MPH Podcast EP #15 – Mother of Catdog

The anticipation is palpable as we prepare for the season seven premier of Game of Thrones.  Liz uses mostly the right character names as she takes us through a recap of key plot lines to follow.  Just when you think she’s talking about another show or book or something, she brings it back to get us ready for the big night ahead.  We mix in a little Plant Talk as well on this episode and Poparella joins us for a Pop Culture update.  Valar Morghulis kids!
