This week on BUFFY: THE VAMPIRE PODCAST, get ready for --*record scratch*-- wait, what? Who are we?? Which series is this?!?! Identity crises are the name of the game because Vera, Katie, and Livy are talking about 2x07 “Intimate Stranger.” With the show's first foray into body swap territory, this Xena and Callisto classic sure has an uncanny resemblance to another famous body swap episode at the time...you know the one. We lose our minds over how great Lucy Lawless and Hudson Leick are at inhabiting each other’s roles, try to puzzle out why feeling guilty always leads to SPINNING INTO A ROCK, navigate through the minefield of consent issues that is the Callisto/Ares hook-up, and discuss the terrible extenuating circumstances that forced the ep’s unnatural ending into existence. (Y'all, Gilbert Gottfried is always bad news.)
The power, the passion, the podcast!
