The Chernobyl Podcast
Today the final episode of the HBO project "Chernobyl" was released - the best series according to IMDB users, where the other day it overtook Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad. The mini-series tells about one of the most terrible anthropogenic catastrophes of the 20th century - the explosion at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant reactor in 1986. Small, but strikingly capacious and tense, "Chernobyl" is not at all an entertaining sight: it is both a chronicle of the disaster itself, and a story about the difficult elimination of its terrible consequences.
Simultaneously with the Chernobyl episodes, HBO also released episodes of the podcast of the same name - the last one just came out today. In them, the creator and screenwriter of the series Craig Mazin and the host of radio NPR Peter Sagal discuss in detail the details of the Chernobyl disaster, as well as talk about real people who were affected by this event and how they are portrayed in the series. Among other things, Mazin shares interesting details of the production of the show and tells what the creators went to to tell this story so believably. The Chernobyl Podcast is available for streaming on all podcast platforms or YouTube.
