In Still Dead, story expert Lani Diane Rich and southern fried scholar Dr. Kelly Jones host a new Angel podcast designed specifically for people who love Angel and want to ride through it again quickly, and people who bounce hard off of Angel. We'll designate which episodes are "Watchers" (ones you should actually watch) and which ones are "Not Watchers" (ones you can skip). We'll get you up to date on the goings on for the episodes you can skip, and we'll rave with you over the ones you should watch.

Insightful, funny, deep
Listening to Lani and Kelly discuss each episode has brought me so much joy and insight into my own life. I love how they call out the misogyny and patriarchy while recognizing that it was a part of the overall culture at the time. I can’t wait to continue with them through this journey and see how they re-react to each episode going forward! It is so clear to me how much fun they have making each episode. Also, hearing Lani laugh delights me!
Insightful take on a great show
This show does a great, deep dive into Angel. The hosts also are smart and insightful, and the conversation is always very rich and layered. I am especially delighted by how much Dr Jones LOVES the show.
Smart and fun!
Still Dead is truly delightful. The framework leads to excellent and nuanced discussion, with both hosts bringing their specialties and expertise. I enjoy breeding through the series with watchers and skippers. It’s a 6 on my PH scale 😉
