Welcome to this Podcast series from The Super Podcast with The King Zone! This podcast series is all about the adaptations of Stephen King, from the cinematic films, mini-series and TV movies!
Join your co-hosts ‘Super’ Marcey and the ‘Terrible Australian’ Bede Jermyn as they welcome a few guests on this very epic episode with returning guest Lance (The Horror Returns) and two first time guests Jay Black (only for part of the episode) and Steven T Boltz (The Knack Theatre) to discuss The Stand Mini Series from 1994 and The Stand Limited Series from 2020. Some of us have read the book, others haven’t, so what did we make of these adaptations?
