“Dreams, after all, are insubstantial things, like mist itself.”

Constant Listeners, seek shelter fast. There’s something in the mist. Something terrifying. Something from another world. And, yes, there are other worlds than these. Keep your eyes peeled and stay away from the windows.

Join Losers Justin Gerber, Michael Roffman, McKenzie Gerber, and Mel Kassel as they hole up in their local grocery store to evade Stephen King’s 1985 novella, The Mist. While there, they also chat about Frank Darabont’s incredible 2007 adaptation.
