American Gods

Converting Neil Gaiman's "American Gods" from novel to TV show is no easy feat. With complex symbolism and a massive cast including Ian McShane and Crispin Glover, things will get hairy. That's why the American Gods podcast is here! Following on the heels of their hit "Westworld" podcast, the Shat on TV team works with the audience to explain old gods and new through interactive episodes and well-researched insights.

"The Ways of The Dead" —episode 5 of American Gods' second season— tackled racism in America, showed us just how graphic STARZ is willing to get, and finally gave us the Laura Moon and Mad Sweeney sex scene we never knew we wanted.

Along the way, we were dragged through barrage of historical and mythical allusions, including:

  • the murder of William "Froggie James"
  • Arviss The Dwarf King
  • Yggdrasil The World Tree
  • Hildisvíni The Battle Swine
  • Baron Samedi and Maman Brigitte 
  • and Buile Shuibhne.

And you bet your ass King Bee and Gene Lyons dug into every one. Plus, we get another voicemail from listener Tequila Mockingbird and an email from American Gods superfan Elizabeth.
