Episode 31 - Superstar / Where the Wild Things Are (feat. Kenn Edwards)
Superstar Kenn Edwards returns, as Conversations with Dead People transitions into what it was always meant to be...Conversations about Jonathan Levinson! While discussing episode 417, “Superstar,” Paul indulges in many of his worst tendencies to go off on tangents, pondering the nature of magic as “the language of outcasts,” learning to be more accepting of Buffy Summers, and how Danny Strong has cast his own augmentation spell to become the Jonathan Levinson of the real world. And in 418, “Where the Wild Things Are,” we talk about the baffling absence of Oz, orgasm walls and other unsubtle metaphors, and Paul takes another unfair jab at Marti Noxon. Sorry.
Next: the long-awaited return of fan-scholar/scholar-fan Nikki Stafford as we discuss episodes 419, “New Moon Rising” and 420, “The Yoko Factor.”
