6.13 Dead Things

If only we could go back in time and be held by the sweet embrace of robot boyfriends, demons on the internet, snake mayors, and bad eggs. Alas, we are here together in Season 6, and today we are discussing Episode 13: Dead Things. Somehow, despite the heaviness of the episode itself, we find ourselves having a LOT to say about one Fatih Lehane, ranting on middle parts and Gen Z, and delighted in sheer horror at what has been done to Buffy's green t-shirt. Join us, we shall journey forth together!

For a deeper conversation on the heavier themes in today's episode, please see below for information on the conversation between Alba Daza and Jess Clark!

JESS CLARK in Conversation with Alba Daza

CW: Sexual Violence, Physical Violence

Listen here:

As noted in the intro to today's episode, Producer Alba Daza had a conversation with Jess Clark, doing a deeper dive into the trio's attempted rape and murder of Katrina in this week's episode — examining why Andrew and Jonathan, specifically, seem surprised to hear Katrina call it what it is by name, how the trio is specifically positioned to help us examine toxic masculinity, incel culture, and (of course) the patriarchy.

Jess Clark is the Prevention Manager at Solace Crisis Treatment Center (a rape crisis center) in Santa Fe, NM and a consultant for Catharsis Productions out of Chicago. He has been doing sexual violence prevention for a decade and his work focuses on increasing youth capacity to interrogate systems of oppression, exploring queer/trans masculinites as a site of violence prevention, and supporting organizations in better serving transgender communities through policies and best practices.A massive thank you to both Jess and Alba for having this conversation.
