Episode Discussions

In this section you’ll find my Outlander Episode Discussions with the BTS Lasses. Join me for lively discussions with my fascinating friends and fellow Outlander book and show fans: Karmen Schmidt, Pioneer Woman, retired professor of all fields of human anatomy, who also writes the Outlander Anatomy blog, Catherine Toomer, family physician, artist, musician, and contributor to Blacklanderz™, Antoinette Simmons, Criminal Defense Attorney, blogger – Thoughts on Parenting by a Black Mother, and tennis (Federer) fanatic, who loves to kick butt and take names!

We will be doing more discussions for Seasons 1-3, + those we missed in Season 4 over Droughtlander, so check here to see if new discussions have been added.
