  • Favourite Podcasts

    I'm an avid podcast listener. I mainly listen to Buffy-centric podcasts, but not exclusively. I wondered if anyone else listens to any podcasts that they'd like to recommend?

    One of my favourites is Lani Diane Rich's Still Pretty. She used to do the Dusted with her husband *ahem ex-husband, but continued on her own, and is much improved for it imo

    Do you have any recommendations?

    I am listening to the Sunnydale Fanfic Club Podcast. They discuss a fanfic every week together with the author. It is quite new, they have been on air for only three weeks. Their first fic was a Jenny/Giles Story in an alternate universe. The second was a one-shot, that was Willow-centric and the third one was a Spuffy fanfic. The next one is going to be a Bangel fanfic. ยด

    You can find them on tumblr, twitter and Facebook. I would post a link here, but i am not really sure, if it would be against the board rules. Maybe someone can give me a hint.

      I listen to a lot of podcasts (while I'm walking my dogs), but unfortunately I don't know many Buffy podcasts that are still running. The only one I listen to is Babes Watch Buffy on Soundcloud - two hosts are rewatching Buffy (and sometimes they have special episodes on other stuff), and they usually have a guest or two. They've just finished season 3, but I'm behind (still listening to season 2 podcasts).
      You keep waiting for the dust to settle and then you realize it; the dust is your life going on. If happy comes along - that weird unbearable delight that's actual happy - I think you have to grab it while you can. You take what you can get, 'cause it's here, and then...gone.

        i love Babes Watch Buffy, it's one of my favourite Buffy podcasts. They've tweeted recently that they'll soon be starting on Season 4 and I'm really looking forward to hearing their thoughts

          I'd like to recommend Buffering the Vampire Slayer podcast, it's fun but also has a serious take on the sexism and patriarchy within BtVS which I enjoy. One of the podcasters is a singer/songwriter and she writes a song for every episode and they are great.

            The song writing sounds like a cute idea, is there anywhere that the lyrics are posted?

            I've never listened to a podcast and don't read episode reviews/critiques for the show generally (apart from the rewatch here of course). I'm too opinionated to actively look to read or listen to something if I can't respond and discuss it with the writer. I often get muddled in what the point was the person was going for and need to quiz and sort out my understanding with them too, duh. How often do you listen to these or read general reviews? Do you try and stick to an episode and look up several for it or do you just follow several people even if they are at different places in their watches?

              I am listening to about 10 Buffy podcasts currently! They range from S1 to S7, some I've listened to from the start and some I've just jumped into. I have listened to a lot more, but once they say they don't like Spike/Spuffy, I turn off
              You do hear a lot of the same opinions, but Buffering is different because it's done by two gay women, they have a very feminist slant which I enjoy, but they are also fun - though not if you are a fan of Xander or Angel. They hate Xander and just laugh at Angel and his melodrama. I am worried that when they get to S5, 6, 7 I won't be able to listen because they will hate Spike

              I don't read episode reviews, except the ones on this site. I do read series reviews, but I prefer to read more in-depth analysis and opinions. I like Slayage and have read a lot of their articles, but to be honest I get most of my enjoyment just discussing the show with fans on the forums

                @ priceless, are you following Passion of the Nerd`s reviews on YouTube ? I have only watched
                Spike-episodes so far, because I simply don`t have the time, to watch every review, but I love them.

                There used to be a written review for every epiosde with a season overall review on a website called Critically Touched. I managed to read all of the season 6 and season 7 reviews during my last summer holiday and when I wanted to go back to them a couple of weeks later, they were gone ! The author had taken them off the internet after they had been there for twenty years and less than twenty weeks, after I had dicovered them !

                Mark Field`s book Myth, Metaphor and Morality is basically a review for every episode as well. I like reading it, but got stuck somewhere in season 3. As I said ....too much to read, too little time.....sigh.

                @priceless, I remember, that you (at least I think, it was you) once recommended a Video Review. I don`t remember the name of the vlogger and I don`t even remember, if it was on YouTube. The only thing I remember, is, that it was by a woman with dark schoulder length hair. Do you know, where I could find her review ?

                  I do watch Passion of the Nerd's reviews, he's really interesting but the reviews aren't long enough Doesn't POTN use
                  Mark Field`s book Myth, Metaphor and Morality as a basis for his reviews? I've never read it, which I probably should if I call myself a proper Buffy fan

                  I hadn't heard of Critically Touched, and it's a shame they've removed their reviews. Do you know why they did that? I wonder if they were 20 years old, if the thinking behind them was outdated.

                  My favourite video review (it's also a podcast) is on YouTube and it's by Lani Diane Rich who was once half of Dusted before her divorce. The reviews are called Still Pretty and they start in S6 which is where Dusted left off, although I think Alistair carried on with another woman (in all senses I believe ) I like Lani and she's pretty pro-Spike which I like

                  You can hear the songs free on Spotify, or at least the first two seasons. You can also listen on the BufferingtheVampireSlayer website. The lyrics for the songs are on the website too. I would recommend them, she's a terrific songwriter and the songs are in all different style. I wish i could link it all, but I don't know how!

                    Just listening to Buffering the Podcast review of Consequences and they are so funny talking about 'detective Angel', is anyone else listening? They gave their sexual tension award to Angel and his leather bound notebook

                      Listened to three episodes of If the Apocalypse Comes, Beep Me and really enjoyed them. They are currently reviewing season two and have some interesting perspectives

                          Two things I've been listening to/watching is Slayerfest98 which is a podcast where some gay men (their description not my assumption) chat about the episode they've watched. I usually end up skipping through some of it when they start to ramble about other things or get hooked on minor points which has very little to do with the story. Their latest is season 4's the Initiative.

                          https://soundcloud.com/user-30221024...the-initiative

                          Then there's another load of your average nerdy blokes discussing the episodes. The majority of the reviews are apparently podcasts (on I think iTunes), but I only watch the few they uploaded as videos on Youtube.

                          https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCaz...able_polymer=1

                          I often find their take on the episodes odd verging on surreal sometimes and they also get hooked on the weirdest of details.

                            Excellent. Have you listened flow? I shall listen tomorrow. I've been looking forward to this one for ages

                            Silver1 Thanks for the podcast recs. I'm always on the lookout for new podcasts so I'll listen to them both

                            Have you listened to it yet? What do you think? Sigyn is not at all what I expected! It was really interesting to hear her talk about her work

                              Yes, I have listened to the podcast. I thouht, sigyn was very focused, she got straight to the heart of things. She voiced her opinion very clearly and came across as an intelligent person. I think, that the hosts were a bit overwhelmed with talking with her and about Pet and I am not sure, if this fic was the right one for them. Theyy seemed to be a bit perplex or flabbergasted.

                              I was very grateful for sigyn talking about evil Spikes development and how he closed himself off of the evil he was doing. She was referring to a line in Destiny, where he says, he never looked back at the victims. That really helped me to understand her evil Spike so much better.

                              I wish, she could have talked a bit about other stories as well, but there was obviously not enough time. I also was surprised, that she has published original novels and I wish, she would have mentioned the titles or her author name. But I guess, she wanted to protect her anonymity ? Oh, and I was impressed, how bravely and openly she talked about her depression.

                              Yes, I was really impressed. Kudos to sigyn
