The power, the passion, the podcast!


Apr 2, 2019

This week on XENA: WARRIOR PODCAST, welcome to our bacchanalia -- try the grapes! Vera, Katie, and Livy enjoy some late Roman decadence with 6x12 “The God You Know,” a messy rollercoaster of giddy highs and problematic lows. We discuss Alexis Arquette’s carefully modulated performance as Caligula, Aphrodite down and out in Rome, the parallels between Xena and Caligula, the show’s infuriatingly sudden descent into queerbaiting, the technically masterful chariot race sequence, and Christianity’s newly sinister depiction. Plus: God Powers 101, the mechanics of face scooping, what do you wear while bowling with Adam Sandler, Xena’s abs make a surprise appearance, Caligula’s horse 2020, eww feet-washing, and Gabrielle’s hat is bad but not as bad as her rope dance! The girlfriend of my girlfriend girlfriend?
