Co-host of the Losers Club: A Stephen King Podcast. Writer with The A.V. Club and Consequence of Sound.
The Losers are still stuck in Desperation, where they're starting to realize things aren't exactly as they appear. No, you might say there's a supernatural presence in the air. Hell, even the coyotes and critters are beginning to take on a strange demeanor. Reunite with Losers Randall Colburn, Jenn Adams, Dan Pfleegor, and Ana Marie Cox as they continue their coverage of Stephen King's 1996 novel. In the second of two episodes dedicated to the book, they discuss Tak, body horror, and the terror of unbridled authority. Stay tuned for The Regulators in March.

The Losers head down Highway 50 out in Nevada and make a pit stop in a small mining town called Desperation. It's hot, it's eerie, and it's seemingly abandoned. To their surprise, though, there's a lone deputy waving them in. He seems nice. Join Losers Randall Colburn, Jenn Adams, Dan Pfleegor, and Ana Marie Cox as they begin their coverage of Stephen King's 1996 novel. In the first of two episodes dedicated to the book, they discuss its themes of addiction, relationship to faith, and grisly scenery. Things take an emotional turn when the Losers weigh in on how they personally react to the book, their own evolving journeys with religion, and their own experiences with addiction, recovery, and AA. Needless to say, there is much to mine in Desperation. Stay tuned for Part Two next week.

The Losers reunite with The Stand showrunner Benjamin Cavell for their own coda to their weekly coverage. Together, they discuss the themes behind Stephen King's new ending, the political allusions that naturally surfaced amidst the series, and why Alexander Skarsgard's portrayal of Randall Flagg feels different without Vegas. They also discuss favorite scenes, the best needle drops, and whether or not we'll see any footage from the cutting room floor.

Our weekly coverage of The Stand on CBS All Access concludes! Join Losers Randall Colburn, Michael Roffman, Jenn Adams, and McKenzie Gerber as they hit the road with Stu and Frannie. Along the way, the four discuss Stephen King's new coda, how it fits into the original 1978 novel, the half dozen Easter eggs littered throughout, and, finally, which performances they prefer between the 1994 version and this adaptation.
