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.

They also discuss favorite scenes, the best needle drops, and whether or not we'll see any footage from the cutting room floor.

Grab a flashlight, put on a pair of gloves, and make sure you've got a sturdy stomach -- we’re talkin’ true crime.

They'll also discuss the brilliant castings of Sam Rockwell and Doug Hutchison, the '90s Planet Hollywood-era, how the Mile brought King back to the Oscars, and Hollywood's problematic relationship with the Magical Negro trope.

The Losers are still roaming around the halls of Georgia Pines. They've had their eggs, they've eaten their toast, and they're still listening to Paul Edgecombe as he tells his story over a warm glass of orange juice. The end is near, though. Join Dan Caffrey, Jenn Adams, Dan Pfleegor, and Michael Roffman as they reach the last pages of Stephen King's 1996 serialized novel, The Green Mile. In the second of two episodes dedicated to the book, they discuss its blemishes, its beauties, and its bones. They also discuss the loose connections to King's other works (there is one intriguing tie to The Dark Tower), the many, many slices of poundcake within, and eventually how many bright-red Pennywise clown noses this novel deserves. Stay tuned for the film adaptation in December. Chapters include: Intro, Misery (6:30), Sematary (25:00), Word Processor (45:00), Mudcake (1:00:00), King’s Dominion (1:15:00), Final Thoughts (1:24:00), and Outro (1:38:00) Futher reading: Stephen King's Magical Negro Problem Isn't Magical, Stephen King's Super-Duper Magical Negroes, Magical Negro: From The Green Mile to Get Out, and Stephen King Needs More Black Friends Follow us on Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Patreon --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
