The Bastards of Kingsgrave are the illegitimate, off-topic offspring of House Manwoody. We cover anime, manga, and Western animation, as well as a variety of pop culture topics. We've been dubbed the "intersection between A Song of Ice and Fire and everything else." We are also the only podcast currently doing a reread of George RR Martin's earlier works.

Warning: Most episodes are PG-25 and contain references and spoilers for George RR Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series, the source material for HBO's Game of Thrones. That being said, there shouldn't be anything comprehensible beyond season 4 of the show.
