Amber has been a guest on the podcast before and this time she is joined by hosts Ian Carlos Crawford, Dana Piccoli, and LaToya Ferguson. In this episode they discuss Buffy of course and a whole lot more.
Amber describes her very first day working on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and encountering The Gentleman as she made her debut in the iconic Hush episode in Season 4. Her relationship with fans and why it's so important to her to have a genuine connection with them is something she misses due to the cancellation of conventions due to COVID - 19. The group talk about fashion on Buffy and the famous dress Amber wore in Once More With Feeling.
Amber talks openly and honestly about Tara’s exit and gives what in my opinion is a very fair and balanced view of the situation as she saw it. While not shying away from the fact mistakes were made and this storyline could and should have been done differently. She also touches upon why she opted not to return in Season 7.
It's not only Buffy that is discussed however as Amber talks about her ambition to be a show runner and spending her time in lockdown working on the pilot episode of The Witches of Echo Park TV series which will be based on her Echo Park Coven Trilogy of novels. She describes the challenge of adapting something from page to screen and also reveals a few snippets of information that I don't think fans have heard before which is very exciting. The Witches of Echo Park pilot is not the only thing Amber has been working on as she talks about writing A Murder To Remember, a movie based on a true crime story which had its premiere earlier this year on Lifetime in the USA.

Amber talks about a range of subjects honestly with compassion and fairness. This is why I personally admire Amber so much, not just for her talent for creating things and bringing characters to life but for being the genuine, kind and intelligent person she is. There are some serious topics tackled in this podcast but there are also some really funny moments. For all these reasons I’ve outlined above if you get a chance please give this podcast a listen.
