    AMC'S Interview with the Vampire Season 2 Episode 8 Part 2: Meet Me at Our Spot

    AMC'S Interview with the Vampire Season 2 Episode 8 Part 2: Meet Me at Our Spot

    In today’s episode (the second of a two-parter) Joann and Kristina welcome industry veteran and Anne Rice fan, Erica Robert Pallo. Erica joined us on several episodes last season and we couldn't have done this one without her! Her knowledge is deep and her insights are powerful.

    The season finale "And that's the end of it. There's nothing Else" left us breathless as Louis takes revenge for Claudia and Daniel, with the help of the Real Rashid and the Talamasca, uncovers one more, very critical, piece of truth that helps Louis come to a fateful decision -- a decision that has ramifications for Daniel and that brings him back to New Orleans where we finally meet the real Lestat, currently feeding on rats and clinging to an emotional support plank. Their reunion is one for the ages and we are split on what it all means.

    Below are some ways to engage with us and a bit more about Erica.

    @kristinagenx, @vampire_insider, and please email us @ vampireinsider@gmail.com

    Erica tells stories as a writer, media producer, and researcher with a focus on women’s historical writing, film and television, photography, and vampires. Erica is at Harvard University as a library assistant and a master’s student in English looking at 17th-century female playwrights in England. She will soon be launching an interview podcast and blog called The Cinematic Storyteller about people whose work tells cinematic stories through all mediums of art. She also (slowly) writes the FanFic The Vampire Gabrielle on AO3.

    AMC'S Interview with the Vampire Season 2 Episode 7 Recap: Yes You Could Have Prevented It You Lying Liar Who Lies

    AMC'S Interview with the Vampire Season 2 Episode 7 Recap: Yes You Could Have Prevented It You Lying Liar Who Lies

    In today’s episode Joann and Kristina welcome IWTV fan and Jacob Anderson fan page curator Nado (@astronaut_Nado) who is here to help us dissect the events of season 2's penultimate episode: I Could Not Prevent It.

    This is a harrowing episode, one that we've been waiting for from the beginning, and one that has left so many fans heartbroken but in awe of the performances of each of the actors in this remarkable ensemble. Nado's contributions to this conversation were absolutely wonderful and we are so grateful that he agreed to join. We promise you'll want more of his thoughts and we are definitely going to be welcoming him back for a deep dive.

    Below are some ways to engage with us and a bit more about Nado.

    @kristinagenx, @vampire_insider, and please email us @ vampireinsider@gmail.com

    Nado has loved vampire stories ever since he was a little kid. His introduction to the genre was the first Blade film and his interest has only grown since then.  His mom was a fan of Anne Rice’s books and he’d seen bits of the 94 film as well as Queen of the Damned, which, for a long time, was his only reference point for the story.

    Although he’d seen rumblings of the IWTV television adaptation prior to the season one release, it wasn’t until he saw that Jacob Anderson was going to be part of the show that he became excited about it. Vampire stories told from a black or POC perspective are rare, so seeing him play the titular character piqued Nado’s interest. After season 1 episode 3, Nado started reading the books and he has been invested ever since.  He is eager to see how the show will adapt the other books into the show’s storyline. 

    You can find Nado @astronaut_nado on twitter and follow his Jacob Anderson fashion fan page on IG @jacobs_cl0set

    AMC'S Interview with the Vampire Season 2 Episode 6 Recap: Oh Armand

    AMC'S Interview with the Vampire Season 2 Episode 6 Recap: Oh Armand

    In today’s episode its just Joann and Kristina talking Episode 6: Like the Light by which God Made the World Before he Made Light. This is a critical episode, that defines the term slow burn. We get into lots of details and hash over the huge mistake Armand makes at the end of it all, but the reality of this episode is that we spend a huge amount of time talking about Roxane Duran's amazing performance as Madeline and also discuss the narrative choice to make her character's background enmeshed with a German soldier during the occupation of Paris.

    Below are some links to follow on Twitter (you may call it X).  Thanks for coming to listen to us each week and welcome to those of you who are new to the series and new to the podcast.

    AMC'S Interview with the Vampire Season 2 Episode 5 Recap: Actually THIS is the Best Episode Yet

    AMC'S Interview with the Vampire Season 2 Episode 5 Recap: Actually THIS is the Best Episode Yet

    We appreciate your continued patience in posting delays, we will be back on track next week. West Coast work travel meant a delay in editing.


    In today’s episode Joann and Kristina welcome content creator and vampire superfan Black Girl Talk Fangs as we recap and react to S2E5 of Interview with the Vampire: Don't be Afraid, Just Start the Tape. We discuss the relationships between the triangle of Armand, Louis and Daniel in 1973 San Francisco and how the things uncovered about the first interview inform the way the three will interact in Dubai going forward.

    Our structure remains the same as last season but we’ve enhanced the “standout” segment and have added a new segment that tracks the progress of “Dreamstat” the Lestat projection who Louis carries with him, to Claudia’s consternation.  Below are some links to follow on Twitter (you may call it X).  Thanks for coming to listen to us each week and welcome to those of you who are new to the series and new to the podcast. 



    About Black Girl Talk Fangs:


    BGTF became an IWTV Superfan after watching the pilot episode in October 2022! She fell completely in love with Jacob and Sam's performances as Louis and Sam, New Orleans production, 1910s/1920s costumes shout out Carol Cutshall, and of course Daniel Hart's beautifully orchestrated musical scores. She was not an Anne Rice fan, and did not discover the show through reading The Vampire Chronicles growing up, but was familiar with the 1994 film with Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, and Kirsten Dunst.

    She has always loved shows about vampires since age 11 watching "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and later "True Blood". Since finding the show, she has read IWTV book, The Vampire Lestat, Queen of the Damned, Tale of the Body Thief, and The Vampire Armand, she made a decision to get involved with AMC IWTV fandom after noticing that the show had little to no marketing behind it in 2022. So in November 2022, she created Black Girl Talk Fangs or BGTF on Instagram and other platforms to connect with fellow fans, and have been doing that ever since.

    IWTV fans sometimes ask how she came up with the BGTF name and her answer is: "I am a black girl who talks about vampires". BGTF, is a space for her to fangirl over the creative talents in front of the screen and behind it without spamming friends and family in private accounts. Follow BGTF on Instagram (@blackgirltalkfangs) and Discord where she takes deep dives into IWTV Season Two episodes and occasionally host rewatch parties.

pinacoloda ,

Awesome!

I just found this podcast and absolutely love it!! I’m a podcast junkie and this one is really excellent! I haven’t read the Interview with the Vampire novels, and as the show is very layered- I love hearing the recaps and your insight! Keep up the great work. This is now one of my favorite shows & podcasts; thank you!

Scarletminded ,

Sorry to hear Marc passed…but please fix the audio

Glad you are keeping this going in his honor. I will keep listening. I thought the Lost Boys thing was more French New Wave like the movie Breathless. It had more of that feel to me. The vampires on the large statue reminds me of Wings of Desire. The audio was all over the place…quiet than ear piercingly loud. :/ I was constantly adjusting it or if you are excited, step back from the mic a bit,

The Best!

This is my favorite all around vampire podcast - engaging hosts, passionate commentary, pure joy! RIP Mark 😔.
