Peter Sagal and Craig Mazin continues The Chernobyl Podcast in part two.
This time they’ll discuss the untold story of how millions of people were at risk after the explosion, and how nuclear physicist Ulana Khomyuk (Emily Watson) makes a desperate attempt to reach Valery Legasov (Jared Harris) to warn him about the threat of a second explosion that could devastate the continent.
Mazin sheds light on the real-life scientists who inspired the composite character Khomyuk and demystifies how nuclear radiation works.
He also gives context about seemingly small details, like the poem being read on the radio, and we get more surprising answers from Sagal’s “really?” questions.
