Every week, a grizzled old horror fan and writer meets up with a Stephen King Constant Reader who's half his age and twice as smart to talk about an SK novel and its movie, TV, and/or audiobook incarnations. Good? Bad? Worth it? Wasted? Find out as Brad and Cat argue and celebrate, threaten and learn from each other, and generally enjoy themselves ... and see how It All Fits Together in the Dark Multiverse of Stephen King.
Episode 40 - Thanksgiving 2019
Happy Thanksgiving! It's a small celebration of Food and Stephen King, in his stories -- from It to Thinner, from The Briar Rose Cafe in Cutter's Mill to Midworld itself to that ... unfortunate incident at The Gotham Cafe -- and from real life, including real, live King-inspired foods, some great web sites for King-culinary weirdness, and a re-visit to our very own DMoSK Kitchen for a testing of the latest Red Apron recipes. Good news: some of us actually survive. Enjoy ... and have a great holiday!
Episode 38 - Doctor Sleep
Cat and Brad saw Mike Flanagan's amazing interpretation of the sequel to The Shining, and BOY do they have some things to say. It's a spoilerific exploration of another amazing adaptation, different but in many ways just as good as the book itself, and we go into detail in our mini-celebration of What Went Right this time around. Strap on our mucklucks and join us in the snowy ruins of the Overlook Hotel!
Episode 37 - Castle Rock, Season 2
It's finallyl here! A brand new season of Castle Rock on Hulu, and Cat and Brad take to her bed and watch the first two episodes! It's all about a young Annie Wilkes (still crazy before all these years), an aging Pops Merril, the reluctant head of his idiot Castle Rock crime family, and a whole lot of creepy things happening in the ruins of the Marston House over in Jeruselem's Lot. So catch it on Hulu and join us. Plus: a special message from our mascot!
Episode 36 - Graveyard Shift
One of King's early short stories from almost fifty years ago became a really pretty lousy movie about thirty years ... and here we are talking about Graveyard Shift, as well as dishing on the horrible true story of a rat that tried to ruin Brad's life ... and would no die. Learn the truth about Ratsputin, and what lies beneath the cotton mill, is this week's giddy new ep!
Episode 35 - In the Tall Grass
The Stephen King/Joe Hill novella was just released as a Netflix feature ... and in this ep, we stagger into the original story, then watch the new movie and go deep into the green with that weird new arrival as well. It's a rough, wild ride and worth every minute. So read the story, watch the movie on Netflix and join us ... if you daaaaare! More info at our website, DarkMultiPod.com.

Mini-Episode 34.5: If It Bleeds, The Institute, Castle Rock Ruins Tour & More!
Up-to-date rumors and pointless innuendo about If It Bleeds, King's next book, and The Institute, King's last book, and a weird little ad about the entirely mythical but eqally insane "Castle Rock Ruins Tour." Yes: it's the mini-episode for October 4 ... and beyond!
Anyone know this story title?
Several years ago a family member gave him a Stephen King story about a 👨🏻🎨 whose 🖼 came alive and was trying to kill him and his family. I think he lived in a house near the beach. Does anyone know which one of his stories this is? I never got to finish reading it and would very much like to read it again to completion. Thanks so much!
Sometimes dead is better.
Great conversations about King’s body of work and the expanded universe of movies and TV shows. The hosts have great chemistry and know their stuff.
Could be awesome
Brad has lots of insight on all things King. Cat is useless and annoying in how she constantly interrupts him with her mostly incorrect and totally irrelevant babble
