Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and AJ Mass (@AJMass) trip down the rabbit hole to discuss "Dark," Netflix's German language drama all about a small town with big problems in the form of lost children, lost time, and mysterious caves, among other forms of literal and existential dread. Described by some as a successor to "Lost" and "Twin Peaks," Josh and AJ start their discussion of "Dark" in spoiler-free terms, before going deep into the caves with full spoiler detail for seasons one and two. Spoiler discussion begins around the 20 minute mark. Josh and AJ will return to discuss the third and final season when it's announced, and will return even sooner if feedback warrants an additional podcast. Tweet their way (and also @PostShowRecaps) with all your questions and comments about "Dark."
Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Emily Fox (@emelette) break down Succession season two, episode two, "Vaulter." They podcast not because their dads told them to, but because they genuinely want to do it for reasons they cannot explain ? like a kid taking candy from a candy store, or a grown adult stealing a pack of batteries from a bodega for no reason other than... well, he can?
In "Vaulter," the HBO drama continues dragging Kendall Roy into darkness, as his father Logan forces him to shutter a beloved project. Kendall surprises both his father and the audience alike with the ruthlessness in which he executes the command, proving once again that there's nothing he isn't willing to do on behalf of dear old dad. It's a bleak display of power, one that even the wicked Roman Roy couldn't quite enact, his best efforts to impress his dad notwithstanding. Meanwhile, Shiv Roy decides to go all in on the plan to succeed her father, dropping out of Gil Eavis' presidential campaign in big, barn-burning fashion. Bonus: Cousin Greg identifies his moral code and gets a brand new apartment.
Josh and Emily break down the events of the episode and field feedback from listeners. Their next podcast will recap season two, episode three, "Hunting." Send in questions and comments for that show by reaching out on Twitter @PostShowRecaps.
