In January 2017, five friends gathered around a single microphone to dissect Stephen King‘s Carrie. Since then, they’ve spent more than half a decade making their way through King’s Dominion, chronicling his novels, his short stories, his essays, his adaptations, hell, even his recommendations. It’s been a journey, to say the least, and one that’s far from over. Of course, as with anything in life, there are surprises … and this week’s episode is one of ’em.

Today, Stephen King joins the Losers for an hour-long discussion chock full of insight and humor. Together, they discuss how he discovered the podcast, the roots behind this September’s Fairy Tale, the status of his third book with Peter Straub, and a new novella with venomous fangs in a familiar story. Elsewhere, they also talk about transgressive horror, scatalogical humor, bar chords, aging friendships, corgis, and why he hasn’t gone soft.

Stream the conversation below and return next week when the Losers head to Milford, New York to unpack Peter Straub’s 1979 horror novel Ghost Story and how it relates to King’s Dominion.
