Its the final episode of Shark Liver Oil's rollocking good romp through George RR Martin's A Feast For Crows! And what a feast we have for you here. In a shock twist, Brienne appears to have survived, only to appear to die again a few pages later in another shock twist. Will she return in yet another shock twist when we get to A Dance of Dragons? And speaking of shock twists... its the return of Pate!!! (who?). Dude from the prologue. Wanted to sleep with a prostitute. Met some shady fellow in an alleyway and passed out. Of all the characters to make a dramatic and glorious return, he probably wasn't up there with Robb Stark, but we'll take what we can get at this stage..Get your feedback into us on twitter @sharkliveroil or on email sharkliveroilpodcast@gmail.com

In Descent, Shark Liver Oil explores the murky nadir of A Feast For Crows. We plough through more Cersei insanity and spend almost an entire chapter locked in a tower with a petulant and unapologetic teenager. We then get a luxurious amount of detail lavished upon Sansa and Sweetrobin's climb down the mountain. With no Brienne or Jaime to redeem it, this looks like a bumpy ride ahead.

But what's this? Dave actually liked most of this part and it wasn't as bad as Matt remembered from the last read. Maybe there's light at the end of the tunnel after all! And there's also the long overdue return to our long running joke about Westeros's favourite elderly House DJ, Grandmasta Pycelle. Lets get it on!

We continue our tour of Westeros like the hardy northmen we are, not even asking for a refund when the bed turns out to be more populated with bugs than Kings Landing is by psychos; INSTEAD, we hear the world's worst marriage proposal, see the outcome of some truly horrendous dental work, and Ser Loras encounters a Family Guy tribute he'll never forget. Matt's still scared that our audience is standing around in hoods, silently watching us - so if you'd like to relieve his misery, get in touch through @sharkliveroil on Twitter or sharkliveroilpodcast@gmail.com for email. See you next week for a special edition entitled Matt Gets Really Cross.

We continue our rollocking good romp through George RR Martin's A Feast For Crows with Part 7: The Quiet Isle. Brienne takes a breather on Monk Island, a not so cunning plot of Cersei's backfires spectacularly and we visit Braavos and meet Cassio - King Of The Seals. Will he make a late bid for the Iron Throne? We certainly hope so. We're also making a heartfelt plea for feedback. We can see from our stats that we've had a bit of a spike in (apparently silent) listeners recently. Why not drop us an email sharkliveroilpodcast@gmail.com or send us a tweet @sharkliveroil and we'll give you a mention on the cast! Or don't, and continue to freak Matt out. That would be funny too.

We're back, galloping across Westeros, thundering through King's Landing and doing fuck all in the North because there's none of that in this book and George Martin doesn't care how you feel. BUT INSTEAD we've got a new entry in the popular 'poor life choices in Westeros' series (now starring Cersei), a rare sighting of Jaime's sense of honour, and the mother of all hangovers. Grab your bottles of ouzo destructo and get involved - we're sharkliveroilpodcast@gmail.com and @sharkliveroil on Twitter.

We're at the halfway stage of A Feast For Crows by George RR Martin and things are starting to heat up! There's a crazy one man cavalry charge to round off an even crazier freewheeling teen plot to take over Westeros, a diplomatic masterclass from everyone's favourite slimy politician and some strange happenings over at the House of Black and White. And if that wasn't enough there's flying porridge and a Westeros wide ban of beets (not the headphones) as the realm's entitled children decide they're fed up and they're not going to fucking take it any more. It promises to be a lively discussion.
