6.04: Flooded
As the saying goes, you should really fix that small leak before all your pipes burst and you're suddenly standing knee-deep in water, playing kitten poker, and using a copper pipe to kill a bank demon — all while three ridiculous white men try to take over your town using their complete lack of wit and a moderate heaping of whimsy. It's Season Goddamn 6 Episode Goddamn 4: Flooded. PAY THE FUCKING SLAYER. WHAT THE FUCK. +++ LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT  We acknowledge that we and our team are occupying unceded and stolen lands and territories.  Kristin occupies the Lenape territories of the Esopus Lenape Peoples. Jenny occupies the Wabanahkik territory of the Abenaki and Pennacook Peoples. Alba occupies Tiohtià:ke of the Kanien’kehá:ka Nation. Mack, LaToya, and John Mark occupy the lands of the Kizh Peoples. Land acknowledgements exist to celebrate the indigenous peoples who are the rightful guardians of the land or territory that we as colonizers are inhabiting. A Land acknowledgement also encourages non-indigenous people to recognize that they are on stolen and unceded indigenous land and to directly engage with that knowledge in meaningful and impactful ways.  Learn more on land acknowledgements here: LAND REPARATIONS & INDIGENOUS SOLIDARITY TOOLKIT Learn what Indigenous Lands You Occupy 'I regret it': Hayden King on writing Ryerson University's territorial acknowledgement CELEBRATION + SPOTLIGHT ON INDIGENOUS WORK AND PEOPLES Listen to Metis In Space: http://www.metisinspace.com/ Educational + Activist Accounts  @decolonizemyself @decolonizethisplace @Indigenouspeoplesmovement @indigenousrising @lilnativeboy @wetsuweten_checkpoint Artists  @melaw_nakehko @notoriouscree @project562 @strikingstick #terigreeves @wendyredstar Authors David Treuer @jakeskeets Joy Harjo @kalimaja @shondabuchanan @tiffanymidge Businesses @ataumbimetals @byellowtail @cheekbonebeauty @eighthgeneration @shenative @tpmocs @trickstercompany +++ LOCATE YOUR HOSTS UPON THE INTERNET Jenny Owen Youngs: @jennyowenyoungs; jennyowenyoungs.com Kristin Russo: @kristinnoeline; kristinnoeline.com Buffering the Vampire Slayer: @bufferingcast on twitter, facebook, and instagram Learn more about our team at bufferingthevampireslayer.com/our-team SPECIAL GUEST Gaby Dunn: @gabyroad; gabydunn.com/ +++ Our Anti-Racism Library: https://www.bufferingthevampireslayer.com/antiracist-library Our episode on Pangs: https://radiopublic.com/buffering-the-vampire-slayer-a-b-6nN5z1/s1!0cce2 +++ Produced by: Alba Daza, Kristin Russo, and Jenny Owen Youngs Edited by: John Mark Nelson & Kristin Russo +++ JOIN OUR PATREON FAMILY!!

S03.16: Best Romance Novels of 2020
The Best Romance Novels of 2020! It’s the best and worst task of the year for us, because we read so many AMAZING books over the course of the year, and choosing ten and not one hundred is hard for us, ok? But here they are — ten gorgeous books that we adored—books with badass heroines, larger-than-life heroes, brilliant structure, and outstanding writing. Buy the Fated Mates Best of Book Pack in one fell swoop from our friends at Old Town Books in Alexandria Virginia, and get the seven traditionally published books on the list, a Fated Mates sticker and a candle from the bookstore! Support fabulous authors and a woman-owned independent bookstore all at once! Thank you, as always, for listening! If you are up for leaving a rating or review for the podcast on your podcasting app, we would be very grateful!  Next week, we get back to doing what we do best: Reading Romance! We’re deep-diving on Sally Thorne’s The Hating Game. Get it at Amazon, B&N, Kobo, Apple or at your local indie via bookshop.org. The Best Romance Novels of 2020 Fated States Interested in phone banking or writing postcards to voters in Georgia? Join us for our upcoming Fated States events: phone banking on 12/2/20 and 1/4/2021 and postcards on 12/5/2020. Show Notes Consider buying a Fated Mates pack of 7 of our 10 books (it doesn't include the self-published books) from Old Town Books in Alexandria, Virgina. You can also check out our Bookshop link. Can you believe that RWA debacle was 11 months ago?  So you want to hear us talk about A Heart of Blood and Ashes, Like Lovers Do, Queen Move, or The Devil of Downtown?  Cold War history is fascinating. Not only all the nuclear stuff, but Sarah's story about K Blows Top sounds fascinating.  Some LitFic novels that play around with dual storylines are The French Lieutenant’s Woman, Possession, and the more romance adjacent Secret History of the Pink Carnation.  All about danger banging. And of course there’s a button for that.  Tammany Hall is often used as a historical example of total police corruption.  Up next week, we'll be reading The Hating Game by Sally Thorne.
