Good episode? Give it some love!
The Losers have left Maine for the balmy confines of Georgia Pines. It's here they listen to a curious old man by the name of Paul Edgecombe. There's no telling how old he is, but those weathered eyes of his speak to multiple lifetimes. 

Join Dan Caffrey, Jenn Adams, Dan Pfleegor, and Michael Roffman as they begin their coverage of Stephen King's 1996 serialized novel, The Green Mile. In the first of two episodes dedicated to the book, they discuss its themes of atonement, King's controversial use of the Magical Negro trope, and whether or not Paul is a jerk.

Stay tuned for Part Two next week.

Chapters include: Intro, The Hook (16:05), Structure & Format (37:45), Heroes & Villains (54:15), and Outro (2:34:00)

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
