Sara is a huge Homeland fan. I’ve known that for years; she’s the real reason I watch the show and feel connected to the story. But what I didn’t learn until last fall was that she created a whole website and community around the show. It’s called Hell Yeah Homeland.
Part of my “preparation” for Sunday night’s episode was reading through posts about the season and then listening to a few of the podcasts. I’m consistently impressed by the quality of the writing. Sara and six others host the site. The “six others” was a fairly recent addition and much needed – it is a ton of work! and the additional perspectives have created some interesting and fun dynamics in the conversation.
Season 6 is almost to the halfway point and things are getting … tense in Sara’s world. While I was visiting, I was privileged to watch her interact with the site and her team members.
And on Monday, we recorded a podcast. For reals, y’all, it’s on iTunes
I listened to it for the first time yesterday and was impressed – not only with the quality of the production (that’s all Sara) but also our conversation. You can even hear my needles clicking (finishing up the second of Sara’s apartment socks).
The feedback from the community has been wonderful.

I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. I can’t imagine Sara being this passionate and dedicated to anything different.
