The Vampire Hype podcast is joined by two special guests for an in-depth discussion about the True Blood finale, some Breaking Dawn movie news and The Vampire Diaries season 4!

Imprint’s Pamela Gocobachi is with us this week to address listener concerns about the future of the show and to share her thoughts on True Blood and some recent Twilight news. We are also joined by Gwen Duenner, who brings the True Blood book knowledge to the discussion of the season 5 finale!

This show is divided into four sections: The Vampire Diaries news (6:20), the True Blood finale discussion (16:59), Twilight: Breaking Dawn: Part 2 news (47:40) and Listener Feedback (59:30). You can listen to the whole thing or skip to the segments that interest you!
