The Best Goosebumps Podcast

The hosts are intelligent, entertaining, and funny. Best of all, they actually discuss the books.
Most goosebumps related podcasts are more focused on trying to be funny than actually talking about the books.

Like most people interested in Goosebumps I collected the books as a kid but didn’t read all of them. My curiosity as to what was actually in most of these stories has led me to revisit them. This is the perfect podcast if you’re curious about these books but don’t have time to read all 972 of them.

Excellent podcast!

As a huge Goosebumps fan growing up, this is the podcast I need right now. The expansion of my understanding of these stories that this podcast brings is so awesome! Their analysis goes deep and is very interesting always. Great stuff give it a listen! It’s also just so much fun to experience these stories again in any capacity. My mind was blown by the end of the first episode. Keep listening its good audio entertainment!
