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

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.

You know that feeling when you used to date an undead guy with a soul but then he left town, and then you dated an alive guy who loved basketballs but then he also left town, so you've just been *trying* to mind your own business while you process your sister being a mystical key and fight off a god who wears silk and heels... but then ANOTHER undead guy, this time one with peroxide hair and a chip in his head, develops a massive crush on you?! Life can sure be the pits sometimes! We are here this week with S5E14: Crush so before you go and put up your protective wards, let's let a little Spike in, shall we?

2797

Last week we put out a call on social media to hear what you all were doing to help our communities during this scary and overwhelming time. We were so overwhelmed with your beautiful responses that we decided to read a selection of them here! One of the biggest gifts that Buffy continues to give us is community, and our Buffering community is something that we are thankful for each and every day. We will be back next week with our regularly scheduled programming (with S5E14: Crush ahhhhh!), but for now if you'd like a bit of light in the form of your fellow scoobies being the gosh darn best, here you go.

Stay safe and, if all else fails, try speaking Latin.

5.12: Checkpoint

The brilliant Ira Madison III returns to guest on his *very favorite episode* of the series and we get down and dirty with the patriarchal bullshit that is (and has always been) THE F*CKING COUNCIL.

MWAHAHAHAHA yes indeed it is S5E12: Checkpoint, and we couldn't think of a better time than right damn now to tell Quentin and his Quentets to suuuuuuuck itttttttt!

0.21: Interview with Marc Blucas
4707

Marc Blucas!!! Measures his hand size!!! Against Jenny's?!!! WHAT IS LIFE EVEN?! In addition to hand size comparison, we dig into topics like: how it felt to be surrounded by tin foil at The Initiative, whether or not Forrest had a crush on Riley, what that goddamn sexy boot removal was all about, and of course the ahem many varied and colorful opinions on our resident butterscotchian boyfriend. In the words of Jenny... WOW.

5.10: Into the Woods
6044

Helicopter blades are whirring over the sound of our tears as Buffy comes face to face with her fear of needing some monster in her men, all while our cardboard prince heads deep into the unknown woods. Jenny also examines height differentials and thinks about how that might affect the use of the Buffy box. You're welcome. It's S5E10: Into the Woods.

5443

A queller demon on the ceiling! A queller demon in a tree! A queller demon under your car! A queller demon with many teeth!! While we *hate* this extraterrestrial bug more than most things in this life, we’d still rather look at its horrible mouth than think about Joyce going into surgery. Sigh. It’s S5E9: Looking at Fear, and we must look at it even though we don’t wanna.

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!

Live from San Francisco's Brava Theater!! Spike has always been bad, baby... but this week we learn that, at first, he was only bad at poetry. We are taking a deep dive into our favorite peroxide-doused vampire and are joined by the effulgent Kate Leth & Joanna Robinson to discuss impeccable cheekbones, bad accents, snapping subway poles in half, and what to do when your finger *oops* gets covered in the blood of a slayer?! WOW. Buckle up and and get ready for a live barrel-jump by Jenny Owen Youngs, because it's S5E7: Fool For Love!

Kate Leth guests and Tara's family makes a surprise visit to Sunnydale with a whole carload of patriarchal bullsh*t in tow (and also Amy Adams). Never fear! The scoobies do what scoobies do best in response: they punch Tara in the nose and promptly welcome her into their chosen family. Oh, and we spend no less than a half hour on a new, one-time segment with Kate called "Cornography." It's S5E5: Family, and you're all welcome.

Spike is out for a walk bitch and Giles is in his most resplendent wizarding attire, Anya gets a job and Ben still looks great in scrubs. Oh, and although we still don't know what's in that Magic Eye poster... we now know that DAWN IS THE FREAKING KEY. It's S5E5: No Place Like Home!

4784

Riley's heart beats 150 times per minute but he still can't find love and no one cares except for Jenny! JUST KIDDING. Buffy also cares. Joyce faints in the kitchen, Harmony smokes Morley Slims and cannot keep an arrow in a crossbow, and most importantly SPIKE LOVES DAWSON'S CREEK. It's Season 5 Episode 4: Out of My Mind.

5214

Two Xanders, no waiting! Our favorite day-glo demon Toth is in town to kill the Slayer but, whoops!, his neon beam misses Buffy and instead splits Xander into two. While Anya contemplates the many things she can do in this kind of glorious double-boyfriend threesome, the scooby gang work on putting Xander back together again. Oh, and by the way? Spike made a Buffy mannequin! Whatever! It's Season 5 Episode 3: The Replacement!

2447

Mercedes McNab sat down to talk with Kristin about her role as our favorite Cordette-turned-vampire, Harmony! We talk about her audition, that epic fight scene with Xander, and the many takes it took to say Blondie Bear for the first time — and we also put out a call for anyone who knows who got Harmony's fangs from the set of Buffy?!?! So Mercedes, at last, we meet!
