About Us

A weekly podcast about young adult literature, their filmic adaptations and everything in between.

Ghost World feat. CC Stapleton

Prep your cynical disdain and your green tint (or is it blue?) because Brenna and Joe - plus special guest CC Stapleton - are headed back into comic territory with Daniel Clowes' 1997 comic and Terry Zwigoff's 2001 film adaptation, Ghost World.

Ghost World feat. CC Stapleton

The Maze Runner

Brenna and Joe have patched up their differences and just in time, because they find themselves locked up with the Gladers, a bunch of annoying, mediocre (mostly) white boys from James Dashner's 2009 dystopian YA, The Maze Runner and Wes Ball's 2014 film adaptation, starring Teen Wolf break-out Dylan O'Brien.

Harry Potter And The Philosopher's Stone feat. Hannah McGregor

Brenna and guest star Hannah McGregor arrive at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, but Joe is nowhere to be found! The result is more drama than a Gryffindor v Slytherin Quidditch match as Brenna has to duck out early, meaning Hannah is less guest, and more like the glue holding this episode together.

Excerpt E. Interview with Tim Wynne-Jones

Part of HKHSPod's mandate is to highlight the work of Canadian YA writers. In this exclusive interview, Brenna and Joe are joined by Governor General award-winning novelist Tim Wynne-Jones to discuss his new adventure novel, The Starlight Claim, his unusual connection to Rafi and JK Rowling, and why it is important that his characters are never black or white.

Excerpt E. Interview with Tim Wynne-Jones

After

Brenna and Joe head off to College for a sexy educa- Nope! Can't do it! There are no jokes to be had regarding the painfully unsexy and potentially damaging "erotic" coming of age book by Wattpad "author" Anna Todd. On the other side of the gulf is director Jenny Gage's bland-as-white-toast film adaptation starring human block of wood Josephine Langford and horribly miscast (and inconsistently British) Hero Fiennes Tiffin.

Every Day

Brenna and Joe aren't feeling quite themselves - in fact they may be experiencing an out of body event as a result of reading David Levithan's 2012 book Every Day and screening Michael Sucsy's 2018 film adaptation. Or perhaps it is simply that they are struggling with pronouns and personhood as a result of A's constantly changing bodies.

Every Day

The Giver

Brenna and Joe join the uniformly black and white life of the 'Sameness' as they dig into Lois Lowry's 1993 Newberry medal winner dystopian text, The Giver. Unfortunately because this is still a YA adaptation podcast, they're also forced to check out Philip Noyce's 2014 film adaptation, which Joe politely describes as a "run of the mill dystopian garbage fest with hot people".

The Giver

Josie And The Pussycats

Brenna and Joe return from their long recording sabbatical with bright eyes and cat ears. For the start of Book 2 (aka our second season) we wanted something fun and frothy, so what better to kick things off with than the tale of friendship, success and capitalism that is Josie And The Pussycats?!
