Episode Date
6.04: Flooded
5726
As the saying goes, you should really fix that small leak before all your pipes burst and you're suddenly standing knee-deep in water, playing kitten poker, and using a copper pipe to kill a bank demon — all while three ridiculous white men try to take over your town using their complete lack of wit and a moderate heaping of whimsy. It's Season Goddamn 6 Episode Goddamn 4: Flooded. PAY THE FUCKING SLAYER. WHAT THE FUCK. +++ LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT  We acknowledge that we and our team are occupying unceded and stolen lands and territories.  Kristin occupies the Lenape territories of the Esopus Lenape Peoples. Jenny occupies the Wabanahkik territory of the Abenaki and Pennacook Peoples. Alba occupies Tiohtià:ke of the Kanien’kehá:ka Nation. Mack, LaToya, and John Mark occupy the lands of the Kizh Peoples. Land acknowledgements exist to celebrate the indigenous peoples who are the rightful guardians of the land or territory that we as colonizers are inhabiting. A Land acknowledgement also encourages non-indigenous people to recognize that they are on stolen and unceded indigenous land and to directly engage with that knowledge in meaningful and impactful ways.  Learn more on land acknowledgements here: LAND REPARATIONS & INDIGENOUS SOLIDARITY TOOLKIT Learn what Indigenous Lands You Occupy 'I regret it': Hayden King on writing Ryerson University's territorial acknowledgement CELEBRATION + SPOTLIGHT ON INDIGENOUS WORK AND PEOPLES Listen to Metis In Space: http://www.metisinspace.com/ Educational + Activist Accounts  @decolonizemyself @decolonizethisplace @Indigenouspeoplesmovement @indigenousrising @lilnativeboy @wetsuweten_checkpoint Artists  @melaw_nakehko @notoriouscree @project562 @strikingstick #terigreeves @wendyredstar Authors David Treuer @jakeskeets Joy Harjo @kalimaja @shondabuchanan @tiffanymidge Businesses @ataumbimetals @byellowtail @cheekbonebeauty @eighthgeneration @shenative @tpmocs @trickstercompany +++ LOCATE YOUR HOSTS UPON THE INTERNET Jenny Owen Youngs: @jennyowenyoungs; jennyowenyoungs.com Kristin Russo: @kristinnoeline; kristinnoeline.com Buffering the Vampire Slayer: @bufferingcast on twitter, facebook, and instagram Learn more about our team at bufferingthevampireslayer.com/our-team SPECIAL GUEST Gaby Dunn: @gabyroad; gabydunn.com/ +++ Our Anti-Racism Library: https://www.bufferingthevampireslayer.com/antiracist-library Our episode on Pangs: https://radiopublic.com/buffering-the-vampire-slayer-a-b-6nN5z1/s1!0cce2 +++ Produced by: Alba Daza, Kristin Russo, and Jenny Owen Youngs Edited by: John Mark Nelson & Kristin Russo +++ JOIN OUR PATREON FAMILY!!

Angel On Top — 3x03 That Old Gang Of Mine
3275
So... Remember how Gunn decided to simply ignore all of his problems at home during the Pylea arc at the end of Angel Season 2? Well, those problems have popped right back up, and well, Gunn continues to handle them poorly. Really poorly. Almost as if there was a lack of interest in even telling the story of Gunn's problems at all. That's right: It's "That Old Gang of Mine" time, and as it turns out, Angel the series has *not* gotten better at tackling human race relations. Join LaToya Ferguson as she and guest host Mack MacDade get to the bottom of why this episode doesn't work, how it actually could have worked, and Angel's (mmm, Angel) casual leather pants. (Look, it's not all about heavy issues. Sometimes it's just about Angel in leather pants.) LOCATE YOUR HOST, LATOYA FERGUSON, UPON THE INTERNET!

Angel On Top — 3x02 That Vision Thing
3053
Don't know if you've heard, but Cordelia's visions from TPTB are *literally* killing her. So keeping that in mind, "That Vision Thing" finds a way to make that whole dilemma even worse -- and it's all Kal Penn's fault! (Though it is nice when Fred compares Cordelia to a dog and when Angel... compares Cordelia to a car. Look, you've gotta take the small victories sometimes.) Join LaToya Ferguson as she continues to embark on this journey as Angel on Top's new-and-nervous host, this week with the help of guest host Connor Goldsmith, possibly the only person who can challenge LaToya in terms of Angel nerd cred.

