Episode 97: From the thieves hole–an interview with ‘Outlander’ writer, Toni Graphia

In this episode, we share our interview with Outlander writer, Toni Graphia. Toni was kind enough to spend some time with us chatting about her career and specifically about her work on Outlander. 

Note: This interview comes to you straight from the thieves’ hole. As such, you will notice a bit of an echo. Because of this, we will provide a transcript of this episode soon.

Some of our favorite moments of this episode included Claire OWNING her witchiness.

"Witch I am!"

“Witch I am!”

"I curse you!"

Black Jack’s reaction to her curse is priceless.
