January 8, 2021

As most fans know by now, Haven is based on the novella, The Colorado Kid by Stephen King. The creators of the show pitched a show out of the story, but we wondered if we could do the same for another Stephen King book called Joyland. Both hailing from the Hard Case Crime imprint, hosts Alex and Rich French each take a crack at creating a show and pitching it to each other and you, the listeners.
