Release Date: 05/03/2021
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,...info_outline Ep 103 - My Best Friend Is Invisible
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).

If you consider that a personality trait. 'Zeke the Plumber' (otherwise titled as 'Ghost Story') is Salute Yours Shorts most infamous episode.

Wowzers, we've done a hundred episodes of Goosebuds! That's a Benjamin of podcasts. We are so grateful for you listening and being a part of this family of audio campers. To celebrate the centennial, the Goosebuds Boys watched the 2018 film Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween 'starring' Jack Black. (The quotations are to mock his total appearance time; not his star power. We love Jables.) This movie evokes different emotions in each of us and things are going to get heated. The magic circle has been drawn. Runes have been placed to keep emotions at bay. Let's discuss this piece of cinematic art....info_outline Ep 99 - The Curse of Camp Cold Lake

The Blob That Ate Everyone has arguably one the best Goosebumps covers, with one of the best taglines, but... is it one of the best stories? No. It really isn't. Even so Paul, Chad, and Kevin have a great time talking about magical typewriters that is also somehow the precursor plot to the Goosebumps movie. OFF TOPICS: The Hobbit dwarves' desirability rankings, a comment on our increased Tolkien-verse conversations, "Buca Di Pepe" and how to impress your friends at Brazilian steakhouses.
