Stephen King’s IT Then & Now- Let Your Geek Sideshow Podcast

This week, we are taking a trip to Derry, Maine to join the Losers Club and discuss the unique adaptations of Stephen King’s legendary horror novel about a killer clown and the loss of childhood innocence. This is Stephen King’s IT, Then & Now.


From across time and space, and throughout the multiverse, listen as multiple generations of geeks come together to discuss the iconic characters, events, and franchises that make up the very fabric of pop culture as we know it.

Let Your Geek Sideshow presents… Then & Now– a pop culture podcast!

This week, we are taking a trip down to Derry, Maine to join the Losers Club and investigate the mysterious disappearance of childhood innocence. With 27 years between Pennywise’s attacks, and a coincidental 27 years between adaptations, IT has become one of the new titans of modern horror. As Hollywood continues to look to Stephen King’s novels for inspiration, we want to examine the story that can take on as many faces as we have fears.

As long as children fear the monster under the bed, Pennywise will lurk in our imaginations. But despite the loss of innocence, the strength to overcome our fears comes from friendship. We survive and overcome the trials of youth. Growing up doesn’t have to mean losing everything that makes us who we are, so long as you’ve got a good group of Losers to back you up.

This is the Stephen King’s IT, Then & Now.
