Love the show

I love this show. Been listening since 2016. I listen after every episode. After I discovered the show I of course went back to listen to every past segment.

Doesn’t Discuss The Substance of the Episode

This podcast consists of interviews with cast or crew members who discuss their creative process. There is minimal discussion of the episode itself. This is not a podcast for viewers who are looking for breakdown of what just happened - the elements and themes of the story, the meaning of the events in the episode, how the plot has moved, etc. Sometimes, the podcast doesn’t discuss the story at all. If you’re looking for a discussion of the episode, this is not for you.
The podcast covers how the show is made. Eg what was it like for Noah Emmerich or Mathew Rhys to direct an episode in which he also acted, how did the designers create a particular set or costume, where do they find the cars and spy gadgets. In that sense it’s interesting. But for those wanting to break down the actual story, you will be disappointed.

You need an American host

If you love The Americans, this is a great podcast, despite the host who seems to misunderstand the entire series! Thankfully the writers usually disagree with her totally misunderstood interpretations of the characters!
