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 corn state is in trouble, listeners! Small robotic drones designed like metal wasps are terrorizing the youth. They are not being used for war. Let us make that clear: this is not a metaphor about drone warfare at all. Your hosts Chad Quandt, Paul Ritchey, and Kevin Cole cover Johnathan Rand's American Chillers: Iron Insects Invade Indiana. And we're joined by the wonderful Payton Whaley (WTIU's Flyover Culture). Payton's an Indiana boy like Chad and the two bond about their lives in the 'Crossroads of America', working for public television, and enjoying a time when there weren't metal menaces filling the skies. It was a simpler time. Anyway, this is a good episode! Enjoy.

Book discussion begins: 4:30

Off Topics: MIMAL THE ELF, The Friday Zone

Giddyup, Pegacorn! Your hosts Chad Quandt, Paul Ritchey, and Kevin Cole wrangle the Choose Your Own Adventure book Flight of the Unicorn by Deborah Lerme Goodman. In a previous episode we had a great adventure in Deborah's Scottish-ish fantasy world. In this book we're the apprentice to some sort of horse-mancer? It involves sewing wings onto cats to turn them into unicorns? There has to be a better method, right? Either way a dastardly royal wants to turn our beautiful flying horses into an unstoppable army! We can't have any of that. Thankfully we have the strongest weapon in the kingdom: pocket cat!

We're back in Horrorland, Buddies! Your hosts Chad Quandt, Paul Ritchey, and Kevin Cole cover R.L. Stine's Goosebumps Horrorland book 'Creep from the Deep'. We're reunited with Billy and Sheena Deep and their uncle Dr. D. What sort of doctor is Deep? A water scientist? He does not have respect for the ocean like he should and his children suffer once again because of it. But this book has some pretty fun stuff including ghost pirates! Or pirate ghosts! And we learn more about the shared book story of Horrorland. What are the Horrors planning? Do they even have a plan? Note: despite the cover there are not Shrek Eels.

Book discussion begins: 14:45

Just in time for the holidays we have a new Adventure! episode: Sonic the Hedgehog Adventure Gamebook #3 'Sonic v. Zonik' written by Nigel Gross & Jon Sutherland. These two authors watched their kids play Sonic for five minutes and then free wrote a Choose Your Own Adventure baded on that. What? Yes, Sonic is a Christmas character. Every kid gets a Sega Genesis on Christmas pre-packaged with Sonic 2. Every year. Or is that just Chad? Your hosts Paul Ritchey, Chad Quandt, and Kevin Cole read through this mess of a book that maybe has some missing pages. 

Adventure starts: 9:50

Ding dong, Goosebuddies! Your hosts Chad Quandt, Paul Ritchey, and Kevin Cole are back to cover the third episode in the 2023 Goosebumps TV series involving the fabled Cuckoo Clock of Doom! In this Groundhog Day-ish episode a bunch of evil clone James are threatening to... throw kids in pits? Unclear what their plan is. They're also very susceptible to damage. You know that villain Twice from My Hero Academia? It's kind of like that but with less thrilling music.

We're just getting started with the new 2023 series, Goosebuddies! We check out Episode 2 of Disney/Hulu's Goosebumps series, "The Haunted Mask".

As the fall air turns crisp, enjoy this episode revisiting the 90s classic The Adventures of Pete & Pete. Your hosts Chad Quandt, Paul Ritchey, and Kevin Cole cover this season 3 episode focused on Little Pete and his magic coin which can only be recharged by endangering a train. Please understand: each year dozens of trains go off the rails because of plucky kids putting currency on the rails. Do not do this. This episode was irresponsible for Nickelodeon to air, encouraging other kids to do such dangerous acts. But we still had a good time talking about it.

Goosebumps is back on TV! Your hosts Chad Quandt, Paul Ritchey, and Kevin Cole check out the pilot episode of this new Hulu Goosebumps (aka Hulusbumps) series about five teenagers discovering supernatural forces in their small town. And this first episode starts off with ghost arson! We take big guesses at where the series goes from here and anticipate Slappy's arrival. Is this show for teenagers? 30-somethings? Either way, watch out for Justin Long!

