A weekly podcast about young adult literature, their filmic adaptations and everything in between.
In My Skin
In this week's episode, we're discussing Kayleigh Llewellyn's semi-autobiography, In My Skin, which features an outstanding performance by Gabrielle Creevy. CW: mental illness, sexual assault, homophobia
The Darkest Minds
We're feeling a little super powered as we tackle Alexandra Bracken's 2012 dystopian YA The Darkest Minds, as well as Jennifer Yuh Nelson's 2018 film adaptation.
The Serpent King (Book Club #9)
It's time for the November book club on Jeff Zentner's realist YA book, The Serpent King (2016)
The Baby-Sitter's Club S02
As an extra special bonus, Brenna and Joe discuss all eight episodes of S02 of Netflix's The Baby-Sitter's Club.
Ready Player One
You like the angry episodes, right? Well good because we're getting real mad and annoyed at Ernest Cline's 2011 debut novel Ready Player One, as well as Steven Spielberg's 2018* film adaptation
(*Not 2019, Joe!)
Ronny Chieng: International Student
We're headed Down Under for this week's minisode on comedian Ronny Chieng's one season sitcom: Ronny Chieng: International Student.
Intelligent, witty & fun
An insightful and enjoyable critical analysis of YA texts and their influence. The hosts are a delight and have a wealth of varied experience and perspective. Although they take all topics seriously, and must put in long hours of work, there is fun and joy to the episodes.
I truly look forward to this every week. I especially appreciate the continued conversations and recognition around diversity, class and gender.
