Do you know know your neighbors? Are you sure they're who they say they are? Perhaps they're actually spectres with a mortgage? In this episode the boys hit the books to read a tale of Hannah, a girl without any real friends, one really obvious twist, and a second one that reinvents how the afterlife works.

And hello to our new sponsor Audible.com! You can get a free audiobook and 30-day trial (along with supporting the show) by signing up at www.audibletrial.com/Goosebuds.

You read that title right. "Strained Peas" is a short story turned into a full episode of Goosebuds the TV Show. If you're considering conceiving a child yourself, you may want to listen to this first or at least make sure you use a very respectable hospital for your delivery. If you don't, you may end up with a monster child or worse yet... a 12-year old kid who looks 45.

Enjoy the episode everyone! Paul is caught up in the real world so you just have Chad and Dom this time. But we'll be back quickly for "The Ghost Next Door."

You know we had to cover Goosebumps' first feature film (assuming many more are to come). Well, we're not counting RL Stine's little-mentioned spy flick "The Man Who Bumped Too Much", but that's just because there are so many sex scenes in it.

But Dom, Paul, and Chad are here to share their experiences with the flick. Does it work for both older fans and new younger viewers? Is one of the films' characters actually stuck in a hell dimension? And Paul reveals his illegitimate children! All this and more as the Goosebuddies cover Jack Black and the crew making this generation's "Monster Squad".

Thanks for listening and Happy Halloween!

Note: We previously uploaded a version of this episode with a few audio errors. They should be fixed now!

Goosebuddies, this is no normal episode, this is a Give Yourself Goosebumps adventure! You've been demanding we try a Choose Your Own Adventure, and what better way than to read Book #1 in the series, Escape From The Carnival of Horrors. With Story Master Dom leading Chad and Paul through a crazy carnival, will the two survive? There's spooky rides, freaks, and a LOT of boring carnival games!

Let us know if you enjoyed this test episode of a possible format we could keep revisiting. You can reach us @GoosebudsPod on Twitter and on our subreddit /r/GoosebudsPod

We're back with a tale of snitchin'. Did you know if you see something? You should say something? Even if it's just a lonely old man who likes to eat bugs when he's alone? Chad, Paul, and Dom catch back up to talk about probably the worst girl in the series yet, the monster food chain, and tales of woe about a lost recording. Enjoy!

Slappy is here! Arguably the most beloved (and actually scary) books in the series, the boys tackle Mr Wood and his "brother" Slappy and the rival sisters who wish to become rival ventriloquists. Plus, Aaron Waltke (Paranoia Shoppe, Dreamworks Animation) joins us and blows the lid off the real message of this tale of haunted wooden people.

Fact: Everyone who has to choose between invisibility and flight as a super power would pick invisibility. Also Fact: everyone would use it for creepy stuff. On this episode, the boys discuss this important topic along with the other issues teens secretly "turning invisible" in the attic bring up. Enjoy! And thanks for everyone being wonderful.
