"I'm a Slayer. Ask me how." 

Kate Balzer and Charles Swint, friends since high school, love to discuss their favorite television show, Buffy the Vampire Slayer. They watched the series from the beginning when it aired on The WB and haven’t stopped since. Each season tackles an overarching theme, or “Big Bad,” and each episode will cover a topic within the season’s theme. If you’ve seen the entire series and love to talk about the big storylines to the minor details, then this is the podcast for you! Even though it’s been 20 years since the show ended, there’s still so much to talk about. Join Kate and Charles for the conversation!
