Episode Twenty-Two: Briana Buckmaster

Episode Twenty-Two: Briana Buckmaster

Briana Buckmaster is known around the world for playing Sheriff Donna – a funny, flawed, donut-loving, insecure, whip smart, and fiercely loyal law enforcement offer – on the juggernaut hit television series Supernatural. In her first Supernatural appearance, Sheriff Donna’s body fat was sucked out of her by a lipo-lovin’ monster, and in her second, she was fat-shamed by her ex-husband. Fans first fell head over heels for the super-relatable Sheriff Donna, and then they fell in love with Briana, who uses her social media platforms and convention appearances to explore super-relatable topics like women’s bodies, fat shaming, and self-worth, thus sparking life-changing, uplifting conversations. Briana and her Supernatural cohort Kim Rhodes have harnessed this energy into the #WaywardAF movement, raising boatloads of money for charity. In this contemplative and regularly hilarious episode, Briana talks about what it means to be #WaywardAF, about postpartum depression, about finding and using her voice, and about the impact that her Supernatural experience – and Sheriff Donna in particular – has had on her life. Stick around after the episode to hear a track from Briana’s first full-length album, Begin.
