    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.

    Ep 92 - Chicken Chicken (w/ Jacquie Baker)

    Paul and Chad are joined by comedian and star fighter Jacquie Baker (The Incredible Shrinking Matt & Jacquie, Spooky Squad) to talk about one of the strangest books in the Goosebuds bibliography. Experience the horror of slowly turning into a flightless bird and then refusing to tell anyone about it! Hey Goosebuddies, if you're ever cursed by a witch or warlock, reach out to a friend or loved one; tell them you're becoming a farm animal. We hope you enjoy this story of coder parents, cabincore lifestyles, and finger-lickin' fear.
    OFF-TOPICS: Web rings, Flat Earth Gallagher, Indiana fight songs
    BOOK DISCUSSION begins: 19:00

    Ep 91 - How I Learned To Fly (w/ Kevin Cole)

    Ep 91 - How I Learned To Fly (w/ Kevin Cole)

    One of Chad's greatest fears is being suddenly detached from Earth's gravity and flung into space. So we read a fun book that totally doesn't evoke any of those terrors! Paul and Chad are joined by game master and editor Kevin Cole (Space Kings, Pretend Friends, SuperTry Studios) to discuss this tale of forbidden flying techniques. Have a good holiday, everyone. Stay safe!
    Book discussion begins: 15:35
    OFF-TOPICS: Lou Bega's Mobile Bodega, More JuiceTalk, The Adventures of Pete & Pete

    Ep 90 - Vampire Breath (w/ @Bobdunga)

    Pee-ew! This book stinks! But that doesn't mean we don't have a blast discussing it. Paul and Chad are joined by nostalgia historian Raven Simone (aka @Bobdunga92) to cover this tale of hidden basement tombs, the time traveling power of smoke bombs, and why being a vampire is better than human reality. Enjoy!
    OFF TOPICS: The deep lore of Talespin X The Jungle Book, Beyblade Assassins, and Leg-Arm Beast Humans.
    Actual book discussion begins at 11:40.

    Ep 89 - Shivers: The Awful Apple Orchard

    Ep 89 - Shivers: The Awful Apple Orchard

    Happy Halloween, Goosebuddies! The boys take a detour into the horrifying and grisly realm of Shivers - a knock off Goosebumps series. This book "The Awful Apple Orchard'' isn't lying with its title but we had a great time discussing this story of ghost cars, apple cider, and sudden grisly child gore.
    OFF-TOPICS: The invention of fear, ghost screams, Destination Truth, and how there hasn’t been a funny joke on Twitter since 2012.

Only 1 Gripe

Awesome show, really fun and good charisma from all involved. My one issue is they said people who would choose being invisible over flying are inherently bad as there are no good uses for invisibility. It’s misguided and misinformed and I will not stand for this slander.

This show is a riot. Highly recommend.

Fun but one problem

It seems like Dom wants to end every adventure episode as quickly as possible, I wish they would stick to the books a bit more as theyre very fun to listen to. I havent bothered listening to non adventure episodes, except for theRPG one that was awesome. There is a lot of filler in the beginning but its usually quite interesting.

All of this podcast

Been listening for a long time, I was going to amend my previous 5 star review. I just loved y’alls discussion about R2D2 sucking your cocks. Best podcast ever, it always feels like I’m listening to RISK! Or Bawdy Storytelling. Thumbs up emoticon!
