Constant Listeners, it’s time to share some Needful Tweets, maybe swing around to Hollywood King, and most certainly clean our ol’ Bag of Bones. It’s the calm before the storm that’s descending upon Derry, Maine.

For this week’s episode, Losers Michael Roffman, Dan Caffrey, and Justin Gerber meditate on memorable Stephen King connections in pop culture, discuss their ensuing woes with It: Chapter Two, dream up some possible King-inspired Saturday morning cartoons, and answer every other daring question in their Bag of Bones.

Listen above and return next week as the Losers finally return to Derry for one hell of a confrontation with King’s 1986 epic, It.

Chapters include: Intro, Needful Tweets (4:00), Hollywood King (12:30), Bag of Bones (18:30), and Outro (1:33:30)
