A Stephen King Podcast For Stephen King Obsessives 

    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!

    The Outsider with Stephen Graham Jones

    Celebrated horror author Stephen Graham Jones (The Only Good Indians, My Heart Is A Chainsaw) joins the Kingcast boys to discuss one of the newer entries in Stephen King's catalogue: The Outsider. 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!

    Revival with David Lowery

    Revival with David Lowery

    The Green Knight and Pete's Dragon director David Lowery joins the boys to dissect one of King's most disturbing novels: Revival. It's the story of a lovely preacher who toys around with a secret electricity and tries to find out once and for all what's behind the veil of death. Spoiler alert: he doesn't like what he finds.

    Lowery discusses the existential horror at hand and how he would approach this particular adaptation, including a somewhat controversial change to the novel.

    As an added bonus, Vespe and Wampler spill a little bit on what Mike Flanagan's now scrapped Revival adaptation looked like, including some fascinating changes to the source material that would have absolutely killed had he gotten to make the movie.

    All that and more in this week's episode!

Exactly what you’d expect, exactly what you’d want

Hosts Eric Vespe and Scott Wampler have ample background on the Stephen King canon and passion for genre films & fiction. Their voices are eminently listenable: if beers could talk, they would sound like Vespe & Wampler. Their guests are top-notch. The Kingcast is one of the best horror and fiction podcasts out there.

Don’t miss an episode

The only podcast I am a patreon subscriber of because every episode is good. The hosts are fun and down to earth. Not pretentious at all.
