Bonus: Ginger Snaps With Guest Kirsten Turpel
Hello Gentle Listeners! 3 things: I'm sorry about our long absence, I'm sorry this is a few days after all hallows eve and I am sorry for how much I sniffle during this damn episode. In Chicago we are currently suffering from a curse like Ginger, but it is the much more mild curse of a cold instead of, you know, pesky hormones and urges to devour living things around you. Thank you to the delightful witchy Kirsten Turpel for hosting me to talk about a feminist horror fave, GINGER SNAPS. Spoiler alert this movie is wickedly fun.

Season 3 Bonus: High School Retrospective
Now that the Scoobies have fully matriculated, we can't help but feel nostalgic about that special hell that is high school. Cate and I take a moment to reminisce about our own experiences, and then in true yearbook fashion walk through some MVP moments from the past three seasons of Buffy. Please join us to weigh in on such votes as best kiss, biggest betrayal, hardest cry, and most memorable death scene. Then pack up your flip flops and mini fridges, Gentle Listeners, 'cuz it's time to head to college! See you at U.C. Sunnydale.

Season 3 Episode 22: Graduation Day Part 2 with Guest Milan Cook
WELL GOSH, Gentle Listeners! We are at the end of another season of Buffy and we have come to the end of high school! It's time for us to move on, but as Vitamin C reminds us we will never forget the times we had together with our beloved Mayor even when he is a giant CGI penis snake. We have some differing opinions on the level of cheese this graduation is serving us, but I am eating all the cheese except for maybe that god awful kiss that just leaves us all with a terrible taste. Special thanks to Guest Babe Milan Cook for joining us again to sort through the wreckage this graduation leaves us with! Talking Points - Cheese slathering, getting slapped around by Gina Torres, controversial hair choices, gratuitous slurping sounds, Angel's battle blazer, and full Lizard King status Milan's tumblr that we mention in the episode- milansreactionwhen.tumblr.com/

We've arrived at another season finale, Gentle Listeners! The Mayor is snacking on magic bugs and preparing for his Ascension.

Season 3 Episode 20: The Prom with Guests Suki Braze and Rosa Reinemann
It's the most important night of our young lives, Gentle Listeners! And no amount of Mom lectures, Hell Hounds, or awkward sewer breakups are going to get in the way of our Scoobie Gang enjoying one night of pure high school bliss. Special thanks to our Guest Babes Suki and Rosa, for joining us to take a walk down memory lane in this iconic Prom episode. Suggested talking points: Air Budding, extreme doodling, dendrophilia, and David Whats-His-Nuts

Season 3 Episode 19: Choices
Choices! Look at your life, look at your choices, Scoobies! The overall theme of Buffy comes into play in this episode and some of the choices they make in this episode may raise some eyebrows (I'm looking at you, writers.)Your babes are a bit out of wack for this episode, which seems fitting since this plan is pretty wack as well. Even though this episode leaves me with a heavy dose of "meh" I am as always delighted to have our mayor deliver some fatherly advise even if we question the timing or reasoning behind it. So babes make a choice to listen to this episode! Suggested talking points - The freshest cookies, "Kiss Me I'm Invincible," Missionary Impossible, and the wizarding world of moral relativism

Season 3 Episode 18: Earshot
Cate’s back in action, Gentle Listeners! And just in time to discuss one of her favorite episodes, Earshot! Equal parts Comedy and Tragedy, this episode inspires a multitude of thoughts and feelings from Buffy fans. There’s a lot of ground to cover with Jonathon alone, but there’s so much more to explore when we get an inside glimpse into the minds of each Scooby! And on top of all that, this episode would still be one of our favs just for the delicious Band Candy revelations. Suggested Talking Points: True Crime Binges, Inserted Clocktowers, Lazy Teleportation, and Hatefucking Shakesbros Special heads up for Chicago Babes - Hope to see you all at Slayathon on June 17th! http://slayathon.org/

Season 3 Bonus: Earshot Discussion with Ashley Meyer
It's Bonus Episode time, Gentle Listeners! Earshot packs an awful lot into a one-off episode, and tackles some pretty dark topics. We decided to call in an Expert Guest Babe to give us the scoop on how high school has changed since the 90's, and what it feels like to watch this episode from a teacher's point of view. Big thanks to Ashley Meyer for lending her insight! And stay tuned next week for the full episode discussion. *Fair warning - if you are particularly sensitive to the topics of gun violence, campus shootings, or suicide you may find this episode triggering.

