2.23 | This is IT: The Stephen King Episode

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)

2.14 | Stephen King, Trial and Error, & Perilous Pranks

Eddie has the flu! That’s right, Lee is risking life and limb by sitting anywhere near the cloud of germs that is Eddie right now. You could say that Eddie is at the centre of The Dead Zone! Or maybe that’s what Lee’s reading this week… Eddie binge-watched the entirety of Trial & Error, and reckons it’s pretty good! Unless that’s just the fever talking! Lee wants to know how anyone survived the invention of the prank show, and Eddie should probably go cancel that order of bees that she was gonna hide in Lee’s car…

All this and more in a frankly excellent episode of Crime Time Podcast!

2.08 | The X-Files, Aliens vs Ghosts, & The (Stephen) King

This week Lee and Eddie debate Aliens vs Ghosts, talk fave episodes of The X Files, Lee still won’t stop talking about Stephen King (who could blame her), and they discover that there are other Crime Fiction podcasts in the world. Who would have thought it!

If you want to hear a review from Lee’s mum, buy us a coffee, or hear Eddie’s latest elevator pitch for this season’s new blockbuster thriller, then sit down, get comfortable, and tune in to this week’s episode!

2.02 | Doug Johnstone, Stephen King, & Rewrites

Lee and Eddie are back to their constant bickering over which one of them Stephen King might adopt and who’s allowed to make edits (and when). Lee (who Stephen King would totally adopt if Eddie weren’t the obviously better choice), gets in some sucking up with a glowing review of Bag of Bones. Eddie (who has great hair and is really good at pretending to lose at board games) reviews Doug Johnstone’s Crash Land, and isn’t sure about aviation anymore.

1.45 | Karin Slaughter, Rose Maddest, & Frankenfiction

After a long week of grappling with technical issues, Lee and Eddie are back, and they’re ready to go! Lee still can’t get over The King, Eddie’s pretty sure she hasn’t misunderstood Karin Slaughter, and get yourself ready, because Eddie is about to drop some high-quality trashy fan-fiction on air.

All this and more in episode 45!

1.44 | Stephen King, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, & Frankenstein Fan Fic

Eddie asks twitter for their book opinions, Lee reviews the great Stephen King once more with Rose Madder, and it is revealed that Eddie may or may not have written some fan fiction at some point maybe. Maybe.

1.39 | The Conjuring 2, Ludlum, and IT

What makes horror scary? What makes mystery mysterious? What makes clowns so terrifying?

It’s clowns. Clowns make clowns terrifying.

Lee and Eddie search for the answers to these compelling questions as well as trying to figure out how long you need to give a book before you finally admit defeat? Eddie wants to know if 15 years is too long.

1.36 | Val McDermid, Isaac Asimov, & Shelfies

Eddie just can’t stop raving about Val McDermid’s amazing radioshow of John Wyndham’s The Kraken Wakes, Lee is still talking about Stephen King, and we take a trip back in time to the future as imagined by Isaac Asimov in the 1950s (that’s right, Eddie googles stuff from time to time)!
