    Default Advertising question

    Hi everyone.

    So along with a friend I recently started a Buffy podcast with strong feminist conversation. I would say the content is like 60/40 Buffy content vs feminist commentary.

    I look forward to becoming a part of this community and wanted to make sure I dont step on any toes. I checked the faq and rules but saw nothing about advertising. Am i free to create a thread inviting people to check out my podcast or is there something I missed that will make me glad I posted this question first?

    Thanks in advance for your time.

    It's probably better if an admin answers that question. But I suspect that it won't bother anyone if you make a thread about your podcast if you are posting and participating on this forum. Linkdumps will probably be marked as 'spam' and deleted. That said, you can also place the link in your signature and then people will see it everytime you post (if you want to play it safe).

    Thank you for the advice! I think I will stick with the signature for now until I get to know the community a bit better just to be safe.

    I know that Joss was a feminist icon and now his show seems hardly feminist but that proves things have changed radically in 20 years and for the better. If you actually treat this as an historical show set in the 80's and showing the 80's reality then this works for me. If it's another gripe list with outrage...not so much.

    It's too much like watching a show set in the 1850's and then listening to complaints about how they shouldn't show slavery because slavery is evil. I'd rather hear about how this portrays an historical reality that existed and how hard it was at the time. I already know slavery and misogyny are wrong, as is the patriarchy and toxic masculinity. Had Buffy known that it would be a different show.

    Good luck either way.
    Bottom line is, even if you see them coming, you're not ready for the big moments...The big moments are gonna come, you can't help that. It's what you do afterwards that counts. That's when you find out who you are.

    Although this podcast is in no way designed to complain about Joss Whedon or his fall from feminist hero status in the eyes of many (myself included) I have to admit this podcast may not be the one for you.

    Kayla who is my partner in this podcast has never seen the show and is watching it one episode at a time because despite its creator I view this show as one of the first great pro-feminism shows to have existed. That being said I must admit we do absolutly point out the failings in the show on many fronts as they come up and because we are still in the early episodes of season one wich offer limited story to focus on we have focused quite heavily on the patriarchal issues thus far. Although we do absolutely take note of how different things were in the late 90s when this show was created I don't think that is quite what you had in mind when you mentioned treating the show as a historical show.

    I would like to end with the caveat that for all the negatives we point out we also have many positive things to say about the shows roll in feminism.

    Thank you so much that is remarkably helpful and I will head over to that thread next.

    I must say I have been wary of posting because everyone here is so eloquent and insightful and I am slightly intimidated in the best possible way. I will absolutely come out of my shell shortly but so far I have found little to say that has not already been said. It is so refreshing to find a group of people with so many wonderful things to say about this show I have loved for so long and I look forward to the moment when I find a post where I have something worth wile to contribute!

    Hey Vague, welcome to the forum. I am an avid listener to podcasts and will definitely listen to yours. Good Luck with it. I imagine it's a huge undertaking. Is this your first podcast?

    It is indeed my first podcast and if I am being honest I am in a bit over my head but both myself and my podcast partner Kayla learn best in a trial by fire environment and I fogure with season one being such a slog anyway we can be forgiven if it takes some time tonget our feet under us.

    Im just on my way to the general discussion page to create a thread for the pod in hopes of finding some feedback to help improve the show. Hope to see you there!!!

    Wish you loads of luck with the podcast. I'm sure I'll enjoy it, but even if I didn't, I'd still wish you success.

    I think it's mainly nostalgia, but there's a lot to like in S1. I've got a soft spot for The Puppet Show . . . I'll get my coat
