Soft but on point
I was hesitant at first because neither host seems strong or certain about their views. However, over the first episode I came to appreciate their style and humbly retract my initial reticence.
Insightful, on point and enjoyable to listen to. Would like to hear them do more of my favorites (if they do I don't know but will find out) like Preacher, Leftovers, and anything else they want to discuss.
Podcasts like this one extends the experience of great television; I always want more and hearing these two fellows rehash the content gives me joy.
Expand and keep doing what you do.
USA USA USA
Of course the best gods are American. And the best American Gods podcast is right here!
A podcast with lots of potential
Pretty good podcast! It feels like I'm listening to two friends just chat about a show, not a scripted podcast. I'm excited to listen along as the show comes out.
