UBS Podcast – House of the Dragon 1×01 Review

Julia and Kylie reunite with Caroline to cover yet another HBO A Song of Ice and Fire-universe show House of the Dragon…this time with actually nice things to say? In addition to, dare we say it, a degree of dramatic satisfaction. This episode focuses on the series premiere, “The Heirs of the Dragon.”
