In the Akron Beacon Journal and Ohio.com newsroom, we love talking about "Game of Thrones." For the eighth and final season, we decided to record it and release it as a podcast. In honor of the seven kingdoms on the show, we're calling it Seven Minutes in Westeros (though in our debut episode we overshot our allotted time).

This week digital content editor Dan Kadar and deputy metro editor Joe Thomas break down the first episode.

The debut episode, titled "Winterfell," was full of reunions. We talk about the biggest moments of the episode, our winners (Arya Stark) and losers (Jamie Lannister and Daenerys Targaryen) and predict who will rule the Iron Throne at the end of the season.
