Hello all! Long-time listener, first time poster and pledge!

Name: Ben
Age: 30
Location: Sydney, Australia

Favorite great house: Arryn
Favorite secondary house: Coldwater & Cerwyn

Favorite book in the series: Game of Thrones - so much happened and was obviously the eye-opener to the entire series for me!

Favorite POV: Asha & Tyrion

What are some of your other favorite authors and books? I'm a military history buff/nerd so read of a lot non-fiction/textbook type books. That said, Bernard Cornwell is a massive favourite (Sharpe, Uhtred & Starbuck series are favs) of mine. Dewey Lambdin also writes some outstanding naval historical fiction with his character Alan Lewrie.

How did you get into the series? I saw Sean Bean have his head chopped off when I was flicking through channels at work. I spent the rest of the day reading the ASOIAF wiki and was suckered in immediately.

Other hobbies: Reading and writing military history, a little gaming, a lot of sport (soccer & ice hockey predominantly).

Name: Kathryn
Age: 23
Location: New Hampshire
Favorite great house: Stark
Favorite secondary house: Hightower (really hoping there'll be more on them in TWOW)
Favorite book in the series: tied between ADWD and ASOS
Favorite POV: Jon. I also really love the Sansa and Davos chapters as well.
What are some of your other favorite authors and books? My favorite thing I've ever read is The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka, but I don't know if that counts since its more of a short story than a book. Another short story I really love is Ward 6 by Anton Chekov. Novels: Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, 'The Bell Jar', the 1st 2 novels in Mervyn Peaks's 'Gormenghast' series, and House of Leaves. Authors: Kafka, Orwell, Dostoevsky, Phillip K. Dick, Camus, Bradbury. (Wow, I sound pretentious with that list.)
How did you get into the series? Started reading after the 3rd season of GOT.
Other hobbies: drawing, writing (bad poetry mostly), reading, sociology and history. more recently: gothic architecture.

Big fan of the show! It's clear that both of you know your books, and blend that knowledge with humor and professionalism to create my favorite ASoiF podcast. I -believe- you guys are local (Aziz's Twitter says Roswell, GA and I think Sean works at a game store I sometimes visit), so if there's ever any type of meetup event where you play games and talk about Game of Thrones, I'd love to know =)

Name: Derek
Age: 30
Location: Atlanta, GA
Favorite great house: Greyjoy (changes from year to year)
Favorite secondary house: Royce, Dayne, Tarly
Favorite book in the series: SoS. DwD is amazing, but SoS is a classic.
Favorite POV: Melisandre. I screamed out loud when I came across her chapter in DwD.
What are some of your other favorite authors and books? Daniel Abraham, Scott Lynch, Joe Abercrombie and Steven Erikson have done the job for me in recent years when I need a fantasy novel fix.
How did you get into the series? Autumn 2001 when friends kept insisting.
Other hobbies: Poker, working out, conventions, tabletop games, Braves baseball, online PC games, movies, miscellaneous activities that seem interesting

Name: Beata
Age: 22
Location: Poland
Favorite great house: Stark
Favorite secondary house: Dayne
Favorite book in the series: either A Clash of Kings or A Storm of Swords
Favorite POV: Arya, Jon, Tyrion (excluding ADWD), Sansa, Asha and Bran
Other books/authors: everything by J.R.R. Tolkien and Carlos Ruiz Zafon (he also makes his fans wait for new books, but like with GRRM it's worth it), J.K. Rowling, C.S. Lewis and Tunnels series by Gordon&Williams.

How did you get into the series? I loved the 3rd season's trailer, so I started watching. I tried to stay away from the books, because I hate adaptations/screen versions and didn't want to ruin the show for myself, but bought all 5 a year later *and ruined the show for myself like I feared*

Hobbies: reading, listening to music, watching movies, doing and watching sports, discussing ASoIaF and going out with friends
