Love These Post Show Podcasts

These HBO Max post episode podcast are always a must listen to for me because I love hearing about things that go down behind the scenes. On top that they always bring in some of the cast and ask them about the show and the scenes they do. I love how they asked everyone about Candy and if she really did it or not.

Love and death

I enjoyed the podcast.Nancy Miller’s voice is pleasant not like some of the cackling females that drink wine and crack jokes and really stray from the subject. Her laugh is a bit fake and out of place at times. But she does not step on the other persons dialogue nor does she constantly interrupt. She is a very good interviewer. Really love the show love and death. It’s a tossup between the Series and Candy. Love and death is a bit more artsy and concentrated on life in a small town small religious family community and it’s morales .

Nancy Miller’s First Episode - what was going on?

All the episodes in the series were very well done. With great questions and interesting guests that added to the experience of watching the limited series. Except for the first episode.

Episode one is puzzling due to Ms Millar’s maniacal laughter after her response to answers from the guests to her questions. Baffling & truly annoying behavior on behalf of Ms. Miller. Fortunately, she stopped being annoying & weird except here & there in the future episodes.
