A Dawson's Creek podcast where Traci Lee and first-time viewer Charles Lam take deep dives into the classic teen soap. Imagine we're just chatting in the cafeteria the next morning after the episode aired. We'll even share our snacks.
Reunion Happy Hour - #DawsonsCreekTaughtMe (ft. friends from the Dawson's Creek Podcast Universe)
Sit back, grab a drink, and join us as we wish a happy 23rd birthday to "Dawson's Creek" with another #DawsonsCreekTaughtMe collaboration episode! Our friends at Dawson's Creeps, Dawson Black, and Creek of the Week share their #DawsonsCreekTaughtMe lessons, and then we chatted with Julia and Erin of Dawson's Critique about their new book, "I Remember Everything: Life Lessons from Dawson's Creek."
Brunch Reunion - Dawson's Creek Comes to Netflix (in the U.S.)
So you want to watch "Dawson's Creek" for the first time but hate spoilers? After 3 years of doing just that, Charles has some advice for you! (The spoiler-filled part of this podcast begins at 17:06, so stop listening there!) We're excited to re-introduce ourselves, as well as to share some updates about what we've been up to. Plus, more on #DawsonsCreekTaughtMe, episodes we're excited to re-watch, and Traci's Leery house in The Sims 4.
Reunion - Four Months Later
You know how after everyone graduates and everyone's back home for the holidays and you meet up at an Applebee's? That's what this episode is, except it's four months later and we're still in the midst of a global pandemic – so why not dust off the old mics and get to chatting? We answer new "Dawson's Creek" questions, complain about "Iron Man 3," argue about cereal, and share some of the things we've been doing/watching/listening to since we "said good night, but not goodbye."
Graduation - Our Series Finale
Three years later ... and our journey has come to an end. We recap "Dawson's Creek," talk about some of our favorite moments and episodes, and go through some of your emails, voicemails, and questions.
We love you and thank you for being part of Dawson's Speak. "We'll see you soon, child."
Bonus Episode - How We're Passing the Time in Isolation
Surprise! We know we said you'd hear from us in 2 weeks for our "graduation" episode, and that's still coming next week... But right now, we wanted to take a few minutes (OK, more like 40 minutes) to talk about ways we're passing the time right now. Our world is in a scary place right now and it's uncharted territory for most of us. Be safe, wash your hands, and enjoy our recommendations for what we're listening to, watching, and reading :)
623 & 624 - All Good Things ...Must Come to an End
We made it to the series finale! And nothing in it was spoiled for Charles!! FIRST: This is not our LAST episode! SECOND: We are so, so, so grateful to everyone who's come on this journey with us as we finally get to jump 5 years ahead and see what our favorite verbose teens-turned-young adults are up to. We know that the world feels a little bleak right now, but hopefully this very long episode can provide a little levity 3
Love this Podcast
Traci and Charles lend a light-hearted but critical eye towards a seminal teen drama, Dawson’s Creek. They don’t take this show to seriously, but relate to and question the show in a way that doesn’t feel forced or performative. I would love to have a conversation with these two about Dawson’s Creek!
Fun but too privileged
Really had fun for a minute but I struggled with the hosts’ privilege and their lack of perspective for characters that don’t match their own upbringing. There are great jokes involved but maybe the hosts don’t have the capacity for talking about some lower income circumstances. Their perspectives of storylines are often really interesting as long as those storylines are not about families or circumstances outside of a middle class norm. In my experience, they hit a lot of great points from their own perspective but not enough points from the queer or poor or addiction adjacent perspectives that I think are readily available and relevant to the show. I expected Dawson’s creek to let me down a bit but I didn’t expect it from y’all.
This has become a one-sided friendship.
I started binging on Netflix in November and I just finished for the first time relatively spoiler free. This podcast is a great way to decompress since NONE of my friends have the slightest bit of interest in watching Dawson’s Creek. So yeah. It kind of feels like I joined Traci and Charles at the lunch table to talk about this show.
