The eX-Files: 2.13 Irresistible | An X-Files Podcast

Is it our favorite episode? No. Does it inspire us to compare Dana Scully to Tony Soprano? Yes. Please also join us for Jenny's telling of a scary story about a woman with no face (not to be confused with a woman with two pennies), and Kristin's guess on what MUFON stands for.

This week on The X-Files, Aubrey is a town not a person, John Locke is using the pseudonym “Brian” to be a real dickbag around town, Mulder debates nurture vs nature using the hard-to-argue-with cronch of a sunflower seed, we learn that even women named BJ can be treated poorly, and we witness a stunningly accurate doodle of the Trylon and Perisphere.

The eX-Files: A Death Row Conversation with Sophie Day | An X-Files Podcast

Our incredible listener, Sophie Day, emailed us awhile back about this week's episode of The X-Files, "Beyond the Sea," and the character of Luther Lee Boggs. Sophie explained that she works as a Capital Mitigation Specialist, which means that she is part of the legal team that represents folks who have already been sentenced to death on their last appeals. She explained, "basically it's my job to tell my client's story. I spend countless hours with my clients, their family, and anyone I can find who knew them before the crime they are convicted of. It is my job to help decision makers (a judge, SCOTUS, or the Governor) see my client as a full person. We do not seek to excuse the crime, but to help the person/people deciding if they should live or die how my clients' lives could have brought them to where they are. My primary goal is to reflect my client's humanity and dignity outward." We were so excited to bring Sophie into the pod-space for a deeper conversation, and in this bonus episode you will hear her discuss the way that folks in prison, and especially on death row, are portrayed in television and movies — and in this episode in particular!

In '96, Van is alive (again!), Laura Lee is going to get help by flying the Hail Mary Full Of Heroin Plane (oh no), Coach Ben is gay (hot), Travis is being a dingus (sigh).

Buffering: A Rewatch Adventure | Trailer

Welcome to Buffering: A Rewatch Adventure! While our trek through Buffy has come to a close, our podcasty love affair with iconic television is just beginning. If you’ve been paying attention, you already know that in 2023 we’ll be looking for the truth (which we have heard is out there), but we wanted to kick this winter off together with a little jaunt through the Canadian wilderness. Beginning November 30th, we’ll be serving up steaming skewers of Doomcoming, a fresh and juicy Yellowjackets podcast, where we’ll be rewatching Season 1 together, spoiler-free, in eager anticipation of Season 2. All of our conversations about cannibalism, aliens, and the 1990s will be happening right here in this very feed.

Giles is back in corduroy with some new potential slayer step-sisters, Drusilla as The First is wriggling and giggling about, Xander and Andrew *cannot* stop flirting, and Turok-Han is really, really strong.

Dear friend of the pod Helen Zalztman (The Allusionist, Answer Me This!) joins us today for a deep dive into linguistics in Buffy the Vampire Slayer!

0.41 Celebrating 25 Years of Buffy from Sunnydale High

We celebrated the 25th Anniversary of Buffy the Vampire Slayer from Torrance High School, aka Sunnydale High, with hundreds of your beautiful nerdy faces — and it was one of the best nights of our damn lives. We are going through some of our favorite high-school moments from Buffy, including the infamous Oedipus Rex performance at the end of "The Puppet Show," (17:22) the meeting of The Mayor, Faith, Buffy, Angel and everyone else in "Choices," (33:12) and that romantically terrifying lovers-to-ghosts possession in "I Only Have Eyes For You" (55:14). Oh, and then we prove that Buffy and Faith absolutely totally entirely had sex with each other (1:10:20). It was truly a night for the books. + THE BUFFY + FAITH HAD SEX PowerPoint PresentationTODAY IS THE LAST DAY TO WATCH US LIVE: 25TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION OF BUFFY AT SUNNYDALE HIGHAn epic evening of live music, conversation, special guests, and oh-so-much laughter broadcast live from Torrance High School!momenthouse.com/bufferingthevampireslayerLOCATE YOUR HOSTS UPON THE INTERNET Jenny Owen Youngs: @jennyowenyoungs; jennyowenyoungs.comKristin Russo: @kristinnoeline; kristinnoeline.comBuffering the Vampire Slayer: @bufferingcast on twitter, facebook, and instagramLearn more about our team at bufferingthevampireslayer.com/our-team Special Guests: LaToya Ferguson, Morgan Lutich, Evan Ross Katz, and Joanna RobinsonScoop up Evan's new book "Into Every Generation A Slayer Is Born: How Buffy Staked Our Hearts" Produced by: Kristin Russo, Jenny Owen Youngs, and Zoe ReganEdited by: John Mark Nelson & Kristin RussoLogo: Kristine Thune+++SUPPORT US ON PATREON!Advance Music, Bonus Episodes, Live Concerts, Book Clubs, wheeeee!!patreon.com/bufferingcast SCOOP SOME MERCH!Smash the Patriarchy with Buffering T-Shirts, Hoodies, Sweatpants, Pins!bufferingthevampireslayer.com/shop+++We acknowledge that we and our team are occupying unceded and stolen lands and territories.

