177: Supernatural (with Meghan Fitzmartin)
Supernatural is one of the longest running Monster of the Week shows on TV, and with that much content, we need an expert. Thankfully, Supernatural’s own Meghan Fitzmartin joins us to talk about the cosmology built over 15 seasons, what it’s like writing for television, and finishing something you love. Content Warning: This episode contains conversations about or mentions of hell/demons/damnation, threat of violence, famine, death (and resurrection), and child endangerment.
