One fan's attempt to do some analysis of Stephen King's fiction, non-fiction and poetry. From Carrie to the top of the Dark Tower, King is a huge presence in the marketplace. But what does his work tell us about ourselves? And what will last of his work?

Some good podcasts
I enjoyed the podcast with the director of the Everything's Eventual dollar baby movie and thought the interview with the artist who sung a version of Barn Dance from Bag of Bones was pretty good.
Maybe it is just that my interests are more into books or music and movies but the interview with the lady who specializes in mentally handicapped people was pretty bad.
This podcast while interesting doesnt really discuss Kings works or the man himself for the most part and I think if at least half the podcast did do that it would be far better.
Just my opinion of course.
Excellent Thought-provoking Podcast
An excellent podcast with good insight into King and his works. It features great interviews with those directly and indirectly related to King's output in various mediums as well as thought provoking comments from the host. The podcast will also keep you up with all the latest news on what is transpiring in the world of Stephen King, including productions in various media - movies, TV, graphic novels and even music. Best of all while not taking a pop-culture junk food angle on King's work neither does the podcast take a highly lieterary viewpoint. Approaching things smack dab in the middle as books that are fun and enjoyable to read for the masses but contain content and craft that is worth exploring intellectually and emotionally is just the right way to examine King. Download and enjoy this unique podcast on the world's best selling author of books for adults!
