It's Thanksgiving in Sunnydale, and much is happening: Detective Angel's lurking in the bushes, Anya is *so Anya*, and Spike is tied to a chair! It's not all fun & games though - there's a whole lot of white guilt, colonialism, and troubled history to examine in this holiday episode. We're thankful to welcome Coya White Hat-Artichoker, an enrolled member of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe, a writer, poet and speaker on issues regarding race, equity, Two-Spirit identity and sovereignty, onto the podcast to share her thoughts about the episode as well. Today we're discussing S4E8: Pangs.
