We’re Girls Like Us: a podcast about The Clique, Pretty Little Liars, and other YA books. Hosted by Chicago writers/comedians/girls, Frannie Comstock and Sophie Krueger, each week Girls Like Us dives in to a facet of YA fiction. Walking the fine line between comedy and analysis, Girls Like Us asks the question, "What does a Literature degree get you?" and answers it with, "A podcast about books for teen girls." Expect guests-a-plenty, ranging from comedians to authors and everything in between. New episodes every Monday. GLU is currently a member of the Frolic Podcast Network by Frolic media!

Only good if you like good things

As someone who devoured (and was basically indoctrinated by) The Clique books as a kid but had no one to talk to about them, this is the podcast I didn’t know I needed! The hosts are witty and relatable and it’s so fun to relive these books with them. Would definitely recommend!
Feeling so seen by this podcast, Frannie and Sophie deliver funny, heartfelt, and scathing takes on The Clique (and any other topics they choose to tackle). I’m so glad I started listening to this podcast, and I’m excited to see where it goes next!
