By Mark Hastings

In this episode Mark talks about one of favourite TV series, adapted from one of his favourite books by one of his favourite authors, Neil Gaiman: "American Gods". Mark talks about the premise of both the novel "American Gods" and the first two seasons of the television adaptation - which revolves around a war that is by incited between the "Old Gods" of mythology and the "New Gods" of technology and globalisation. The "American Gods" TV series is executively produced by Neil Gaiman and it can be seen on both the Starz cable channel in the US and on Amazon Prime world-wide. In this episode Mark talks about the characters and the Gods that populate the story - who in some cases are both the protagonists and the antagonists of the overriding story of both "American Gods" the TV series as well as the novel of the same name - and he explains who the characters are, what motivates them, and what influences their actions. The series stars Ricky Whittle as Shadow Moon, Ian McShane as Mr. Wednesday, as well as a cast of other phenomenonal actors who play some memorable, compelling, and out of this world characters - such of gods, goddesses, jinn, a leprechaun, a dead wife, and other modern personifications of legendary mythological beings. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/markthepoet/message
