Upside Down and Halfway to Happyland puts various aspects of Joss Whedon’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel the series under the microscope, focusing on characters, specific episodes, some of the more eclectic topics and even listener tales about what drew them to the Buffyverse. Kim invites listeners and fans to be guests and contribute their stories, thoughts, and ideas to an episode where they are featured. Upside Down and Halfway to Happyland tries to capture the aspects of the Buffyverse that has people talking about the shows so many years after they’ve gone off the air.
Kim began this show in February of 2007, after guest hosting on another podcast where there were extensive conversations about the finer points of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. After that, she was challenged by yet another podcaster to start her own show and Happyland was born. Shortly after beginning Happyland, Kim ventured into starting up the Between the Lines projects with Tabz and hasn’t looked back since. Happyland has since become one of the many podcasts under Between the Lines Studios, which has joined Farpoint Media.
