    There's Freezing Down in Texas

    We're not sure if you've heard, but two weeks ago was pretty wild down here. We made it through unscathed, but we can't say the same for our School Hard episode, and the many families down here who are still dealing with the aftermath.

love love love

Melissa’s 90s pop culture knowledge and love of behind the scenes facts, combined with Aditi’s love of all things Angel and slander of Xander’s questionable fashion choices makes for such a fun podcast. I’m obsessed with this duo and this pod. Such a fun way to rewatch and relive Buffy!!

Came for Buffy, stayed for the jokes

I listen to this pod in the car, while I cook, while I work... this podcast’s insider look at the Buffyverse filtered through the whip smart jokes of two besties (one a veteran and one a neophyte) are honestly even better than the show itself. I feel like Aditi and Melissa are my real friends through lonely quarantine life! Can’t wait to see them react to the ups and downs of later seasons.

In Love. Zander’s my boy.

This Buffy podcast is such a good listen. I love how much fun it sounds like they are having. It’s contagious. Thank you so much for making such a fun podcast to listen to.
