Founded in January 2017, The Losers’ Club is a weekly podcast for Constant Readers, horror hounds, and new fans of Stephen King to dig deep into the author’s oeuvre and the myriad TV, film, print, and stage adaptations of his work.
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.
What’s more, the series also features a number of special guests from various King-related productions. In the past, the Losers have spoken to Thomas Jane, Mick Garris, Jerry O’Connell, Mary Lambert, Wil Wheaton, and many, many more.
Join them as they carry out their journey through long days and pleasant nights.
