Episode 30: The Myth of the Werewolf


In this episode, Cory and Laine take a little break from our episode rewatch to discuss the possible origins of werewolf myths, what that might have to do with witch trials and gender dynamics, and of course, everyone’s favorite werewolf, Oz.

Thanks for listening to our discussion of werewolves in the Buffyverse!

  1. I am on episode 14 of your podcast. I am really trying to catch up so I can comment along with you guys ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ I am loving your points of view and your insight makes me so happy!!! Love having people who love this show as much as I do!! I have seen the show multiple times as well as Angel and the comics. Just wanted to tell you guys that I appreciate you guys๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค


  2. I’m a couple of episodes behind (I still haven’t listened to ‘Innocence’ but just skipped ahead to this one), but I wanted to add a couple of werewolf movie portrayals:

    Ginger Snaps – werewolf transformation as female coming-of-age (horror) story. I’m not the biggest fan of the metaphor itself, but I think it was well done, and just a fun movie overall.

    What We Do in the Shadows – werewolves and anger management ๐Ÿ™‚
