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.

Why are we watching an old Nick Jr show? Because it was written by Jovial Bob Stine! Before Goosebumps was a thing on bookshelves, R.L. Stine was head writer on this wacky, non-educational children's show Eureeka's Castle. Chad, Paul, and Kevin are joined by guest Josh Henderson (Pretend Friends, M-Class Podcast, Continue?) to cover the first two episodes (that couldn't be bothered to have proper titles). 

We discuss the show's Lynchian b-roll, our favorite character Hose Boy, Batly's hipster status, and how Eureeka and her friends are all really servants of the giant.

OFF TOPICS: Josh and Chad fall in love over Incubus, more quicksand debate, The Charlemagne Maneuver

We swear we did our homework; a very nice A+ papier-mâché volcano but a galactic cruiser (stuck on shrink mode as often happens) crashed into our basement and things escalated from there. 

Paul and Chad are joined by writer Marly Halpern-Graser (Thundercats Roar, Aquaman: King of Atlantis, Mad) to talk about beloved Bruce Coville's first book in the miniseries known as Rod Allbright's Alien Adventures: Aliens Ate My Homework. This book has it all: martial arts aliens, Star Trek paralells, surprisingly good discussion about gender and pronouns, the tempation one feels to shake the tiny people in your lunchbox...

OFF TOPICS: none really, we get into the book immediately!

In this episode Chad, Kevin, and Paul review R.L. Stine's Goosebumps 2000: Headless Halloween. It's a story about sociopath teen Brandon Plush who feels no remorse about the lives he destroys. Brandon Plush's endless campaign of mean pranks finally runs into the (literal) dead-end that is Raven's Ravine, but what horrors lurk on the other side? Worm-filled doughnuts for one. Gross. Enjoy this episode and make sure you never make fun of someone for owning a van.

OFF TOPICS: our humble little studios, Who is American McGee?, the Doom Johns, Kevin's secret itch.io, Tarnished Jeff Foxworthy

In this episode Chad, Kevin, and Paul review the Goosebumps TV mini-series 'Chillogy'; a collection of three episodes centered around the magical miniature company town of Karlsville. These stories are not based on R.L. Stine's books making these pretty unique to compare to the rest of the series. Have you heard the good word of the Holy Chillogy? Let Karl Knave into your heart and you will be preserved forever in plastic. Or turned into a piganoid. Or beheaded by a baseball. Kinda whatever Karl is into at the moment. Give yourself to the episode and all will be good in this tiny model town.

OFF TOPICS: Bugs: Satan's first ally, The Bible New 52

The Ghoulastic Book Club returns to cover our favorite 90's YA book series about child soldiers: Animorphs. In this episode we cover K.A. Applegate's Megamorphs #3: Elfangor's Secret. While Paul fights his way back to our timeline Kevin and Chad are joined by guest Kayla Cline (Spooky Scouts,The Rite of Rumble: Wrestling with Demons) to talk about this wild time-traveling tale. Can the Animorph Kids save George Washington? Will they murder Adolph Hitler? Is morphing into a dolphin a reliable treatment for seeing your teenage love die in the cold waters of The Delaware? Plus learn the exciting backstory of The Ellimist: The Galaxy's First Pro Gamer. And remember the only balm against fascism is the refreshing taste of Mountain Dew Baja Blast.

OFF TOPICS: Guitar Hero: Sea Shanty Edition, dwarven barbershop quartets, Kayla's legal troubles with Fall Out Boy, Wrestling With Demons, wearing our own merch.

Book discussion begins at 11:20

Chad & Kayla's comic The Rite of Rumble is being funded on Indiegogo. Check it out: https://igg.me/at/wwdcomic01/x#/

The parents are away for this Adventure! episode and the boys need a babysitter. Preferably not one that's secretly a rat monster. That would be nice. Also one that lets us watch R-rated movies and won't tell the adults about it.

In this episode Paul, Chad, and Kevin read through R. L. Stine's Give Yourself Goosebumps book Attack of the Beastly Babysitter. The professionals at KidScare have a full entertainment facility to entertain us and our terrible brother Stinko. Hopefully we can avoid the Switch Cheese and the Mask of Worms. Enjoy!

OFF TOPICS: Wasting water in Fury Road, Paul's Zamboni Sacrifice, The Ice Church

Are You Terrified Yet? This is the question R. L. Stine asks of us in this (and every) Goosebumps book. In this episode Chad, Kevin, and Paul read the Goosebumps 2000 book where stuttering Craig deals with a series of awkward social obligations and falls into gambling addiction despite a complete misunderstanding of the concept 'Double or Nothing'. In this book, the power of an attractive person believing in you can move mountains. Also we learn about Chad's secret double life as Chopper the Presbyterian.
 
