03: 1x05-06 "The Path Not Taken" & "The Reckoning"

On this week’s XENA: WARRIOR PODCAST, we confront Xena’s ultimate weakness: hot tubs! Xena’s penultimate weakness, btw, is men with well-muscled arms, which makes this pair of episodes, 1x05, “The Path Not Taken” and 1x06, “The Reckoning,” quite the trial for her. (Not a trial for Vera, Katie, and Livy, though; we loved every minute of these two very strong stories.) Join us as we discuss misogyny as comedy device, the twelve-step program that is the warrior’s path to redemption, and why Ares is totally the Christian Grey of the Xenaverse (though his Red Room is a bit green...screened).
