This week, we talk about rape and redemption in Buffy and beyond, distinctive voices on the small screen, cargo-cult storytelling, and play with some killer words.

Please note: this episode of StoryWonk Sunday contains some discussion of rape and sexual violence. If you want to skip it, jump ahead to forty-four minutes in.

Thanks to BA for the question!
