MINIBUMP! Goosebumps Protagonist Battle Royale

December 1, 2020

We've now read eight of R.L. Stine's Goosebumps books, and we have the same question all die-hard literary scholars have you have: which protagonist would come out on top if they had to fight to the death?

Geesebumps 10: Werewolf Skin (Goosebumps #60)

Geesebumps 10: Werewolf Skin (Goosebumps #60)

November 24, 2020

Bad news, ya'll. R.L. Stine wrote Werewolf Skin (Goosebumps #60), and did an absolutely amazing job. We go over the troubling realization that Werewolf Skin may very well be the best Goosebumps book, we discuss the ins-and-outs of being a werewolf, and our various R.L. Stines do a super-saiyan fusion. There's a lot of goofs here. Enjoy!

The next episode comes out on December 8th, 2020! We're going to be checking out one of R.L. Stine's more interesting young adult books, The Babysitter, and stay tuned for a minisode on December 1st!

MINIBUMP! “Werewolf Skin” (Goosebumps TV Show)

November 17, 2020

In preparation for our upcoming episode on R.L. Stine's Werewolf Skin (Goosebumps #60), we invited Steve and Emmy, the hosts of Misfits and Mysteries. Together, with their brave assistance, we go through the baffling, convoluted, absolutely unassailable plot of "Werewolf Skin" parts 1 and 2, and we get more and more baffled. These episodes are bonkers.

Geesebumps 9: “Don’t Ever Get Sick at Granny’s” (Ghosts of Fear Street #16)

Geesebumps 9: “Don’t Ever Get Sick at Granny’s” (Ghosts of Fear Street #16)

November 10, 2020

It's cold and flu season so what better time to go through one of the scariest, illness based works in R.L. Stine's canon, Don't Ever Get Sick at Granny's. We talk Jilly Juice, cleansing, the dangers of water intoxication, unflattering dream sequences, and overnight cold cures. As a note, these are all things that are dangerous for you and though Danielle and Joe-Joe are doctors, they are not medical doctors.

The next episode comes out on November 24th, 2020! We're going to be checking out one of the later Goosebumps books, Werewold Skin (Goosebumps #60), and stay tuned for a minisode on the 17th where we discuss some Goosebumps apocrypha!

MINIBUMP! The Curious Case of Jovial Bob Stine… (How to Be Funny and 101 Vacation Jokes)

November 3, 2020

This wasn't a spooky book in any way, and in fact is pretty darn far from Goosebumps and the like, but as it turns out much like Jordan Peele, Robert Stine started his writing career as a humorist under the name "Jovial" Bob Stine. We recount two of his books in this episode How to Be Funny and 101 Vacation Jokes. These are both just...
