Disc Review American Gods S2
Alan reviews the physical media releases of American Gods Season 2 and Season 1. Alan rounds up all the extras and complains about the features that aren’t available. There isn’t very much here for collector’s, but its always nice to have the discs on hand if you can’t stream.
Sarah pulled a stool up at The Gem to talk Deadwood with Alan. HBO released a movie to wrap-up Deadwood, and that gave us an excuse to fan-out about the whole show. We talk about Sarah’s ships, Alan’s politics, and the vulgar poetry that is Deadwood’s dialogue.
Moon Shadow American Gods 208
Anya and Alan talk about Fake News, Metronomes, Retcons, and the meaning of snails. Can you use boot-contaminated blood in a potion? Anya lays out why this finale is just like a Buffy finale. We wrap up Season 2, thank all of you for listening, and speculate about what comes next.
Anya and Alan run down Season 2 of American Gods by going through all the feedback that has come in. We talk about what we got right, what we got wrong, and how impossible Gaelic is for Alan.
The Treasure of the Sun American Gods 207
Anya and Alan talk Three Beats that are Five Beats, Adaptation, and Chekhov’s shotgun. “The Treasure of the Sun” is a rich multi-layered episode that we dive into. Learn about Banshees, the origin of The Eye of Sauron, and how things went down in the book.

Intelligent and chock full of insight
Started looking for a podcast worthy of Gaiman’s work - these folks do a great job weaving the psychological, historical and metaphysical together in their American God’s analysis. (Still holding out hope for the TV show!)
Insightful and heartwarming
These hosts are intelligent, well spoken, and heartwarmingly kind to one another. If you want to listen to a podcast with two people who know a lot about mythos, current social hot topics, and know how to have a debate without getting cranky? This is the podcast for you (you should also prob like American Gods, but I won't judge either way).
Love these guys!
Thoughtful analysis with enthusiasm.
