Great in-depth analysis of each episode. Special attention is given to social justice issues, but also just funny and sometimes very touching. The original inspired-by songs each episode are also great.

Episode Date
4.14 Goodbye Iowa
01:41:26

Riley is very sweaty, but don't worry Buffy has a bandana for his itchy hand! Willow isn't only going over to Tara's for magic, SILLY!! Adam is so technologically advanced that he can put more than one floppy disk into his chest cavity while saying WHAT AM I like a confused baby frankenbird!!! We are careening into the middle of this season, scoobies, and today we've got S4E14: Goodbye Iowa, for you.

4.13: The I In Team
01:24:30

Don't you just love when your psych professor turns out to be the head of a monster initiative that created a Frankenstein-like thing named Adam who eats floppy disks and has metal shinguards?! Don't you love it even more when she sets up creepy cameras to watch you and your new boyfriend have sex (he's gonna take off your boot!) and then tries to murder you?!?! Yes, friends, it is S4E13: The I In Team. Don't say we didn't warn you.

Ethan Rayne is back in town and so, of course, is Kate Leth! We talk oh-so-much about the sexual tension between our two favorite mystics, listen to Jenny attempt to tell a story about having sex in college, witness some DEFLOWERING between our witches, and give special attention to Giles putting a feather duster between his teeth. Oh, *and* we have a Giles jingle for you. Welcome to S4E12: A New Man!

In Sunnydale this week, Spike shrinks all of his clothing, we confirm that Buffy is a Capricorn on the cusp of Aquarius, and Kristin and Jenny THROW DOWN on their differing opinions of Riley Finn. Also, Forest is still in love with Riley, Willow makes a great joke about 19th Century Literature, and Percy is A JERK! We are here a day early to tell you to go and VOTE today in the midterm elections, and to discuss S4E11: Doomed!!

A1.08: I Will Remember You
01:31:03

A crossover for the ages brings Buffy into the Angelverse to show us all how beautiful love can be before then ripping our hearts our of our chests. Yes, that's right, we are barreling forward through tales of peanut butter in bed, dishes flying off tables in the throes of passion, demons with troll-doll jewels for eyes, oracle twins, Doyle taking Angel's pulse, Cordelia's midriff, and the temporal fold to kill us all. Buckle up, kids... it's Angel Season 1Episode 8: I Will Remember You.

4.08: Pangs
01:42:06

It's Thanksgiving in Sunnydale, and much is happening: Detective Angel's lurking in the bushes, Anya is *so Anya*, and Spike is tied to a chair! It's not all fun & games though - there's a whole lot of white guilt, colonialism, and troubled history to examine in this holiday episode. We're thankful to welcome Coya White Hat-Artichoker, an enrolled member of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe, a writer, poet and speaker on issues regarding race, equity, Two-Spirit identity and sovereignty, onto the podcast to share her thoughts about the episode as well. Today we're discussing S4E8: Pangs.

4.07: The Initiative
01:27:37

RILEY LIKES BUFFY and he's part of a secret monster-catching arm of the government, conveniently headquartered underneath his campus housing! ALSO Spike is in peril, Buffy is bad at fro-yo, Harmony has a unicorn poster, Giles & Xander desperately want to be useful, and Willow still believes in love (perhaps begrudgingly, perhaps only for other people, but still). Today we're discussing S4E7: The Initiative.

4.05: Beer Bad
01:50:59

LIVE FROM NEW YORK, IT’S S4E5: Beer Bad!!! 

There comes a time in the lives of two podcasters when they must stare destiny in the face and say, “We alone wield the strength and skill to discuss what is widely regarded as the worst episode of Buffy. YES, world, we shall now talk about Beer Bad.” Thankfully we were joined by Heather Hogan, Louis Peitzman, and Kathy Tu for this episode, and we taped in front of a live audience of 250 Scoobies in Brooklyn at Littlefield! Get ready for very bad CroMagnon hair and FOAMY, FOAMY BEER!

0.13: Interview with Harry Groener!!
01:01:04

WOW, Kristin got the chance to sit down and chat with the mayor of Sunnydale himself, Harry Groener!! We couldn't think of a better way to close out season 3 than to share this fantastic conversation with all of you. You'll hear them dig into Richard Wilkins III's complicated relationship with Faith, discuss how a mayor ascending is similar to Bruce Banner hulking out, and you'll also be delighted (or perhaps terrified) to find that Harry and the mayor have the same laugh... though in this context, it's considerably less ominous. Today we're saying a fond farewell to Season Faith, with this very special Episode Mayor!
