It’s all about our two favorite places on this week’s episode; New York City and . . .Westeros!
We recap the Game of Thrones season seven finale, “The Dragon and the Wolf,” and celebrate the Stark Siblings’ team work, analyze the Kings Landing Meet-Up Royale and question the ramifications of Jon and Dany’s union (and when we say ‘union’ we mean they SMASHED!) We also tell you where we think this season ranks compared to others and let you know how long you’ll have to wait for the 8th and final season of this epic series.
We also talk about the jam packed week of pop culture consumption we experienced in our hometown of NYC ( the greatest city in the world – just ask the Schuyler Sisters!). Our 7 days of being out and about include:
- AfroPunk – where we saw live performances from Solange, Sampha, Soul II Soul, Raphael Saddiq, Michael Kiwanuka, Macy Gray, Nao, Blitz the Ambassador and hung out with hundreds of people representing Black Girl Magic and Black Boy Joy!
- Dave Chappelle & Solange at the iconic Radio City Music Hall.
- An exclusive screening of the new doc, A Suitable Girl, that explores arranged marriages in India.
- Fellow Max Fun podcasters The Greatest Generation’s live Show (and after the live show there was the after party!).
- Kendrick Lamar live!
And Amita Big Sells Sean something to help him – and you – deal with Game of Thrones withdrawal.
Plus – we review the new single and music video, “Sky Walker,” by singer, songwriter and mutual object of Pop Insiders’ affection -Miguel.
