The Stephen King Podcast Needs You!

Posted: February 28, 2017, 20:41:43


As most of you know nothing in this world is free. Not even running a podcast. It costs money to host and run a podcast and because of that we would like to ask those of you out there that enjoy listening to us talk for about 90 minutes a couple of times a month to help out.

The last months we have had over 5,000 downloads of each episode and if even a fifth of all of those who downloaded the episodes donate $1 each we would have money to cover the costs for quite some time. And I mean what do you really get for $1? Why not spend it on something you enjoy?

But please note that if no one donate we'll still keep doing the pod. We will still keep talking for about 90 minutes a couple of times a month. However, if you DO donate we will mention you in our podcast as a supporter of the show. Unless you want to be anonymous, then that’s OK as well.

Thank you in advance for your support and if you want to help out, just click on the link and enter an amount.

As always, we bring you the latest Stephen King news.

Special thanks to listener Lance Grey for sending in his thoughts about the stage play of Misery starring Bruce Willis and Laurie Metcalf.

We hope you enjoy this episode and, as usual, we want to hear from you.

Ep 50: Beahm Serves Fans A King Companion

Posted: October 13, 2015, 00:47:55


With your hosts - longtime Constant Readers - Hans Lilja of Lilja's Library and podcaster & writer - Lou W. Sytsma.

This is it! Our milestone - 50th episode of The Stephen King Podcast!

Woohoo!

As your co-hosts Hans Lilja & Lou Sytsma - we want to thank our Constant Listeners for following along with us on our Stephen King Podcasting path.

We wanted to make our 50th episode a special one and to do that we are honored to present a episode long interview with one of the - in his words - old guard Stephen King Chroniclers.

It's been 20 years since George Beahm updated his Stephen King Companion and a lot of water has passed under the bridge since 1995. George has updated his book and made more accessible than ever before. He'll talk about how the book is for the fans because it is not only about King and his works but also how those works impacted so many lives and how they in turn enriched the Stephen King fan community.

We asked for fan questions and you responded! Thanks to everyone who sent in questions. So listen and see if your question made the podcast.

But that's not all. If you sent in a question you really want to listen to this podcast because there's a CONTEST!

If you hear your question on the podcast, George Beahm proves his generosity not only in his interview on the podcast but to those lucky fans because.......

YOU'VE WON A COPY OF GEORGE'S BOOK!

So listen to the podcast, listen for your question, and if you hear it then listen to Hans on how to claim it!

What Do You Want To Hear In The Next Pod?

Posted: February 10, 2015, 10:43:12

First: Let me apologize that we haven’t delivered the podcast about Maximum Overdrive. I have had huge problems with my Internet provider that if I were to about would have to BiP out a lot of the words if you know what I mean.

Second: The Maximum Overdrive pod will have to wait due to scheduling problems but we’ll get to it eventually.

Third: As a comfort (and because we are a bit low in ideas) Lou and I have decided that you will get to decide what we’re going to talk about in the next pod. We will record on Sunday 22nd so it can’t be a thick book though but otherwise we are open to suggestions. Post them here on Lilja’s Library, on facebook or twitter and we’ll do the one or once that gets the most suggestions.

Welcome to Episode 34 of The Stephen King Podcast!

We're Back! After a summer hiatus we return with a KING Sized Episode and special returning guest - writer and Stephen King expert - Bev Vincent.

We have a lot of Stephen King news covering movies, tv series, stage, and of course books.

Bev joins us to talk about Haven as we talk about our thoughts on the series past seasons and the upcoming Season 5. Bev shares what he did on his summer vacation which included a set visit to Haven.

Then Bev sticks around and we compare notes on the current season of Under The Dome.

Before Bev leaves us, he sets our old school King horror taste buds salivating with his nonspoilery thoughts on King's next book - Revival - which he just finished reading. To say we are left chomping at the bit to get our hands on this is a vast understatement.

More details about the book:

SYNOPSIS

Few horror films in the history of television can boast the deadly seriousness, inspired casting, indelible images and lingering impact of Salem’s Lot. Tobe Hooper’s adaptation of Stephen King’s 1975 novel about vampires that infest a small Maine town was first broadcast in November 1979.

The three-hour film featured unforgettable performances by an array of stars — James Mason, David Soul, Lew Ayres, Bonnie Bedelia — along with one of the most truly terrifying monsters in the history of movies: the feral vampire Mr Barlow played by Reggie Nalder.

This book documents the gestation and production of the film. There are reminiscences from cast and crew, including new and exclusive interviews with Tobe Hooper, David Soul, cinematographer Jules Brenner and producer Richard Kobritz; dozens of images, including many never before published behind-the-scenes production stills; deleted scenes from the original teleplay; foreign posters and artwork inspired by the film; photographs of Ferndale, California, where the exteriors ofSalem’s Lot were filmed; and much, much more.

Is Golden Years the real deal or Fool's Gold? Or a mix of both? Listen to what we have to say.

Don’t forget to enter your email and name so we can contact you if you are the lucky winner. Oh, your computer needs a mic but today most computers do so that’s probably not a problem.

We also need you to speak English so that we understand what you say. You could speak Swedish and let me translate it for Lou and our other listeners if you prefer that. You could even speak Danish and Norwegian too if you speak slow…but that’s it. No other language will be allowed for the simple reason that we won’t understand what you say.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Ep. 21: Ghost Brothers Trapped Under The Dome

Posted: September 2, 2013, 23:36:33


Episode 21: Ghost Brothers Trapped Under The Dome


With your host Hans Lilja of Lilja's Library and Lou Sytsma.


Big changes for our 21st podcast!
New podcast host and a new name for the podcast.  Formerly known as The Lilja & Lou Podcast we decided to make the name more reflective of what it is really about - Stephen King. So the podcast will be known as The Stephen King Podcast going forward. Simple. Direct. And hopefully it will become more visible to Stephen King fans everywhere.

Also, since this host is more expencive then the previous one we'd like to ask anyone who can and feel they want to help us out to do so. We will still continue doing the podcast even if we get no donations but it would certainly make both our lives a bit easier if we do.

We have set up a PayPal account for this purpose so anyone who has a $ (or a few) that you feel you can spare, we’d really appreciate it. Send your donations to LiljaLouPodcast@gmail.com.

This episode features in depths reviews of the Stephen King / John Coguar Mellencamp collaboration - The Ghost Brothers of Darkland County.

We also review the first ten episodes of the hit CBS summer TV series Under The Dome based on the King book of the same name.

We hope you will all enjoy this episode and as usual we want to hear from you, good or bad, we want it all!

Podcast update

Posted: August 15, 2013, 10:29:18


Episode 21 of The Lilja & Lou Podcast is about to be released in a week or two. We apologize that it has taken a bit longer this time but with summer and all it couldn’t be helped. Also, we have gotten a new host for the podcast. The one we have been using earlier had restrictions that would have meant that older episodes would have had to go to give space for newer. Something we didn’t want to happen. So, we will have a new podcast host for new and old episodes when episode 21 goes live. That’s the good news.

The bad news is that it costs money. So, if anyone of you out there who enjoys the podcast wants to help us out with the hosting of the podcast you are most welcome. We will still continue doing the podcast even if we get no donations but it would certainly make both our lives a bit easier if we did.

We have set up a PayPal account for this purpose so anyone who has a $ (or a few) that you feel you can spare, we’d really appreciate it. Send your donations to LiljaLouPodcast@gmail.com.

Thanks!