Season 3 Episode 17: Enemies with Guest Sally Tamarkin
The Mayor's plot to ascend is finally gaining some steam, Gentle Listeners, and Faith is at his right hand ready to seduce, slay, and betray. We're especially excited to welcome Sally Tamarkin, co-host of the Struggle Bus Podcast, as a guest babe this week! Please excuse the fan-girling, but we really can't get over how rad Sally is, and not just for her incredibly diligent analysis of the intricate plot turns in this episode's twisted honeypot. Suggested talking points: Mug channeling, pearl clutching, jailbait fatigue, Buffy insecurity fatigue, Top 5 Rants, and Season 4 Fans: Out and Proud

Season 3 Episode 16: Doppelgangland with guest Eli
We have a fan favorite this week, Gentle Listeners! "Doppelgangland" much like it's counterpart episode "The Wish" this episode is a wild romp, where we meet an alternate reality version of one of our fave scoobies and we get to know the stressed out Anya better (Give that girl a beer). Join us and our delightful guest babe Eli as we discuss if we would have sex with an alternate reality version of ourselves (spoiler alert: 2 of us are all the way in) and as we discuss "Is this kink shaming?" (Verdict yes, yes it is). Suggested Talking Points: Sitting Thigh to Thigh, The Man with the Bone, Clone Sex, Heavy Boobs, Giles After hours, Sports Athletes

Season 3 Episode 15: Consequences with Guest Maggie Wagner
As the name suggests, Gentle Listeners, Consequences is a real bummer of an episode. As much as we admire Faith, when you pile sexual assault on top of manslaughter, betrayal, and abysmal body hiding skills... Well, things really start to get dicey. Luckily, we are fortunate to have Guest Babe Maggie Wagner on the show this week. And when things get rough, at least we can count on her for snacks and bottled water. Suggested Talking Points: C2E2 Moms, Snape Feels, Basic Rug 101, and an Innocence Raincoat

Season 3 Bonus: Comic Books Discussion at Alley Cat!
Your Babes had to take a pause this week, Gentle Listeners, so instead we're bringing you a special treat. To celebrate Free Comic Book Day, Anna stopped by one of our favorite Chicago comic shops for a chat. Special thanks to Nicholas Idell and Patrick McLean of Alley Cat Comics!

Season 3 Episode 14: Bad Girls
Ok Gentle Listeners - I’m gonna be real honest. Sure, there’s a new Watcher in town. Yes, Faith straight up kills a dude. Noted, the events of this episode kick off the third act of Season 3 and have consequences that linger throughout the entire series. But damn, friends, it’s been a looong week. Cate and I just needed to crack open a bottle (or two) of wine, brush heavy topics aside, and focus the majority of our analysis on all the hot and heavy slayer sexual tension. Sorry I’m not sorry XOXO Suggested Talking Points: Jabba vibes, slippery trout, foils every which way, and sooooo many whiskey

Season 3 Episode 13: The Zeppo with Guest Ashlie Daigle
It's time we hold the mirror up to ourselves, Gentle Listeners, and examine just what is it about Buffy that delights us so much? As ironic as an irony can ever get, this Xander-centric episode provides us with a meta exploration of some pretty deep social, psychological, and psychosexual topics. Special thanks to Guest Babe Ashlie for joining us this week to help discuss the affinity we can all feel for the Ron Weasleys of the world, the nuances of authentic vs. performative masculinity, and the BAFFLING half-crimped hairstyles. (You can decide for yourselves which of these is most upsetting...) Suggested Talking Points - First Boyfriend Laboratories, The Oz Brow, a gardening dick, and a pre-porn BBQ Here's our Patreon! Thank you! https://www.patreon.com/user?u=5706996

Season 3 Episode 12: Helpless with Guest Mindi
It’s another Buffy Birthday, Gentle Listeners, and you know what that means in the Whedonverse…. Time to bring on the pain. She’s not a girl, not yet a woman, and unmistakably on the verge of becoming one woke-ass eighteen year old slayer and the Watchers Counsel can’t have that. Apparently Giles got an A in “Trackless Marks Class” at Watcher School, but we’re still left with some pretty serious unanswered gem questions. Special thanks to Guest Babe Mindi for joining us in Helpless to discuss all the lore, the trauma, and the MUTHUFUCKIN PATRIARCHY AMIRIGHT. Suggested talking points - martial arts sex picnics, Richard White Guy III, murder B&B’s, and an indictment of the nuclear family

Season 3 Episode 11: Gingerbread with Guest Shellie
It’s the Year of Y2K, Gentle Listeners! As the millennium approaches, Sunnydale is caught in the grips of satanic panic and only MOO can save us. Our Resident Librarian and Cate’s Black Mirror Library co-host, Shellie, joins us in Gingerbread to discuss censorship, book burning, and cyclical xenophobia hiding under the guise of moralism. Save the children! Burn the "bad girls." Suggested Talking Points: Intern Brandon, fractured fairy tales, Mom Mentality vs. Mob Mentality, and a hot homoerotic Lewis & Clark expedition
