    The Green Mile Pt. 2

    The Green Mile Pt. 2

    The Losers are still roaming around the halls of Georgia Pines. They've had their eggs, they've eaten their toast, and they're still listening to Paul Edgecombe as he tells his story over a warm glass of orange juice. The end is near, though.

    Join Dan Caffrey, Jenn Adams, Dan Pfleegor, and Michael Roffman as they reach the last pages of Stephen King's 1996 serialized novel, The Green Mile. In the second of two episodes dedicated to the book, they discuss its blemishes, its beauties, and its bones.

    They also discuss the loose connections to King's other works (there is one intriguing tie to The Dark Tower), the many, many slices of poundcake within, and eventually how many bright-red Pennywise clown noses this novel deserves.

    Stay tuned for the film adaptation in December.

    Chapters include: Intro, Misery (6:30), Sematary (25:00), Word Processor (45:00), Mudcake (1:00:00), King’s Dominion (1:15:00), Final Thoughts (1:24:00), and Outro (1:38:00)

    Futher reading: Stephen King's Magical Negro Problem Isn't Magical, Stephen King's Super-Duper Magical Negroes, Magical Negro: From The Green Mile to Get Out, and Stephen King Needs More Black Friends

    The Green Mile Pt. 1

    The Green Mile Pt. 1

    The Losers have left Maine for the balmy confines of Georgia Pines. It's here they listen to a curious old man by the name of Paul Edgecombe. There's no telling how old he is, but those weathered eyes of his speak to multiple lifetimes. 

    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.

    Chapters include: Intro, The Hook (16:05), Structure & Format (37:45), Heroes & Villains (54:15), and Outro (2:34:00)

    Futher reading: Stephen King's Magical Negro Problem Isn't Magical, Stephen King's Super-Duper Magical Negroes, Magical Negro: From The Green Mile to Get Out, and Stephen King Needs More Black Friends

A King of Pods

I just started listening to podcasts and recently discovered all the amazing shows from Consequence Podcast Network. Love love love the Loser’s Club, I learn something new about my favourite King books/movies/miniseries with every listen. Much love to all of the hosts but extra appreciation for Jenn and Mel 💜 Thanks for all your work!

Five Bright Red Shiny Pennywise Clown Noses

Every new podcast they make, makes my day. I always follow finishing a Stephen King book/movie with a podcast from the Losers. Thanks.

A pandemic treat

I’m a big fan of the Loser’s and their club. I have been re-inspired to read my King collection during this pandemic and I love having a podcast like this to challenge my interpretation or to get some agreement within my own head. Unfortunately, I’ve also been catching up on a lot of S.K. Cenimatic Adaptations and tho most look dated, I appreciate the Loser’s giving me their insights. Thanks for being my essential service.
