Hello Denizens of The Cleveland Hellmouth!
We are finally ready to post our first podcast. We are so excited to present to you the podcast of episodes 1 and 2: “Welcome to the Hellmouth” (101) and “The Harvest” (102).
Podcasters for this special double-episode discussion were Becky Clark, Katherine Clark, and Mark W. Schumann.
In this episode:
- Becky explains the meaning of Buffy’s cross!
- Dr waves vague hints about Joyce, Buffy’s mother!
- Mark talks about the typical Wheedon double story line!
- Everyone agrees that Willow is great.
- We edited out the part where the dog freaks out.
- Nobody understands what’s up with Buffy’s secret identity as the Slayer.
- Mark says Buffy sucks at being Spiderman and Harry Potter.
- Becky really hates Cordelia.
- And Mark gets to say “Slacker Deus Ex Machina.”

And please, leave us a comment. We are new at this, and really love feedback. We especially want to know where you agree or disagree with us. Do you have anything you’d like us to explore? Let us know!
By the way: I really really really want Mark, who knows very little about this show, and folks who are watching Buffy for the very first time, to have their innocence preserved as long as possible. Please don’t spoil later episodes when you talk about the podcasts. This can be hard, believe me! But let’s attempt to have it be spoiler-free. Thanks, everyone! Can’t wait to see your comments!!
