21: 2x11 "Here She Comes...Miss Amphipolis"

She's beauty, she's grace, she's XENA: WARRIOR PODCAST. This week Vera, Katie, and Livy get their pageant on in 2x11 "Here She Comes...Miss Amphipolis," a deceptively light episode that has big ambitions, tackling gender and gay culture directly, sometimes successfully, sometimes not so much. We discuss artifice and performativity, why beauty pageants were such a *thing* in the '90s, and what happens to the male gaze when both the writer and director of the episode are female. Plus our french bulldog Phil has strong opinions about human trafficking.
