Second episode up

Our second episode of RetRead Podcast is now up! We got together to discuss RL Stine’s The New Girl, the first book in the Fear Street series. To be honest, we didn’t know if there’d be much to talk about. As it turns out, we ended up discussing (or arguing) for almost an hour and a half. A good half hour of it was actually just the two of us debating the (im)possibilities of the Cory/Lisa relationship. Surge is a huge fan of the “girl next door” trope, while Anna is more of a realist. It got pretty heated. We did end up cutting a bit of it since you guys probably aren’t too interested in 2 people yelling at each other for 30 minutes. We are actually still arguing about it 4 days later. Let us know what you think in the comment section below!

Before we got into The New Girl, Anna reviewed Point of No Return by Martha Gellhorn and Night Shift by Stephen King.

Thanks for reading, give us a listen.

First episode out!

Thanks for coming to check out our wordpress. We just published our first episode where we ended up discussion the show and talking about The Fireman by Joe Hill. Spoiler alert, Surge was not the biggest fan.

It was pretty fun to be able to chat about the book and we look forward to discussing more books down the line.

The main goal of the podcast is actually to get Surge up to speed on what he missed out on during his 90’s childhood in terms of books. He may or may not be doing this willingly, and perhaps he missed out on nothing.

The plan for now is to start with the Fear Street books by RL Stine and slowly make our down some sort of literary path.

However, we will also be starting out each podcast with a general rundown of other non-90’s geared toward kids books that we’ve read recently.

Anyways, without further ado.
