Never About the Victims

If you're looking for comentary about everyone's favourite horror books for children, and 911 jokes which aren't about the victims, then look no further. Goosebuds have you covered.
I'm a big fan of the "friends hanging out", and Paul, Dom, and Chad do an excellent job in that regard. In between tearing down the works of R.L. Stein (he's had it too good too long) they make each other laugh, talk about Tim Allen, and tell jokes which are hardly ever about the victims.
I will say that if you want focused Goosebumps discussion, this probably isn't the podcast for you. The time spent talking about the books is probably matched by discussion of that weird Spiderman/Elsa thing, or the jokes which are mostly not about the victims.
Overall, an excellent podcast with great hosts. Highly recommended. Funny, informative, and not always about the victims.

Rekindling My Childhood Fascinations

To say that R L Stine is a literary genius is a stretch, but he was a crucial part for many of us growing up and acquiring an interest in reading.

Hearing the three Goosebuds laugh and joke their way through the many plot holes, nonsense cliffhangers, and woefully negligent parents of Goosebumps both rekindles fond memories and reminds me how low budget the TV series was.

(Also, I've been giving Goosebumps to the tweens and teens I teach English to due to it being relatively accessible. Goosebuds acts as a funny supplement to the brighter kids who are trying to learn and understand humour in English.)

A Pre-Eminent Podcast For the Most Prestigious of People

Goosebuds is the perfect podcast for any book lovers, and you don’t need to have read any of R.L Stein’s (or his legion of ghostwriters if Dom’s conspiracy theory is to be believed) books to enjoy it - the wonderful hosts always keep you up to speed. Chad, Paul and Dom inject plenty of humour into their analysis of the Goosebumps books, as well as some choose-your-own-adventure books and some from other series, like the incredible Animorphs! There’s also a spooky soundtrack that will scare the skeleton right out of you. But be warned listener, once you start listening, YOU’LL NEVER BE ABLE TO STOP <maniacal laugh>.
