'All These Bodies' by Kendare Blake
In this episode, Carrie and Jake talk about Kendare Blake's 2021 YA horror novel 'All These Bodies', a sort of true crime podcast in the form of a period piece YA novel. It's unreliable narrators all the way down! Spoilers abound, so we recommend reading the book before listening, if you're interested in a spooky, atmospheric novel that raises more questions than it answers.

Denial Ain’t Just A Riverdale In Egypt
Back in 2017, Carrie and Jake has a lot of questions on their minds: Can four kids with a toolbox build a mall? What if they're bruiser studs? Also, what are the worst gifts to bring to a baby shower? What is Jake's secret history with Luke Perry? Which is better, making out or being a detective? We delved into all of this, and oh so much more, in this week's episode of 'Denial Ain't Just A Riverdale In Egypt', in which we discussed Riverdale Chapter 8: The Outsiders. The theme song is "JOSIE HAS THE UPPER HAND" by Josh Woodward. Free download: http://joshwoodward.com/ This episode contains an excerpt from a song by Dürty Folk, and a reference to Dinosaur Comics. I think I should also note that this episode of Riverdale has a subplot involving abortion, which we do talk about a fair amount. Welcome to our comedy podcast!

Sabrina Chapter 8: The Burial
This week, Jake and Carrie suffer in exquisite ecstasy as they discuss 'The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Chapter 8: The Burial'. Is Sabrina playing 'The Secret of Monkey Island' poorly? Is bringing back the dead, by and large, a no-no? Can an episode of TV centered on a deadly mining disaster also be super horny? Listen to the episode to find out!

'The Woods Are Always Watching' by Stephanie Perkins - HOT TAKE SPECIAL
Who have two thumbs and an opinion about Stephanie Perkins's new YA horror novel, 'The Woods Are Always Watching'? Jake and Carrie do! Welcome to a new HOT TAKE SPECIAL, in which Jake speculates that Jon Arbuckle (of Garfield fame)'s old roommate was a serial killer, and Carrie points out a downside to stickshifts that many might overlook. The episode (and the book) has some kind of graphic descriptions of body trauma, so be aware of that. Also we definitely describe the plot in some detail. Spoilers ahoy!

Living In A Van Down By The Riverdale

This episode, Jake and Carrie discuss 'The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Chapter 7: Feast of Feasts'. Carrie has the Shinning! Jake connects ex-GW Bush scriptwriter and current Never Trumper David Frum to satanic rituals! There's a subplot we actually kind of like! And some we're not as fond of.

'Darius the Great Deserves Better' by Adib Khorrom
For this episode, Carrie and Jake read 'Darius the Great Deserves Better' by Adib Khorram. Carrie is a pretty good shell. Jake is making unapproved tea. Is penis mockery just part of growing up?

The Midnight Ride of Paul Riveredale
Back in 2017, we visited the Garden of Deliverance with the Sisters of Quiet Mercy, and then headed out past the maple syrup sign on the Lost Highway. Did we learn discipline and respect as a result? Find out in this episode of 'The Midnight Ride of Paul Riveredale', in which we discuss Riverdale Chapter 6: Faster, Pussycats! Kill! Kill! We mention in this episode the concerns about making Jughead heterosexual in the TV series. A fuller discussion can be found in various places online, such as in this article on Polygon.

Another year, another episode of Sabrina!

'A Song Below Water' by Bethany C. Morrow
Hi again all! Welome back to Love YA Like Crazy, where, this episode, we're talking about ... a BOOK??? (It's true!) Specifically, 'A Song Below Water' by Bethany C. Morrow. This episode was recorded on August 20 -- sorry for the delay in getting to you! But this is being released the day before the 2020 US election, and I imagine that a lot of you are kind of stressed, so, for now, just put in your earbuds and think back to that far-off yesteryear of ten and a half weeks ago, when, uh ... Ah, hell, everything still sucked, didn't it? Never mind. But the book has a lot of things to talk about, and we hope you enjoy the discussion! As always, the episode contains a lot of spoilers, so you may wish to read the book first, if you prefer to remain unspoiled.

