We took the road less traveled by...but we just couldn't cut it!! This week, special guest Lucas Brown (@lokified) joins us to talk about The Path Not Taken, aka: 'Gyna on the Roof, aka The Princess Bride But Boring, an episode of Xena Warrior Princess that must have been a spec script that they just... felt like shooting, for some reason.  There's a sex joke in the first minute, though. Also, Allison had to cut about an hour of her ranting about a certain figure skating anime from this episode so as not to give you three hours of content to listen to, oh boy.

Be sure to keep listening after our sign-off for a special segment, courtesy of Lucas Brown. On his podcast, The Math of You, he creates cocktails inspired by his guests. He blessed us with not one but TWO cocktails inspired by the episode of Xena we all discussed together. Recipes are as follows:

The Red-Headed Bard

Sweet, bubbly and always ready for adventure, and befits the Battling Bard of Potidaea.

  • 1/2oz vodka
  • 1/2oz ouzo
  • 1oz creme de cassis
  • 2oz lemon-lime soda

Combine vodka, ouzo and cassis in a shaker of ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a cocktail glass and top up with lemon-lime soda.

B-Side: The Argo

Kicks like a goddamn horse. Keep it handy if you need to blow fire at someone to make them give up.

  • 1oz vodka
  • 1oz brandy
  • 1oz bourbon
  • 1/2oz ouzo
  • 1oz orange juice
  • 2oz lemon-lime soda

Combine orange juice, vodka, brandy, bourbon and ouzo in a shaker of ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a cocktail glass and top up with lemon-lime soda. Consume... carefully.

This week, special guest Elisabeth Dubois (@elisedubois) joins us to talk about Cradle of Hope, an episode that is shockingly not about the baby Gabrielle's going to have with a Lovecraftian Elder God in season 3. Uh, spoiler warning, I guess? Instead, we get a half-assed take on the Secret Origin of Moses, with Pandora and her box thrown in for good measure.

Plus, we debut a new segment: "The Dan Scrolls," in which former guest Dan Cassino (@dancassino) tells us all about the actual history and mythology that Xena brushes up against, none of which actually appears in the episode.

Were you ever confused about the definition of a breast dagger and/or the appropriate time to use one? Have you ever been wracked with guilt over the lasting damage caused by throwing a rock into a river? Have you ever wondered if facing off against your evil past-self would mean actually fighting yourself or just your own stunt double? Have you ever needed to report a dead highwayman, but just didn't know how? Did you ever want to know just how historically accurate Xena Warrior Princess was? Well, Chris and Allison are joined by special guest Dan Cassino (@dancassino) to answer these questions and many more on this latest episode of Xena Warrior Business, which focuses on Xena Warrior princess episode 3: Dreamworker.

Chris and Allison are back on track with Xena Warrior Princess episode 2: Chariots of War, an episode that contains no war and barely any chariots. Also, it's really....... straight. Straight as an arrow. Heterosexual to the max. It's weird. Listen in as we’re joined by special guest Erin Hunter (@peachkinn) to talk about this very, very hetero episode.

Chris and Allison have traveled to Xena's FUTURE!!! That is, to Season 2, episode 9: A Solstice Carol. Listen, if Xena: Warrior Princess the SHOW can travel through time (spoiler alert: it does. a lot.) then so can Xena Warrior Business the PODCAST. Continuity will have to wait, because Solstice night is almost here!! The show runners didn't know how long they had left, so they decided to cram not one not two but FOUR CHRISTMAS STORIES into one episode!! Put a chakram on your tree because it's snowing in New Zealand! Listen in as we’re joined by special guest Tana Ford (@tanaford) to talk about what it was like to watch Xena while growing into your adolescence.

After getting through her appearances on Hercules, Chris and Allison have finally arrived at the very first episode of Xena: Warrior Princess! Listen in as we’re joined by special guest Jordan D. White to talk about the barely-subtextual text of Gabrielle, the controversy surrounding Argo’s first appearance, and why the show should actually be called Xena: Warrior Tavern Heiress

Chris and Allison begin their odyssey back to a time of ancient gods, warlords and kings, when a land in turmoil cried out for a hero – but before we get to all that, we’ve got to get through the three episodes of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys that introduced us to our favorite Warrior Princess. Listen in as we go through Netflix histories, crush on Callisto, and start in on a mighty podcast forged in the heat of battle!
