In this episode of Podcast Fandom: Nina, Ellen, and John are reunited with Meghan who is still recovering from a cold but decided to tough it through recording, instead of miss another episode, so you guys should definitely appreciate her commitment to bringing Podcast Fandom to you. In the episode, the whole crew podcaps the most recent American Horror Story: Coven episode “Protect the Coven“. In addition to their scene-by-scene discussion and always colorful dissection of the episode, they get in references to The X-Files, Beverly Hills 90210, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Zach Braff, Batman (of course), and a whole assload of frankly uncomfortable mentions of buttplay. If that’s not enough, they also respond to a ton of great feedback from you guys and, if you stick around after the outro music, there are some mild spoilers and wacky predictions sure to be wrong. Enjoy, ProFans!
