    29/03/2019 Duration: 01h29min

    In this week’s episode, special guest Brian Asman joins us to talk about the short story Stephen King only wrote because he lost a bet. “Herman Wouk is Still Alive” demonstrates many things, especially the fact that even in 2011 Stephen King still suffered from an embarrassing case of fat-phobia. Also, what the hell is with the children’s first names in this story? Was that also part of the bet? SK NEWS (w/ substitute co-host Betty Rocksteady): The Dark Tower TV show casts its two leads, and Joe Hill has a new story collection coming out.

Uh-oh. Here's a drinking game for ya: Take a shot of bleach every time the word "elevated" is used.
