“We are going to fight. We are going to be hurt. And in the end, we will stand.”

Constant Listeners, don’t be fooled by the soothing sounds of the ocean, for there are terrifying evils within the water. Stand up, gather your mind, and look around. You’ll see there are three doors waiting for you. Choose wisely.

Join Losers Dan Caffrey, Ahse Digg, Dan Pfleegor, and McKenzie Gerber as they return to Mid-World to continue their epic quest with Stephen King’s 1987 sequel, The Dark Tower II: The Drawing of the Three. Together, they follow Roland Deschain through other worlds and dodge all sorts of trouble as the weathered gunslinger assembles his ka-tet.

Listen above and return next week when the Losers try to keep their own fingers in another edition of Lobstrosities, where they dissect one godawful King movie sequel.
