Stephen King's "The Stand." - Take your flu medication, head west out of the abandoned cities, and join us for our discussion of Stephen King’s classic novel “The Stand.” We discuss why we enjoy (literary) apocalypses, question King’s setting of the revised edition in 1990, and join forces with an impossibly wise Yoda figure to plan the ultimate battle between the forces of good and the forces of Vegas. Baby, can you dig your man? Post-show: Our own personal apocalypse plans, revisited. Host Jason Snell with Erika Ensign, Lisa Schmeiser, Monty Ashley and John Siracusa.
