In the fifth episode, host Peter Sagal sits down with The Plot Against America creator and executive producer David Simon to discuss Part Five of the limited series. As the drama intensifies, Sagal and Simon unpack the historical context for the chaos, including the phrase “America First.” They also discuss what it took to build an era-accurate newsreel theater, Sandy’s puberty-driven politics, and how Zoe Kazan shaped Bess’s heartbreaking ultimatum. The next episode of this podcast comes out after Part Six of the series. The Plot Against America airs Mondays at 9 PM on HBO. The Plot Against America Podcast is produced by HBO in conjunction with Pineapple Street Studios.
