Goosebuds

Welcome to Goosebuds! A podcast where your hosts Paul Ritchey, Chad Quandt, and Kevin Cole dig into the Young Adult Literature of Goosebumps by R.L. Stine and give these tomes the deep critique and respect they deserve. Sometimes they get too scared and cover other adjacent 90s books and culture instead. Come join us and re-discover the stories you grew up with or jump in for the first time.

As we enter 2021 the podcast is getting some updates. Dom has retired his haunted jersey and we need a new Goosebuds on the team. The Buds #1 draft pick is... Kevin Cole!

If you somehow don't know Kevin already from his multiple guest appearances, designing kickass games like Space Kings, and editing like all our episodes, we hope you welcome him into your heart like we have. We're excited to have our dwarven friend on the show to talk about YA books and 90s culture.

In this episode Kevin, Paul, and Chad cover the 1997 Goosebumps book Don't Go To Sleep!, a story about a reality hopping dork who just wants to sleep in his guest bed. That's the hero's journey for this book-- dude wants to nap on a sleep number. We also discuss the process of welcoming Kevin, Franklin the bus driver and his many kids, BiBs, and Jumpers.

Book discussion starts at: 11:35

OFF TOPICS: The Quiverfull Movement, Lord of the Rings percentages, Redwall mouse feasts.

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.
