In a striking departure from typical formatting, Reed and Nathan discuss three non-horror short stories by Stephen King: "The Man in the Black Suit" and "All That You Love Will Be Carried Away" from the collection, Everything's Eventual, and "Morality" from the collection, The Bazaar of Bad Dreams.

After briefly summarizing each tale, they unpack both the unique and interconnected themes on display in them, including the role of choice in moral fiber, the very nature of evil, and the complicated and necessary search for meaning.

It's a hearty and heart-filled discussion this week that you won't want to miss.
