Episode Date
The Beating Heart
3377
On this packed episode, writer Craig Shilowich sits down with Nancy to talk about a reveal many viewers almost certainly assumed was manufactured — the very real Sophie, the French editor of "The Staircase" documentary, who falls for Michael Peterson; editor Sofia Subercaseaux discusses editorial objectivity and bias in filmmaking; psychologist Amanda Vicary tries to get to the bottom of why we--especially women--love true crime; and Academy Award-winning actress Juliet Binoche addresses what it's like to portray the series' most shocking character.

Common Sense

Showrunner/creator/director Antonio Campos returns to the podcast, and is joined by Emily Kaczmarek, the co-writer of this episode, to examine why–and how–the HBO Max series compressed the entirety of the Michael Peterson trial into a single episode. And Michael Stuhlbarg, who portrays defense attorney David Rudolf, discusses his role as the man upon whose shoulders Peterson’s fate rests. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

The Great Dissembler
3315
"The Staircase" researcher Michael Matthews describes the nearly overwhelming task of balancing an avalanche of factual elements, while also working with the writers room to mold those facts to best serve the interests of a compelling drama. Host Nancy Miller also speaks with lawyer, journalist, and social justice advocate Leora Smith about the subjective and often reckless nature of the forensic technique known as Blood Pattern Analysis (BPS).

Chiroptera

Co-showrunner Maggie Cohn discusses her role writing this episode, in which the introduction of the French documentary crew allows this series to comment not just on this case, but also on how it was covered, and the resulting tension between facts and an effective narrative when trying to tell a story. Plus, investigative journalist and true crime aficionado James Renner addresses his career covering crime, attempts to locate true crime's origin story, and reveals the surprising links between true crime and your college philosophy courses.

Host Nancy Miller sits down with creator/executive producer/writer/director Antonio Campos in a wide-ranging discussion covering how he first conceived of this project more than a decade ago after sitting in the courtroom during the Michael Peterson trial, how his vision for the material morphed from a feature film to an HBO Max series as the real-life story continued to grow, and the challenges of telling a factual story when truth itself remains so elusive. The episode also features a discussion with actress Toni Collette, who plays Kathleen Peterson, about giving a voice to such a tragic figure. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
