This episode is the first of the spoiler free episodes and there's a lot to cover, see the running order below.

Rank #6: Episode 23a - Game of Thrones Special

Podcast cover
Read more
It's technological mayhem here at WIGWIONAWS HQ, hence why this special addendum episode to episode 23 is out before the actual episode itself! Max and Michael take some time to discuss the end of Game of Thrones, the final season and the story overall as we try to work out what to do with the rest of our lives now. Obviously, massive spoilers as if you couldn't guess.

Apologies for the poor sound quality (even by our standards) of this episode. We will be back to our usual methods for the next full episode (episode 24).
