    S4E12: ”A New Man” (feat. Kendare Blake)

    S4E12: ”A New Man” (feat. Kendare Blake)

    Special guest Kendare Blake, author of In Every Generation, joins Steph and Kara to recap this Giles-centric episode.

     

    Buffy introduces the new man in her life—Riley—to her old man, Giles, but she leaves out the part where Riley is a commando and Professor Walsh is his mom—er, commanding officer. Leave it up to Xander to spoil that for Giles, who then lets his guard down around Ethan Rayne and is turned into a demon for his troubles. Determined to get out of this pickle without asking for Buffy, Giles turns to the one person he can count on … Spike.

     

    Hear us discuss…

    Who is worse at keeping secrets: Riley or Xander?
    Prepare for … Giles slander? Steph is as surprised as you.
    Poor Giles’s house. Again.
    Spike back on his evil b******t? Yes, please!
    Riley can barely take Ethan Rayne yet he thinks he can take Buffy?

    S4E11: ”Doomed”

    S4E11: ”Doomed”

    Well, Riley and Buffy’s respective secrets are out. Before either of them can process this information, they experience an earthquake that Buffy sees as an apocalyptic portent. Giles, mellow unemployed bachelor that he is, disagrees. But when isn’t it a sign of the apocalypse? If the Scoobies—and a Hawaiian-shirt-wearing Spike—are going to save the world, they have to return to the most terrifying place on Earth: high school.

    S4E10: ”Hush”

    S4E10: ”Hush”

    Can you hear that? No? Exactly. Silence descends upon Sunnydale, coinciding with the arrival of the tall, dark, and creepy Gentlemen. What do they want? Giles doesn’t know, can only circle their name on a sheet of paper. They’ve stolen everyone’s voice, and if Buffy’s prophecy dream is correct, only she can stop them. Remember: fortune favours the brave.

    S4E9: ”Something Blue”

    Feeling sadder than she ever has in her life, Willow resorts to magic to cure her blues. But her attempt to take away her pain has side effects for all her pals (and Spike). Church bells ring, demons circle, and Giles has to decide what’s worse: losing his sight, or regaining it only to see Buffy and Spike take their vows. Soon, a spell gone wrong might be the least of Willow’s worries.

    Angel S1E8: ”I Will Remember You”

    Angel S1E8: ”I Will Remember You”

    No, you are not hallucinating. We take a special road trip to LA, where Buffy is determined to confront Angel about his stalker-like yet heroic behaviour in “Pangs.” Of course, things don’t go as planned. When Angel suddenly becomes human again—mortal, vulnerable, but very much alive—he and Buffy have decisions to make. What does this mean for his hero’s journey? And can the broodiest vampire on Earth still brood, still be with Buffy, if he is just a mortal man?

    S4E8: ”Pangs”

    It’s the most wonderful time of the year: Thanksgiving! With her mom away, Buffy resolves to host her own, traditional gathering at Giles’s house, complete with real whipped cream. But an unexpected guest and the stereotypically angry spirit of a Chumash warrior both crash the party. Giles and Willow need to stop bickering about colonialism long enough to face these threats, and Buffy gets a little help from a friend.

Lots of fun!!

Kara and Steph are lots of fun and are a treat to listen to. My favourite element is the contrast between ace/aro Kara and the thirsty AF Steph. Such a funny dynamic!! I also love Steph’s ongoing observation of all of the asian vampires. These ladies also do a good job of calling out the problematic elements, even things that I never noticed before. I’m almost fully caught up, and it’s going to be rough having to listen at their schedule instead of bingeing at my pace!

i found this on tiktok and i’ve never listened to a podcast before this one, and now i’m hooked and need to find more podcasts! i’ve loved buffy since i was shown it when i was like 8 or 9 o think. i didn’t understand it then but still got addicted and i’ve re watched this show probably 7 times now and im so happy i can re watch with someone because nobody i know likes this show and they will never watch it with me. so i love this and i love u ladies, ur podcast has really helped to clear my mind of all my personal thoughts and shoot me into the buffyverse so THANK UUUUUUU🧡 ~from a fellow ontarian

Buffy in a New Way!

So I just binged the whole first season of this podcast in a week and it is amazing!! I am loving getting to experience Buffy in a fantastic new way! Although I don’t know how Steph doesn’t remember so much of season 1, cause it is BURNED into my brain, cause I’ve seen it way to many times haha!

But in all seriousness Kara and Steph do a wonderful job analysing the characters (especially Zander and Cordelia), the writing and Joss Whedon himself! I cannot wait to hear the rest and season 2!!
