    American Gods - 208 - Moon Shadow

    American Gods' season two ended with "Moon Shadow," not what we typically expect from a season finale. There wasn't much resolution, heart-pounding action, or massive reveals.

    The King Bee dives deep into Orson Welles' "War of The Worlds" while Gene Lyons examines the new Tech Boy and how his powers might make him a god unlike any we've ever seen.

    American Gods - 205 - The Ways of The Dead

    American Gods - 205 - The Ways of The Dead

    "The Ways of The Dead" —episode 5 of American Gods' second season— tackled racism in America and finally gave us the Laura Moon and Mad Sweeney sex scene we never knew we wanted.

    Along the way, we were dragged through barrage of historical and mythical allusions, includingnthe murder of William "Froggie James," Arviss The Dwarf King, Yggdrasil The World Tree, Hildisvíni The Battle Swine, Baron Samedi and Maman Brigitte, and Buile Shuibhne.

    American Gods - 204 - The Greatest Story Ever Told

    "The Greatest Story Ever Told" —episode 4 of American Gods' second season— was so different from previous episodes that we thought we'd tuned into the wrong show. And then we realized we might be witnessing the birth of a god for the first time.

    New Media finally arrived on the scene and wasn't quite what we expected. Then things got REALLY unexpected as she ... interfaced with the god of surveillance, Argus.

Fun-both thoughtful and irreverent

These guys have been getting hit lately for being too down on this show. I like the tv show (love the book), but am happy to hear them both praise and “shat” on it. Worth a listen.

These guys know how to poison a show

I enjoyed American Gods but these guys none stop negativity started something festering until I couldn’t watch it anymore. No need to listen to the podcast then.