Time to repair all of the broken windows at the Summers' house, see Aimee Mann at The Bronze, and get a little kinky with Spike in the name of detective work! The thing beneath us is also getting PARTICULARLY hot and bothered as we near the mid-point of the season and, perhaps relatedly, several women in Sunnydale seem to only be able to speak in breathy porn voices when they meet attractive vampires who want to bite them.

Buffy is using all of her slayer know-how to be a guidance counselor at the new Sunnydale High and it seems that, as many might have anticipated, those two skill sets do not have significant overlap — though she is great at sharpening pencils. Spike is still feeling very very sad in the basement, Zachary Ty Bryan is here to remind us that boys (in robes) will be boys (in robes), and Cassie's death hits the Scooby gang hard because... what do you do if you know you can't help?

0.40 Seeing Red & "The Monster Myth"

This is a re-airing of "Seeing Red & 'The Monster Myth,'" which originally aired in our Patreon feed alongside Buffy's S6E19: "Seeing Red" We've chosen to re-air this episode in the main feed the week after Season 7's second episode, "Beneath You," to double down on the conversation surrounding accountability, and on the nuance that exists when there is a pre-existing intimate relationship that has to be navigated in the context of harm. You’ll hear Jess talk about those who share childcare responsibilities, finances, and in other ways still have to rely on the person who has harmed them, and also hear us speak to the importance of letting the person harmed — in this case Buffy — dictate the terms of the relationship. Content Warning: Sexual Assault, Sexual Violence, RapeThis episode contains spoilers through the end of Buffy Season 7 •••We are in conversation with Jess Clark, who today joins Alba Daza and Kristin Russo to foster a space for much-needed and nuanced conversation on Spike's sexual assault of Buffy as depicted in S6E19's "Seeing Red." We explore how media has historically shaped what we anticipate and assume about sexual assault, how this episode upends some of those tropes, and how the episode's depiction and the larger arc between Spike and Buffy can be used as a lens to explore much more beyond Sunnydale. ••• This episode was produced & hosted by Alba Daza, Jess Clark,& Kristin Russo Find Alba Daza on Instagram @alba.daza; albadaza.com Jess Clark is the Prevention Manager at Solace Crisis Treatment Center (a rape crisis center) in Santa Fe, NM and a consultant for Catharsis Productions out of Chicago. He has been doing sexual violence prevention for a decade and his work focuses on increasing youth capacity to interrogate systems of oppression, exploring queer/trans masculinites as a site of violence prevention, and supporting organizations in better serving transgender communities through policies and best practices.Find Kristin Russo on Twitter & Instagram @kristinnoeline; kristinnoeline.com Find Buffering the Vampire Slayer: @bufferingcast on twitter, facebook, and instagram Listen to today's episode of Angel On Top in their new feed:bufferingthevampireslayer.com/angelontopEdited by: John Mark Nelson & Kristin RussoLogo Design by: Kristine ThuneLearn more about our team at bufferingthevampireslayer.com/our-team •••If you are able, please donate to Survived & Punished: survivedandpunished.org Survived & Punished is a prison abolition organization. We believe that prisons, detention centers, all forms of law enforcement, and punitive prosecution are rooted in systems of violence, including racial, anti-trans/queer, sexual, and domestic violence.

