mean for The Winds of Winter?
Your hosts are /u/Bookshelfstud, /u/glass_table_girl, and /u/JoeMagician; we’re joined this episode by Very Special Guests /u/BryndenBFish, /u/-Sam-R-, and /u/AdmiralKird. We have also greatly enhanced our youtube video presentation, so check that out as well.
– 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.
