Episode 1: Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992)

“Admit it, Buffy. Aren’t there times when you just feel… less than fresh?”

Were you ever obsessed by a movie when you were a teenager? We were. But is all that nostalgia clouding our vision of this camp-horror classic? And was it really as good as we remember?

Damien O’Meara is joined by fabulous friend, Emma O’Connor to talk all about Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992). And these two Aussies try to unpick if this movie gave them unrealistic expectations about life as an American high-schooler, cheerleading and the role of handkerchiefs in dramatic death scenes. Most importantly, Sarah Michelle Gellar will always be Buffy Summers (sorry Kristy Swanson).

Note: It turns out that teaching yourself to record and edit a podcast is a journey. This episode is Day 1 of that journey and I promise it gets better.
