    Remember that time Stephen King read Raymond Carver for the first time and responded by writing a truly awful short story? Yeah, we never forgot, either. That's right, we're talking about "Premium Harmony" from 2015's The Bazaar of Bad Dreams! SK News: Gwendy's Button Box, The Mist, and tour dates for Sleeping Beauties. Support us on Patreon! If we meet our $300 stretch goal, we'll turn this show into a weekly broadcast. Also, don't forget to rate and review!

    Could Dorito dust mutate your fingers into tiny eyeballs? Possibly! Let's find out in the latest episode of Castle Rock Radio. We're talking about King's "I Am the Doorway" from 1978's Night Shift with special guest Andrew Hilbert (author of Invasion of the Weirdos). Featured topics include leprosy and how to eat sloppy joes with hook hands. Oh, and we're super disappointed with that Dark Tower trailer, but that won't stop us from actually watching the movie. Probably.

We talk a lot about pee in this episode, folks. Prepare yourselves. SK news: A brand new trailer for The Mist TV show has been released and for some reason "My Pretty Pony" is being adapted into a film. We end our show with a one-star review of King's It, brought to you by an Amazon reviewer named Jimmy.

    Special guest Richard Thomas (founder of Gamut Magazine) joins Max and Lori in a discussion on King's "The Things They Left Behind" from 2008's Just After Sunset. Thomas talks about reprinting the story for his magazine and the small fortune of King books he keeps in his basement, in case you were looking for somebody to rob. SK news includes a NEW Dark Tower release date (thanks a lot, Emoji Movie), the long-awaited It trailer, and a cover reveal for Sleeping Beauties.

    "lady fingers they taste just like lady fingers..." Special guest Bob Pastorella (author of Mojo Rising and co-host of the This is Horror podcast) joins Max and Lori in a discussion on King's super gross story "Survivor Type" from 1985's Skeleton Crew. SK News includes poster and release date for The Dark Tower movie, the tragic loss of Bernie Wrightson, and apparently someone's making a documentary about the original It movie. Come for the cannibalism, stay for The Rock puns.