OFF TOPICS: Telling our loved ones about this show, motorcycle propaganda, Elon's underground traffic jam, lesser-known Stallones

Pack your bags once again, Goosebuddies! Paul, Chad, and Kevin head to R.L. Stine's Goosebumps 2000 story Fright Camp; a poorly run summer event hosted by legendary director (and likely R.L. Stine self-insert) R. B. Farraday! Farraday's frights include sexual kappas, shooting gorillas, and vomit balloons. How does this story stack up compared to other Camp greats? Does R.L. push the 'twist' button a few too many times? Either way, enjoy the episode.

In this episode the Goosebuds Boys are joined by the hilarious Jordan Morris (Bubble, Jordan Jesse Go!) to discuss a story about revenge and the magic power all birds have. In R.L. Stine's book 'Revenge R Us', kids are  sociopaths who don't blink at the thought of a family member ripping their own skin off for a prank. The magic rules and reversals are also more complicated that a blue MTG deck.

OFF-TOPICS: Quick tangent on Blade: Trinity, a movie that may be good?

To commemorate the end of 2021 we return to The Adventures of Pete & Pete's "New Year's Pete". This delightful episode of TV has delicious cocktail wieners, non-glamorous smoking, Debbie Harry, Salvatore 'Big Pussy' Bonpensiero, telepathically-controlled hamster bowling, and jetpack dreams. It all ends with some sweet hope about the holiday and looking forward to the next calendar year. We get some much need calibration by discussing it and hope you enjoy the episode as much as we did.

The Goosebuds boys are back to review another of R.L. Stine's short story collections: the holiday-themed More & More & More Tales to Give You Goosebumps (Special Edition #6)! Once Paul, Kevin, and Chad get past the confusing title sequencing and multiple Curlys on the cover (which one is real?!?) this becomes a pretty fun and frosty episode! They cover ten short stories including Nutmares, Kooshball Gremlins, endless ballet performances, Ice Vampires, holiday bimbofications, and our first hard-confirmed Goosebumps ghost writer!

OFF TOPICS: Pearl Harbor as a holiday, the trajectory of Cuba Gooding Jr, Kevin's beard oil, Paul's timeless blanket, secret headband tech, Chad's lost Buzz.

This episode of Goosebuds sees Kevin, Paul, and Chad joined by guest Hadley St. Clair (Super Try Studios, Pretend Friends) to discuss R.L. Stine's Goosebumps 2000 book I Am Your Evil Twin. To paraphrase Hadley, this story has so many red herrings it should be tinned. It also has one of the craziest plot twists we've ever covered on the show: clone child trafficking! Scary indeed! They also discuss 90s allergy science, papier mache burdens, and piano standoffs. Enjoy!
 
Book Discussion begins at: 09:45
 
OFF-TOPICS: live-action anime adaptations of our nightmares, heirloom hatchets, Timothée Chalamet the YouTuber.

In this episode the G-Boys discuss this Goosebumps 2000 story about a monstrous teacher who will eat a student with the worst performance at the school talent show. To be fair, it's really not much worse than our current-day American education system. Mrs. Maaargh is a fantastic R.L. Stine monster and she quickly munches her way into our collective hearts. Bonus: stand up jokes with balloon animals.
 
OFF-TOPICS: Y2K Samurai-Dragon shirts and the cool people who wore them, Magic the Gathering card sleeve tactics, Papa Cole of Lorwind.

RAW-ROOOOO! It's another Adventure! Kevin, Chad, and Paul read through the choose-your-own-story The Werewolf of Twisted Tree Lodge. The boys roleplay as a young plagiarist whisked away to a writers' convention in a woodland cabin that also is run by werewolves? Sadly we don't get to go to any panels about three act structure or meet R.L. but we had a blast reading through this mess all the same.

Happy Halloween, everybody! Stay safe.

OFF-TOPICS: Kevin's tormented chicken pizza confession.

It's Goosebumps 2000 time, buddies! And Slappy's finally getting married. Though we're still waiting on them to lock down a date. All the venues (ventriloquist stages) are hard to book because they don't exist anymore. Chad, Paul, and Kevin read this fourth Living Dummy tale about Slappy's shot at love, which mostly involves Slappy negging his paramours and calling them 'slave'. He's a real charmer, that Sole Icon Of The Franchise.

OFF-TOPICS: Eastern Time supremacy (which isn't actually real, Pacific Time gets the real benefits), underground California Pizza, the thin red line between "pizza" and "pizza pie", The California Pizza Sphere, our most Cool & Evil Pope's reaction to Undertale, rise of The Ghost Kitchen.

Hot damn is this a fun episode of fall television! Chad, Paul, and Kevin revisit the Nickelodeon classic (and arguably the best thing they've ever produced) The Adventures of Pete & Pete and this anti-capitalist story about the extinction of bears, the nirvana of a perfect golf swing, and the freedom of a fur suit.
 
