Unauthorized Cinnamon is a podcast that guides you episode-by-episode through David Milch's stunning masterpiece, the HBO original series Deadwood. Each week, hosts Daniel Herman and Harry J. Perales will dive deep into one episode, exploring the characters, themes, cinematography, and performances of what might be the greatest television show ever made.
Episode 25 - "Tell Your God to Ready for Blood"
For the premiere of season 3, Harry and Daniel are joined by a special guest, comedian Matt Donovan. Besides examining what's new in Deadwood and what is on the horizon, they also discuss the Cornish language, the Star Wars prequels, and whether or not Cy is the worst person on the show.
Episode 24 - "Boy the Earth Talks To"
It's the finale of season 2, and what a finale it is. He who was often named finally arrives in camp as George Hearst makes his entrance. Plus a deal is struck with Yankton, Wu makes a big decision about his future, and there's a lot of axing in the back. And there's a wedding!
Episode 23 - "The Whores Can Come"
This week, the camp says goodbye to William. While Martha and Seth get used to the absence of William, Alma gets used to the idea of life with Ellsworth, Andy gets used to his new job, Cy gets used to playing second fiddle to Al, and Jane gets used to new boots.
Episode 22 - "Advances, None Miraculous"
In episode 10 of season 2, the camp is dealing with a trauma to a part of its body. William is gravely injured and not likely to recover, and nearly everyone in camp is affected by it. Business must go on, however, as Al enlists Sol and others to help him pull one over on Commissioner Jarry.
Special Episode - We're Back, We're Sorry
The podcast has finally returned after a long time off. In this special episode, Daniel and Harry discuss what kept them away, and what's been happening in the meantime. That means some discussion of the most exciting news of the year, the possibility of two Deadwood movies.
Episode 21 - "Amalgamation and Capital"
In the first of an unofficial two-parter, the residents of Deadwood find themselves forced to deal with the necessities of life when they'd really rather not. Al has to deal with Miss Isringhausen, Charlie has to deal with Wolcott, and Mose has to deal with himself.

15 years later and still fascinating
I’m rewatching Deadwood for 3rd time (building up to finally watching 2029 movie)band these podcasts are a perfect complement. Love the insider info, recap of DVD commentaries, and pointing out of subtleties I may have missed or wondered about. These guys are straightforward and comprehensive. They’re not annoying at all (like others who laugh at their own “jokes” incessantly). Highly recommended!
Thorough and insightful
I found this late after I had rewatched Deadwood (the best show in history) for the 4th or 5th time. I found myself yearning to learn more about the characters and the actors.
This podcast does an excellent job of taking you scene by scene, and providing great insight on behind the scenes info and how the show matches with known true events in Deadwood history.
Heartbroken to see they stopped after season 2 and I truly hope they decide to pick it back up.
I echo the sentiments of the other reviews. You can tell Harry and Daniel truly care about the story and put a lot of effort into the podcast. We can’t wait to hear the rest. Come back, we miss you!
