Supernatural Then and Now

Story Mill Media

In 2005, Sam and Dean Winchester set off on a road trip that would save the world and change television. For fifteen seasons and three hundred and twenty-seven episodes, the CW’s Supernatural (created by Eric Kripke) took audiences on a wild ride of family, fate, and faith with a rocking soundtrack and a seriously cool car. But that was then and now … it’s time for another ride.

Join hosts Rob Benedict (Chuck Shurley/God) and Richard Speight Jr (Gabriel and director of many episodes) for Supernatural: Then and Now, a winding road trip through every episode of this iconic series, one by one, every week, with guests each episode from the cast and crew that made the wild ride possible.

Buckle up for guests including Jared Padalecki (Sam), Jensen Ackles (Dean), Misha Collins, Ben Edlund, and Robert Singer (Executive producer), as well as many many more.

Our Editor's Take

The Supernatural Then and Now podcast is about the TV show—and its fans. Sometimes there are TV shows that last for many years. Yet they haven't penetrated the mainstream. These shows have a devoted following, though. That is the case with the suspense show Supernatural.

The program debuted on The CW in 2005, the same year as Grey's Anatomy. It remained on the air until 2020. Yet it never got media coverage like Grey's Anatomy, The Big Bang Theory, or other popular shows did. Supernatural did have a devoted audience who wanted to see what adventure Sam and Dean Winchester would have each week. Fans loved Supernatural's fantasy, the plotlines, and the Chevy Impala. The Supernatural Then and Now podcast is for those serious fans. But it's also for new fans who want to learn more about the program.

Cast members Richard Speight Jr. and Rob Benedict host the Supernatural Then and Now podcast. It's a combination of a recap and an interview podcast. And every episode has affection for the show.

The hosts start at the beginning, with the first episode of the TV show. Stars Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles, who portrayed Sam and Dean, speak on the podcast. They talk about life before getting on the show, how they auditioned, and what those early days were like.

This podcast is a definitive view of Supernatural. Most of the other cast members speak on the show. So does Robert Singer, the show's executive producer. Toby Lindala talks about the special effects makeup he did for the show. Episode directors and writers explain plot lines. Actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan discusses his plotline. Each episode has new details for superfans and casual fans alike.

Supernatural lasted on TV for 15 seasons. So the Supernatural Then and Now podcast could last as long, since it is recapping one show an episode. New episodes drop each week.
