Who Won the Week, Episode 23: Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, and Hollywood whitewashing

Welcome to the latest episode of Who Won the Week, a weekly podcast in which Blastr staffers Adam Swiderski, Aaron Sagers, Dany Roth and Cher Martinetti look back at the week that was and the stories that are blowing up the geek-o-sphere. 

This week, we kick things off by following up on our preview of Game of Thrones' Season 6 premiere with a look back at last week's return to Westeros. Did it hit the sweet spot? Then we dive into the announcement of Doctor Who's new companion in the person of Pearl Mackie's Bill. Finally, we tackle the tricky subject of Hollywood whitewashing when it comes to Tilda Swinton's turn as The Ancient One in Doctor Strange and the live-action rendition of Ghost in the Shell. Give it a listen below!
