It's like spending some time with some good friends talking about King's books. It may not be everyone's cup of tea, but in between the banter, the group offers up great insights about King, his work, and adaptations of his work.

4166

Grab a flashlight, put on a pair of gloves, and make sure you've got a sturdy stomach -- we’re talkin’ true crime. The Losers welcome Disgraceland host Jake Brennan to discuss a conspiracy in King's Dominion -- one that involves the murder of John Lennon! Before all that, though, Jake explains how his love for Stephen King has led to his fascination with the macabre and how his New England home may be haunted. It's a truly spooktacular episode.

Frank Darabont's The Green Mile
7776

It's movie night at Georgia Pines and the Losers are invited. Together, they grab a seat and watch a matinee presentation of Frank Darabont's 1999 Oscar-nominated epic The Green Mile starring the one and only Thomas Hanks.

They'll also discuss the brilliant castings of Sam Rockwell and Doug Hutchison, the '90s Planet Hollywood-era, how the Mile brought King back to the Oscars, and Hollywood's problematic relationship with the Magical Negro trope.

The Green Mile Pt. 2

Stay tuned for the film adaptation in December.

Join Dan Caffrey, Jenn Adams, Dan Pfleegor, and Michael Roffman as they begin their coverage of Stephen King's 1996 serialized novel, The Green Mile. In the first of two episodes dedicated to the book, they discuss its themes of atonement, King's controversial use of the Magical Negro trope, and whether or not Paul is a jerk.

Stay tuned for Part Two next week.

Rose Madder
11279

The spine cracks, the pages unfold, and the Losers are suddenly inside a world where paintings breathe and horned monsters bite down to the bone. At the center of it all is a woman on the verge of self-actualization, one she’ll achieve only after the huffing, puffing beast she left behind is gone for good.

Join Randall Colburn, Jenn Adams, McKenzie James, and returning guest Ana Marie Cox as they review 1995's Rose Madder. Together, they discuss King’s piecemeal use of a Greek myth, whether the villains are too evil, the struggles of building a new life from scratch, and whether this is an unofficial Eclipse novel.

Chapters include: Intro (:35), History (18:05), Structure & Format (1:26:00), Heroes & Villains (1:33:00), Misery (2:10:00), Word Processor of the Gods (2:20:00), Sematary (2:34:00), Poundcake (2:42:00), King’s Dominion (2:48:00), Final Thoughts (2:53:00), and Outro (3:06:00)

Insomnia
10494

The Losers return to Derry, Maine for some much-needed R&R. Maybe it's the pillow, or the weather, or straight-up allergies, but they just can't seem to get any shut-eye. Even worse, they're having these bizarre visions and being chased by little bald doctors. 

Join Randall Colburn, Ahse Digg, Dan Pfleegor, and Jenn Adams as they discuss the multiverse madness within Stephen King's 1994 horror fantasy novel Insomnia. Together, they discuss the grimy horror within and the many, many connections to The Dark Tower.

Somewhere along the way, they find a way to sleep.

Chapters include: Intro (:35), History (5:18), The Hook (23:00), Structure & Format (47:00), Heroes & Villains (54:25), Misery (1:40:45), Word Processor of the Gods (1:53:00), Sematary (2:03:00), Poundcake (2:17:45), King's Dominion (2:26:30), Maximum Spoilers (2:41:38), Overall Thoughts (2:45:51), and Outro (2:50:00).

Nightmares and Dreamscapes Adaptations
5970

The Losers are finally closing the book on Stephen King's Nightmares and Dreamscapes after two long months of coverage. To clean up shop, they're revisiting the remaining adaptations to discuss, specifically 2009’s Dolan’s Cadillac, 1997’s The Night Flier, "Chattery Teeth" from 1997’s Quicksilver Highway, and "The Moving Finger" from 1991’s Monsters. Unfortunately, they couldn't find a stream of "Sorry, Right Number" from the fourth season of Tales from the Darkside, so that one remains lost in the thinny. Alas, topics range from Christian Slater's mid-aughts career, to the sexual appeal of Miguel Ferrer, to the Golden Age of horror anthologies, and, naturally, to Tom Selleck. You've been warned.

“When an old man dies, a library burns.”

It's lonely out here in the Harrigan estate. The sun's dwindling through the windows, the African lilacs are all watered, everything's been cleaned two times over. The only thing left is silence and the echoes of history. Whatever was once inside has been left to the memories of those who lived it. In that sense, we all contain multitudes.

Join Losers Randall Colburn, Michael Roffman, Dan Caffrey, and Jenn Adams as they take a call from the grave, busk on the streets of Boston, and abscond to a rustic cabin upstate. Together, they review three out of the four stories within King's new novellas collection If It Bleeds: "Mr. Harrigan's Phone", "The Life of Chuck", and "Rat". Next week, they'll head to Finders Keepers to reunite with Holly, Jerome, and the rest of the gang.

Golden Years Pt. 2

The Shop... Shit... We're still in The Shop...

Every time, we think we're gonna wake up back in reality. When we were on the road, it was even worse. We'd wake up and there'd be Crews. Waiting. When we were here, I wanted to be there. When we were there, all we could think of was getting back to The Shop. We're here a week now, waiting to get younger, getting softer. Every minute we stay in this room, we get weaker. And every minute Andrews squats in the bush, he gets stronger. Each time we look around, the walls move in a little tighter...

Once again, the Losers are on the lam, painting cars and hitchhiking from town to town with de-aging janitor Harlan Williams. It's the final stretch of Stephen King's Golden Years, and things are getting crazy. There are sleepovers at grave sites, references to Captain Trips, kooky hippies with equally kooky explosions, and a total Poochie ending. Join Losers Randall Colburn, Michael Roffman, and Jenn Adams as they don some tie-dye shirts, fight the good fight, and take out The Shop once and for all.

This episode is sponsored by Stephen King's new novel If It Bleeds, which is currently on bookshelves everywhere.
