Description

Peter Sagal and Craig Mazin discuss the fifth and final episode of Chernobyl. Valery Legasov (Jared Harris), Boris Shcherbina (Stellan Skarsgård) and Ulana Khomyuk (Emily Watson) risk their lives and reputations to expose the truth about Chernobyl. On the podcast, Mazin exposes the truth about the finale. He compares the real show trial with the series's depiction, explaining where he took liberties and why. We’ll also hear from production designer Luke Hull about recreating the trial room. And finally, Sagal and Mazin talk about what’s happened since Chernobyl, and what they’ve taken away from this series.

The Chernobyl Podcast is produced by HBO in conjunction with Pineapple Street Media. Original music by Kaan Erbay.

the courtroom scene where Legasov uses the blue and red cards to explain the sequence of disaster was brilliant. Ukrainian people, the world should never forget your heroic sacrifices for the greater good.

This bridge of death is legend, yes, many people stood there but nobody died from it.

Валерия Ермакова The producers made sure to point out all the other areas that they embellished the story. why leave that one in? For instance, compressing all the scientists into one character (Ulana). Why would they say everyone that stood on the bridge died if they didnt have evidence confirming it. Read Svetlana Alexievich's book, "Chernobyl Preyer" also titled "Stories from Chernobyl".

Mike Christopher They clearly stated in this podcast that the bridge deaths were real. They believe up to millions of people died. Why would it be so hard to believe that a bridge so close to ground zero would result in dead people? Seems like a very bizzarre thing to argue against. And just because someone is Russian or Ukrainian doesn't mean they are informed or correct. I'm from the UK, does that mean people in the USA who study the UK and its historic events automatically know less than me because I live here? Of course not. Do you see where your logic does not hold up?

I want to say I'm surprised that it took till 2017 for them to build a containment area around it, but considering the whole thing was a giant shitshow from the beginning, I guess I'm not. This was an excellent series and set of podcasts. I would love to see/learn more about things like this in the future.

at least the Russians did what needed to be done to stop and contain this disaster no cost to high,unlike the Japanese look at Fukushima 8 years and it's still not cleaned up it's a joke

I live in Russia in a region, that is still cosidered influenced by that catastrophe. And we haven't even been taught about it in school. We knew the reactor blew up. And that's literally all the info we were given. So I'd lake to thank (again) the creators of this show, who made people remember and reseach this incident, who made people speak, and ask questions, and truly think about the government that had ruled the USSR, and is ruling now. Because nothing has changed since then. The government is still lying to us about everything, and the main principle of doing things is still "the cheaper the better"

Irina Zhdanova The governments of the USA, Russia, China, UK, Singapore, and Australia are the worst, especially with extreme spying and surveillance.

Can you imagine if those people hadn't given their Iives and the truth never came out. Those other plants could have destroyed the whole continent, if not worse

excellent show and podcast, my only complaint is that it's over. This show made me realize how many people sacrificed themselves not only for their country but this could have been a world wide catastrophie had it not been managed by the many underlings while the big wigs did nothing but spew their bullshit from far away safety.

This serie deserves to be seen worldwide. My highest respect to the creator and director, for keeping sensationalism under control and honoring those who suffered and died. Chernobyl, the miniseries, is a beacon of human decency.
