This week on XENA: WARRIOR PODCAST, the pins are coming out! It’s time for The Great Unpinning, in which Vera, Katie, and Livy wrap up “A Friend in Need” by picking up all the conversations we’ve shelved since the beginning of the podcast. We discuss the fan response to the finale, the history of the harmful trope Bury Your Gays, and how Xena’s ending both does and doesn’t fit the trope. Also: brutal violence, misogyny, anti-heroes, and how Walter White is the worst. Plus: a very helpful spreadsheet, that b*tch Akemi, fairy queen Xena, the Gabs with a Thousand Faces, and the Love Boon!
The power, the passion, the podcast!
