This week the gang gets round two of those pesky love spells. Unfortunately, this time we've got bazookas, slut-shaming, and sacrificial letterman jackets. We frankly aren't sure where we are, and we question if we're even on this mortal plane. Thanks for listening!

It's season 7 episode 5, and Anyanka is having a bit of a crisis with her work/life balance. She is still doing her job, but that job is murder...violent mass murder...with giant spiders. The Slayer can't let that kinda thing go down in her city, but Anya is an old friend. So, what's a hero to do? Thanks for listening!

Season 7 episode 4 is out! Buffy and the gang are scrambling to save the life of a mysterious teen who seems fated to death. But, no amount of cutting edge technology or true crime style investigation seems to help. Thanks for listening!

Sep 25, 2019

Season 7 episode 3 is here, folks! Willow is finally back in Sunnydale, ready to make up for lost time with the gang. But, where are they? The gang is prepared and ready to welcome Willow back with open arms. But, where is she? We have a bit of a mystery on our hands, luckily, Detective Dawn is on the case! Thanks for listening.

Two episodes into season 7, and some plots are already starting to thicken. Turns out Spike might have taken a page out of the Angel playbook and got his soul back? What, if anything, does that change? Maybe Willow will have some thoughts when she finally boards that plane home. Thanks for listening!

It's season 7, folks! We are in the final stretch and it feels so bitter-sweet. Like a blast from the past, Sunnydale high school is back in our lives. But, as I'm sure is a surprise to nobody, the school's construction doesn't even finish before the paranormal infestation starts. And no, I don't mean Spike's "cool" haircut. Let's see how Joss and friends steer this ship to shore. Thanks for listening!

Movie break time, y'all! The gang needed a light-hearted escape from the world of Buffy, so, this week we sat down to dissect The Final Girls. Or was it Camp Bloodbath? Or was it.... Camp Murder Party? The title doesn't matter, what does matter is that characters are sucked into a horror film and subsequently killed by a Jason Vorhees wannabe. Oh, it's a comedy. Thanks for listening!

We’re rounding the bend as Season 6 comes to a close. We finally get to discuss predicted story lines, the rise and fall of Willow, and the two obvious best things to come out of this season. Once More With Feeling and Clem! Big thanks for all the questions sent in. Thanks for listening!

Aug 15, 2019

Finale! And with this episode, season 6 is done. Darth Willow is still out there tearing up Sunnydale worse than Warren's skin. Can Giles even do anything to help out here? Did he even live through the episode?! Our questions are answered...just not all of them. Thanks for listening!

Aug 7, 2019

It's season 6 episode 21, and Darth Willow is still doing the villain thing. But, everyone is having their dirty laundry hung out to dry at this point. Willow is just the most proactive about it all. If only Giles were around to help... *cough cough*. Thanks for listening!

Aug 1, 2019

Welcome to episode 20 of season 6! In dealing with our recent spat of violence Willow has turned over a new leaf. That leaf just happens to be dark, brooding, and full of powerful magic. Not great news for that Warren character, huh? Thanks for listening!

Jul 24, 2019

Season 6 episode 19 is another one of those "not super fun" episodes in an otherwise light-hearted show. Not much you can do to lighten up sexual assault, gun violence, or addiction. But it's happening and we need to talk about it. Thanks for listening!

Jul 18, 2019

It's episode 18 of season 6 and this one is also not GREAT for Xander. Though, to his credit, everything is starting to get emotionally charged around here. Not a single relationship is left untouched by the drama of Sunnydale. Thanks for listening!

Jul 10, 2019

This week, Xander is back from his "spirit quest" and ready to rock the emotional boat more than he already has. But, according to Buffy's visions, we aren't even real. This podcast has no reason to exist. So, maybe nothing matters? Thanks for listening!

Jul 4, 2019

Season 6 episode 16 is here, folks! For a good while there Xander was one of the more well adjusted characters in this show. He had a loving fiance, a great job, and he didn't trust men with orbs. But, that all went topsy turvy this week and we went from one pending wedding, to zero. Thanks for listening!

Jun 26, 2019

Welcome to episode 15 of season 6, the season of lies and half truths! Finally, after months of speculation and baseless accusation, a great truth is revealed. Also, Taad is back for a second shot at making a good first impression. It....kind of works? Thanks for listening!

Jun 19, 2019

Howdy! Welcome to season 6 episode 14, where we start to really explore the magical wonderland that is "teen angst". It's also Buffy's birthday epsiode, so, you know nothing good can really happen. Her party wasn't exactly a banger but for some reason nobody wants to leave...is Monopoly THAT fun? Or, is it something else? Thanks for listening!

Jun 12, 2019

While Collin is off globetrotting the rest of hosts make their way to Fargo to watch three completely different movies hidden within this Coen Brothers classic. Don’t ya know.

Jun 5, 2019

This week the gang wrestles with a possible murder, but this time it's Buffy who might be the perpetrator. Follow us down this rabbit hole of time skip weirdness, Tweedledee, Tweedledum, and Jonathan.

May 30, 2019

This week Buffy has her greatest challenge yet...working in fast food. But is everything as it seems? Are the burgers made of people?? Listen to find out!

May 23, 2019

Season 6 Episode 11 gives us a little bit of a breather...if you consider threats from social services, accusations of relapse, and slowly disappearing from this earth light. At this point we're taking what we can get. Thanks for listening!

May 8, 2019

Season 6 episode 10 is a hoot and a holler... We have already seen Willow struggle with her magical addiction (which is literal not figurative), but, it's time to explore rock bottom. Our enabler, Amy, takes us to meet her creepy connect and things just spiral so...so quickly. Thanks for listening!

May 1, 2019

Hey there Amy! Welcome to season 6 episode 9, it's good to see you again. Sorry about the whole "forgetting you were a rat which we definitely could have helped with" thing for a few seasons there. That's our bad. But, you are here now and that's what matters. You haven't missed much, things have been pretty quiet. A god here, a cyber-demon there, college. Normal stuff. Thanks for listening!

Apr 24, 2019

Season 6 episode 8! And now...for something a little different! This episode is on the longer side, but, there are also going to be 8 people talking into your ears. I'm not going to spoil Producer James's surprise but I will throw out a huge thank you to; Producer Meghan, Emily, Nicholas, and Jason! "What is happening here?!" you might be asking. Well, we hope you enjoy the listen!

Apr 17, 2019

Season 6 episode 7! Something tells me that you hardcore Buffy fans out there have been waiting for this one (jazz hands!). It's the musical episode and it was just as whimsical and emotionally destructive as one can expect from a special episode with a unique premise. Sweets, a lover of theater first and a demon second, has cursed(?) the Scooby Gang, making us belt out our deepest feelings and secrets through the majesty of song. Luckily, we are a close group of old friends with no secrets at all, right? Thanks for listening and for singing along!
