Adaptation Podcast

Loads of character discussion ensues as well as talk of who everyone wants on the throne versus who might actually get there. The hosts that are farther along in their reading bite their tongues to keep from spoiling while the newbie readers habitually add ‘at this point’ to everything they say just in case.

What are your season 4 predictions? Leave them in the comments, but no spoilers!

EDITOR’S NOTE/SPOILER WARNING: Though Ryan and Sarah didn’t fully succeed in not dropping hints about what happens past where the TV show has reached, speaking as a person that has only read up to the end of book 2, I did not feel spoiled by anything they said. They…
