Episode 11: Goosebumps // Welcome to Dead House


Goosebumps // Welcome to Dead House

Twenty years too late, Alli is finally joining the Cool Kids Club and reading Goosebumps for the first time! In Episode 11 of The SSR Podcast, we discuss the first book in this beloved, best-selling series from R.L. Stine, Welcome to Dead House. How scary is too scary for middle grade? Are helicopter parents ruining kid lit? Why are girls socialized to read some book series, while boys are socialized to read others? We’ll discuss these questions and so much more with this week’s guest Sarah Slusher, founder of the Really Into This pop culture blog. Follow Sarah on Instagram (@stslusher) and Twitter (@Stslusher)!
