A macabre urban legend of love, betrayal, weed, gentrification, cannibalism, and survival of the fittest. Our newest scripted fiction podcast The Horror of Dolores Roach stars Daphne Rubin-Vega and Bobby Cannavale. Written by Aaron Mark. Listen to the rest of the series on gimletmedia.com/dolores-roach or wherever you listen.
Two years ago, Gimlet launched its first fiction podcast: Homecoming. Now, this November, a television series based on the hit podcast and starring Julia Roberts is launching.  Alex Blumberg went behind the scenes as Homecoming went from podcast to TV production. In this first episode, Homecoming creators Eli Horowitz and Micah Bloomberg recount the journey, from concept to podcast to pitching the show to bigtime Hollywood producers. And we hear from some of the celebrities they met along the way. This is the first part of a four-part mini-series on the making of the Homecoming TV show.
Micah and Eli get to work, writing the scripts for the Homecoming TV show. But taking something meant only for the ear, and turning it into something for the eye... proves to be deceptively challenging. Plus, Alex visits the set of the show, to meet the small army of people actually building the visual world of Homecoming. This is the second part of a four-part mini-series on the making of the Homecoming TV show, which airs November 4th.
Being in charge of a big-budget TV production means having to make decisions. It's a new kind of power for Micah and Eli, and one that's sometimes uncomfortable to exercise. The words they write have real-world, three-dimensional-- and sometimes winged-- consequences. This is the third part of a four-part mini-series on the making of the Homecoming TV show.
Alex Blumberg sits down with the stars of the Homecoming  TV show-- Julia Roberts and Stephan James, and director Sam Esmail-- to talk about how they came to the project and what it was like to film it. This is the final part of a four-part mini-series on the making of the Homecoming TV show.

Great show! Wonderful acting. But... So.... do Walter & Heidi end up together... Or what??? Perry sure everyone was waiting for that conclusion... it would've only taken another 5-10 minutes to conclude that part of the story line. And I'm assuming there will not be another season, since it came to TV. Because television just trumps all else... right??? Oh well... 🙄

Incredibly engaging and enjoyable drama. I haven’t seen the television show so I can’t compare it at all. However that leaves me able to judge this on its own merit. As the mysteriousness of the first season ran its course and left me wanting to hear more, the second has a decidedly different feel. To me it appears the the show becomes self aware; the character development changes course and what seemed sure began drifting. It’s left unclear as to who is not lying because everyone in this wears the mask of deception at some point. Perhaps it is best to see the show after all to complete the picture Really well acted by everyone, but what else should one especially with the talent involved. It would be disingenuous to rate it below anything below stellar.

Drums in the 2nd season are an ear killer, especially if listening with earphones. Production needs work..

Should I listen to this podcast or watch the TV show first? Has anyone done both and have an opinion?
