episode 223: Still Buffering: "The Babysitter's Club" (2020)

We all know and love the classic Babysitter's Club stories from many decades ago, but what if they were even better, cooler, smarter, and way more diverse and inclusive? Netflix answered that question, and we want to talk about it!



episode 222: Still Buffering: Glee (2009-2015)

When a young Rileigh was in middle school, all she wanted was to be in a show choir like the one full of thirty-year-olds on her favorite show: Glee. Let's revisit McKinley High and see what kinds of issues there were beneath all the musical numbers.



episode 221: Still Buffering: Weezer

The band we all know and love for its nerd rock aesthetic and its hits like "Buddy Holly" and "Say it Ain't So" was a crucial moment in music media for both Sydnee AND Teylor, so it seems about time to indoctrinate Rileigh into the fanbase, right?



episode 220: Still Buffering: Archie Comics

HAPPY MAXFUNDRIVE! To kick off this most wonderful and momentous time of year, we're diving into the wonderfully innocent world of Archie comics. They were Sydnee's favorite for forever, and now they've been mutated into Riverdale...what's going on with all that?



episode 219: Still Buffering: "Adventure Time" (2010-2018)

One of Rileigh's first favorite cartoons of her adolescence was all about a post-apocalyptic world full of princesses, stretchy dogs, and penguins...lots of penguins. So let's dive in! It's Adventure Time!



episode 218: Still Buffering: "Edward Scissorhands" (1990)

What would your hands be made out of if they were made to help with your biggest hobby? Paintbrush hands like Teylor? Phone hands like Rilo? Or Podcast hands (?) like Sydnee? Either way, they're talking about the guy with the hands made of scissors this week...and you will NEVER believe who almost played that role.

episode 217: Still Buffering: To All the Characters That Made Us Queer

Happy Pride! To celebrate, we're venturing a little off the usual path here at Still Buff to look at all the fictional characters throughout our young lives that showed us how to understand our own identities...or that we just thought were really pretty.

episode 216: Still Buffering: "Dawson's Creek" (1998-2003)

Sydnee finally convinced her siblings to watch one of her all time favorite teen dramas: Dawson's Creek. We're headed to Capeside this week to explore this ridiculously dramatic town full of teens with unusually large vocabularies...because we don't wanna wait, for our lives to be over....

episode 215: [FEED DROP] FANTI: Tired. (With Special Guest Dr. Joy Degruy)

(A feed drop of our fellow MaxFun show: FANTI) This week, Tre’vell and Jarrett move slightly away from format to discuss the recent events surrounding a Minneapolis, Minnesota man killed while in police custody and the civil unrest as a result of the department’s handling of the case. Plus, special guest Dr. Joy DeGruy joins the show!

episode 214: Still Buffering: "The Hunger Games" (2012)

Some tweens were Harry Potter kids, some were Twilight kids, but Rileigh was always a Hunger Games kid, through and through. So, of course she has to make both of her sisters revisit her favorite series and all about what makes it so great. Also, parallel universes?
