Founded in 2017, The Losers’ Club® is a weekly series that chronologically digs through the work of Stephen King with humor, irreverence, and a critical eye. Each episode, the Losers gather together to read between the iconic pages and share the latest in King’s Dominion, whether it’s the author’s oft-controversial tweets, the boldest Hollywood headlines, or his endless forthcoming projects. The series also regularly features special guests. In the past, the Losers have spoken to Mike Flanag ...
 
'And the Losers Are' is a podcast where three failing screenwriters discuss Oscar nominated and prominent films, while drinking enough alcohol to make this seem like a good idea. Each season takes a look at a decade of film. In each episode we discuss each year's Best Picture nominees, as well as five movies that didn't quite make it, before deciding our winners and losers. If films, political incorrectness, foul humor, and excessive drinking is your thing, this is the podcast for you.

Fun fact: Rose Red was originally conceived as a feature film for Steven Spielberg in 1996. Stephen King envisioned it as a loose remake of Robert Wise's 1963 film The Haunting (in other words, a take on the beloved Shirley Jackson novel The Haunting of Hill House). Instead, it was reworked years later as a TV miniseries that became a ratings smash…
 
This one. Oh boy, this one. In an attempt to tell the myth of the Corinthian King who was subjected to an afterlife of meaningless toil we end up rolling a few boulders of our own.

Stephen King and Peter Straub's Black House is an odd duck, a behemoth of a sequel (to The Talisman) that’s as grisly as it is hilarious.

Few Stephen King novels have as lousy a reputation as Dreamcatcher. Join the Losers as they probe and dissect a book that astounds as much as it baffles. Is it as bad as its reputation suggests?
