Episode 5 – At the End of Our Trope: Love Triangles

Love Triangle We’re back, and we come bearing a new segment: At the End of Our Trope, where we discuss tropes and cliches that make us want to punch kittens. This week we’re complaining about discussing the bane of YA’s existence, the dreaded ~love triangle~. We try to keep the talk triangle-centered, but as usual, we do end up touching on a few other subjects, like stalker boyfriends, white-washing, LGBT erasure, angel stank, and mean girls.

Personally, I’m hoping our next episode can be about that last part.


Also, we apologize for the echo in the first third of the podcast. IT DOES GET BETTER LATER ON, WE PROMISE.

Posts we reference in the cast:

  • Young Adult Storylines – The Requisite Love Triangle
  • Love Triangles in YA Fiction – Yes or No?
  • Dear YA Authors: I’m Getting Sick and Tired of Love Triangles
  • On YA Books that Make Abusive Stalkerish Horrible Relationships Seem Like They’re Okay – HERE ME ROAR
  • And we should be back in the next couple of weeks with a Host review. JOY.
