Chernobyl is a show that is resolutely and solemnly about the past made in such a rigorous way that it can’t happen but make me think about the lack of rigor in our day to day consumption and production of information. NPR produced a podcast with Craig Mazin, the writer and producer of Chernobyl, and Peter Sagal so that they could unpack the levels of obsessive detail on the show. It’s a worthy companion to the hit show, an almost real-time director’s commentary, much of which is Sagal asking Mazin “Really?! That really happened?!” And the answer is always yes, holy shit, yes.
