In this episode, we discuss recent announcements and Episode 102 “Castle Leoch.”

Correction: The flogging/whipping that took place in episode 102 at Lallybroch was not the first flogging that Jamie receives in a week. Both of those take place at Fort William.

Happy ‘Outlander’ Day!

We are finally here. We learned about the series “for real” in June of 2013. Sam Heughan was cast as Jamie (officially) on July 9, 2013. Then things got kinda crazy. I got the idea for a podcast somewhere in July (it’s dangerous to think too much around one’s birthday), and we started with Episode 1: Diving in!, on August 2 .

Caitriona Balfe was cast as Claire on September 11, 2013. The Picture of #SAMMF as #JAMMF (or “Jamie in the Hay”) broke the Internet on Thursday, October 24, 2013.  (And it’s been broken a few times since, right?)

We have had a tremendous year here at The Outlander Podcast. We’ve met some amazing people, including other fans, as well as some involved with production. And we’ve made new friends through it all. And we are finally HERE.

Saturday, August 9, 2014: The day Outlander will, for trusal, be loosed upon the world.

‘Outlander’ early-release of Episode 1, “Sassenach,” viewed almost 1 million times

'Outlander' opening title sequence

After releasing the first full episode of Outlander online August 2 for viewing on various platforms a full week before its premiere on Saturday, August 9, the numbers speak for themselves. According to Starz,

“As of August 7, the early initial data from some of the platforms where it was made available showed that the episode had been viewed 900,000 (897,372) times by more than 600,000 unique viewers (606,557).”

While we here at The Outlander Podcast certainly are fans of Diana Gabaldon‘s books, we are also very excited for the Starz series to officially begin. And continue. Hopefully for many years. And such great interest in a series that has not premiered on its own network is intriguing, and, we hope, promising.
