In this week’s episode, TJ and Dave talk about seeing Radiotopia Live–we both loved Phoebe Judge’s performance in the Criminal podcast. Then, we review this week’s episode of American Gods (Head Full of Snow). We both liked the Anubis and djinn digressions, but the Shadow Moon story still felt a little slow.
Finally, the SciFi Dustup of the Day was the pronouncement of the Arthur C. Clarke Award shadow jury that the award is sliding too far into commercial writing. We wonder if commercial success or sophistication needs to be factored into awarding quality literature at all.
