Named as one of Esquire's Top 10 Podcasts of 2018, Time's Top 50 Podcasts of 2018, and BBC America’s 10 Most Buzzworthy Podcasts of 2018!

Buffering the Vampire Slayer is a bi-weekly podcast in which your hosts Jenny Owen Youngs (professional musician and recreational Whedonverse aficionado) and Kristin Russo (professional writer and former goth teen) discuss Buffy the Vampire Slayer, one episode at a time.

We have been featured on the iTunes new & noteworthy homepage, were selected as the #1 slot on Entertainment Weekly's "Must List," have been featured several times in The A.V. Club. We were also named on both Esquire & Time's Top Podcast lists of 2018! Not bad for two girls with a penchant for vampire lore and patriarchy-smashing.

Every installment of the podcast also includes a new original song recapping each glorious Buffy episode! *wolf howl*

In addition to our bi-weekly episodes, we also host many live events (including an annual Buffy Prom!), and we’ve had the opportunity to interview many of the incredible cast members about their time on the show! We’ve sat down with James Marsters, Charisma Carpenter, Seth Green, Kristine Sutherland, Harry Groener, Armin Shimmerman, and so many others, and there will be many more to come!
