Nichole is diving back into Stephen King this episode and talking about Rob Reiner’s 1990 Misery – specifically the character of Paul Sheldon and his experiences in relying on a stranger to live and the aftermath of torture.

  • The Loser’s Club is a favorite podcasts related to Stephen King – wonderfully deep and thoughtful dives into King’s work and all things related. They have two episodes dedicated to Misery – one for King’s 1987 book and for Reiner’s film – from January 2019 that would be excellent places to start!
