I know. I KNOW. It’s been way too long. But when life is tough, some of the more enjoyable parts of it can fall away.

But I’m back. And I promise to be back soon.

Richard Dawson and Arnold Schwarzenegger in the adaptation of “The Running Man.” Read the book instead, willya? You’ll thank me.

This time, I’m taking a flying tour through the Stephen King bibliography to look at how he deals with politics, and what this might tell us about King the man.

In this episode, I talk about Hearts in Atlantis, Firestarter, The Dark Tower series, the story “Everything’s Eventual”, and the Bachman books: Rage, Roadwork, The Running Man, and The Long Walk.

Next time, I’m going to continue the look at politics with a discussion of The TommyknockersUnder the Dome and 11/22/63.

Enjoy the episode in all of its hour-long glory. Download it here!