Jen is also the author of Dying in Full Detail which can be accessed for free here. Mackenzie MacDade is a 31 year old, queer woman of color, teaching artist, feminist, part time poet and general rabble rouser. She got her start in feminism from a book of feminist nursery rhymes, and her start in pop culture analysis from 9 years of homeschooling (translation: 9 years of TV and movie watching). A firm believer in queering the collective consciousness, she strives to inspire people to redesign their idea of normal and step out their comfort zone. She takes inspiration from Gertrude Stein, Buffy, Angela Davis, Faith and bell hooks. Someone once described her as “The love child of Angela Davis and Ru-Paul” and she thinks that just about sums it up. LaToya Ferguson is our new host for Season 3's Angel On Top HELL YEAH!

0.28: LaToya Ferguson, Alanna Bennett, & Ira Madison III on Race in the Buffy & Angelverse
5106
The absolutely brilliant LaToya Ferguson, Alanna Bennett, and Ira Madison III host today's conversation on race within the Buffy and Angelverse! This is the first in a larger series that will be produced and hosted by BIPOC Buffy fans here on the Buffering the Vampire Slayer and WOW — what a way to begin. These three TV geniuses bring their encyclopedic knowledge of both series to the table with questions like: What would have happened if Leonard Roberts played Riley? Why in the hell was Drusilla able to kill Kendra — an immensely powerful Slayer — with one filed f*cking fingernail? How would it have impacted the arc of the show if Bianca Lawson had been cast as Cordelia? This. Episode. Fucking. Rules. Today’s conversation was curated, produced, and edited by LaToya Ferguson. You can follow LaToya at @lafergs on Twitter and you should also *immediately* tune into her podcast about The Vampire Diaries (YEAH THAT’S RIGHT) called The AMPire Diaries over at theampirediariespod.com Alanna Bennett is a culture writer and screenwriter who you can follow over at @AlannaBennett on Twitter and Instagram! Currently Alanna is writing for The CW’s Roswell, New Mexico Ira Madison III would love if you’d just please leave him alone (he’s busy!), but if you INSIST he can be found at @ira on Twitter, @irathethird on Instagram; he also was a writer on Netflix’s Daybreak and is currently writing on Netflix’s forthcoming Q-Force -- Massive thanks to Mackenzie MacDade and Alba Daza who are working with us as consultants and facilitators! Here’s more on their work: Mackenzie MacDadeis a 31 year old, queer woman of color, teaching artist, feminist, part time poet and general rabble rouser. She got her start in feminism from a book of feminist nursery rhymes, and her start in pop culture analysis from 9 years of homeschooling (translation: 9 years of TV and movie watching). A firm believer in queering the collective consciousness, she strives to inspire people to redesign their idea of normal and step out their comfort zone. She takes inspiration from Gertrude Stein, Buffy, Angela Davis, Faith and bell hooks. Someone once described her as “The love child of Angela Davis and Ru-Paul” and she thinks that just about sums it up. Alba Daza is a 27-year-old emerging Latinx writer/director/podcaster based in Montreal, Canada.  At 13 years old she discovered (through Buffy) that she wanted to be a screenwriter and hasn’t let go of that dream since. Her stories focus on telling and celebrating the stories of marginalized voices, giving them space to breathe and thrive. Through her work, she plans to decolonize pop culture and Slay white supremacy, just like Buffy taught her. Check out her podcast, “My Mama So…” which centers around appreciating the greatness of motherly figures: bit.ly/mymamaso -- You can learn more about this new series and our other initiatives here at Buffering the Vampire Slayer at bufferingthevampireslayer.com/justkeepfighting Logo by Kristine Thune See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Today we are moving from the shock of losing Joyce and along to the many paths of grief: some leave flowers, others listen to music that reminds them of different days, some hold their old, broody loves close. Then of course there are those who break Wiccan oaths, visit men in a bathrobes with a tail, steal eggs from totally innocent Ghora demons, and attempt to raise the deceased using forbidden magic. Standard Sunnydale stuff. PHEWF. It is Season 5 Episode 17: Forever. We love and miss you, Joyce.

A queller demon on the ceiling! A queller demon in a tree! A queller demon under your car! A queller demon with many teeth!!

5.08: Shadow
5057
There's a snake! There's a snake! There's a great big snake!! With... arms?!?! WHATEVER. Glory, who now has a name and some new shoes, puts a cobra in a vase and kablam makes a giant snake who sniffs and sniffs until he finds THE KEY (it's Dawn, but nobody tell Glory)!! Luckily Big-Slayer-Sister Buffy rides on the back of the snake like Khaleesi on her dragons and kills it before it can reveal the truth to Glorificus. Meanwhile, Joyce is diagnosed with a brain tumor, and we do not want to talk about it because it is sad. It is S5E8: Shadow! LOOK OUT FOR THE SNAKE!
