In 2005, Stephenie Meyer’s YA vampire romance fantasy Twilight kicked off a four-book series, a blockbuster movie franchise, and generally a pop culture phenomenon. NBD. In Episode 17, podcaster and entrepreneur Kelly Parker Smith joins us to discuss all things Bella Swan and Edward Cullen, from the moodiness of Forks to the nature of their relationship… and, of course, we cover the age old #TeamEdward vs. #TeamJacob debate. Is Edward weirdly overprotective? Is it cool to be a vampire? We cover these questions and so much more! Check out Kelly’s work at Hello World Paper Co. (www.helloworldpaperco.com), Creative Biz Rebellion Podcast (www.creativebizrebellion.com), and Creative Rebel Base (www.creativerebelbase.com). Follow Hello World Paper Co.
