BiancaAlicea ,

Great pod, funny and helpful.

Thank you guys for keeping the pod going. American gods has had its ups and downs but your pod has always been great. Helpful tips, great comments and a conversation that sounds real verses just blowing smoke. Thanks again!

Taickin ,

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.

paramaster ,

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.