0.39 Unbury Your Gays

As a part of a four-episode series surrounding 6.19 Seeing Red, Kristin curated a conversation with Emma O'Sullivan — a former Kitten Board member who met her wife on the Willow & Tara boards in the early aughts — and Jen Malkowski, our very favorite "scholar of death," who also happened to be hanging out on The Kitten Board when the show aired. This conversation is both its own capturing of queer history and also a more comprehensive look at the importance of queer representation, the impact of the death of Tara Maclay, and a celebration of Tara, Willow, and the community of queer viewership that has catalogued, spoken up, and held each other through decades of irresponsible media representation. This episode originally aired on our Patreon RSS feed, and we are now releasing it in the main feed!This conversation contains spoilers through Season 7 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

We are heading out of the grave and into the light, dearest scoobies — it is the end, the end of Season Six! WE MADE IT!!!!

So join your hosts LaToya Ferguson and Morgan Lutich (AKA the Cordelia and Fred of the Bufferingverse, AKA the Gunn Squad, and so much more) as they continue to talk good and/or bad parenting, Holtz and Justine's whole deal, what exactly Angel (and The WB) was trying to do with Vincent Kartheiser, and poor, sad Groosalugg.LOCATE YOUR HOSTS ON THE INTERNET LaToya Ferguson: @lafergs Read An Encyclopedia of Women’s Wrestling Morgan Lutich: @lorganmutich Listen to LaToya, Morgan, and their pal Jill discuss The Vampire Diaries on The AMPire Diaries podcast!

She owes you! She owes you paaaain!

Angel On Top — 3x19 The Price

Now, we're not sure if you've heard, but there is always a price to using dark magics. That's a lesson our foes over on Buffering the Vampire Slayer learned earlier this season (with "After Life"), and it's a lesson we're all learning this week on Angel on Top (with "The Price").

Angel On Top — 3x18 Double or Nothing

Scoobies, a question: Is "Double or Nothing" a fun episode of Angel or is it quite a sad episode of Angel?

Mullins and Frank Scabopolis, and so much more) as they attempt to answer this very difficult question.

Angel On Top — 3x17 Forgiving

Scoobies, a wise woman once said: "Forgiveness... is more than saying sorry. Forgiveness... means accepting people's flaws." And that is a lesson that the "Dark Avenger" himself must learn in a little episode called "Forgiving." Now, does Angel actually learn that lesson? Join your hosts LaToya Ferguson and Morgan Lutich (AKA the Cordelia and Fred of the Bufferingverse, AKA Bones and Also Bones, AKA the Gunn Squad, AKA Theodore K. Mullins and Frank Scabopolis, and so much more) to find out. We promise to make fun out of an episode that is pretty much the antithesis of fun. (I mean, just think about the Justine of it all.)

6.16 Hells Bells

Okay. Well. In today's episode — S6E16: Hell's Bells — Spike has brought a date to Xander and Anya's wedding (a date, did you know, it is a date) but only cares about Buffy's happiness, Dawn has met a cute demon teen, Clem looks absolutely excellent in his suit, Tara and Willow can't stop giggling, and Buffy is really good at juggling (less skilled at charades). Also in today's episode, Xander's family is a living nightmare worse than any demon we've yet seen, and Xander's lived history of trauma colliding with a demon who wants to return Anya's vengeance for a full refund leave us all very, very upset. Yes, we ARE still in Season 6.

Angel On Top — 3x16 Sleep Tight

Look, Scoobies... We promised you that things would never get bad on Angel and that we'd always be happy here on Angel on Top, and... Well, hey—we're still doing better than our nemeses over at Buffering the Vampire Slayer right now, right? Right. So just "Sleep Tight," because we'll get through this particular emotional hurdle together. (Do you like how I used the episode title in context like that?) Sure, Angel might not get over losing his son to Holtz and a Hell dimension, and Wesley might not get over having his throat slit, but... Hey, Fred and Gunn were really cute in this episode, right?

