Jaime hears the whole truth and gives Claire a hand.
Claire and Geillis stand trial for having vaginas and Ned shows up to help
The Duke of Sandringham returns to steal this show and Laoghaire continues to be the absolute worst.
Jaime makes choices, Claire prefers to stand, and ugh Laoghaire is back.
The ladies of the Drunkcast step away from the Outlander season one re-watch to offer some suggestions on other shows you might want to check out, including Grace and Frankie, Atlanta, and the best television show in the history of the world.
Some shit happened in the USA this week, so be prepared to hear us be sad about it. But also...our Dungeons and Dragons-inspired midseason awards are on point.
Frank gives up, Claire learns to fight, and Jaime swashes a most excellent buckle.
Back and forth through time, Claire is torn between two incredibly handsome men. WHAT WILL HAPPEN?!?
Allison and Julie are joined again this week by our pal Amelia Buzzell, who was, like us, disappointed that there wasn't more Ned Gowan in this episode. Instead, it's the Tobias Muhzmenzsz show, and while this one probably won't end up on your list of favorite episodes any time soon, he's very good at his job, which is acting.
Thanks for joining us, Amelia! And cheers for not putting the claret at risk.
Enjoy! Well, as much as you can, what with the flogging.
Claire's hitting the road in a fetching fur-cuffed jacket, ready to help Dougal and his merry men (notably the amazing lawyer Ned Gowan) collect rent. You know what that means?

You're listening to our podcast
which has no script
See if anything comes of it,
instead of the usual shit.
First shot Julie,
who is really pissed that we're making so many musical jokes!
Ah, I give up. Anyway, we spend a lot of time rhapsodizing about Ned Gowan, too much time making musical theatre jokes, and the whole time basking in the glorious presence of special guest Amelia Buzzell, a Chicago-based writer and performerr who also bakes delicious things. She also brought along a visual reference, which you'll want when you listen. Enjoy!
The last few episodes of Outlander have spent lots of time talking about a Gathering. Did you catch it? Maybe? Once or twice? Maybe you created your own Gathering drinking game? We bet Claire did.
Anyway, the big event arrives at last, and many interesting things happen, but come on:
Allison has recovered from having one ear nailed to the pillory* and the Outlander season one train is a-rollin' once more. She really thinks she ought to have toughed it out, but we can't all be Claire now, can we?
* being a wimp with a very bad cold
Expect lots of talk about outerwear, the seductive powers of Geillis Duncan, and how awesome Murtagh is (as per usual). Also something to expect: our S1E4 episode (a.k.a. "The Gathering") TOMORROW.
Our rewatch of Outlander season one continues with the episode where they spend a huge amount of time taking about what's going to happen in the next episode. It's annoying but who cares because ASKtsz'DJASKLDJASKLoJDAKLS]JD Geillis.
Lotte Verbeek, we love you.
As always, if you dig the show, please consider writing us a review somewhere, subscribing on iTunes, following us on one of our various social media handles, or backing us on Patreon. And no matter what, thanks for listening — you lot are a bit of all right, you know?
Well, here it is! The first episode of our Outlander season one coverage. It just so happens that it's also the first episode we've done hungover, which is fitting, as Claire spends so much of season one hungover herself.
A few things are different this time around. We're including a tiny spoiler section at the end of each episode, so if anyone's watching Outlander for the first time they can remain relatively unspoiled. (That said, we're only human, so something may slip past us every once in awhile.) Also, we're now releasing our content every Wednesday, unless you're a supporter on Patreon, in which case you'll get access to that sweet sweet episode a day early. Patreon patrons also get bonus content from time to time. Right now, it's access to our live show at Wizard World Chicago. The audio quality's bunk, but the jokes are on point.
In your face, Droughtlander!
