“You were starting to sound a little like a Stephen King novel.”

Constant Listeners, are you hungry? No, of course not. That stomach of yours isn’t grumbling from a lack of food, it’s an unstoppable evil coursing through your veins … living inside of you … devouring you … deleting you.

Join Losers Randall Colburn, Michael Roffman, Ahse Digg, and Justin Gerber as they chow down on Whoppers and Big Macs to stave off the curse of Richard Bachman’s Stephen King’s 1984 thriller, Thinner.
