“The clown seized his arm.”

Constant Listeners, sit back, relax, and finish those Chinese leftovers. Why? We’re going to be in Derry for quite some time, and now that you know the rich history, it’s time to roll up your sleeves and step into the grey water with us.

Join Losers McKenzie Gerber, Michael Roffman, Dan Caffrey, and Mel Kassel as they head into the Barrens of Stephen King’s 1986 epic in this exhaustive second episode, which dissects both “Part 1: The Shadow Before” and “Mike Hanlon’s Derry: The First Interlude”. There are heroes, there are villains, there is a long discussion about Al Pacino.

Listen above and return next week when the Losers finally get into the actual story as they head straight into “Part 1: The Shadow Before”.
