DIBC-EP165-01.jpg

I have two more Jellybean Books to get through and my COLLECTORS have joined me in this bizarre and satisfying task!

Brad and Jeremy phase in and out of reality as we talk about “Scardies!” and “Twitchies!” and “CROTCHIES” because CROTCHIES IS CANON! CROTCHIES IS CANON! CROTCHIES IS CANON!

Episode 159 – The [REDACTED] [REDACTED] and Too Much [REDACTED]

DIBC-EP159-01.jpg

My collectors are back! Brad Mariska and Jeremy Gloff have joined me to discuss a book that is the worst thing and that should not exist. “The Berenstein Bears and Too Much Tequila” is dumb, bad and dumb and bad and I hate it. I hate it. I hate that I’m even discussing it in a public forum. I hate it. Enjoy!

Episode 114 – Meeting Mike (Part 2)

DIBC-EP110We’re back with Part 2 of our big Mike Berenstain meetup! This episode, Brad and Jeremy and I get grilled as to our intentions; we talk about books whose success caught Mike off guard; what books didn’t do so hot; and dish the hot goss. Or, not. I can’t remember.

Episode 110 – Meeting Mike (Part 1)

DIBC-EP110.jpg

Hoo boy! This is it! The first part of our massive trip to the Berenstain Bears studio! It’s so big, I’m not only splitting it up, but I’m sprinkling it throughout upcoming episodes, just so you don’t get burnt out on this one thing. So, I’ll be alternating traditional episodes with Mike episodes. I think that’s fair!
