    DOUBLE LOVE: NIGHTMARE IN DEATH VALLEY PART ONE

    DOUBLE LOVE: NIGHTMARE IN DEATH VALLEY PART ONE

    We find the gang right where we left them in Death Valley - stuck between a storm and a cave full of skeletons and scorpions. Things are getting desperate for the Sweet Valley Six, as they try and make it across the desert with nothing to sustain them but a few granola bars. Unsurprisingly, they all start losing their minds - especially Bruce. Yes, it's the infamous snake murder scene! Elsewhere Liz and astronomer (?!) Ken rekindle their old flame, Jessica and Heather encounter some convicts - and we end on a very literal cliffhanger. Remember, if you can help us expand our SVU collection, which we would really appreciate, you can see what we need here and mail us at svhpodcast@gmail.com : https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1wgq5a-0C3zoTC065tOzJmSkI2kNBBe2K38Hu8jn8qg8/edit?usp=sharing

    DOUBLE LOVE: THE TREASURE OF DEATH VALLEY PART 2

    DOUBLE LOVE: THE TREASURE OF DEATH VALLEY PART 2

    Welcome back to Death Valley, where the gold is cursed and the hiking teens have lost their damn minds! After the gang take a detour to find a second batch of gold, they decide they have to head straight to Desert Oasis. But Jessica tricks foolish Todd into taking them even further out of their way in order to find the third gold hoard! Consumed by gold fever, soon the gang are throwing their cans of food away to make room for treasure, getting swept away by rapids and being pursued by cursed scorpions. Everyone is completely unhinged in this episode, including us by the end of it!

    DOUBLE LOVE: THE TREASURE OF DEATH VALLEY PART ONE

    DOUBLE LOVE: THE TREASURE OF DEATH VALLEY PART ONE

    Pack your rucksacks and fill your single water bottle, we're heading to Death Valley! Yes, having all placed highly in an essay competition which we can only assume some of them were forced to enter at gunpoint, the twins, Todd, Ken, Bruce and Heather are hiking through the desert without any adult supervision. It all sounds absolutely hellish and not just because Liz is in full good girl bossy mode. But the gang's squabbles are forgotten when they find a bag of possibly cursed gold nuggets in a disused mineshaft...

    DOUBLE LOVE: V FOR VICTORY PART TWO

    DOUBLE LOVE: V FOR VICTORY PART TWO

    Don your curly blonde wig and bring your mauve blusher, Todd, Ken and Winston (or rather Tilda, Kendall and Winnie) are all dragged up and ready to sneak into the CHRLDR compound! Some really do like it hot, and Ken in particular is loving his delightful new look. He and Todd are determined to win back the twins - but will they get the sticky end of the lollipop? Meanwhile Heather's secret is out and the SVH girls are determined to make a cheering comeback. If only they could spell... Shake your pom-poms in tribute, because it's the end of the cheerleading trilogy. Rah rah rah!

    FROM HERE TO SWEET VALLEY PART 3

    FROM HERE TO SWEET VALLEY PART 3

    Like Margo and Nora before her, Karyn has headed west to California so there's no new ep this week! But we do have the third installment of Anna's unhinged 2002 fanfic, From Here to Sweet Valley, which I think we can all agree is a more realistic depiction of the twins' adult lives than Sweet Valley Confidential. Liz reaches out to an old friend, Jessica has worrying thoughts about Bruce, and Winston attempts to flee his terrifying wife Lila. Listen to a sample here, and follow the link in the show notes to read more.

I have never loved a podcast like I’ve loved Double Love. Anna and Karyn are hilarious and I love their banter. Their recaps of both the books and the show (PBA member checking in!) are a lovely escape from the everyday grind. I have gotten so podcast burnt out over the last few years; however, Double Love never gets boring, never drags me down, and I genuinely look forward to every new episode.

Fantastic nostalgia!

Fair play ladies, making me laugh out loud on the subway looking mental. A great trip down memory lane. So great to reminisce on these amazingly great / questionable books with the Irish humor thrown in.

Hysterical & Completely Accurate

This show is incredible-you MUST give it a try if you have ever read these books in the 80s or 90s. The hosts are fun & entertaining. Their character descriptions alone were making me laugh out loud. How were any of these characters or storylines plausible to me as a kid? 😂
