Dying Is the Best Thing That Happened to Laura Moon

“Love always has you at a disadvantage.” “Death has me at a disadvantage.” And I was smitten! I gotta admit, guys, the first 45 minutes of this episode, I thought, “Oh god—Is Laura friggin’ Moon a main character now? With an entire episode being devoted to her, she probably has...

American Gods Source Material

Fellas, Gotta call a time out for a sec. The way you guys nitpicked this episode had me somewhat confused and (based on my “know the source material” bias) a little angry. First If you don’t know the source material, at least know the source. I had never read any...

‘Git Gone’ Humanizes Laura Moon

I just wanted to write in to say that I enjoyed this episode. It wasn’t perfect and I agree with some of the complaints that were mentioned in the Deep Dive episode, but it worked for me because it accomplished two of the main things that I had hoped would...

Bored Until Shadow Showed Up

I just discovered your podcast while I was searching for opinions on the American Gods show. A small back history; I have read the book (many times) and listened to the full cast audio book. I really love this story and most of Neil Gaiman’s work. I was very excited...

A Woman’s View on ‘Git Gone’

Hi guys, I was surprised at Gene & Big D’s dislike of the episode–for Gene, it came down to acting and pacing; for Big D it was the qualities of the character herself. For me, it formed a coherent backstory that added much-needed context–Shadow’s affinity for coin tricks, why Laura...

Why Did Shadow Moon Choose Laura?

This take off on the Laura Moon story was revealing, but I agree with the hosts in that it did not really advance the story for me. Zombie visitations bring nothing good basically. My takeaway is “you gotta serve somebody” to quote the great Bob Dylan song. Laura expected to...

Mr. Wednesday Is Odin

Hey guys, I just wanted to point out that in one of your intro videos you read the description of the book, which literally states Mr. Wednesday is Odin. I’m just letting you know that you guys have definitely already said Wednesday = Odin. In your latest videos for ep....

What the Hell Did I Just Watch?

Wow … What the hell did I just watch!? Could you cram any more characters in one episode?? A few more puzzle pieces dropped into place…. Shadow and Laura: When he opened the door and saw her, he didn’t know whether to shit or go blind!! Then he wanted to...
