After fighting a bunch of ghosts in the ethereal realm, Paul has returned to the show! But at the temporary cost of Dom. Will the Great Three ever be reunited?!

Yes, obviously. Next episode. But until then enjoy this nugget of a werewolf story. Chad and Paul talk about a werewolf that does nothing, a hidden murder plot within the book, how the moon exactly turns lycanthropes (and discover a new movie idea in the process), and dissect The Pick Up Artist. Kino.

And hey! We have a sponsor! Thanks to Audible for sponsoring this episode. You can get your own free audiobook trial (and support this show further) by going to audible.com/Goosebuds.

Plus we discover the newhit genre of entertainment and R.L. finally notices us!

Don't be too scared, Goosebuddies. Your ears don't deceive you; we're indeed talking about the OTHER big YA series of the 90s: Animorphs! Welcome to the first episode of the Ghoulastic Book Club, where we'll occasionally taste other book series in order to cleanse our palates in between R.L. Stine's master works. 

And joining us is our dear friend Holly Conrad (practical effects master, bird queen, and overall internet space commander) to talk about our favorite books from the series, what animals we'd like to infiltrate businesses with, and how this is the darkest YA franchise ever. Seriously, it gets messed up. Let us know what you think! Email us at goosebuds@gmail.com and interact on our subreddit at reddit.com/r/goosebuds.

If you had three wishes, what would you ask for? Unlimited wealth? Super strength? Maybe make all your fellow basketball teammates really tired? If you chose that stupid third option, then do we have the episode for you! In this episode the Goosebuddies follow the dumb adventures of "Byrd", a girl that doesn't think her wishes through. Or think about anything really. There are really a billion better wish choices than what the characters in this book make.

Plus the boys try to figure out how to eat Swamp Thing and we dive further into everyone's individual Culling plans (Which is what you all really want to know about.)

Thanks for listening! Be sure to follow us on Twitter @GoosebudsPod and talk about the show on reddit.com/r/goosebuds!

Prepare for a good old time with your grandma... Secret Agent Grandma! In our second Choose Your Adventure ride, Chad runs Paul and Dom through a world where your grandma is like James Bond, except with nothing interesting happening. What will happen when they board a train filled with mysterious trenchcoat-clad individuals? Join us for what may be the best/worst story yet. You won't believe where this story goes.

Somebody stop us! The Goosebuddies are back to discuss one of the iconic Goosebumps books- The Haunted Mask- with pal Kyle McVey (Grimm, Climax!, LOLJK). Just how does a haunted mask work? Can't you just cut that thing off or rub some lubriderm up in there and slip the baby off like a beer can turkey? And just how far down does this magic monster mask actually GO? Join us for the quintessential "kids doing mean pranks to each other" book in the franchise.

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

WATCH OUT FOR CARNIVAL CROCS!

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.
