Politics

To those complaining about the politics included in the podcast, have you never seen a horror movie? Political anxieties of the time and horror have always gone hand in hand.

Great show guys! Looking forward to hearing more in the future

Great concept

I really like the theme of covering a book AND its movie adaptation. Audio quality could be a little better, but perhaps it’s a symptom of recording remotely during quarantine? Interesting guests.

Side note, I also listened to the same audiobook version of The Running Man with the spoiler in the introduction and was equally dismayed.

Strong start!!

Loving this podcast so far and the format is pretty interesting and unique. Both hosts and guests are really awesome and have a clear interest in King. One thing to improve upon is maybe tackling/acknowledging some of King’s writing faults(race, gender, etc) in a more middle ground way instead of just glossing over them. Otherwise keep up the great work!!