OFF-TOPICS: Too Hot To Handle aka 'Bone Island', "Soaking" at BYU, God's awkward multiple date situation, Skinwalker Ranch's latest monetization scheme/reality show aka 'Dorky Umbrella Corp'.

We did it, boys and ghouls! This marks us covering every book in the main Goosebumps series! We share the honor with thousands of 90s kid who binge read these things to earn Pizza Hut Book It points. We're gonna take a day to congratulate ourselves and then dive back into the good work as R.L. is still pumping out stories and he only grows in power. This tale of giant sea creatures is certainly no Haunted School but it's a fitting tale to cap R.L's original 62 books as it's filled with pranks, fake outs, marine vore, and a big womp womp of a joke ending. We hope you enjoy it as much as Billy loved diving into that jellyfish.

OFF TOPICS: Our lo-fi screens, inheriting Magic decks, death insurance letters, famous Boyles.

You hear that bell? School is back in session. Kevin, Chad, and Paul hang out and discuss this late entry into the core Goosebumps collection. While none of us recall this book from our youth, this one rocks. It's bursting with ideas including dead child statues, roaming packs of wild dogs, tall goth girls, cease-fire proms, sideways elevators, evil photographers and The Pit. 

OFF TOPICS: Everything is nothing, The Green Knight, Chappie in bed, Chad badly summarizes Mighty Morphing Power Rangers lore, ear candles, Junior Mint Juleps.

This is it! The end of the Fear Street Netflix 'Chillogy' (which is secretly a tetrology but there isn't as obvious a horror pun for that). Paul returns from his West Coast travels to join Kevin and Chad as they discuss the finale of a six-hour tale filled with class division, tripping on berries, sapphic stories, kill count montages, crowdgasp.wav, The Konami Code, and a few twists that simultaneously strengthen the previous films while also making them less necessary? This is a really interesting horror series and we've had fun discussing them. Hope you enjoy the listen too!

OFF-TOPICS: Mr. Vampire, Uncle Traveling Paul's stories, coffee milk, spite forks.

Welcome to Camp Nightwing, Goosebuddies! Uncle 'Traveling' Paul is exploring the West Coast so your hosts tonight are Chad and Kevin. These two hairy-belly men discuss the second installment in this Fear Street movie 'chillogy'. This homage to Friday the 13th is brutal and there are a lot of sweet, innocent children getting axes in the face. We talk about comparisons to the Scream vibes of 1994, whatever themes the movies are going for, and the rules of 'Color War' games. Also that Silent Hill-esque cave heart was rad.

OFF-TOPICS: Kevin's cosplay adventures, getting glomp'ed, Chad's ideal cosplay rig, a curious Brit, western Miyazaki dubs, Space Jam 2: The Death of Culture.

This is a big summer for Fear Street. We're in the midst of three feature films dropping on Netflix, telling a story spanning multiple centuries and horror movie tropes. The Goosebuds Boys Chad, Paul, and Kevin talk about the first film: Leigh Janiak's Fear Street 1994. We have protagonist/angry-ex Deena, passive object-of-affection Sam, cheerleader/valedictorian/driven drug-seller Kate, self-loving goof Simon, and our token nerd Josh. These kids face many monsters but the most terrifying of all is small town class warfare!

This movie has so many things to discuss and thus this is a BEEFY episode. Check out that 2-hour runtime! We hope you enjoy the conversation as much as we did. And of course, heavy spoilers for the movie lie within.

#JusticeForKate #JusticeForSimon

OFF TOPICS: The origin of the finger snap as a battle tactic, RL's True Name, we try something new and actually introduce the show and each other (really just a wholesome opening), and we reveal the existence of The Goof Table.

Large parts of the planet are overheating, so what better way to cool off than a book about putting on heavy extra layers of wool and fur? This is a visceral book filled with viscera! Is 'Werewolf Skin' a fun twist on lycan lore? A metaphor for drug addiction? Or just code for someone's fursuit? The boys discuss and have a few laughs.

OFF TOPICS: Burning mix CDs for romantic flames, revisiting The Culling, spawn camping your newborn, alternative child-bearing methods, pickling your child, Paul's emulator gift.

Long ago in the early days of Goosebuds we read this book. But while Chad covered the book on an earlier episode with Dom and guest Dodger, Paul and Kevin never got to talk about it! They have things to say! This episode is RELOADED. :puts on cool sunglasses and trenchcoat, sits down in a comfy chair to read: 

We crack open the legendary tome about a deadly amusement park, the Horrors that run it, and dad anxiety. This book is still one of R.L.'s greatest works, and it was thrilling to discuss it.

OFF-TOPICS: Paul's journey through the Goat Farm, Megan Thee Goat Owner, chicken buffs, Skyrim: The Eternal RPG, insight into video game mods.

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.
