0.33: Invisi-BIPOC with Alba Daza & Mackenzie MacDade
On this week's episode of Buffering the Vampire Slayer, Alba Daza and Mackenzie McDade do an unapologetic deep dive into the BIPOC experience of invisibility. Join them as they discuss the metaphorical and literal ways that Buffy the Vampire Slayer illustrates the ways that BIPOC experience invisibility. They laugh, they (almost) cry, they tell it like it is, and they are ready. to. scrap. Be it through Buffy’s White Savior Complex, the revolution that is "Graduation Day Part 2," or the pure rage of Marcie in "Out of Mind Out of Sight," they are here to share in the solidarity of two BIPOC women talking about Buffy the Vampire Slayer, no holds barred. Join them for an Instagram Live Q&A on Buffering's IG (@bufferingcast) on Saturday, January 23rd at 2pm Eastern / 11am Pacific.  More information, suggested readings, and a viewing guide at: https://www.bufferingthevampireslayer.com/invisibipoc !!  This Episode Contains Spoilers Through Season 7 Of Buffy  !! +++ LOCATE YOUR HOSTS UPON THE INTERNET Alba Daza: albadaza.com + Instagram @alba.daza Mackenzie MacDade: Twitter @mackmactlksback + Instagram @mackmactalksback Buffering the Vampire Slayer: @bufferingcast on twitter, facebook, and instagram Learn more about our team at bufferingthevampireslayer.com/our-team  +++ Executive Producer: Alba Daza Producers: Mackenzie MacDade, Kristin Russo and Jenny Owen Youngs Edited by: Kristin Russo +++ We acknowledge that we and our team are occupying unceded and stolen lands and territories.
