Marry Me Craig Mazin!!!!!

I was a tween when Chernobyl happened and was haunted by that event for years, but especially when at a Medical waiting room, i saw a magazine commemorating it’s 20th anniversary. As an art historian (& cinephile), people, factors, actions & reactions are among the paramount characteristics in my ‘storytelling’, and I assure you, this production is by far the most excellently realized docu-drama in a very long time. Such raw, poetic and tremendous attention to the TRUTH of the people directly implicated. Unimaginably well balanced so as not to fall in the trappings of morality/victim/tragedy/ gore-porn. Best of all, every shot & every word spoken was purposeful ( big up the editing team!). Thank you for this from Montreal Canada and bravo!

Gripping...

Exceptional! This is a well written, well researched story created by someone who’s passion and commitment to the truth is evident immediately! This is an important piece of history and this team went above and beyond the call to tell it.

Going beyond fanboy recaps

An enjoyable companion for the television series. Usually takes listener beyond simple recaps of every episode. Enjoy the one-on-one nature of the conversation. No need for tricks or special guests. Would liked to have seen deeper exploration of some of the themes promised in the first episode - troubled marriage of fictional and nonfictional narratives. But does a good job of revealing ‘tricks’ necessary to compact complex story into five hours.
