The fifth and final episode of HBO‘s critically acclaimed
and hugely popular Chernobyl mini-series aired two-and-a-half
months ago. That’s also when the fifth and final episode of the
show’s companion podcast, with show creator
Craig Mazin and NPR’s Peter Sagal, began streaming for all to
hear. On Thursday, the network announced that it was releasing a
sixth bonus episode of the podcast with Mazin, Sagal, and Chernobyl
actor Jared Harris.
Since Sagal spent most of the podcast’s first five episodes
discussing the ins and outs of writing and filming Chernobyl with
Mazin, the bonus episode largely focuses on Harris’ performance
as Valery Legasov, the Soviet scientist largely responsible for
investigating the nuclear power plant disaster and attempting to
combat its ill effects. However, Mazin also takes a moment at the
beginning of the episode to discuss the show’s modern relevance
in terms of Russia’s
recent nuclear-propelled missile explosion and the many
mysteries surrounding it.
Whether or not you’ve already watched all five episodes of
Chernobyl and the five official episodes of the companion podcast,
the new bonus episode with Harris is definitely worth your time.
You can listen to it wherever you listen to podcasts or check it
out below on HBO’s official YouTube page.
