SRM S05E10: A Stannis of Unfortunate Events

This episode of Stark Raven Mad covers episode 10, the season finale, of Game of Thrones entitled “Mother’s Mercy”. This episode still had me feeling a bit empty. A lot of things almost happening. The [...]

SRM S05E09: The Dorne Ultimatum

The SRM Guest Right: Hafthór Júlíus Björnsson (The Mountain!)
1454

Hafthór 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!

The SRM Guest Right: Scott Adsit (30 Rock)
1277

Scott Adsit (Mr. Show, Moral Orel, 30 Rock and lots more) was in Philly this week for Philly Improv Theater’s DuoFest and he was kind enough to give me some time to chat. What you’re going to hear is part of a larger conversation about Second City, 30 Rock and comedy in general. The full chat will be available on my other podcast “Gettin’ Close with Mike Marbach” in a couple weeks. We talked the night before the podcast and he said he was a GoT fan so I let him know we’d probably have to talk about the show. It’s a quick conversation covering a few different topics that tend to get debated on SRM. I just thought it was something fun to include for y’all. Enjoy!
