E58: What if Gilmore Girls Read Horror? with Stephanie from Books in the Freezer

 

Today, I am doing something a little different. I’ve invited Stephanie Gagnon, from the Books in the Freezer podcast, to do a Gilmore Girls Read Horror episode, where we choose horror books we think various characters from the show would read. We have a lot of fun, and I want to thank Stephanie for recording the episode with me a second time after a mishap the first time around. It allowed us to revisit our answers and we both hope you enjoy the episode. Let us know your ideas too! You can find us both on Twitter and Instagram, and Books in the Freezer is also on TikTok. Thanks for joining us today.