6.13 Dead Things

If only we could go back in time and be held by the sweet embrace of robot boyfriends, demons on the internet, snake mayors, and bad eggs. Alas, we are here together in Season 6, and today we are discussing Episode 13: Dead Things. Somehow, despite the heaviness of the episode itself, we find ourselves having a LOT to say about one Fatih Lehane, ranting on middle parts and Gen Z, and delighted in sheer horror at what has been done to Buffy's green t-shirt. Join us, we shall journey forth together!For a deeper conversation on the heavier themes in today's episode, please see below for information on the conversation between Alba Daza and Jess Clark!CW: Sexual Violence, Physical Violence +++ JESS CLARK in Conversation with Alba Daza CW: Sexual Violence, Physical Violence Listen here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/51142821 As noted in the intro to today's episode, Producer Alba Daza had a conversation with Jess Clark, doing a deeper dive into the trio's attempted rape and murder of Katrina in this week's episode — examining why Andrew and Jonathan, specifically, seem surprised to hear Katrina call it what it is by name, how the trio is specifically positioned to help us examine toxic masculinity, incel culture, and (of course) the patriarchy. Jess Clark is the Prevention Manager at Solace Crisis Treatment Center (a rape crisis center) in Santa Fe, NM and a consultant for Catharsis Productions out of Chicago. He has been doing sexual violence prevention for a decade and his work focuses on increasing youth capacity to interrogate systems of oppression, exploring queer/trans masculinites as a site of violence prevention, and supporting organizations in better serving transgender communities through policies and best practices.A massive thank you to both Jess and Alba for having this conversation. +++ LOCATE YOUR HOSTS UPON THE INTERNET Jenny Owen Youngs: @jennyowenyoungs; jennyowenyoungs.comKristin Russo: @kristinnoeline; kristinnoeline.comBuffering the Vampire Slayer: @bufferingcast on twitter, facebook, and instagramLearn more about our team at bufferingthevampireslayer.com/our-team +++Produced by: Kristin Russo, Jenny Owen Youngs, and Alba DazaEdited by: John Mark Nelson & Kristin Russo +++JOIN OUR PATREON FAMILY!!Advance Music, Bonus Episodes, Live Concerts, Book Clubs, wheeeee!!patreon.com/bufferingcastMERCH, MERCH, MERCH!bufferingthevampireslayer.com/shopLogo: Kristine Thune +++ We acknowledge that we and our team are occupying unceded and stolen lands and territories.

Angel On Top — 3x09 Lullaby

Oh, Scoobies. It is time for one heck of an emotional rollercoaster, both for unexpectedly expecting vampire parents Angel and Darla and your newly-minted podcast parents LaToya and Morgan. But you know what? To quote the Shawn Mullins song "Lullaby": "Everything's gonna be alright." As long as you don't question Sahjhan's motives at all, that is.

Angel On Top — 3x08 Quickening

It may be February, but allow us to transport you back to November 2001 for some network sweeps shenanigans in the form of a vampire pregnancy. Darla is about to give birth to a baby that may or may not "skitter" out of her, Holtz is armed with knowledge of the moon landing (but very little about Angel's current deal), and the creeps employed by Wolfram & Hart have never been creepier.

Angel On Top — 3x05 Fredless

The crack detectives over at Angel Investigations still have yet to be paid for a case this season, but you know what they have done, Scoobies? No, Cordy hasn't had a vision yet. No, Gunn hasn't made amends with Lorne. No, Wesley hasn't found an Angel impression that isn't all forehead. And no, despite what we went through last episode -- horny body swap shenanigans -- Angel hasn't stopped being super charming to Fred. But now, they have finally met Fred's parents! That's right, Fred has parents, y'all. And now, they are no longer "Fredless."

Angel On Top — 3x04 Carpe Noctem

Four episodes into this season of Angel, and Angel Investigations still hasn't done a paid case. (So maybe get off your high horse about that whole saving people for money thing, characters over on the B-word show.) But you know what they have done? Well, besides tackling race relations, they have also given us another body swap episode to add to the canon, with "Carpe Noctem." Behold what is arguably the horniest episode of Angel, to the point where even the official WB promos for it included dick jokes for the episode's subtitle. (Seriously.) Join LaToya Ferguson as she and guest host Morgan Lutich unpack all the horniness of this episode -- whether they like it or not -- as well as the glaring logistics of the fact that no one immediately said, "Hey, Angel's been body swapped!"

So... Remember how Gunn decided to simply ignore all of his problems at home during the Pylea arc at the end of Angel Season 2? Well, those problems have popped right back up, and well, Gunn continues to handle them poorly. Really poorly. Almost as if there was a lack of interest in even telling the story of Gunn's problems at all.

