I had such a wonderful conversation with What’s New Nancy Drew, it was hard to cut anything out! In lieu of the world’s longest issue of Thursday Matinee, enjoy the entire spoiler-heavy chat I had with Sarah and Ben here!
Nancy Drew returns on October 8th at 9PM EST on the CW.
What led to your initial interest in the show? Why did you decide to start the podcast?
It was my idea to do one. Ben and I have been talking about doing a podcast for a while, and then I saw Nancy Drew was coming out. So, I texted him and said, “Hey, do you want to do this podcast? I know you don’t know anything about her but I know you like Buffy [the Vampire Slayer] and strong female characters.” He gave me a thumbs up and an hour later I texted him again that I was serious. He said, “Yes, I would love to do it.” Then, we jumped in. We watched Buffy and Veronica Mars together, so this is our type of show.
