GooseBuds is good-buds!
From the podcast masters behind Fantasy Fiction, Syndication Station, and the ContinueCast comes a whole 45 minute show reviewing young adult horror. Yeah, it does sound boring and contrived, but it ain't. Also there's some guy named Chad, he seems ok, and I'm gonna let him stay for now. #DomistheBomb
It's like a book club, for books!
I never knew how much I needed this in my life. Major nostalgia for my favorite childhood book series combined with the most radical lineup of cool dudes in Philly makes for a show that'll make your momma say, "Son, stay out of the basement because this podcast is making your daddy's tree-man donger grow like it's been deep in some monster blood, and we're gonna be goin' at it until I say cheese... and diiiiiiie!"
Great podcast! Can't wait for more!
Really enjoy the podcast! Great convos, funny dudes. These guys are awesome. Except Chad.
Just kidding Chad. You're cool too I guess.
Make more plz!
