Brittany Ashley hails from Chicago where she studied sketch comedy writing and stand-up at Second City. After the debut of her sketch show ‘Hindsight For Sore Eyes’, Brittany continued to write and direct all-female sketch shows all over Chicago: ‘It’s Pronounced Kevin’, ‘Courtney Cox’s Bangs’ and ‘It’s Still Pronounced Kevin’. Now based in Los Angeles, she's most well-known for video content she created while at BuzzFeed Motion Pictures. Her credits there include: creating/writing a period comedy called “Lesbian Princess” about a princess in the Middle Ages who isn’t out to her royal parents, writing BuzzFeed’s first monetized web series which was #1 on iTunes for months titled “You Do You” and writing/producing viral short films about topics like abortion and emotional abuse (“Unaware” garnered over 10 million views and 300K shares in less than a week). She has recently acted in Gente-fied, a series by Macro, executive produced by America Ferrera, as well as SeeSo's Take My Wife. Brittany is a screenwriter with a passion for making content geared towards young women. She’s emerged as a powerful queer female voice in the digital media space. She wrote and hosted an LGBT news show on Logo and continues to write long-form essays for their editorial site. Now, focusing on longer-form narrative content, she’s currently in development for her first feature with Gunpowder & Sky and working on Netflix's Twelve Forever. If you own a television and are awake at the wee hours of the night, you may have seen Brittany's stand up on Last Call with Carson Daly. She has also been a festival queen: Crom Comedy Festival, She Devil NYC, Laughing Devil NYC, Chicago Women's Funny Festival and iO West Funny Fest.

Like Lorne always says: "Nothing will harsh the vibe of a killer karaoke rendition of "Superstition" more than a sanctimonious cousin dropping in from another dimension that you meant to leave behind forever!"

The absolutely brilliant LaToya Ferguson, Alanna Bennett, and Ira Madison III host today's conversation on race within the Buffy and Angelverse! This is the first in a larger series that will be produced and hosted by BIPOC Buffy fans here on the Buffering the Vampire Slayer and WOW — what a way to begin. These three TV geniuses bring their encyclopedic knowledge of both series to the table with questions like: What would have happened if Leonard Roberts played Riley? Why in the hell was Drusilla able to kill Kendra — an immensely powerful Slayer — with one filed f*cking fingernail? How would it have impacted the arc of the universes if Bianca Lawson had been cast as Cordelia? This. Episode. Fucking. Rules. Today’s conversation was curated, produced, and edited by LaToya Ferguson. You can follow LaToya at @lafergs on Twitter and you should also *immediately* tune into her podcast about The Vampire Diaries (YEAH THAT’S RIGHT) called The AMPire Diaries over at theampirediariespod.com Alanna Bennett is a culture writer and screenwriter who you can follow over at @AlannaBennett on Twitter and Instagram! Currently Alanna is writing for The CW’s Roswell, New MexicoIra Madison III would love if you’d just please leave him alone (he’s busy!), but if you INSIST he can be found at @ira on Twitter, @irathethird on Instagram; he also was a writer on Netflix’s Daybreak and is currently writing on Netflix’s forthcoming Q-Force-- Massive thanks to Mackenzie MacDade and Alba Daza who are working with us as consultants and facilitators!  Mackenzie MacDade is a 31 year old, queer woman of color, teaching artist, feminist, part time poet and general rabble rouser. She got her start in feminism from a book of feminist nursery rhymes, and her start in pop culture analysis from 9 years of homeschooling (translation: 9 years of TV and movie watching). A firm believer in queering the collective consciousness, she strives to inspire people to redesign their idea of normal and step out their comfort zone. She takes inspiration from Gertrude Stein, Buffy, Angela Davis, Faith and bell hooks. Someone once described her as “The love child of Angela Davis and Ru-Paul” and she thinks that just about sums it up. Alba Daza is a 27-year-old emerging Latinx writer/director/podcaster based in Montreal, Canada.  At 13 years old she discovered (through Buffy) that she wanted to be a screenwriter and hasn’t let go of that dream since. Her stories focus on telling and celebrating the stories of marginalized voices, giving them space to breathe and thrive. Through her work, she plans to decolonize pop culture and Slay white supremacy, just like Buffy taught her. Check out her podcast, “My Mama So…” which centers around appreciating the greatness of motherly figures: bit.ly/mymamaso --You can learn more about this new series and our other initiatives here at Buffering the Vampire Slayer & Angel On Top at bufferingthevampireslayer.com/justkeepfighting Logo by Kristine Thune