Slappy' back, Goosebuddies! Your hosts Chad Quandt, Kevin Cole, and Paul Ritchey read through the first book in R.L. Stine's Goosebumps Horrorland series: Revenge of the Living Dummy. The Horrorland series promises an ongoing story connecting these spooky tales; does it start strong with the iconic puppet monster? What is Slappy's connection to a theme park? And who is Mr. Badboy? Is it Slappy? Oh yeah, it's just Slappy.

Sharpen your horns on the nearest elderwood, Goosebuddies! Your hosts Chad Quandt, Paul Ritchey, and Kevin Cole are reading a Choose Your Own Adventure: Deborah Lerme Goodman's The Magic of the Unicorn. Our kid heroes are on a quest to find a unicorn horn to purify their village's water supply. Presumably you put the horn in a water filter. Maybe you drink from it like a giant straw. Will we run into that tree hag on the cover? Or will something else more magical occur? Enjoy!

With Goosebumps 2000 in our rear view mirror the boys drive to R.L. Stine's Fear Street. We've visted Shadyville in previous episodes but are thinking about putting down podcast roots. The community seems nice. Despite this episode's title it is not about an 'adorkable' Zooey Deschanel moving in with three sexual dudes. Instead in this first book of the series Cory Brooks hungers for new arrival Anna Corwin's kisses. This mysterious girl may be a ghost and is full of red flags. Teenage hormones blind Cory to real love when his best friend Lisa is right there! Can we survive this love triangle?

What danger lies beneath our very feet? Could it be morlocks? C.H.U.D.s? Or something even worse: giant nightcrawler worms that have no real senses and just flop around crushing everything! Doesn't that sound positively spooky? We hope so, because Chad Quandt and Kevin Cole are reading Johnathan Rand's American Chillers series #15: Nebraska Nightcrawlers. Will these kids be able to shrink the subterranean assassins back down to size? Enjoy the episode!

Wait, who's that running across the moonlit beach? It's Camp Counselor Domi (Paperback Paradise) who rejoins Chad Quandt, Paul Ritchey, and Kevin Cole to check out the infamous 90s TV procedural Baywatch Nights. In this spinoff of the phenomenon Baywatch, David Hasslehoff's Mitch Buchannon moonlights as a Californian P.I., dealing with paranormal problems. In this episode, the blood of a serial killer infects multiple people with the desires of sex and death. It's really a wild trip and we have a blast closing this case with Dom. The nights will never be the same!

It's the end of the millennium! Your hosts Chad Quandt, Paul Ritchey, and Kevin Cole read the last Goosebumps 2000 book: R.L. Stine's Ghost In The Mirror. In this episode young Jason gets a thrifted mirror that is secretly a portal to a mirror dimension. It's sort of like that episode of Infinity Train but not as well written. Can Jason stop his mirror doppleganger from throwing cars all over town? Does Goosebumps 2000 end with a real Y2K-level threat or is it more of a dud like how the real Y2K went? Enjoy the episode.

Blast off, Goosebuddies! Your hosts Paul Ritchey, Chad Quandt, and Kevin Cole read R.L. Stine's Goosebumps 2000 book Earth Geeks Must Go! It is a 'story' about young boy Jacob Miller who finds himself on an alien planet with strange differences than his own. For example, everyone here eats food with arm pit mouths! Gross! To be honest, it's mostly identical to Earth for some reason. People read books with their tongues; is that spooky? Also there are war crimes committed by sentient bugs. Enjoy the episode!