Over The Riverdale And Through The Woods
Some things are acceptable to be into, such as songs about partying, veils, and Val from Josie and the Pussycats. Then there are the things we can do without, such as football, journalism spa retreats, pointy sleepwear, and maple syrup jokes! We discuss this distinction, play 'Things I Bought At Sheetz', and more, in this week's episode of 'Over The Riverdale And Through The Woods', in which Love YA Like Crazy's Carrie and Jake discuss Riverdale Chapter 5: Heart of Darkness. Jake often worries that he goes overboard in adding audio clips to these things, so he just wants you to know that he came this → ← close to putting a little Weird Al into this episode, before listening to the better angels of his nature and deciding against it.

Chip & Riverdale
Both this episode of Riverdale and our commentary on it are totally bonkers. In this episode, Jake gets political, Carrie reveals a guilty secret, we discover what search engine the Riverdale gang uses, we give advice on how to use diaries, and Jake is mocked ᚠᚩᚱ ᚱᛁᛏᛁᛝ ᛁᛅ ᚱᚢᛅᛁᚲ ᛁᛅ ᚻᛁ ᛋᚲᚩᚩᛚ. We also comment on some severely problematic stuff in this episode, and are sad about how it ends. Basically, our commentary on this episode is longer than the episode itself.

Sabrina Chapter 4: Witch Academy; plus, JK Rowling's transphobia
We start this episode by briefly addressing JK Rowling's recent transphobic comments, before turning to more pleasant topics: It's time to head to the Big E, violate the Satanic Temple's trandemarks, and talk to some creepy kids about your stolen bathrobe, because this episode we're talking about 'The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: Chapter 4: Witch Academy', available on Netflix!

Cry Me a Riverdale
Like a double-chocolate milkshake at Pop's, Riverdale seems sweet at first but leaves you wishing for death. Jake and Carrie love trashy YA fiction, and in 2017 started reviewing the CW series in their own Patreon series of episodes, "Cry Me a Riverdale", where they spoiled the infamous CW show, swore a lot, and wondered if anyone in Riverdale is lactose intolerant. We hope you enjoy our discussion of Riverdale Chapter 1: The River's Edge, and we thank you for listening! The theme song is "JOSIE HAS THE UPPER HAND" by Josh Woodward.

PodX Episode 7: Allegra Frank on Andrew Clements's 'Things Not Seen'
Welcome to Love YA Like Crazy! You're listening to a special episode recorded by one of the two hosts, Jacob Haller, while he was at PodX in Nashville. This is the last episode in the series, which I think goes out on a high note! For this one, Jake talked to Vox Media's Allegra Frank, who is also a cohost of 'The Polygon Show', about Andrew Clements's 'Things Not Seen', and we were also joined by past guest Simone de Rochefort, which was very excellent! Note that the discussion includes spoilers for 'Things Not Seen', as well as Clements's 'Frindle' and Libba Bray's 'Beauty Queens', and the final episode of Game of Thrones. As mentioned in this discussion, Libba Bray wrote an article about the experience of trying to bring 'Beauty Queens' to the big screen. You can find it on ew.com. The episode contains a brief clip from The Polygon Show's bonus episode about the Game of Thrones finale, in which a couple of the podcast's cohosts, Ashley Oh and Simone de Rochefort, improvise a missing scene from the show. If you enjoy it, I recommend listening to the rest of the show, and other episodes of the Polygon Show in general! Plus, a correction: Jake mentioned that he and Carrie previously recorded an episode about 'Shiver' by Maggie Stiefvater, except I called it 'Frozen'. Anyway, if you want to hear Carrie and me critique the book, here's a link to the episode! We recorded in a space provided by Netflix, for which we thank them! Thanks to Shaenon K.

PodX Episode 5: Carrie Poppy & Ross Blocher on 'Harriet the Spy' and 'Maniac Magee'
Welcome to Love YA Like Crazy! You're listening to a special episode recorded by one of the two hosts, Jacob Haller, while he was at PodX in Nashville. For this episode, Jake talked to Ross Blocher and Carrie Poppy of 'Oh No Ross and Carrie' about some books that were important to them when they were young. Note that the discussion includes spoilers for Louise Fitzhugh's 'Harriet the Spy' and its sequel 'The Long Secret', and 'Maniac Magee' by Jerry Spinelli. This discussion was recorded on Jake's phone in a semi-secluded corner by an elevator at PodX, and we apologize for the resulting sound quality. Thanks to Shaenon K.
