David Odyssey’s light shines on all earthly beings

David Odyssey is made of ocean-safe glitter, precious metals and the brightest light of the moon. He is an effervescent alien being we are lucky to share space with here on earth. His interviews are fascinating and consistently hilarious. David has a language all his own and I only wish I could study it and take it with me to far-off lands. Thank you for bringing the charts, qualities and struggles of so many people I admire into my life. And don’t forget to book David for a reading!

A Jewish Astrological Delight

This pod is so goooooood. David is such a charmer, and has interesting and funny takes on everything, from pop culture, to buffy, to whatever random female-led movie from 50 years ago he's just rewatched. Not to mention, he knows everything there is to know about astrology, and rather than being annoying about it like everybody else, he wields that knowledge to answer the one question that's top of mind for every queer: why are our queens the way they are? We live in a horrible world, and this pod is one of the few good things left in it. Do yourself a favor and tune in. :)

A master of the craft

David’s interviews are so insightful and thorough that you can tell he was born to do this. He always get to the deepest topics and never asks guests the same questions. Has really helped me learn more about guests I previously thought I knew everything about. Love him and this pod
