Podcast Honored

A somewhat belated congratulations to Kyle, Mimi, Ashley, Amin, and the many other co-hosts, guests, and visitors at A Podcast of Ice and Fire, who just won the "Geekie Award" for Best Podcast.

I've never actually met the folks from the Podcast of Ice & Fire... well, most of them, anyway, I may have run into one or two on book tours... but I have listened to them from time to time, and they seem to have a lot of fun.  They are not always right, but they are [almost] always interesting, and worth the listen.  So give them a try, if you're a fan of podcasts.  You can find them at http://podcastoficeandfire.com/ talking about the show, the books, and... for reasons I am not entirely clear on... House Manwoody.

Congrats on the honor, guys.  Take a bow.

Manwoody for life!
Thanks for honoring the APOIAF crew, they certainly share the love right back at you. Creaking doors and boobytrapped saddles 4 evah!

I've listened to most of the 100+ episodes and it really is a great podcast. They may not get everything right as you mentioned, but they do give some really insightful and entertaining analysis and they come up with the best theories (you should ask Amin about his 'feathered hat' theory if you ever meet him and see if he's right haha).

Congrats APOIAF and congrats George on an amazing book series that is successful in basically every possible way!

Conga-rats! (Congratulations)
Dear Mr. Martin,

First of all: I apologize for my english. As I am from germany and only 15 years old my english is not that good, you see.

I have already commented several of your posts and I even wrote a fan-letter to you. However, I did not receive any answer yet.
Well, my mother died not too long ago and I am rather sad about it.
Nevertheless Game of Thrones/ A song of Ice & Fire is the only thing that is able to cheer me up. I would really, really love to visit you in Santa Fe or at least keep in contact with me. Desperately, I am writing these words.
Please Mr. Martin, respond to me. This means a lot to me. Thank you.



(Again: My english is quite a mess. Also: Hodor!)

There are a lot of podcasts about A Song of Ice and Fire and Game of Thrones thanks to the series, but this crew has been doing it the longest. They started before the series was even an idea. They aren't the first podcast about aSoIaF but they are the first that are still podcasting. They earned this. Go house Manwoody!

Re: Thank you from the Podcast of Ice and Fire
Thank you George for the kind words about our podcast!

We did meet once, but it was years before the podcast was actually founded. I'm a big fan of your earlier science fiction works and writings, along with ASOIAF.

Thank you again,

-Amin, APOIAF Host.

I've been listening to them since 2010 or so
They do a really good job of going into in-depth on many subjects and theories, I really like their discussions and the humor intertwined within :-).

Congratulations to House Manwoody
I'm so happy for these guys! I'm a really big fan of ASOIAF and I thoroughly enjoy the off beat theories, high brow debates, and low brow humor I find at House Manwoody. Keep up the good work Amin, Mimi, Ashley, and Kyle!

Also, thank you George for creating the wonderful material that has inspired thousands of hours of fascinating discussion, and surely will continue to do so for many years to come.

Epic Podcast for an Epic Book Series
Congratulations to APOIAF for winning this award and for getting the coveted "GRRM livejournal" shoutout. I also think that the podcast hosts (with 118 episodes of experience and counting) would deliver a fantastic interview with George regarding a deeper analysis of the books most interviewers would not be capable of. The long-form format of the podcast would allow for a wide variety of topics to be discussed, and would certainly be a great listen.

Hey George

Listening to these guys for years as well. I love the podcast all the hosts are cool people who bring different assets to the Podcast. It would melt my mind if you were to jump on the podcast one time for a interview. PLEASEEEEEEEEEEE



House Manwoody !!

I just want to say congratulations to this amazing podcast for the honor they've received and a thanks to you, George for recognizing their hard work and success.

We fans can be a bit over-zealous at times when it comes to waiting for you to create the books that we love so much, but podcasts like this help so much to lighten the pain of that vigil.

I hope that you'll join them for an episode some time in the future. I have no doubt that you'd have a great (and unique) time talking with those four hosts

You're cool, George!
Sep. 12th, 2013 05:51 am (UTC)
It's the podcasters who are cool.

Yes sir, but don't sell yourself short :-)

Podcast Interview....
My mind would most thoroughly be blown if you ever appeared on this podcast...Come on George you know you want to and the best part - no old/tired questions! A set of totally new and insight gathering questions for you to ponder and comment on.

House Manwoody!

I was so excited to see this journal entry! These pod casters are great! Mr Martin you should be a guest sometime when time permits! Perhaps right before your Winds of Winter book tour next year?

Love you, Santa
I know this has nothing to do with this post. I just wanted to flatter you a bit. Say I think you are like the grandpa which people who never had a grandpa would have ever wanted, fun and full of stories. You are the Dumbledore of the stories! I am sorry if my english is not very good since I'm from Spain but... I believe some parts of Song of Ice and Fire are simply genius. Thank you for Daenaerys, Tyrion, Kingslayer and Jon Snow. And thank you for some little characters who tell so much with such beautiful and full of reality writing, so raw and direct. Thanks a lot for these books, really. Santa Claus came to literature.

Best Interview Ever
I just wanted to say I completely agree that if you did an interview with A Podcast of Ice and Fire it would be unbelievably awesome. Not only are they a very cool group, they and their listeners are huge fans of the series. you could expect abundant flattery and some great, thought provoking, in-depth questions. I would love to listen to that so I hope you'll consider.
Sep. 12th, 2013 08:39 pm (UTC)
As a proud bannerperson of House Manwoody (*titter*) I'm so pleased to see them get the recognition they deserve! And I do hope to hear your voice along with Mimi, Amin, Ashley and Kyle's some day soon, Mr. Martin. That would be a fine vintage of epic.

This is probably my favorite podcast, I'm glad they're getting some wider recognition! Their combination of humor and analysis makes for an enjoyable listen. If you have the time for it, it would be great if you could make an appearance on one of their episodes.