Holy moly, scoobies, we sat down to chat with the one and only Juliet Landau — and she is every bit as brilliant and wonderful as you'd guess! We talk vampire sexuality, manicures, narcissism, Dru's accent, what she named the stars (to the result of such terrible confusion), and so so so so much more!

0.28: LaToya Ferguson, Alanna Bennett, & Ira Madison III on Race in the Buffy & Angelverse

The absolutely brilliant LaToya Ferguson, Alanna Bennett, and Ira Madison III host today's conversation on race within the Buffy and Angelverse! This is the first in a larger series that will be produced and hosted by BIPOC Buffy fans here on the Buffering the Vampire Slayer and WOW — what a way to begin. These three TV geniuses bring their encyclopedic knowledge of both series to the table with questions like: What would have happened if Leonard Roberts played Riley? Why in the hell was Drusilla able to kill Kendra — an immensely powerful Slayer — with one filed f*cking fingernail? How would it have impacted the arc of the show if Bianca Lawson had been cast as Cordelia? This. Episode. Fucking. Rules. Today’s conversation was curated, produced, and edited by LaToya Ferguson. You can follow LaToya at @lafergs on Twitter and you should also *immediately* tune into her podcast about The Vampire Diaries (YEAH THAT’S RIGHT) called The AMPire Diaries over at theampirediariespod.comAlanna Bennett is a culture writer and screenwriter who you can follow over at @AlannaBennett on Twitter and Instagram! Currently Alanna is writing for The CW’s Roswell, New MexicoIra Madison III would love if you’d just please leave him alone (he’s busy!), but if you INSIST he can be found at @ira on Twitter, @irathethird on Instagram; he also was a writer on Netflix’s Daybreak and is currently writing on Netflix’s forthcoming Q-Force-- Massive thanks to Mackenzie MacDade and Alba Daza who are working with us as consultants and facilitators! Here’s more on their work: Mackenzie MacDade is a 31 year old, queer woman of color, teaching artist, feminist, part time poet and general rabble rouser. She got her start in feminism from a book of feminist nursery rhymes, and her start in pop culture analysis from 9 years of homeschooling (translation: 9 years of TV and movie watching). A firm believer in queering the collective consciousness, she strives to inspire people to redesign their idea of normal and step out their comfort zone. She takes inspiration from Gertrude Stein, Buffy, Angela Davis, Faith and bell hooks. Someone once described her as “The love child of Angela Davis and Ru-Paul” and she thinks that just about sums it up. Alba Daza is a 27-year-old emerging Latinx writer/director/podcaster based in Montreal, Canada. At 13 years old she discovered (through Buffy) that she wanted to be a screenwriter and hasn’t let go of that dream since. Her stories focus on telling and celebrating the stories of marginalized voices, giving them space to breathe and thrive. Through her work, she plans to decolonize pop culture and Slay white supremacy, just like Buffy taught her.

5.17: Forever

Today we are moving from the shock of losing Joyce and along to the many paths of grief: some leave flowers, others listen to music that reminds them of different days, some hold their old, broody loves close. Then of course there are those who break Wiccan oaths, visit men in a bathrobes with a tail, steal eggs from totally innocent Ghora demons, and attempt to raise the deceased using forbidden magic. Standard Sunnydale stuff. PHEWF. It is Season 5 Episode 17: Forever. We love and miss you, Joyce.

5.16.02: More on The Body with Kristine Sutherland and Brittany Ashley

The Body remains one of the most emotionally resonant television episodes of all time, and this week we are continuing our exploration of its many themes. We are first in conversation with Brittany Ashley, host and producer of "Don't Tell the Babysitter Mom's Dead," a grief podcast which explores the experience of losing parents, and specifically mothers. Brittany lost her own mom at age six, and talks about her ongoing journey through that loss, her relationship to this episode of television, and the power she has found in sharing her experiences with others. We also have the absolute honor of sharing our previously unreleased conversation with Kristine Sutherland about her time on the series, and specifically the impact this episode has had on her life, and the lives of so many others!

5.16: The Body

Today we journey together into one of the most impactful episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and — in our opinion — one of the most impactful episodes of television across time and genre, S5E16: The Body.
