Say It Out Loud: TwiHard Recovery Club

Say It Out Loud: TwiHard Recovery Club

This podcast bites. It sucks too. Sixteen years after the release of the ground-breaking YA romance novel, Twilight, two former TwiHards, Jena and Alyssa, consider what made us go rabid over a sparkly-skinned Victorian boy named Edward. We consider not only the impact of Twilight on our culture at large, but its influence on our tween upbringings and whether or not Edward and Bella might have set us up to seek out toxic relationships.

If there’s one thing about Twilight that holds up years later, it’s the soundtracks. The emo-pop and grunge-rock-love songs in the first movie permanently changed our music taste (“It’s not a phase mom!”) for the better. On our less-than-formal review of the Twilight soundtrack, we go track-by-track and debate if any soundtrack has ever had the groundbreaking impact as Twilight’s.

We know she's not perfect, but is Bella Swan downright toxic? Could we be friends with her? How do we interpret her situationship with Jacob? We reflect on our former idealization of Bella's character and why her downfalls impact the way we view her now as a main character.
