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.

The power of invisibility is a sinister one. 95% of being invisible is doing dirty or spooky stuff. If you meet someone who says if they could choose a superpower that they'd pick invisibility you should watch out. That's a hot tip from your pal The Goosebuds. 

This Goosebumps book is a real 'Best Of' RL's story tricks: obvious solutions, ignorant parents, and a twist ending that makes us scream (with rage). Enjoy the listen as the Goosebuds Boys cover this story of a camouflage clinger.

OFF TOPIC: The Secret of "Secretly Shaq" has been revealed, poorly, by Papa Johns. They stole this idea from us. So we propose an alternate version of the show. Steal this one, Papa. We dare you.

The boys are going to Camp Anawanna, summer home of counselor Ug, lovable dolt Donkeylips, and the sentient piece of human garbage Budnick. There are other kids too. One likes basketball. If you consider that a personality trait.

'Zeke the Plumber' (otherwise titled as 'Ghost Story') is Salute Yours Shorts most infamous episode. The tale of an undead plumber with a cut-off nose and his cursed plunger is certainly memorable, but is it as scary as we through? Kevin, Paul, and Chad discuss this episode of pranks, spiders, and ruffled potato chips. 

OFF-TOPICS: Kevin's Birthday Month begins now! A discussion of birthday existentialism follows. Every day is an internet holiday. Hot Dogs and the greatest meal that Kevin has ever eaten (it was a hot dog). #SaveGoosebuds

Well, technically Paul and Chad are, but you get to come along for the ride as Book Master Kevin leads us through a story about jungle zombies, dinosaur men, and frog wives. This may be the hardest CYOA book we've had on the show. Will the boys survive or at least find some ore?

BOOK DISCUSSION: 12:15

OFF TOPICS: college RAs, railroading in tabletop, Paul destroyed a kid in political debate, communal urinals and their dangers, Touchdown Jesus's, Notre Dame Evangelion.
