    Wondery Presents - The Rewatcher: Buffy The Vampire Slayer

    Wondery Presents - The Rewatcher: Buffy The Vampire Slayer

    Welcome to the Hellmouth Weirdos! Your favorite Morbid hosts Ash and Alaina are branching out from true crime and heading to Sunnydale for the ultimate Buffy the Vampire Slayer Rewatch podcast! Alaina is a Buffy superfan and Ash has never watched a single episode, so whether you’re Team Angel, Team Spike, or have no clue who those people are…they’ve got you covered! Join them each week as they slay their way through the series, episode by episode, re-watching, and watching for the very first time. They’ll break down Buffy and her friends adventures through weekly recaps, categories, and awards while Ash takes some (wooden stake) stabs at predicting what she thinks will happen next. They'll also welcome the occasional Buffy cast member, guest star, or celebrity superfan to join in the slaying.

In my Top Three

I work in a woodshop and listen to podcasts six to eight hours a day; mostly true crime, and Generation Why is definitely in my top three.
Aaron has a very fact-based approach and Justin brings a very human reaction side, giving a real balance and a great partnership.
It’s always a good day when a new episode drops!

Generation Why

Just listened for the first time. I will not be following this show. I have been listening to podcasts for over 10 years. The repetitive nature of the hosts are unbelievable and annoying. They must think the listeners don’t get it the first time. They continue to repeat, the story over and over again repeating the same thing. I had to finally shut it off. I couldn’t take it anymore.

This has been a must listen since almost the beginning. They keep it fresh and always manage to tell a great story.
