Let's Talk Twilight: Team Edward vs. Team Jacob with Nico Pengin


Admit it! This was an argument you have had at least once in your life! Going to school and knowing that your choice was the superior one, but no on! You also had reasons, and backups to your reasons, and backups to your backups! This week, Nico Pengin and I debate a question that completely defined and divided an entire fandom community. Granted, I have always been a strong Team Edward supporter, if not for the fact that IT IS CANNON! My guest, Nico Pengin joins us on the podcast to change my mind, your minds, and give some of you long time Team Jacob supports the answers, reasons, and responses you have known ALL ALONG!

Nico and I take on this topic if not only to keep the conversation going, but to discuss some important aspects that Stephanie Meyer's Twilight Sagas portrayed. While defining a generation by asking one simple question, it is no surprise that the debate has continued; but in a world filled with new love, unforgotten pasts, and danger at every turn, how do you choose between a Vampire and a Werewolf?

Nico Pengin:

Self Published Author

Nico Pengin is a gamer tag inspired by a human named Nico. At that time, I was signing up for Club Penguin, for those of us that can remember. I’ve never been the best speller, so the name just stuck, and I have been using it ever since.

Even so, I have been an avid reader since my parents put a book in front of me, and I have been getting lost in the world of the words I read thenceforth. My imagination runs truly wild. I enjoy writing every story that comes to my mind.

In my free time, I like to learn as much as I can. Reading a lot of information online, on forums, articles, listening to audiobooks on Libby, blogs and informational YouTube channels. I play League of Legends every so often, ask me what I main. Additionally, I enjoy working out, spending time with my family, you know, living life to the fullest.

My favorite book series is Redwall by the late and great Brian Jacques, who used vivid descriptions to write for blind children. I’m also a big fan of Eiichiro Oda’s manga, One Piece, and his ability to create many story lines within one series.

Currently, I am in the process of creating a book series, and comic called Batey, regarding the inspiration of my native heritage, the Tainos of the Caribbean.
