Episode 29 - The Boyfriend

Monstrous teenagers and teenage monsters!  Thrill as mean teenagers fake deaths, fake zombiefication, fake other deaths, and then can't figure out why nobody likes them!  Chill as everybody has a silly expensive car but no moral compass whatsoever!  It's 2 AM, do your children know how to close and lock a window?

Joanna is a stuck up bitch.  Her boyfriend Dex is an insane gaslighting.... secret prosthetic makeup expert?  When Dex falls off a cliff and dies, Joanna keeps seeing him around, like, at the mall.  Is Dex dead?  Is Dex alive?  Are all of these people awful humans anyway?  It's The Boyfriend by RL Stine!

Episode 1: "The Pride of the Peacock"



Hey, y'all! Welcome to our podcast! Follow us here on Facebook (and on our website, coming soon) to make sure you don't miss an episode. Currently we're a feature on the Collinsport Historical Society podcast, because if you love trashy romance novels I'm gonna bet you also love soap operas with vampires and time travel. In our first episode we discuss Victoria Holt's "The Pride of the Peacock" - which has no sexual assault, even of the fantasy kind. Sadly, it has no sex at all. It does have SO MANY OPALS and a dude everyone calls the Peacock without busting out laughing tho.
