Oh hey there! If you're having Game of Thrones withdrawals, might we suggest a dose of Nerdette ? On this episode, we talk with a woman who administers drugs like LSD, Ecstasy, and psilocybin to volunteers in an effort to learn more about the human nervous system.

8.7: One Last Time
It’s the end of an era. After more than 70 hours of television and nearly ten years of worrying about the Stark children, Game of Thrones is finally over. Tricia, Greta and Peter got together one last time to reflect on the series..
8.6: ARE YOU HAPPY NOW?!
Game of Thrones is over, and there is a *lot* to process. In this recap of the series finale, Tricia realizes she doesn’t like endings, Peter wants Jon Snow’s head and Greta observes the Valyrian word for Dorne appears to be Dornut . Listen to this recap of Game of Thrones Season 8, episode 6, titled “The Iron Throne.” Then be sure to come back next week for our final recap of the entire series , including a debate on the forthcoming spinoffs and whether or not we’ll truly ever get to read those pesky books. Also: Last chance to get a sweet Nerdette or Nerdette Recaps tote bag when you support public media in Chicago! Check it out:
8.5: Well, That Escalated Quickly
That was pretty messed up! The penultimate episode of Game of Thrones has come and gone, and we all just witnessed Dany commit a few thousand war crimes. What just happened? Madness! How are we feeling? Conflicted! But there was some good news if you're a land speculator: Now might just be a great time to buy real estate in King’s Landing. Join Nerdette and Peter Sagal as we consider the super low mortgage rates!
8.4: Family Meeting!
With the Battle of Winterfell over, the Stark clan needs to talk. What do we do about this Dany lady? And who’s making dinner Tuesday night? There are only two episodes left before Game of Thrones concludes, and Peter, Tricia and Greta have convened to discuss this episode's curious events. Consider: Jon decided to play telephone with his bombshell of a secret, Varys openly discussed treason against Queen Dany, and Qyburn once again refused to put on an undershirt (a simple crew neck would be FINE). Have a listen, and remember that we also want to hear from you! Join the conversation and share your own theories with us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram using the hashtag .
