May 14, 2019

SPECIAL RELEASE! As GAME OF THRONES careens toward its final episode, Jay Sherer invites Stefan Sasse (from the Boiled Leather Audio Hour podcast) and Rod and Karen (from The Black Guy Who Tips podcast) to discuss why GAME OF THRONES matters so much to our generation.

GAME OF THRONES has become one of the most watched cable television show of all time. But... why? 

  • What has made the show (and the books) so popular?
  • Does GAME OF THRONES reflect truth? If so, how?
  • What characters do we resonate with... and why?

Be sure to subscribe to The Black Guy Who Tips and the Boiled Leather Audio Hour wherever you listen to podcasts!

Also, we have two amazing AFTERCASTS for you this week! Listen to Jay's full-length conversations with Stefan, Rod, and Karen. Both conversations were fun, engaging, and at times, profound. Get access to them for $2-a-month or more!
