A Stephen King Podcast For Stephen King Obsessives 

    It with Guillermo del Toro

    It with Guillermo del Toro

    Guillermo del Toro joins Vespe and Wampler for an exciting chat about all things King with a special focus on "It." The discussion jumps back and forth between other King titles, like Carrie and 'Salem's Lot (wait until you hear about del Toro's first read-through of this one), as well as some talk about Lovecraft, specifically about what his future with At the Mountains of Madness might be.

    Other topics discussed: Why are clowns so damn scary? What other King book is It a sister story to? Which King novel would del Toro like a crack at adapting? Why does King have such a good insight into the mind of children? And so much more!

    An Interview with Bronson Pinchot

    An Interview with Bronson Pinchot

    In this Kingcast Interview, Bronson Pinchot comes ready to talk about his role in The Langoliers, his pretty epic introduction to Stephen King on that set, his reading of the audio book for King's Eyes of the Dragon and, yes, of course, some Balki stories. Throw in a little True Romance and some very explicit ADR stories and you get one hell of an entertaining episode.

    Gerald's Game with Charles Soule

    Gerald's Game with Charles Soule

    The great comic book writer and the novelist behind the new Star Wars: The High Republic series joins Wampler and Vespe to discuss Gerald's Game. The discussion ping-pongs between King's original novel and Mike Flanagan's impressive Netflix adaptation. Would any of the hosts or guest survive in Jessie Burlingame's situation? How great is Carla Gugino in this movie, tho? And how disturbing is Henry Thomas? All that and more discussed in this episode.

    No Smoking with Rahul Kohli and Kate Siegel

    No Smoking with Rahul Kohli and Kate Siegel

    Kate Siegel makes a triumphant return to The Kingcast and this time she brought along her Midnight Mass co-star Rahul Kohli to discuss one of the weirdest damn things we've ever talked about on the show.

    It's an absolutely chaotic episode as we try to make any sense out of this bonkers movie, which includes (but is not limited to) reattachable fingers, a Bob Fosse-inspired musical number, the Russian Army and a weird fascination with Hitler.

    Rahul and Kate also talk quite a bit about Midnight Mass, so if you haven't finished the show be warned up front: here there be spoilers!

    Rose Madder with Mallory O'Meara

    Rose Madder with Mallory O'Meara

    Returning Kingcast champion (and the originator of Chutt Buggins) Mallory O'Meara joins Wampler and Vespe to break down and defend the much derided domestic abuse tale Rose Madder.

    This episode has everything: laughing at an angry cop getting peed on, minotaur talk, a bobcat sighting live on air, establishing Chutt Buggins' respect for women, the patriarchy claiming booze for themselves and, yes, the baseball horn.

Absolutely Fantastic

I love hearing all the guest’s bringing in their unique views on King’s massive library. I especially like how inclusive the show is of LGBTQ+ people and themes. Scott and Eric are amazing hosts and they’ve gotten me through weeks of dock work at this point.

Having read the source material should be a pre-requisite for guests!!!

I read/listened to EVERY Stephen King work over the pandemic. After annoying my wife with my re-caps, I was desperate to hear these works discussed by knowledgable fellow fans. I’ve gone through roughly 1/4 of these podcasts, but can’t recommend them and probably won’t finish because MANY of the guests have not read the books they are on to discuss. What’s the point of trashing an adapted mini-series or crappy film and not talking about the book?

I would SO much rather hear rabid, intelligent fans of King’s WRITING discuss the books and subsequent film treatments vs. “industry” folk (most of whom are unknown to the general public) talk about the failures of adaptations perpetuated by others. Elijah Wood and Josh Ruben eps were especially irritating… couldn’t finish. I would challenge the hosts to seek out guests who are true fans, and have made time to read (or at least listen to the audiobooks) of King’s works rather than “names” who embarrass themselves with only a passing familiarity of a few adaptations.
