Stephen and Stephen. King and Colbert.

Play

Stephen King is someone I’d like to figure out.  Here are two questions about him that bewilder me.

First, how does he imagine such outlandish, fiendish characters and stories?  Where do his ideas come from?  What fuels his creative spark?

Second, how is he able to do what he does at such a high level for such an extended time?  Stephen King is not a one-trick pony.  He’s produced a body of work over nearly 40 years that’s sold over 350 million copies and scared the wits out of even more people than that.

This program asks, and keeps asking, those questions.  And gets some answers.  Listen and see what you think.  Here’s one of his answers to whet your appetite, “The road is hell is paved with adverbs.”

If you’re feeling anxious about listening to Stephen King, you can skip over to Stephen Colbert for a break (26:55).

Lots of entertainment here for you.  Enjoy.
