Hello, and welcome to THE KINGCAST: Patreon Edition! 

We're Eric Vespe and Scott Wampler, lifelong Stephen King nerds and veteran film bloggers who have way too much free time on our hands (read: "are currently underemployed"). If you're reading this, chances are you're already a listener of our show - THE KINGCAST, a Stephen King podcast for Stephen King obsessives.

(Here's a link, just in case we're wrong about that:

The show's going great, but in the course of plotting out episodes and speaking with would-be guests, it's become clear that there's plenty more territory to explore beyond the bread and butter of our podcast - the many film and TV adaptations of Stephen King's work. 

Like what? Deep-dive interviews with folks who've actually starred in (or directed!) King projects. Commentaries for King movies we love (and, sure, maybe a few that we don't), which will also feature special guests. Curveball conversations focused on hyper-specific elements of King's work. We wanna get into ALL of that (we love talking about Stephen King and are happy to do it until our voices give out and the sun explodes!), but none of these ideas quite fit the format of our main show.

So, that's why we're launching this Patreon! The regular show will continue apace, with new episodes arriving every Wednesday morning, come rain or shine. The KINGCAST Patreon is for all the weird little detours and pit stops we wanna make along the way. 

Sign up, and in addition to those bonus episodes, you're also gonna get exclusive, weekly, King-related writing from the both of us (personal essays, King-related entertainment news/analysis, random rankings, recommendations and whatever the hell else we feel like writing) and, hey - might even be a few other nifty bonuses. You don't know.

Bottom line? We are confident that you WILL be satisfied with whichever tier you subscribe to, and we WILL be keeping this party going for as long as you'll have us.

Long Days & Pleasant Nights,
Eric Vespe / Scott Wampler
