Winter is coming, and so is the Zamboni! This week, we mix happy sparkly sports romantic comedy with grim dark high fantasy epic, as Yuri!!! on Ice crosses over with Game of Thrones. Check us out on iTunes, Soundcloud, and Stitcher for a discussion on the limited time frame of athletic careers, dragon baby’s day out, and how talons are nature’s ice skates. Also, in our version, Oberyn Martell ends up just fine.
Where you can find this pop culture (as of show date):
- Yuri!!! on Ice is streaming on platforms like Funimation and Crunchyroll.
