    The Apple Original series Foundation is back. Host Jason Concepcion and showrunner David S.

Podcast is like director’s commentary

If you wanted to know what the directors, producers, actors/actresses, special effects, writers, and other teams were thinking when they made this show, this is the podcast for you. It is nice to put voices and thoughts to the people making this series on the screen.

Honestly, as the show has gone on, the show is more like inspired by Foundation instead of based on Foundation. The TV series takes many different turns and outright becomes the antithesis of the books at various points. I think every series or film based on a different medium has both difficulties and opportunities in expressing the work. I disagree with many of the choices but this podcast is not the show and does a good job of being what a companion podcast should be.

I wish the podcast did address more of the divergences from the source material and had more of a retrospective at the end of the season. Too much of the focus is hyping up various mysteries of the season.

Thoughts

Podcast is good but Gaal actress has been posting support for Hamas (the terrorist organization) on social media. Docking points for sympathizing with terrorists.
