Love Obsession and Sewage Spills Out of Stephen Kings Just After Sunset [The Losers Club Podcast]

“I sometimes picture these unfortunates as men and women being pecked to death by predatory birds. The birds are invisible – at least until a psychiatrist who is good, or lucky, or both, sprays them with his version of Luminol and shines the right light on them – but they are nevertheless very real. The wonder is that so many OCDs manage to live productive lives, just the same. They work, they eat (often not enough or too much, it’s true), they go to movies, they make love to their girlfriends and boyfriends, their wives and husbands . . . and all the time those birds are there, clinging to them and pecking away little bits of flesh.”

And how! For all the Constant Readers who similarly suffer from obsessive compulsive disorder, “N.” is a special slice of terror from Stephen King, making Just After Sunset a very unique read, to say the least. Without spoiling today’s episode, not all of the Losers are immune to the harrowing story’s infinite and timeless grasp, and boy do they let it show.

In the second of two episodes dedicated to Just After Sunset, Losers Jenn Adams, Michael Roffman, Ashley Casseday, and Mel Kassel return to finish their ranking of all 13 tales. Together, they dance to country music alone at night, stave off the pull of Ackerman’s Field, and try to keep their wits as they crawl through the foulest trenches of humanity.

Stream both episodes below and stay tuned for their three-episode coverage of Under the Dome. For further adventures, join the Losers’ Club over long days and pleasant nights via Apple Podcasts, Spotify, RadioPublic, Acast, Google Podcasts, and RSS.
