Posted: January 12, 2014, 23:50:32



With your hosts Han Lilja of Lilja's Library and Lou Sytsma.

Welcome to Episode 26 of The Stephen King Podcast!  This time we hit the road.

This is a special episode focused solely on Stephen King's November 2013 European Tour with stops in France and Germany.

Through the wonders of the Internet we go truly international this time with reports from Jeremy Guerineau for the French leg of the tour and Hans was able to go to the German leg of the tour.

Jeremy is the web site moderator of the French Stephen King website - Club Stephen King

Here is a list of all the media for the King's French appearances:
Press conference (video in english)

Evening with King (video in english, not translated simultaneously). We can see that King is having fun as well as being impressed by the translator

Recap (in french) of all the french events as well as numerous pictures & videos/audios (mostly in french)

Pictures & videos from the signing event

Thanks Jeremy for your report and the links.  It was great to meet you!

Hans does his usual stellar job reporting on the German leg of the tour.

Those of you that has followed our podcast, The Stephen King Podcast know that we keep asking you to send in comments, questions, opinions or anything else you can think of through the voice widget we have. You probably also know that we don’t get many comments this way…

Well, now we’re going to try to motivate you (bribe if you want) to send us comments. Everyone who sends us a comment between December 10 and January 19 will be entered into a drawing where the winner gets a free copy of the trade edition of Turn Down the Lights from Cemetery Dance. This is at present time the only place where you can read King’s new short story Summer Thunder. How about that? A new King story for a few seconds of your time? Not bad if you ask me.

All you need to do is go to the podcast page, click on the “Send Voicemail” button to the right. Press the “Start recording” button, talk, press the “Stop” button, listen to what you said (or skip it) and then send. 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!
