Ep 103 - My Best Friend Is Invisible
Release Date: 05/31/2021
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...info_outline Ep 106 - Fear Street: 1994
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...info_outline Ep 105 - Werewolf Skin
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,...info_outline Ep 103 - My Best Friend Is Invisible

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).

They stole this...info_outline Ep 102 - Salute Your Shorts: 'Zeke the Plumber'
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?

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
