Fire the Canon

Bump Patrol is back, baby. We revisit the book Theo calls one of the scariest of the whole Goosebump canon, and it’s an absolute blast (from the past).

Will the kids stay out of the basement as they’re told? Or will they drive the plot forward by very much NOT staying out of the basement? Is Margaret and Casey’s mom having an affair with a cactus? Is Fatso a good nickname for a preteen girl? What even is DNA anyway?

Listen to find out! The first ~15 minutes are free to all. Join our much-loved Patreon fam to hear the rest, as well as all our other bonus content, at www.patreon.com/firethecanon.

Topics include: The Room, vulture librarians, trauma queens, pissing things right out of the bladder, excessive hair tossing, secret tomatoes, ridiculously poor lab hygiene, real dads vs. plant dads, Monsieur Henri, mad scientists, and murderous composers.
