Anna brings Surge on the great American 90's childhood literary journey that he missed out on. Right now we're going through RL Stine's Fear Street series in chronological order. It's evolved from having general discussions about the books to creating our own fan theory about the world of Fear Street.
We also start each episode with a review of other books we've read recently. We occasionally interview authors.
Episode 48 - Fear Street: 99 Fear Street: The House of Evil: The Third Horror
Fear Street review starts at 8:36.
Serge and Anna finally make it out of 99 Fear Street and the House of Evil trilogy unscathed. We can't say the same for all the characters in the book.
Anna reviews C Pam Zhang's "How Much of These Hills is Gold" at the start of the cast.
Episode 47 - Fear Street: 99 Fear Street: The House of Evil: The Second Horror
Anna and Surge make their way back to 99 Fear Street, this time with the McCloy family. Except this time, instead of a haunted house, we have to sit through Brandt's dating simulation. Oh joy!
Surge reviews NK Jemisin's "The City We Became" at the start of the cast.
Episode 46 - Fear Street: 99 Fear Street: The House of Evil: The First Horror
Surge and Anna embark on a new Fear Street trilogy, a reader's equivalent of an open house as we tour 99 Fear Street. We noped out as quickly as we could, but the Frasier family wasn't as lucky. Join us as we recount the Frasier Family folly from their time in the House of Evil.
Anna reviews the latest book in the Pendergast series, Crooked River, before our Fear Street discussion.
Episode 45 - Fear Street Super Chiller 7: Cheerleaders 4: The New Evil
To no one's surprise, especially not Surge and Anna, the Evil that has haunted Corky Corcoran for an entire trilogy is back. Join us as we discuss this complete non-surprise.
Anna reviews the first book in Maggie Stiefvater's new Dreamers trilogy, "Call Down The Hawk" and the start of the episode.
Fear Street discussion starts at 8:48.
Episode 44 - Fear Street Super Chiller 6: The Dead Lifeguard
Serge and Anna are starting the New Year off right with their long awaited discussion of Fear Street Super Chiller: The Dead Lifeguard. Things aren't what they seem! Or are they?
Anna starts the episode off by reviewing Leigh Bardugo's adult novel debut, Ninth House.
Episode 43 - Fear Street 26: The Mind Reader
Surge and Anna are back and this time, they're discussing Fear Street: The Mind Reader. Despite what the title says, there's surprisingly little mind reading actually happening in the book.
Before the Fear Street discussion which starts at 10:19, Anna reviews the book "Red, White, & Royal Blue" by Casey McQuiston.
Great podcast keep up the good work. We miss you guys.
More Bingeworthy Than Netflix
I love listening to these while running at the gym. I enjoy how Surge and Anna can go back and forth with each other especially when romance topics come up and they have differing opinions and get SO heated over trash teen fiction. Keep up the great work💝
