show episodes
 
Tower Junkies is a podcast celebrating the work of Stephen King with a special focus on his magnum opus, The Dark Tower series. We discuss the themes, characters, and mythology of the series in “palaver” episodes and review the books and comic series in “khef” episodes. We also discuss non-Tower King novels, TV and film adaptations of King’s work, and the latest news about all things Stephen King. Presented by ObsessiveViewer.com.
 
Head to head competitive roasting with host Matt Maran. The show is live every Tuesday at 9:30 from The Stand Comedy Club in NYC. The newest 15 episodes are always free, but if you want access to all the archives, watch live, chat live, access to the forums, and get the show a week before it comes out everywhere else - you can subscribe now at gasdigitalnetwork.com
