Great Companion to the Series

I’m a fan of the Masterpiece podcast as I am of the Masterpiece series. I like hearing the actors’ reflections on their characters and all of their insights on the writers and their job as actors. However, the interview with Alex Jennings was a bit tiring as Jace Lacob was repetitive in his questions and in general I don’t think he interviewed Mr. Jennings well at all. In fact, I have to agree with another interviewer that I don’t particularly think Mr. Lacob is the right choice for Masterpiece podcast. He sounds like he belongs in journalism that is lighter with more fluff rather than an esteemed series like Masterpiece. Otherwise, I think it’s a wonderful podcast idea. Perhaps another host soon.

A must for pbs fans

I discovered this podcast by chance. Some of my favorite actors are interviewed with wonderful insight into the characters. Great behind the scenes and extras to my favorite shows.

Really Poor Interviewer But Great Subjects

I would normally give a podcast produced by Masterpiece Studio a five-star and then some review but Jace Lacob is an insecure and poor interviewer. He asks questions, laughs at the right places unconvincingly and grovels and simpers respectably. That's not what I call an interviewer. Why oh why doesn't Masterpiece Studio replace him, please. ASAP.
However, the actors and producers fill in a lot of story, generally, for the listening audience; in particular the interviews for "Mrs. Wilson," which was such a fraught and difficult story to tell. I appreciated hearing the additional bits of information that fleshed out the tragedy of the heroine's life.
Thanks, Masterpiece Studio, for this podcast but reconsider its host.
