‘Big Driver’ and ‘A Good Marriage’ Make a Dark Double Stephen King Feature [The Losers’ Club Podcast]

In all of Stephen King’s massive catalog, few works are as bleak as his 2010 novella collection Full Dark, No Stars. Rather than supernatural entities, these four dark tales feature human monsters and deal with the horrors that live inside the human heart. Two novellas serve as mirror images of each other, exploring the female […]

’11/22/63′: Stephen King and JFK Conspiracies with James DiEugenio [The Losers’ Club Podcast]

We (mostly) kept JFK conspiracy talk out of our 11/22/63 episodes, as the story is best enjoyed on Stephen King‘s terms.
