Sweet Valley Diaries
About This Show
After years of wide-eyed blogging about the surreal 1980s perfection of Francine Pascal's Sweet Valley High book series (and the surprising psychodrama that lurks below the town's perfectly-tanned surface), host Marissa Flaxbart is now forcing friends and family to read the series with her.

My favorite podcast!
As a tween in the 80's, I devoured these books like they were only thing that mattered. I read each of them, dozens of times. So listening to the podcast takes me immediately back to those times, but with a new twist of an adult perspective. This podcast is an enjoyable as listening to The Droids play while you and your friends drink shakes at the Dairi Burger after a Lila Fowler pick up party!
