It was fun while it lasted, but in the end there are only two options. And The Castle Rock TV Podcast has decided to Get Busy Dying.

It is with heavy hearts that hosts Skipper Martin and Christopher DeFilippis bring the curtains down on the show, a mere 13 episodes out of the gate. But they go out in true Skiptopher style, with a whirlwind of talk, tangents and heartfelt goodbyes. There’s even some Green Mile discussion somewhere in it all.

Thanks to our listeners for your loyalty and support. We don’t know what the future holds for either of us, but it’s amazing fans like you who make the idea of a tomorrow possible.

Drive one last stake and shed a tear for loved ones bled dry, because we’re Leaving the Lot.

On this episode of the Castle Rock TV Podcast hosts Skipper Martin and Christopher DeFilippis bid Stephen King’s fictional vampire haven of ‘Salem’s Lot adieu with a look at the short story “Jerusalem’s Lot” — which predates the novel — and the ‘Salem’s Lot sequel, “One for the Road.”

We then review director Paul Ward’s short film One for the Road — and compare it to another King-inspired short film, The Woman in the Room, directed by then-novice filmmaker Frank Darabont.

And if that’s not enough, we tune into the BBC radio adaptation of ‘Salem’s Lot.

There’s also the latest news on Hulu’s Castle Rock series, and another listener giveaway.

Lance hilariously ribs Chris about some negative comments Chris made about his performance in the film. He also discusses what it was like being on set, working with the legendary director Tobe Hooper and proves himself to be what Chris said he was: an upstanding citizen, and a fine human being!

Thanks Lance!
