The Chernobyl Podcast: Part Three

Open Wide, O Earth

The Chernobyl Podcast continues in part three.

In this podcast episode we’ll get to know more about Lyudmilla Ignatenko (Jessie Buckley), a Pripyat resident, and how she ignores the warning about her firefighter husband’s (Adam Nagaitis) contamination and how Valery Legasov (Jared Harris) lays out a decontamination plan, complete with human risks.

During the podcast, Mazin also breaks down how they filmed the divers scene with additional commentary from director Johan Renck.

Sagal and Mazin talk about scenes that were left on the cutting room floor, how much of Jessie Buckley’s actions mirror the real Lyudmilla Ignatenko’s, and more.

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