Happy Halloween!!

 

Meghan is joined by two new guests, and at Alicia's suggestion, they read The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson! It's a perfect Halloween book, and somehow ghosts got into our system! We also discuss other horror books we love and slasher movies and shows we enjoy.

Due to some crazy traveling and scheduling conflicts, I brought back two past guests to talk horror books really quick, rather than start a new round of guests! James DeBruicker of Over the Tabletop and Ileana Garcia both were wonderful enough to take a little bit of time out of their day to talk about what they love about horror books, an appropriate topic for October.

This week we have Carson Long and Millena Silva back to discuss their second YA book: Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card! Meghan rants about nicknames being stupid, Millena proves that Hunger Games is just an updated female version of Ender's Game, and Carson braces himself in case Millena says she hates the book. We also try to convince Millena she needs to see IT (and never sleep again), and Meghan gets whiny about Ender's name and personality. All three of us begin our pitch on the Tim is our mutual friend podcast. 

Also enjoy hearing some of The Wake Up Kids, then go check out their BandCamp page for more info!

I am on the road, but I took a few minutes to discuss banned books. I'm joined by Ollie for a quick discussion on banned books in the US and Ireland! As per the norm, we get slightly off topic, but it was definitely interesting to hear the difference between how both countries view and the history of banned and challenged books. 

Note: at one point I say books can't be banned, which isn't 100% true — schools classrooms and libraries can ban books, but that's about it. Enjoy!