Hey Goosebuddies! We're taking a book break and visiting some classic 90s television; Craig Bartlett's animated slice of life Hey Arnold! Your hosts Chad Quandt, Paul Ritchey, and Kevin Cole watch two episodes: 'The List' (written by Joe Ansolabehere) in which Arnold tries to have a perfect day, and 'Haunted Train' (written by Josephine Nericcio) where a blue collar ghost story pulls Arnold and his friends into (possibly) hell. Does this show hold up as much as we remember? This visit to the intentionally non-specific city Hillwood unlocks some big core memories for us and leads to good discussion. Enjoy the episode!

Wake up, Goosebuddies, it's time for another episode! Chad Quandt, Paul Ritchey, and Kevin Cole read through R.L. Stine's Goosebuds 2000 book Slappy's Nightmare. In a bizarre turn, Goosebump's iconic main monster is the protagonist of the book as the dummy tries to be good for once. Just look at that cover. Slappy is scared! Upside is down, ketchup is mustard, cats and dogs are living together! Do we like this book or should we have hit the 'snooze' button? Enjoy the episode!

Happy 150th episode, Goosebuddies! If episodes were Pokemon this would be MewTwo, which is a pretty cool thing to be in any comparison. Speaking of mutant monsters, this episode has Chad, Paul, and Kevin reading R.L. Stine's Goosebumps 2000 book Full Moon Fever. We need to be clear: this is not about werewolves! Yes, these beast children are supposedly transformed by the moon and covered in fur and love howling but this is different than lycanthropy! We're stunned by how buck wild this book gets with real stakes, crazy turns, and the potential of eating parents. Is this the best Goosebumps book we've ever read?

Ding ding! In this episode Chad, Paul, and Kevin read through R.L. Stine's Give Yourself Goosebumps book Elevator to Knowhere. In this story our wacky Uncle Darius-- not Larry David as this cover may have led you to assume-- is kidnapped by a knife-wielding doppelgänger and he can only be saved with his multiverse elevator. We'll travel to fantastic dimensions including a rad one where children are illegal. Honestly this books rips cheeks and we had a blast. Enjoy!

The Goosebuds Boys Paul, Chad, and Kevin read R.L. Stine's Goosebumps 2000 book Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid. One may argue that title could apply to virtually anything in the Goosebumps bibliography but we got it for this one; a surprisingly meta tale about board games and choose-your-own-adventure books that would make Charlie Kaufman wince. Can we survive this book or will we be lost to the Shadow Realm?

Hope you had cable in the 90s because the Goosebuddies are checking out the Disney Channel cult show So Weird and its pilot episode 'Family Reunion' about paranormal believer Fi, her rocker mom, and the tour bus family that explores the things in the world that make a teenager cryptically whisper 'So weird...'. In this episode it's specifically the ghost of a poor wet boy who hates laptops.

This episode the Goosebud Boys cover R.L. Stine's Goosebumps 2000 book Return to Ghost Camp, a sequel that has no returning characters or plot threads. It's not even the same camp. Can protagonist Dustin Minium evade the shape-shifting fox monster known as The Snatcher? At least this book gives us a great opportunity to reflect on the Kevin Era (aka Phase 2 of Goosebuds Cinematic Universe).

Book Discussion begins: 11:15 (sort of).

Off Topics: Kevin's Anniversary, Hot Topic and 'Just Two Things' shirts, our personalized Emotionally Honest T-shirts, the grape-worthy terroir of Indiana.

Whoever knows fear burns at the touch of the Man-Thing! And we had a similar response to reading this comic book! Chad, Paul, and Kevin are joined by expert Adam Teterus (Man-Thing Minute), to cover R.L. Stine's infamous 2017 Marvel series. This story shows the usually-horrifying Man-Thing now a joke machine trying to survive the entertainment industry in Burbank, California. It's certainly a comic book with some fantastic art by German Peralta! To know the better side of the shambling mound's stories we also read the classic issue Man-Thing #4 (1974) written by Steve Gerber and art by Val Mayerik. In that we meet the religious zealot and Marvel D-Lister The Foolkiller! This is a pretty wild episode as we compare the two very different works about the same character. Enjoy the listen!
