Eddie was working in a bridal shop in Flushing, Queens, ’til this podcast came along and truly changed the world! Aside from never reading any books and obnoxiously interrupting anyone who has, Eddie’s many talents include: Never letting this Nanny joke go, killing it at karaoke (as in straight up murder for the ears), and just being generally handsome and wonderful. What’s that, you ask? What is the episode about? Oh, just some great books (think Gilly MacMillan & C.J. Tudor) and films (Stephen King’s 80’s masterpiece Christine) … but back to Eddie!
Oh snap! I guess Lee and Eddie are off to the movies again! That’s right, tuck a mini burrito in your jacket pocket, and sneak several fun-sized chocolate bars into your socks cause it’s time for IT: Chapter Two! Eddie finally read a book from this century and felt pretty good about it (and then obviously complained). And the two of them explore the idea of Pennywise as the embodiment of bigotry.
Too deep? Yeah, me too… Pocket burrito anyone?
Hoo boy! Eddie has been waiting to watch the IT Part Two trailer just for you guys! Will IT live up to the hype? Will IT be too scary for Eddie to survive? Hard to say, you’d better tune in! And while you’re here we’ve got some great recommendations for your bookshelves! Lee’s keeping that contemporary feel coming with CJ Tudor’s amazing debut, The Chalk Man. Is it a biography of Eddie’s secret undercover life as Banksy? Probably not!
Meanwhile, Eddie wants to start a fight on the internet, because let’s face it, the internet? Wayyyyyy to civil and full of friendly discussion! That’s right, Eddie loves trash, and will do anything for that love–except diss Patricia Cornwell! It’s on!
Oh dang! Guess who it is now (still Lee and Eddie)! We’re back, and never stopping not stopping! This episode we discuss Jordan Peele’s new horrific masterpiece: US, Michelle Dicinoski’s surprisingly non-spooky Ghost Wife, and Stephen King (as Bachman) is back(man)!
We’re also excited to announce the launch of our digital beta and sensitivity reading service, Frank & Co.! Beta reading is a critical step designed to strengthen a writer’s work on the road to publishing! Frank & Co. beta readers will test read your manuscript from the perspective of a general reader and provide a comprehensive report on a whole range of factors including consistency, structural effectiveness, pacing, voice, characterisation, readability, and reader satisfaction!
We’ve had many requests for beta reading from Crime Time listeners over the years, and we’re thrilled to finally be able to offer this service to our book community! Because we’re family here at Crime Time, we’re offering a 20% discount when you use the code “launch20” at checkout.
Well a happy new year to all of our lovely listeners! Welcome to part one of a spectacularly exciting 2018 retrospective!
Join Lee and Eddie as they shoot the shit and take a look back at the year(s) that was!
Then chuck on over to part two, so the dang party goes all night!
Oh dang! Stephen King has a secret clone locked in a dairy farm’s basement! Will Lee uncover the truth in time? Will Eddie pen a critically acclaimed screenplay starring Amanda Bynes? Hard to say.
Eddie is moving forward in time, and we leave the 18th century for the much more recent 19th with Alexandre Dumas’ Count of Monte Christo!
It’s time for our fantastic Halloween special! This week Lee and Eddie are going through some top Halloween reads to send chills down your spine (if Eddie’s ASMR doesn’t get there first)!
Ling Ma’s debut apocalyptic masterpiece Severance. A deeply unsettling millennial joyride toward the end of days. Christian White’s debut psychological … More
Lee’s been reading some proper classics this episode! That’s right, it’s time for Agatha Christie! Eddie’s having some Eurasian feels about Dragon Springs Road, and have any of you heard about this Stephen King guy? Eddie reckons he might just be a one hit wonder, but Lee reckons he’s got a bright future head of him.
This week Lee and Eddie are off to the movies!
Stephen King’s IT has finally hit the theatres, and Lee is all set, popcorn in hand! Eddie is hiding behind her chair, but that’s pretty much par for the course!
To celebrate the release of this remake featuring the most terrifying clown in the world, Lee and Eddie are counting down their fave Stephen King books, Stephen King facts, and speculating on whether Eddie will ever sleep again. (No)
