We’re seeing double this week on XENA: WARRIOR PODCAST! Vera, Katie, and Livy catch a doppelgänger double-header of 3x08 “The King of Assassins” and 3x09 “Warrior…Priestess…Tramp.” Is it weird to watch a bunch of comedies in the middle of the pitch-dark Rift saga? Yup! Are those comedies funny? ...Yup? Admittedly it’s a mixed bag with “Assassins,” but at least it features the easy-going bromance of Bruce Campbell and Ted Raimi, plus the utterly magnificent Gina Torres as Cleopatra. But “Priestess” is divine from beginning to end. We discuss its introduction of a new Xena doppel, Leah, who sounds like Church Lady if Church Lady were from Mars, its exploration of womanhood and sexual mores so characteristic of the multi-Xena comedies, and its many, many masturbation jokes. Real talk: if Xena deflowers Leah, does that count as self-love?

The power, the passion, the podcast!
