“The Stephen King Storytime Bonus Ep

Special Guest Juliette Miranda

Just a couple of lady podcasters talking about their favorite Stephen King stories

The Breathing Method” & “You Know, They Got a Hell of a Band


The Stephen King bonus eps do so well for us at Book Vs Movie that we decided to have fun with the format and talk about favorite King short stories/novels/screenplays and works that have not necessarily been turned into a movie (or a really cheesy one–stay tuned for those coming up!)

In this ep, Margo D. talks with Juliette Miranda of the amazing Unwriteable Rant podcast and we have a grand old time imbibing our refreshments (Margo enjoys a nice wine out of a can!) while each discussing one our favorite King short stories.

Margo D. starts with the novella The Breathing Method which appeared in the book Different Seasons in 1982. It’s the story that takes place in 1935 and told by Dr. Emlyn McCarron who meets a young pregnant woman named Sandra Stansfield. She is single and determined to have her baby in the most natural way possible and learns the then-new Lamaze method breathing from Dr. McCarron who soon falls a bit in love with her.

The ending of this book scared Margo D. so much that she waited 20 years to attempt it again. It has not been adapted as a film yet but is technically in development with director Scott  Derrickson (Doctor Strange and The Day the Earth Stood Still) attached.

Juliette Miranda then talks about one of her favorite king short stories “You Know, The Have a Hell of a Band” which originally appeared in the 1992 collection of rock and roll based stories–Shock Rock which was edited by Jeff Gelb.

In this story, a bickering couple (King’s specialty!) are hopelessly lost while driving on vacation. They eventually wind up in a town which just happens to be haunted by the ghosts of famous dead musicians such as Janis Joplin, Elvis Presley, and Buddy Holly just to name a few.

Because it is a Stephen King story–things get weird and creepy in no time. There was an adaptation of this story which appeared in the anthology series Nightmares & Dreamscapes and it is–kind of stinky. But it’s also fun and we have a great time discussing what we like about the Shock Rock book as well.

Margo D. also talk about her favorite story Shock RockBob Dylan, Troy Johnson and the Speed Queen by F. Paul Wilson.

Hope you enjoy this different take on our usual Stephen King bonus eps.

The Not Fade Away Podcast Ep 4 “The Who in Cincinnati 1979”


Not Fade Away Podcast

Follow up to Episode 4: The Who in Cincinnati

Welcome back to the Not Fade Away podcast! Today’s’ episode we talk about the tragedy at Riverfront Coliseum in Cincinnati that took place on December 3, 1979. On that night 11 people were killed trying to enter the doors for a concert by The Who.

At the time it was the worst concert tragedy in American history. “Festival Seating” was demonized and the term “stampede” was irresponsibly used to describe it and other incidents over the years. So what actually happened that night? Take a listen to this show!

In this episode, I am helped by someone who was key to the disseminating information the night of Monday, December 3, 1979, in Cincinnati, Paul Wertheimer, founder, and principal of Crowd Management Strategies. The information he gives us will be invaluable to truly understand what happened and why the same mistakes keep popping up around the world.

The full list of those killed that day are as follows:

Karen Morrison 15 Finneytown OH

Stephan Preston 19 Finneytown OH

Philip Snyder 20 Franklin OH

Walter Adams Jr. 22 Trotwood OH

Peter Bowes 18 Wyoming OH

Connie Sue Burns 21 Miamisburg OH

Jacqueline Eckerle 15 Finneytown OH

David Heck 19 Highland Heights KY (Who had escaped the melee only to go back to save people and get crushed in the crowd.)

Teva Rae Ladd 27 Newtown OH (She left behind a husband and two children)

Bryan Wagner 17 Fort Thomas KY

James Warmoth 21 Franklin OH
