A Stephen King Podcast For Stephen King Obsessives 

    The Drawing of the Three with Matt Fraction

    The Drawing of the Three with Matt Fraction

    Legendary comic book author Matt Fraction (Hawkeye and Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen) joins Vespe and Wampler break down one of the most entertaining books in The Dark Tower series. Is this book King's subconscious grappling with addiction? How do the hosts relate to each of the characters introduced? Is the Machete Order of reading this series still a dividing wedge between Vespe and Wampler? All those questions and more are answered in this super-sized deep-dive into The Dark Tower: The Drawing of the Three.

    Also, if you're spoilerphobic we don't really discuss anything post book 3, so no end-of-series revelations if you're curious but not finished with the books just yet.

    The Mist with David Yarovesky

    The Mist with David Yarovesky

    Director David Yarovesky (Brightburn and Netflix's Nightbooks) joins Wampler and Vespe to talk about gateway horror, the power of creativity, working with genre giants like James Gunn and Sam Raimi, dick elephants and, of course, Frank Darabont's balls of steel. Lots of talk about the film's brutal ending, so if you haven't seen it... well, shame on you, but also you've been warned.

    Secret Window with Kate Siegel

    Secret Window with Kate Siegel

    Returning Kingcast champ Kate Siegel (The Haunting of Hill House, Hush) joins the boys to talk about the questionable 2004 Johnny Depp adaptation of Stephen King's Secret Window, Secret Garden. Prepare for spoilers as the gang digs into the (limited) stuff they liked about this movie and the tons of stuff they didn't as well as some fun chatter about Siegel's upcoming re-team with Mike Flanagan in Netflix's Midnight Mass.

    Topics include: Dick holsters, Stephen King's obsession with corn, newfound sobriety, is Johnny Depp salvageable at this point, some terrifying stories of crazed Stephen King fans and, on the opposite side of that coin, the incredibly supportive fanbase that Kate has built up over the years.

    It's a banger!

Come for the discussion on how grief and loss are the at the center of this King novel and it's damn good HBO mini-series adaptation and stay for the many different creepy spider stories SGJ has in his back pocket. Also, the boys finally answer the age old question: How could Pennywise the Dancing Clown scare a dinosaur? You get all that plus a heroic mullet story to boot! This is a wild one, folks.

    The Dead Zone with Patrick Fischler

    The Dead Zone with Patrick Fischler

    The great character actor Patrick Fischler joins Wampler and Vespe to discuss Stephen King's The Dead Zone and the David Cronenberg adaptation. Of course, Wampler interrogates our poor guest about his work with David Lynch before diving into the topic at hand. What are some key differences between the book and the movie? How come The Dead Zone is still somehow underrated as an adaptation? Why is Christopher Walken so great in this movie? What would we do with Dead Zone psychic powers? And how does a breakfast with Kurt Russell tie into everything? You'll have to listen to find out!

I didn’t know how much I would love this show!

Discovered this show by accident and I love it! Guests are amazing. Hosts are great and it’s a deep dives into the books of Stephen King!

ContagiousCargo ,

Kate Siegel is a very insightful guest. Hope you bring her back for more.

Wonderful guests all around but Kate knows her stuff.

Shelf Monkey ,

Great fun.

So far, lots of fun, with interesting conversations and fine guests. However, I will withhold my final judgement of love until they get to the absolute insanity of The Mangler.
