The One Where Father Meets Daughter The Sassenach Files: An Outlander Podcast

Welcome back Obsassenachs! This week I’m discussing one of the Outlander Fandom’s all-time favorites, 409: “The Birds and The Bees”. This episode is jam packed with all the elements Obsassenachs have come to love: drama, sorrow, joy, and laughter. Join me as I discuss Sophie Skelton’s stellar portrayal of a young woman recovering from the trauma of sexual assault, Jamie and Bree’s burgeoning relationship and the tightrope they’re walking over the touchy subject of Frank Randall, and how a little communication could have gone a long way in saving Roger from his horrible fate. All this and much more is coming your way on another episode of The Sassenach Files!
