The Chernobyl Podcast: Part Four

The Happiness of All Mankind

The Chernobyl Podcast continues in part four! This time Peter Sagal and Craig Mazin discusses the second last episode of the HBO Chernobyl miniseries.

Valery Legasov (Jared Harris) and Soviet Deputy Prime Minister Boris Shcherbina (Stellan Skarsgård) consider using lunar rovers to remove radioactive debris, while Ulana Khomyuk (Emily Watson) faces government hurdles in determining the truth about the cause of the explosion.

Sagal and Mazin go deep into the exclusion zone; from where they filmed it, to the first person accounts the rooftop cleanup is based on.

And yes, they talk about the puppy scene.

The HBO Chernobyl mini series is both available on Amazon Prime and HBO for online streaming.
