Our next harrowing Halloween podcast is for all the Stephen King fans out there. Introducing “Strawberry Spring:” a new scripted, narrative podcast based on the popular short story from King’s classic 1978 collection Night Shift. The king of horror’s first foray into podcasting packs a powerhouse cast, including This is Us star Milo Ventimiglia and Euphoria’s Sydney Sweeney. Set against the backdrop of the sixties revolution on the fictional New England campus of New Sharon College, “Strawberry Spring” follows a journalist (Ventimiglia) who hears the name “Springheel Jack” on the radio, which rekindles memories from his time back in college when a serial killer was claiming victims during a strawberry spring. Inspired to find Springheel Jack once and for all, the journalist begins unraveling the dark and mysterious truth behind the killer’s origins. Figure out all the frightening findings by listening to “Strawberry Spring” right now.
