[Podcast] Git Gone — Episode 4 — American Gods Fan Podcast

Welcome to  American Gods Fan Podcast,  episode 4  “Git Gone”. This is the unofficial podcast about the hit Starz television program  American Gods  by fans for fans as brought to you by HorrorNewsTV.com, DocRotten.com, and GruesomeMagazine.com. The Grue-Crew behind the Hannibal Fan Podcast reunites to dive into the latest blood-soaked effort of Bryan Fuller as he brings to life the acclaimed novel from Neil Gaiman! Let’s set on a cross-country trip across America with Shadow Moon and Mr. Wednesday.

Episode Four follows the life and death and life of Laura Moon (Emily Browning) as she meets Shadow, falls in love with him, marries him, and betrays him. Only to be resurrected by him. Her story takes place during the first three episodes of American Gods season one, ending on the very note presented in the previous episode. And, it is remarkable.

American Gods Fan Podcast:  Season One
Episode 4  —  Git Gone
Aired May 28, 2017, on Starz

For many in the Grue-Crew, this episode starts off troubling most of the hosts – all, except Thomas. At least, initially. By the midway point, however, the entire Crew is fully on board. The hosts discuss what it all means. Doc ponders does she now have the “sun coin” within her and what happens when Mad Sweeney insists on retrieving it. What will Shadow do now that he has been hurt so badly by Laura and finds her sitting across from him – apparently  alive once again? Will she continue to color the show blood red with crimson splatter? The show continues to impress, proving worthy of the early second season renewal. Thank you, Starz!

Each week, the Grue-Crew will present some of their  favorite scenes in two spotlight segments. The first segment is The OMG Moment of the Week where they choose the bloodiest, goriest, most bizarre, most outrageous moment of the week’s episode. The second episode of American Gods offers more fantasy oriented choices, far less bloody than last week. Which shocking twist will the hosts decide upon? The second segment is The Folklore Feature of the Week where they look back at the Americana moment of the week or the historical moment dealing with the American Gods themselves. As their story unfolds and their journey across America continues what riches will they present to the audience.  Discover which rich storyline peaked the hosts’ interest this week.
