BUST was lucky enough to talk to the brains behind the web series and ask her a couple of questions.
BUST: How did you think of the idea for the web-series?

Whether it's witchcraft or bitchcraft, when it comes to television and film anything involving wizardry and badass ladies is completely up my alley - however many of these characters come in Sabrina Spellman blonde-hair-blue-eyed packages.
Not to hate on the Sabrinas, Madison Montgomerys, or Hermione Grangers of the world, but I think it’s time we make some room for some WOC witches to tear shit up, because I mean, seriously, where would we be without Tituba ... Read More

I'm not sure what it is, but I have a very deep love for entertainment that features a woman somewhat hopelessly trying to float amid the wreckage of her totally normal life--and if she's just barely keeping her head above water, I fall in love within thirty seconds.
I always find myself more inspired by less-than-inspiring portrayals of women's lives. When shows depict women that make it to work every single day no more than five minutes late with perfect hair, ... Read More

With the second series of Girls wrapped up, it's apparently time for bros to take over. The BUST office is cracking up over this new YouTube series, Bros, which spoofs Dunham's Girls, focusing instead on a group of douchey dude-friends living in Brooklyn.
The bros encounter plenty of the same difficulties as Hannah and co.--parent and career troubles, fashion disasters (our favorite quote: "It looks like you skinned a mermaid")--and some ... Read More

I forget that men are also affected by the culture that preaches coupling and romance over single life. Though the statistics are proving that we—lady and boy—Americans are living la vida solo more and more, our cultural anxieties to find “the one” and to be in a “together” has not stopped. And that is where New York based comedian/actor/writer Rob Michael Hugel comes in. He takes the deep neurosis of a young, single, ... Read More
