Off the beaten path: “The Wayward Podcast” with Kim & Briana

by The Collected Mutineer

If you’re anything like us here at The Collective, you might have been fairly disappointed when Wayward Sisters wasn’t picked up by the CW, or any other platform. But never fear, “The Wayward Podcast” is here! Kim Rhodes and Briana Buckmaster, whom many of us know from Supernatural (and who would have been the leads of the WS show), have started recording themselves talking about anything and everything from the depths of Kim’s closet. It’s been years since I listened to any podcasts, but I was excited when I heard the news that two of my favorite women were going to continue to bring the Wayward AF realness to the table.

So far they have released three episodes via iTunes, and if you’re at all familiar with their panels or tweets or literally anything about them, the content won’t be a surprise. Kim and Briana are willing to talk about literally anything, even the things that those who identify as female have been told they should keep quiet about. Nothing is too big to tackle. Insecurity, fear, mental health, periods, motherhood, anxiety, curiosity…and that’s just stuff that gets covered in the first three podcasts.

At its core, “The Wayward Podcast” is an auditory embodiment (is that an oxymoron??) of the Wayward AF movement, a community that took off on Twitter when a handful of the fans first realized that there was something special about these women on a male-centric TV show. So what does that mean for you as a listener? It means that it’s okay to be lost. It’s okay to be off the beaten path, on the road less traveled, or even not on a road at all. It’s okay to be scared, it’s okay to be angry, it’s okay to be curious. We’re all in this crazy journey together, and I don’t know about you, but I’m glad I have my two TV moms with me to talk it all out without reservations.

Give “The Wayward Podcast” a try if you enjoy listening to rambling conversations*, stan the Rhodes & Buckmaster duo, or just want to feel like you belong to something bigger than yourself. Wayward AF is here for YOU.
