Meanwhile, in Buffy News
Happy 20th Anniversary, BtVS! (James Marsters offers the link -- I have not been able to make it work all day.)
More important to ThreeSourcers -- the tape and transcript are in (HT: @jtLOL).
Tim Ross's transcript rather rudely includes every "umm." The man is extemporaneously answering a rather serous question, I'll allow him a few cycles to compose. And he ends with a smack at the atheist Whedon being called "A God" by a fan.
But in-between, he makes a substantive case that Whedon was actually embracing and promoting socialism.
Whedon's socialist hero, John Reed, received horrible grades as a youth, was a socialist in college, considered a bully, committed several crimes, promoted the Communist movement, belonged to the Communist Labor Party, and was indicted for sedition.
