About Michael DiMauro

Michael founded GeeklyInc with Tim Lanning way back in 2013 when they realized they had two podcasts and needed a place to stick them. Since then, Geekly has grown and taken off in ways Michael could have never imagined.


It is with the upmost excitement and glee that I welcome you back to Cast of Thrones: The Game of Thrones Podcast. We were never truly gone, but now that the show has started back up we will ride our flaming Diredonkeys into your ears doing what we do best – discussing this week’s episode of Game of Thrones.

This was a wonderful whirlwind of a podcast. So much happened that I am not too sure where to begin. We got to check in with all of our pals to make sure everything was going A-O.K. Joffrey is still being a little stinker but fortunately Sansa has learned to deal with him. Tyrion has taken his rightful place as acting Hand of the King for his father, Tywin Lannister, but I am worried that Cersei will not be pleased. The Starks are up to their old hijinks what with the war happening and all. We also get to meet the most serious Baratheon ever to grace this good Westeros. Not to be outdone Dany tries to feed a dragon! It is so crazy.

Thank you all for listening and reviewing and telling your friends and getting those weird tattoos. We have some awesome things planned for this magical second season of Game of Thrones and I hope you stick around to experience them. You will be a better person if you do!

  1. LOL @ Frank and Funion! Just don’t kill him on your name day!

    Cressen’s poison is called the Strangler to Maesters in the know. As well as Maesters the poison is used by the faceless men and alchemists of Lys. (I’ll shut up now on that).

  2. What was that? I mean. By the gods. Damn. That was…excellent!

    Great first episode, guys. It was very thoughtful of you to start your episode in a similar way of the show – introducing yourselves and what you’re all about. I convinced at least a few friends to start listening, and I know they’ll appreciate knowing where you’re coming from.

    On to my critique: I really appreciate that you are willing to go on little tangents. Even the ones that are meant for comic relief make me look at the episodes in a different light. I find it useful to watch the ep once, listen to your podcast, then watch it again. Helps me find things I might have missed.

    That said, I was planning on writing a comical comment, but I’ll play it straight this time. There’s plenty of time for that going forward. Keep up the great work!

    Oh, and Mike Dao, as Wilford Brimley says, “Be sure to check your oatmeal”. Wait. That’s not right.
