Different Seasons: The Body Hits Harder With Age

The Losers' Club combs through the third novella of 1982's Different Seasons

Stand By Me, '80s, Nostalgia, Rob Reiner
Stand By Me (Columbia)

“The most important things are the hardest things to say.”

We were 12 going on 13 the first time we saw a dead human being. It happened in the summer of 1960 — a long time ago, but only if you measure in terms of years. We were living in a small town in Maine called Castle Rock. There were only 1,281 people. But to us, it was the whole world.

Constant Listeners, join Losers McKenzie Gerber, Allison Shoemaker, Michael Roffman, and Justin Gerber as they head into the next section of Different Seasons, Stephen King’s 1982 collection of season-themed novellas.

Like the four close friends in “The Body”, they all come to startling revelations about the meaning of companionship and the sours of growing apart. They also meditate on Rob Reiner’s timeless adaptation, Stand by Me.

Listen below and don’t forget your comb.
