    Put on your sunscreen, we're going tropical! Paul, Chad, and Kevin cover the Give Yourself Goosebumps book The Twisted Tale of Tiki Island. This is Kevin's first time as Book Master and he brings his game designer skills to the role. Can Paul & Chad navigate the exotic location, that totally isn't just a tourist resort in Hawaii? Get ready because THE CURSE STARTS RIGHT NOW!

    Ep 96 - The Blob That Ate Everyone

    Ep 96 - The Blob That Ate Everyone

    The Blob That Ate Everyone has arguably one the best Goosebumps covers, with one of the best taglines, but... is it one of the best stories? No. It really isn't. Even so Paul, Chad, and Kevin have a great time talking about magical typewriters that is also somehow the precursor plot to the Goosebumps movie.
    OFF TOPICS: The Hobbit dwarves' desirability rankings, a comment on our increased Tolkien-verse conversations, "Buca Di Pepe" and how to impress your friends at Brazilian steakhouses.

    Ep 95 - Don't Go To Sleep!

    Ep 95 - Don't Go To Sleep!

    As we enter 2021 the podcast is getting some updates. Dom has retired his haunted jersey and we need a new Goosebuds on the team. The Buds #1 draft pick is... Kevin Cole!
    If you somehow don't know Kevin already from his multiple guest appearances, designing kickass games like Space Kings, and editing like all our episodes, we hope you welcome him into your heart like we have. We're excited to have our dwarven friend on the show to talk about YA books and 90s culture.
    In this episode Kevin, Paul, and Chad cover the 1997 Goosebumps book Don't Go To Sleep!, a story about a reality hopping dork who just wants to sleep in his guest bed. That's the hero's journey for this book-- dude wants to nap on a sleep number. We also discuss the process of welcoming Kevin, Franklin the bus driver and his many kids, BiBs, and Jumpers.
    Book discussion starts at: 11:35
    OFF TOPICS: The Quiverfull Movement, Lord of the Rings percentages, Redwall mouse feasts.

    Ep 94 - Monster Blood IV

    Ep 94 - Monster Blood IV

    Monster Blood, the iconic Goosebumps goop, returns for this final book in the mainline series. Is it really Monster Blood though or just a can of blue mutant warcrimes? Chad, Paul, and Dom cover this tale of wacky watersports, dogs in distress, and sloppy science. While you listen, we ask you to consider: what do the 'Sluglins' look like? Are they adorable? Gremlin-y? Does any answer excuse Kermit and the other kids being complete idiots? Regardless we have a blast discussing the book and share big updates for the podcast as one of our friends heads out for distant lands. We love you all.
    Book discussion starts at 10:30
    OFF TOPIC: Update on Dom's dealing with 'The Family', the origin of Kilroy, The Waldo Cult.

My favourite geese boys 🦆

I never read a single Goosebumps book growing up (i was scarediest) but you can bet your sweet booty that I listened to every-single-one episode to know what I missed out on! Turns out it wasn’t much but these boys got me hooked since episode numero uno! Wether you are interested in learning sometimes a lil’ too much information on three strangers’ lives, or in some brutally honest reviews on books you read-or not- as a kid: this podcast is for you! It’s free!! (You can also support them on Patreon to get some extra content..😏😏) LET THAT SLINK IN, KIDS!
