Best Succession recap show

David Chen and Tara Ariano are hosting the best Succession podcast.

I love this show and I have listened to every single podcast I can about the show. This show is the best by a country mile. The hosts are versed in different aspects of today's media and can speak with authority about the story lines. The hosts also provide great context for the dialogue between the family. I like listening to them speculate what might come next and really like it when they compare their different takes on tricky scenes -- like when Shiv tells Kendall "How dare you apologize to me". So many different ways to interpret that line and scene -- great stuff to hear the hosts here try to get into that space

The thing that this show does the best is allowing both hosts to equally share in the conversation. Several other podcasts leave me feeling frustrated because one person gets talked over or cut off. David Chen and Tara Ariano have a clear respect for each other that shines. After watching the delicious viciousness that rules Succession -- this is a breath of fresh air. Great work

Love Succession and Tara!

A great podcast about a great show! My only criticism is that David seems to regularly speak over Tara and it’s frustrating, especially since Tara dives a lot deeper into the language and motifs of the show

"Stick to Shows"

Good recap with clips from the show played throughout. But Jesus lay off the real life Republican bashing and the whole holier than thou liberal rhetoric. It's a fake show to take us away from the daily slog of people getting fake mad about fake things. Just talk about the show.
