Episode 9: Goosebumps-Escape from the Carnival of Horrors

In this episode, we take a break from our Teen Titans Retrospective and dive into the Goosebumps spinoff series “Give yourself Goosebumps.”  We originally planned to tackle both Escape from the Carnival of Horrors and Scream of the Evil Genie but we had so much fun reading the first book that we did a whole episode on it!  We tackled a Reptile Petting Zoo, played a Wheel of Chance with a parrot, and revived an evil dummy.

Episode 8: Alien Puberty

In this episode, we continue our Teen Titans retrospective and look at episodes “Transformation,” “Titan Rising,” and “Winner Take All” from Season 2.  We talk about Starfire’s race and their bad sex education, how fun it would be to play volleyball with the Titans, and Speedy’s important role in comic book history.  Andy also goes off on a tangent talking about one of his favorite cartoon shows, Jackie Chan Adventures.

Episode 7: Raven Herself

In this episode we geek out about Teen Titans, Season 2, episodes “Only Human,” “Fear Itself,” and “Date with Destiny.”  We talk about Cyborg’s identity issues, Control Freak’s gross appearance, and how Robin can be the funniest Titan if written right.  Fantastic episodes all around for Season 2!

Episode 6: The Tamaranean who Leapt through Time

In this episode we return to Teen Titans Season 2 focusing on episodes “How Long is Forever?” “Every Dog has its Day,” and “Terra.”  We talk about wibbly-wobbly-time travel shenanigans, Easter Island man-babies, and Slade creeping on Terra.  And does anyone else notice how Raven doesn’t mind being licked by an alien dog?

Episode 5: Lostalgia-“Give Yourself Magination Goosebumps”

In this episode, we explore our lostalgia, nostalgia over media that hasn’t been popular since it debut.  Mary talks about “Magination,” the Gameboy Color game while Andy talks about the Goosebumps spin-off series “Give Yourself Goosebumps.”  We gush about why we love our respective nostalgia and the probable reasons why they haven’t been popular since they debuted.

Episode 4: Another Titan in the Wall

In this episode we discuss Teen Titans, Season 1, “Mad Mod,” “Car Trouble,” and “Apprentice” parts 1 and 2.  We talk about Mad Mod’s crazy house, the wonderful, rare pairing between Cyborg and Raven, and how Slade is just so freaking creepy.  Also, we ask ourselves, is Slade Robin in disguise?

Episode 3: Peter Lorre Puppet

In this episode we discuss Teen Titans, Season 1, “Switched,” “Deep Six,” and “Mask.” We talk about how boring Aqualad is, why Raven and Starfire switching bodies makes a great episode, and how Slade is so, weirdly, creepily obsessed with Robin.
