Great show! Got a question.

Love the show. Great research and audio. What are your thoughts on the symbol found on the door leading to IT’s home? It’s not in either film versions, and is not explained as far as I can tell. Do you guys know what it is?

Somewhere the King is Smiling

I've been a huge Stephen King fan for most of my life, but Tiny and Matt put me to shame. I enjoy listening to their coverage on King's books, movies, and tv shows. I even found out about the Dark Tower series which i'm really enjoying, currently on book 4. Recently enjoyed all the Pet Sematary coverage and can't wait until they get to my favorite book The Stand. Really enjoy this podcast and interacting with the hosts!

Great for the new Stephen King fan

I'm fairly new to Stephen King fandom, but had read several of his books over the years. He has so many books that I just didn't know where to start. This is where Tower Junkies comes in.

Matt and Tiny focus on The Dark Tower series, and how other Stephen King books interact with the Dark Tower universe. As someone who hasn't read The Dark Tower, I've been focusing on all the other reviews, from the spoiler-free sections. I have really been enjoying them.

The only problem I've found with this podcast, is that afterwards you will find yourself buying a bunch more books or movies.
