Stephen King, Andrew McGahan, and Nicci French walk into a bar…
Just kidding! We have no punchline for that joke but Eddie & Lee do rave about all three authors in the latest episode of Crime Time Podcast!
Among other things, Lee & Eddie review the film adaptation of Doctor Sleep, The Lying Room by couple writers, Nicci French (did we mention they’re actually a married couple?), and the one and only Andrew McGahan’s The Rich Man’s House!

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.
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!

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.
