We know almost everybody is disappointed with the Game of Thrones ending - trust us, we feel your pain - but maybe this will cheer you up. All four of our hosts--Tom, Matt, Milena, and Lauren--get together in the studio to reflect on our first season before they each went their separate ways for the summer. But not to worry, episodes will continue to be released over the summer... but from Moscow! Thanks for listening!!
