The Evolution of Pennywise! Podcast Interview

This is one for hardcore Stephen King fans! I was delighted to be invited on to The Evolution of Horror podcast by the marvelous host, Mike Muncer, to do a deep dive on the story of Stephen King’s IT. There’s actually two different episodes on this.

This one is a no-spoiler review of IT: Chapter Two together with a subsequent spoiler deep-dive (where we see how it ties to King’s book) and then an interview with the director and producer, Andy and Barbara Muschietti.

This second one is a complete deep-dive on IT. We go over King’s original book, the miniseries, the audiobooks, IT: The Losers’ Club (the first of the recent films) and we previewed IT: Chapter Two. From my perspective, it is basically a sneak peak at some of the research from my book and I was so excited to be able to share it I accidentally screamed in Mike’s ear at one point. I’d be actively researching/playing with ideas for my book for 15 years, had written it through a very intensive two years (including running a world-first experiment that proved just how effective IT is) and pretty much popped. This one is Patreon-only, so if you want to listen, you’ll need to support the pod. It’s worth it – there’s not many podcasts that boast regular contributors who have edited Total Film, Den of Geek and have run The British Film Institute!
