Podcast episode #9: Let’s own our pleasure-pleasures

Welcome to episode #9 of the To Do Lists of the Semi-Adult podcast where Rae and I talk about the pleasure-pleasures that is popular culture intended for young adults. Subscribe to this bi-weekly podcast on iTunes, Stitcher or by using our feed link. Rae and I share a love for popular media intended for young adults. We're talking about ABC Family television series, animated movies and easy, fun, capturing books about terrible romances. Rae owns it, and I spend a lot of time feeling guilty about it, but she's right. "There are no guilty pleasures, just pleasure-pleasures." First on the docket is our discussion on the merits of The Secret Life of the American Teenager, of which the entire series is available for all of your viewing pleasures on Netflix. We also talk about Frozen, the Hunger Games trilogy, Pretty Little Liars, Twilight, Divergent, and Prince of Egypt. Also, of course, we talk about the Harry Potter series, which might not even count as the young adult genre. One of the coolest ways to enjoy Harry Potter for a second, third, fourth or fifth time is through the Mark Reads blog, where you can read about his reaction to the books, chapter by chapter. We also want to thank Xavier for sending us an awesome email, and in that spirit: please send us mail! Rae can be found at raesdays.com, on Instagram and Twitter, and at raesdays(at)gmail(dot)com.
