About Buffering the Vampire Slayer

Hello and welcome to our Patreon page, conveniently located where two of Sunnydale's premiere creepy back alleys intersect! We are so very delighted that you stopped by. Please be sure to watch your step for pools of blood and errant hellmouths.

What is Buffering the Vampire Slayer?

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 speaker and former goth teen) discuss Buffy the Vampire Slayer, one episode at a time. Every installment of the podcast also includes a new original song recapping each glorious Buffy episode! *spooky wolf howl* 

Why Patreon?

Making this podcast is a dream come true, but it’s the kind of dream that takes up oodles and oodles of time. We spend hours and hours each week on preparation, recording and producing the episodes, writing and recording a complete recap song(!), and fine-tuning the audio mix in order to make each episode as great as possible for our amazing listeners.

There are also a number of expenses related to running the show: website hosting, podcast distribution, recording equipment and software, and any number of other incidentals. Patreon support helps offset those costs.

Patreon also gives us a space to share all of regular our content - which is and shall remain free to all - in combination with extras and bonus material for our incredible supporters. 

As part of our ongoing efforts to create and maintain an anti-racist base here at Buffering the Vampire Slayer, our Black and Indigenous listeners can access all of our patreon digital content (everything except the exclusive merch shipments) for no charge. You can learn more about our efforts, and request access, at bufferingthevampireslayer.com/justkeepfighting

Fang You, Fang You Very Much!

Thank you SO much for listening to our podcast! We love Buffy, and it’s SO fun to dig into the episodes and characters with all of you. If you like what we do, please tell your friends, family, and any ensouled vampires with whom you may be acquainted. And if you are able to support us here on Patreon, we'd truly and deeply appreciate it.

With all our love and custom fangs,
Jenny & Kristin
