Original Content podcast: Dragons love symbolism, and other lessons from the 'Game of Thrones' finale

Remember how it felt six weeks ago, right before "Game of Thrones" returned for its final season? Darrell Etherington, the original co-host of the Original Content podcast, joins us once again to wrap up our week-by-week discussion of the show's final season.
