Teylor Smirl and John Holt ask you to read along as they explore books that challenge. We align our thinking with Kafka when he said “I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound or stab us. If the book we're reading doesn't wake us up with a blow to the head, what are we reading for?" Tune-in each week for a lively discussion of books followed by conversation with guests from all backgrounds who share their experiences and enrich the reading.

Well, Sydnee finally realized what she has done in bringing Jewel to the discussion table this week. Upon Rileigh's first-ever listen and Teylor's first re-listen in forever, the siblings dive right into all the angsty, earnest lyrics we love from Jewel, as well as all the songs and hits that don't exactly stand the test of time. Also, bonus secret…
 
It's apparently the unofficial Buffy appreciation week, at least, Stacey Abrams said so, so it must be true. This show has long been a favorite of all three Smirls, so come sing and obsess over the whole series with us! Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by NouvellasBy Rileigh Smirl, Sydnee McElroy, Teylor Smirl
 
2020 is the only year in which we could long to live in a fictional serial killer's universe, and here we are. The Scream movies taught us all the rules of scary movies and exactly how to break them, so it only fits to wrap up spooky season with this series. What's your favorite scary movie? Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas…
 
Well, the day has come. I guess we all knew we would end up here at some point, right? None of us thought it would happen in the first year, but I guess it was its time. We're diving head first into the world of sexy, sparkling, baseball playing vampires, and Teylor has never experienced any of it, until NOW. Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by N…
 
As our first journey into the world of manga here on Still Buffering, Teylor is introducing us to one of their favorite stories from their college years: The Bug Boy! Also, we're introducing yet another iteration of our show, "To Bils and Uh Tedd!" Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by NouvellasBy Rileigh Smirl, Sydnee McElroy, Teylor Smirl
 
As a first in Still Buffering history, both Rileigh and Sydnee are sharing their excitement over a show they both loved that Teylor has never seen: Veronica Mars! She's everyone's favorite angsty teen private investigator, and her show has spanned all of our generations...but can we talk about the ending of that reboot though? Music: "Baby You Chan…
 
Before there were teen heartthrobs and boy bands and scrunchies...there were our favorite cartoons! One of Teylor's has always been the story of that lil toaster that could, but it's actually a little bit darker than any of us remembered. Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by NouvellasBy Rileigh Smirl, Sydnee McElroy, Teylor Smirl
 
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. Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by NouvellasBy Rileigh Smirl, Sydnee McElroy, Teylor Smirl
 
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. Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind…
 
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.... Music: "Baby You Change Your Mind" by Nouvellas…
 
(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! (Note: This e…
